Spying Planets

Post by Ancient_one » Sat Aug 07, 2010 11:05 am

I am planet hunting right now, and it is just annoying to spy people with way lower covert over 20 times just to see what the planet is and then another 20 times to see its defense on it. I think it would be a great idea to make it easier to see someone's planets, especially if your covert is bigger then theirs...

Perhaps an option could be added?
Get all intel of the planets of a player at once, but use 300 turns to do so?

I was just stating a middle way.
I did not bother to think upon it.
I just thought to put in my opinion, as the thread was not closed.

EDIT: Im being told that the big update removed the spying cost for covert turns.. im not sure if its true or not.. i'd test it but im midway through a PPT, it still removes my covert turns when i spy on beta and to my knowledge it did on main as well back while i was farming a few weeks ago.. im not sure if its a bug or a glitch or something....guess i'll have to check into it further.

Crosis spying doesn't remove covert capacity any more. At least not on main.

I can see The Ancient's point though - spying someone with 2b covert with 2t and it still takes forever to get the planet stats.

What might be a more viable option could be a 'collate' button or a memory on the spies, so that if in the last 5 mins you spied someone they remember what the planet stats they got where so that each report you get more and more details until the job is done.

If they're gonna make spying so hard, they logs should at least accumulate information...
