there's always next set trumpoz. :D

i totally screwed up this set. was targeting 30k land. went straight to 380 CS right off the bat cause market conditions were excellent for a casher at the beginning but everything suddenly got SSed into DR oblivion. couldnt find any decent targets.

when i forcefully grew enough to hit the bigger targets which arent so deep in DR, the market spiked.... lol

Stony - possibly not next reset.

Im always asleep at a crucial time in the set for techer, where the late running indies such as CX and Assassin are doing their final tech up to sell for the mil spike. As a teacher IRL in Australia classes start 3 hours before the end of the reset....

This reset everything aligned - stupidly cheap oil meant oil destock was incredibly profitable, i got hit a couple of times early and got retals for 3x the land. I managed to avoid the DS idiocy. People switched away from techer which leveled the market somewhat. I woke up at stupid o'clock twice by accident so I checked ingame and got a couple extra sales in (would much rather have slept through). When I did get hit it was late reset and meant I lost out for maybe 100 turns. I'm a fluff-head moron lol...... not going to try and do an oil destock again without instructions next to me. Annoying but it is just a game - trying to pick which country is CX is also part of the fun.

I had 22mil barrels and the bushels needed buy it out.

classes starting 3 hours before the set ends really screws things up. lol. i wouldnt know which strat wouldnt require you to be there during that last 3 hours. ahhaha.

also, you should've sold 10m of that oil to me. i had 3b cash on hand with more behind waiting to buy them at 100ish. :P

its not that hard to find CX really but i wouldnt share how here. there will be some griefers lurking. :P

Congrats CX, & everyone in tt..

Oil destocking techer is perfect for it. Im thinking some sort of casher - get insanely fat before going to bed and cashing 400 turns the next morning...... dunno. Long weekends and school holidays are good for netting.

Or I could play douchebag again, or target Helmut, or swirvey shark.

i think you should stick to a techer for an oil destock.

its hard for a casher to be able to find that excess cash early and mid set to stock oil. all the excess cash goes into tech. the difference between 170% and 150% mid game is huge. at 170%, you do not need to cash extra turns to finish building your acres.

plus, with all the crazies and dumb SS that puts targets into DR oblivion nowadays, you'll need weapons tech to help deter topfeeds early on and mil strat to optimize your grabs.

for myself, i would aim to get to 25-30k land by turn 900-1000 then max out my tech and sit at 20m turrets by turn 1100-1200. to achieve this, i'll need the stars to align as well... hahaha.

only came very close to this so far in my 5-6 sets back with a theo for the fast bpt (i was at 100 bpt) and it wasn't done perfectly as i was still quite fresh from a very long break. only managed to reach 30k at 1100 turn i think.

quite dangerous to play theo (because of the low max weapons tech) and aim for that kinda acres with topfeeders around though. would have to sit at 20m turrets instead of a usual 10m (which is more than enough for a normal game) during stocking which effectively shaves off 4-6m nettworth at least.

you don't have to waste time and target them. just leave them be. just adjust your game play as best you can and consider them NPCs. after i got hit last set, i just sold down my turrets to reduce upkeep and increased cash per turn. still lost a chunk of nettworth but managed a decent finish. :D

if it gets too much, take a break from the game, hope that the game admins make adjustments (PS strength in this case i feel) and come back after a bit.

if no adjustments are being made, the topfeeding NPCs are still here and no signs of anything from the admins to address this matter is announced by the time you come back, then just look for another game to play cause this means that the admins doesn't care about the game or server at least. when admins don't bother to address issues voiced by the players, the game will die sooner or later so might as well go play a better game earlier and have less stress. :D
