Undo T3 MEX buff

Postby FunkOff » 20 Jun 2018, 01:21

This is a request to return T3 mex to Vanilla FA levels. That is 12 basic production and lower cost.

Pros:
- Upgrading to T3 mex takes less time (less sim city time, get to combat stage faster)
- Losing T3 mex is less of a hit (less sim city time to rebuild lost bases)
- Lower mass production bonus over T2 (choosing not to upgrade past T2 is not a certain defeat)

Cons:
- Super late game has lower total mass


Why do this?

I hate how many times I get murdered by another player while I'm still upgrading to T3 mex (it takes FOREVER) while a third player then murders both of us because he was allowed to get T3 mex unmolested.

I get T3 faster which means I can do combat faster

My opponent is finding away to attack me before I get T3 mexes

You know where it is fixed? !summon Exotic_Retard
When we had ZeP's ladder system I played more 1v1s on only Winter duel, than I play actual games in current trash they call ladder. Makes me so sad.

If you want a slightly serious answer

"combat stage" doesn't exist unless you are talking about game enders > t3/t4 arty spam. The fact that people don't build combat units but just eco up is the players fault, not the game.

You can use this argument for everything. 'Losing a nerfed t3 pgen is less of a hit', 'Losing a cheaper hq is less of a hit'. Maybe prevent losing your t3 mex instead? Also it's not like rebuilding a single t3 mex is a big issue. And if you have to rebuild a lot of them clearly something else went wrong and the t3 mex has nothing to do with it.

Same can be said for t1>t2 mexes or t3 mexes > massfabs/sacu's. Eventually the player with more mass income will have a higher and higher chance of winning. Why is the t2>t3 stage the only bad one?

So you want the game to change because you got shit allies?

Losing 1 T3 mex out of a total of 10 will continue to be a loss of 10% in your mass income... so no valid point.

Simcity will only take longer with lower income. :P
