As an Indy, Normally if your finishing your last grabs with 12-14 days left, and have 60/40 jets/turrets, you need to spend a few days boosting defense to protect from retal, THEN when you’ve out grown any threat, slowly transition over days to a higher jet count as the threat level lowers, that’s optimal for the situation on this server. There’s always a nutcase who will blast you if you go all jet with 2 weeks left, it’s too tempting for people. You have to slowly transition as the risk level decreases. In alliance server, yeah sure change to an optimal expense level right away, but here no. It’s more of a risk doing that than grabbing with 12-14 days left and having a few extra days with a few percentage more turrets.
Primary server is the best because it isn’t just the optimal math. It’s also feeling what’s going on around you and reading your opponent’s. Negotiating through all these players that play by their own rules is far more exciting.
First off; dont post that here. you need to change your post.
Secondly; thats really dumb to play with so high defence late game... Those last hits that required them to get those defences are really costly for them. Not only do the acres not pay back as many times as earlier acres that were aquired with lower jet/oil expenditures but also those turrets are damned expensive.
