Is it still worth it to have a base that just farms resources?

If you never have trouble spending all your command points and you have the $ and RP to get it, I don't see why not.

Doesn't it take ages to level them up. I just got one this week on server 2. I haven't got any army whatsoever not even a comm center. But now I'm at the double digit levels it takes ages to get enough anything to upgrade anything to the next level post-13661-1143531603.gif

Depends on what you mean by leveling them up. Leveling up the entire base? No reason to do so. Leveling up the stuff that matters?

Happens pretty quickly and even more quickly as you get to base 3, base 4, etc. My second base in server 2 is the same level as my 1st base. My 3rd base, which is a total farm base, is way behind......but the resource production stuff is almost to the level of my con yard which is at 18 currently.

I've only been leveling up the stuff the matters (PPs, harvs and refineries) although I've also been upping my defenses as well. Might leave them for now, I just wanted to make sure my base wasn't left completely undefended.

It also depends on how many bases you already have. Second base comes almost without initial resources, 3rd base has some, 4rd base has much more and so on. 7th base had 144m tib, 124 crystal and 68m power as its starting resources. drol.gif

I wonder if anybody has bases with primarily Collectors and Silos in them. No defense no offense. Pure farming bases...

I've seen a couple of bases like that on server 2. A couple of the good borg has fun alliance members had them.

Bit stupid having no defense imho. It leaves them completely open to destruction to anyone who gets within range. Which I duly did to the borg ones I came across tongue.gif

That's the point. Rather losing a few 100k's now and then than building defenses for a couple of M's...

Fair point. I guess you'd just need to make sure and not hold too much resources in those bases.

My alliance keeps a strong formation with all strong bases at the front. My Lvl 13 base (2nd base) is in the middle without any defense pretty much untouched. No problems so far, only positive things.

With these new POIs still think having a farming base with little or no defense is a good idea. As you have to hold territory around these points, your bases need to be spread out more leaving them more open to attack.

With these insane alliances bonuses, it's worth to have as many bases as you can get. biggrin.gif

I meant, is it better to make those bases with full defenses and full armies. Now that holding POIs is important each base essentially has to be able to fend for itself.

That is a very accurate way to describe our alliance bonuses in server 1. They are truly insane they can't leave it like that can they?

If you are trying to hold a POI you better have a good defense to discourage people from taking it from you. Most people don't realize how huge those bonuses are. When they do the battle to hold those things will truly be on.

As for a full army that depends on the circumstances.....but mostly I would say yes. I've drifted back to armies of some sort in all of my bases especially in server 1. If for no other reason than to invest the insane alliance bonuses that are rolling in and to grab local crates.

Yeah, if you're leaving one base behind, it should definitely be able to defend itself.

I really hope that they fix this, but in the mean time, let's try to get maximum benefit. biggrin.gif
