Defense fleets

Post by Galwail » Wed Mar 21, 2012 7:52 pm

I have tried the game again after couple of months and I can't add ships into defense fleets. Is it possible or is it still in the "to do" list?

Just put a bunch of ships into a fleet, then send them to a system. You can also place ships from the reserves inside the system
Twas the night before Zuulmas, and all through the cluster
The races engaged in their usual bluster
The Tarka called everyone upstarts and pests
The Hivers all swarmed to defend their deep nests
The Liir stuttered about and left messages cryptic
The Morrigi hid both below (and above!) the ecliptic
The Humans they lay all smug in their beds
(While visions of sige drivers ran through their heads)

But deep in the void
Was the gathering storm
For a weasel alliance
Had started to form…

Why dont you just make Platforms?? BR platforms, Torp Platforms, Drone Platforms.

Why you want normal ships eating up your Defense CP points is beyond me when you can just make a fleet and leave it at the system :lol:

Defense fleets are for system centric assets like platforms, SDBS, Minefields, police cutters and Monitors. Full mobile assets are considered Full Fleet Assets.

Because I don't want to see those defense fleets on starmap or when choosing fleets for missions.

EDIT: Besides defense fleets are ideal for my outdated cruisers. I don't need super modern cutting edge anti-matter cruisers guarding my planets against specters.

EDIT2: Now I see, that my answer does not react on your post at all :oops:
