I really hate this sabotage, especially inside the first couple of weeks at the beginning of an age. Makes a person just not want to play anymore.

It also sucks when you can't take more than like 1 dagger off someone who's able to harass your whole chain. I like this age's sabbing far more than last age's. And before you cry that I'm a sabber out to see his own cause boosted, I'm ashamed to say that I ranked hard last age, but rankers also like to be able to sab!

If you are getting sabbed this early in the age, you must be doing some stupid chit. (low-gold hits, etc..._

Some AA's are really taking the piss, i cant remember who it was but someone was asking for 30mil min hit, it looked a reasonable AA until i realised that was 10 turns TBG.
Its so easy to bank every 5 hours so if everyone stuck to their AA then they would never get hit.
But if you are hitting for gold you have to take the risk that they wont end up outgrowing you and having the power to sab you for the rest of the age.

true, but theres a huge gap in experience between me and my pall
when he spoke to me about those sabs it seemed to be coincidence, he attacked you, but didnt knew who you were
he just started to explore the roc fields ;)

i was looking for 20mil + hits

In that case, I will leave him alone, as I usually only sab for a day or 2 on noob hits.
I just thought it was personal. :wigglinge

Btw, I took you off iggy, so behave, and you can solve these issues in PM.

Forgive me mods for "mebbe' straying off topic...Not sure what the topic is, but it seems to be about bitchin about sabs on newbs, so I guess it was related...:whatgives

sabbing is looking good

i've had some RF scum in my logs this weekend, and lost items fast
sab rules are definitely tighter
i've sabbed some tools this age, but not enough to get a clear view on the ratio of succes

Sab has gone from being difficult to sab much from anybody at massive cost to getting 10/10 for next to no cost.

Absolutely from one extreme to the other.

How about something in the middle somewhere.

Somebody said build up your sentry so you dont get sabbed and sab back. A bit futile if you dont have the time to click 100k per day and bank every 2 4 or 6 hours to keep what you have.

Sorry, you lost me this age.
The game is no longer worth a pinch of rocking horse shit.

Don't know about you, but taking 5-10 million weapon damage every other time I sab 100 million sure isn't "no cost". I don't ghost all that often, either. One in every 10 people or so. The game is always a futile battle against odds. Either sabbing is an effective tool and is used by everybody as a war tactic (thus making it impossible to escape in any case), or sabbing isn't an effective tool and is used by nobody. There are no in-betweens.

/QUOTE]

i said that and i don't click and i have reasonable sentry and spy.. you get could yourself unit production and get someone in your alliance to help you look for gold and spend your turns... you could easily raise your stats... and i dont bank 24/7 either :)

and i've noticed too that with a bigger armoury and higher spy rating, the repairs are starting to be more costly and i rarely ever get in 10/10 now whereas even just last week i was getting in x10 a lot
