Post Qualms with how % base shipments are calculated
How come former members' upgrade percentage are added to only current members'? This doesnt make sense and it should be changed so that the former members' upgrade percentage should be split evenly between all members.

if you look at the upgrades to the base .. everyone, including former members, are assigned a % based on their total contributions (which equate ctp and EM at the same ratio for some strange reason known only to Dan). when former members (or visitors paid to make massive energy donations) depart .. they still keep their percentage .. so if the base output is assigned based on percentage contribution, a bunch of base production is lost to those who are no longer members. the OP seems to want that re.apportioned.

i think it's fair the way it is. if someone else built the base, but is no longer there, the fact that remaining members can't re.apportion the % contribution is part of the appeal / opportunity cost. so with the big dogs out of the outhouse, keeping the base distribution divided evenly between all members is the only way to get maximum base output. doing it the OP's way, means that a lvl 8 base could give full production to a lowbie rank at 100% contribution .. which would just incentivize more alt.cheating.

I dont think its lost, I think it somehow divvied up amongst the members who have donated to the base.
I was saying that if Bob donates 40% to the base and leaves then everyone should get whatever 40%/61 is (if you have a 61 man legion).

It's a minor annoyance at best, the actual divide is different from the 'leaderboard' and correct as per the division. It would be nice if the inactive and ex legion members weren't counted in the % tally and moved down the list positioned after current members, making the stats correct both when looking and claiming.

any suggestion that benefits cheaters more than actual players of the game is an automatic thumbs down from me.

Are you certain about this? Because I don't think this is the case, which is the point I have been trying to make

I have noticed some Trainees/Graduates are listed as Current, when they havent been in the legion for quite awhile
