I'm not sure why this would need changing. I recommend anyone having issues competing for oil visit IRC #warzone2100-games and try to find some one at their skill level to match up against or a pro willing to train them.
effigy, do you suggested to train people to use half-built derricks? i cannot understand it...
No, I mean victims of 1/2 builds should seek some advice as to why they are loosing due to this strategy. For example, if you're playing StartUp and you can only get the 4 oil inside your base, because your opponent already took the rest of the oil on the map- you probably waited too long to send out trucks.
half-build derricks is NOT core of game! "oil hunt" must be stopped! its just bug, and we all are bug users!
"Oil Hunt" ?? You mean searching for oil? If this were a bug I guess all maps should have all their oil resources divided evenly and placed in each base location?
I'm pretty sure sending out trucks as early as possible to scout/capture oil is an intentional game design.
People who was agreed to fix half-build derricks (by some way): JDW, Terminator , Shadow Wolf TJC , aubergine, Iluvalar, NoQ, ODDity, zany. Berg, Emdek
also by my opinion Iluvalar and NoQ is super-pro gamers and experts, their votes have higher value
= community agreed.
Removing or Reducing burn time doesn't count? :'-(
again, for me easiest solution is just set price of oil derrick
if player want to take enemy's oil with 1 truck, he should pay for it
A small price to pay for a derrick is another idea I'm curious about. I'm having trouble visualizing it's impact on gameplay.
I did think of another excuse to keep 1/2 builds, though: Theiving AI team mates
My complete opinion on allowing trucks to take over incomplete structures is: That's asinine. You're talking about giving them the Nexus Link turret (technology you don't get until very, very late game).
I really think we could just removed or proportion burn time to HP and have a nice compromise.
