1. To discover new and interesting things that have not been discovered before. In reality, people go on expeditions to gain various things, like resources, ships, or dark matter.

2. Expedition duration is in part dependent on drive research levels, astrophysics level and the amount of deut you have. What ships you have in the fleet also play a role. My cargoes can go for 11 hours, but my destroyers can only go for 5. It varies, but the time increases as you improve.

3. A longer expedition is more likely to turn up something than a shorter one. It also increases the chance of getting something really good.

4. Uses lots of fuel to go on longer expeditions. And while you are more likely to find something, it also means you are more likely to find bad stuff, pirates, aliens, lost fleet, or other.


Expeditions can be well worth it. I believe the best you can get is about 4 million resources or a large combat fleet. The fleets you can get are based on how many and what types of ships you send on the expedition. But there is a chance you can lose the entire expedition fleet as well.

Here is a link to a expedition calculator: http://www.ogamecentral.com/tools/expedition.html
It will tell you the likelihood of getting stuff and how much.

I have 3 slots for expediations, sometimes i use expediations to fs my war ships, i slow down time to get there & about 2hrs in place & i throw in a coulpe lc's, they might come empty & some times with 100k or more of res or some ships, but often with cute pets, thats why i started a pet shop. Smile

I think the most res i got was about 500k/700k & couple of times & other times load of diff. ships at times when i have have a few slots open before going to bed & signing off i send 4/5 lc's from lower diff planets (not mains) just for the heck of it. I think an important part is to send probes with them. I seem to get more with the amount of probes i send.

Some say yes, others say no. The idea for the yes people is that you some times cross battlefields or asteroids and a recyclers is used to extract ships or resources. The no people say that the rest of the fleet is smart enough to figure it out.

I've never seen a difference with or without them.

When you are selecting the fleet's destination, there are three icons over the galaxy, system, planet number. Left most is for planets, middle is for moons, and right most is for debris fields. Both planets and moons can be defended and you may lose things sent there. However, debris fields are non-combat zones. Not matter who or what goes there, NO combat can occur. Since recyclers go to debris fields and not moons or planets, they are safe from harm.

A common fleetsave strategy is to send fleets to debris fields. Since no combat can occur, the fleet remains safe. This is especially important when you see an attack incoming. You time your fleet to reach the debris field around your planet seconds after the enemy lands. This way, your fleet and resources remain safe. If you have recyclers in your fleet, you can also harvest any destroyed ships or satellites before the enemy does.

Expeditions

Post  Ornree on Mon Jul 18, 2011 3:06 am

I like using a combination of 67 HF, 37 LC, 1 esp, 1 Destroyer my first two expeditions I was attacked by aliens and lost a few ships but you can hit streaks where you gain alot of resources.

You should have read up before applying.

The council meets in the forums in restricted areas. We discuss issues and vote on a course of action. Then we tell the rest of the alliance via forum posts and circular messages.

I do not think we have any diplomats that are not in vacation mode.

The diplomat will talk with friends and foes. Based on the council's choice, you maybe required to start a war, or bring one to an end. If we don't want a war, try to talk the enemy out of it. If we want to ally with another alliance or players, the diplomat conveys the desire to them. In short, you are the go-to guy for all things relating to inter-alliance activity.
