What do you guys think about putting a limit on hv’s and sv’s on armageddon, since no CV can get into the planet (unless they do SWP tactics) our bases are way overkill for an invasion, not sure what would be a good limit thou since we need about 8 defence hv per base to defend all sides and 1 combat hv and sv per member during attack/defense.
So what about:
HV limit = 8 + 1 per faction member.
SV limit = 1 per faction member.
Lets run some numbers to see how this effects things:
FDM 10 members: 8 + (10x2) = 28 cores from hv and sv and + 1 core for BA. 29 cores used for a 10man faction.
PKA 44 members 8 + (44x2) + 1 = 97 cores from a 44 member faction (half of planet max.)
Which means if U-P + PKA are on planet almost no one else can live there or attack.
Logic: the bigger the faction the more inactive members there will be, so:
What about a fall off to counter act offline members using up valuable core space.
If a faction is 1-5 = no alterations.
If a faction is 5 -20 = -20% cores
if a faction is 20 -30 = -30% cores
If a faction is 30-40 = -35% cores
if a faction is 40+ = -40% cores
This isn’t too illogical as i have never seen more than 20 members of a single faction online at a single time.
FDM 10 Members: 8 + (10x2) +1 = (29*0.8) = 23.2 Rounded off 23 cores Total on planet so far (23 cores)
KPA 44 Members: 8 + (44x2) + 1 = (97*0.6) = 58.2 Rounded off 58 cores Total on planet so far (81 cores)
U-P 33 Members 8 + (33x2) + 1 = (74*0.65) = 48.1 Rounded off 48 cores Total on planet so far (129 cores)
PKF 1 Member 8 + (1x2) + 1 = 11 cores Total on planet so far (140 cores)
NOD 11 Members 8 + (11x2) + 1 = (31*0.8) = 24.8 Rounded to 25 cores Total on planet so far (165 cores)
FST 35 Members 8 + (35x2) + 1 = (79*0.65) = 51.35 Rounded to 51 cores Total on planet so far (216 cores)
135 Members living on a planet and still 14 cores left before planet maxes out, seems to be pretty decent and all those factions will be able to hold their bases and provide each other tons of pvp.
Their should be some spare cores left for digging hv’s if people plan wisely, also for attacks people can keep tons of hv’s sv’s in their F2 factory and spawn new ones as theirs dies.
Let me know your thoughts and if you think its unfair for larger factions.
