Were they fixed? That's news to me. I tend to PVP a bit and just within the last few months one of the people I red badged reported that someone else from an entirely different legion coincidentally red badged at the very same moment. Can't attest to the accuracy of the report since I wasn't on the receiving end, but if it's true then the bug that got one of the old EOTS powers banned probably still exists. And, if that exists, my presumption is that the game probably still has either all of or most of the other overflow types of bugs that have been reported by various players in the past. It's impossible to know since most of the serious players wouldn't even try to test this stuff themselves and I'm pretty sure that even if anyone actually had, they wouldn't report whether or not they still worked for fear of being banned just for having tried the cheat.


A person can be killed at the same time still, but only one person actually gets the badge. I had it happen a couple of times back when I was gathering reds to rank darmos. Just a freak occurrence that happens from time to time. not game breaking by any means.

Good riddance to bad people if you ask me.

You know, that was years ago, and the bug was eventually fixed as a result. Dan didn't take any action on them at the time, mainly because it could happen without anyone even trying. You're just beating a dead horse now.

And, Tree, did you really mean to say "Tree is and always will be #1" or did you mean that "Tree" to be "EOTS"?

Tree is #1, talking people not legions :roll:

And I wouldn't say the bug was fixed so much as switched to a new and much worse bug imo.
For bases you can see the effect like crazy if you have a highly active powerful legion.

Back before the fix, you hit the base and I hit the base at the exact same time and both our damages are counted to the base. If it so happens that both hits are individually enough damage to kill said base, double rewards.

After the fix, you hit the base and I hit the base at the exact same time. Only 1 of our hits count. We both spent 5 energy and we both clicked and we both got experience and damage from the base and the damage listed to our name went up but only 1 of our hits counted towards decreasing the bases hull/shield.
This means that a highly active powerful legion mashing on a base that needs say 2 million damage to kill it including shield regeneration actually can end up doing as high as 2.5 - 3 million damage. We would also see DCN getting as high as 150% damage needed to kill, imagine 11 people locked on a 10 person elite and the elite still lives...

For larger bases we would actually ask people to stop hitting the base if they were doing less than 300 a shot because the risk of someone's 20 hit shot replacing someone's 550 hit shot was just not worth it.
Wild to imagine where the fastest dps to a base was when just your top 5 to 10 hitters are hitting. Add in 30 more mildly powerful ships hitting and all you get are sub par hits blocking out 500+ hits.

This "fix" is why EotS never bothered to get a new base partner. It was detrimental to our ability to kill large bases if we had a bunch of lower rank folks hitting the base and cancelling out our much larger hits.

Maybe the new bug isn't an issue these days as I imagine the server strain is down significantly with fewer people playing this game as ferociously as say a year ago.

I've only just begun to fight!

Seriously though, I didn't say I was outright quitting so don't get your hopes up.
I gotta figure out what to do with the overwhelming wealth I've acquired in this game, gave 6 mil Em to someone on a whim so just a few dozen hundred more whims and I might be out of stuff to give away.

Not to mention this lvl 10 base.....

Do you want me to leave so I don't tell everyone how your legion was unable to kill my base with 1 fixer?

I guess its made even worse by the fact IF took it down a week or so ago, you'd think youll get something great from a crate from a LVL 10, but i still got a dummy.
