Zeus are a good weapon.  I've chipped away at inactive turtles with them before.

So you just want handouts? Okay. I get it.

That's not quite what I said was it. What you're doing is akin to giving the rich guy $50 and the poor guy $5 then feigning disbelief when the poor guy complains.

I see the point but the defenses on the NPC that spawn from me are more in response to my Zeus fleet than my actual defenses. For my RSP size my defenses are low. I believe this is the reason for the difference in the ratio in defenses to RSP in my NPC. Matt can you verify this for us.   

Matt you never answered....

It doesn't matter. The % of the RSP that goes into defence is already pre determined by BFG.  If that % is 90% then your defence composition will determine how that 90% is spent, thats all.

One quick question.. do you run the script that gives the actual dsp, or is that showing the correct dsp?

My entire fleet gets trashed against that! lol!!

My script shows total dsp so take home dsp is only 150m, It's still ridiculously profitable with a zeus fleet, even 20k will take 30m dsp out of it with no losses.

Just one simple suggestion to fix this problem (yes, I've suggested it before) - bring in the Thanatos!

Bringing in the Nova ships would be a grand surprise.

Not exactly sure on this ....pretty sure i have seen someone say that along with this percentage that it is also galaxy specific, so the ones that spawn off YNCC do so only in gal 25... would need Matt to clarify on that front...

The only thing that the NPCs would base off of YNC is their RSP if they selected him to spawn off of.

After careful consideration I have decided to stop giving my guys probe rides. I based my decision on this pole and the messages I received from some of you.  I would like to make one thing clear, SNFU and Scotius Prime had no bearing in my decision.

I would also like to point out I am going to continue to help my guys grow and when they have 25k Zeus they are going to do GA with me. They will will still pass everyone in the top 50 because they are going to have bigger NPC to attack. It will just take them a little longer to do it.
