Scrapping a Gate

Post by Pavane » Thu Mar 07, 2013 8:50 pm

Why can't I scrap a deployed gate like any other ship or station?

I understand you have to dissolve the fleet first or something to that effect. Haven't played Hivers enough yet to give a first-hand account but that's what I heard.
Zed's TARs (sample):
Fractious Allies -- Hiver vs. Hiver, with allies
Who Let The Bugs Out -- Hiver vs. Tarka and Zuul
Tarka Ascendant -- Tarka vs. Hiver and Zuul

Good thinking. Dissolving the fleet is an option, and when clicked the confirmation box appears. Even after confirming the dissolution of the gate fleet nothing happens. I thought I would wait until the next turn to see if there was a delay for some reason but, after 50+ years in an enemy home system the enemy attacks the gate that turn and destroys it! I will try it in on of my own systems.

EDIT: No, you can't dissolve a gate fleet unless you have a colony in the system (i.e. a Reserve for the gate ship destination after dissolution).

This is a bug that should be fixed soon as far as I know. Mecron commented on it in another thread discussing a similar situation.
