Building up your Defenses

Post  sridanu on Mon Jul 13, 2009 3:19 pm

Defenses help protect your ships and Resources. And with the right combination of defenses you can sleep a lot better at night knowing that your resources and ships might be safe. However there are some rules that you must look into very carefully if you want to have a defense that can actually protect you.

Tip no 1. Your planet is NEVER truly SAFE

As hard as it is take in your defenses will never truly save you . Even if you have the so called Ultimate Defense eg:- (1000 Plasmas, 100,000 odd Rocket Launches) it can be taken down. It may take some time and it may take some effort but eventually all defenses can be broken. Especially in a Universe with ACS.

Tip no 2 Plan your defense
Plan your defense early on a good strategy is to have a set ratio of defense structures. i personally like the below ratio but you are welcome to have your own.

Rocket Launchers - 50 (Good Fodder, i.e saves your Heavy Defenses from blowing up)
Gauss Cannon - 1 (Good Against Medium Ships)
Ion Cannon - 3 (Provides High Shield value)
Plasma Turret - 1 (Good Against Medium / Heavy Ships)

I personally do not like to waste resources on Light Lasers or Heavy Lasers as they become very inefficient later on in the game. And since they use up a lot of crystal they are pretty much worth less.

Remember that the objective here is to make your self as unprofitable as possible. And Plasmas are one of the most effective ways to do that.

Tip no 3 ABMs

IPM's (Inter Planetary Missiles) are one of the most effective ways to get rid of defenses. Once hit by a IPM a defense will not repair it self. So always have a high number of ABMs to protect your defenses.

Tip no 4 Fleet save and Resource Save

Dont leave anything more than your defenses can handle. Your defenses can defend your planet. But if you have loads of resources and have a huge fleet posted there. A high ranker will always be out there to get you.
