I bet that this topic was brought up before but i did not manage to find it.

I ask for your help in the matter of WPs movement. i can't explain myself which is the order for this.
For example :
- WP-A has the target on WP-B. Sometimes WP-A follows WP-B but sometimes it goes to WP-B last position ( for example: the planet on which WP-B was yesterday ).
- the 2nd problem : two different house WPs that try to get a planet in the same day. which one will atack first ?

kind regards
Thaumaturg

Hi Thaumaturg,

a) depends on intercept order. If WP A intercepts B, then B is moved first, then A follows (necessary to give A a chance to catch B)

b) this is random

As both points lead to problems, K2 will feature simultaneous movement of all units (wps, fleets)

Bye,
Maelstroem

jumps happen before normal movement. you can find out the direction of the jump by intercepting the jumping wp.

the fact, that an intercepting wp follows the jumping one, can only mean that the jump happens in first position. my second statement was just the accomplishment.

also a wp that is parked on a planet can escape from another wp which has course on this planet and is <60 ly away, simply by activating the jump drive... that's a fact you also know and it's another evidence for the hypothesis that jumps happen before normal movement.

This does not neccessarily mean that it's always like that, Kosmor is full of bugs or at least quirks.

Maybe Kosmor has bugs or quirks ... but during this war I always felt that others know them better and exploit them very well. While we are making a lot of safe manoeuvers because not knowing them.

roll on kos 2 so we are all back to a level playing field and all of us learning from the start the new system.
And hopefully as we play and find bugs they can be sorted out as soon as known right away so no one can take advantage of them unless they can be kept secret by some players thus not letting anyone know hoping to gain advantages, but then hopefully they will come to light and be fixed.

If someone found out a bug or realized how things works by his own experience ... I can't blame him too much if he doesn't tell. It's his advantage.
I won't like if they know more from Maelstroem (just for example) and don't share it.
In part it's our fault that we didn't experienced more in times of peace. Then we would have discovered more. Now ... in war time ... it's too risky for trials.

But if Maestroem told us it's random ... then random should be.

regards !
Assisi

making use of bugs, glitches, errors to get an advantage is in a way cheating if there are bugs, glitches, errors they should not be used they should be reported to get them fixed and not take advantage of these things let alone keep secret.

I guess it is a mentality of some gamers that they will cheat any way they can.
and others gamers that would not cheat in any way.

I don't think much of any players that use bugs and glitches, errors in any game to get an advantage.

If someone finds a bug or glitch or error of any kind that can be profited from then it should not be used and should be reported to the game owner or admin if there are any admin ? to correct it.
And if it can not be corrected and the use of it not prevented then there should be notification of this to all players and also informed on the forum.
====================
Terms of use and game rules:

6. If users recognize errors, illegal content or any other irregular things, they must instantly contact the administration.

Some of the so called bugs may be features.

I also believe that some may be features.
But ... being feature and also be random in the same time ... is not possible. Excepting the situation when "being random" is the only feature Razz

I don't blame anyone for anything ... just want to find out and play this 100%.
But there is something "misterious" around ... that I don't like.
Everybody should know the features of K.

regards !
