What are they ?
NPCs are Non-Player Characters that are controlled by the game's AI (Artificial Intelligence).
You can find them in the galaxy view, in every solar system.
Can I attack them ?
YES, that's why they're here, but beware, they won't make it easy for you, be sure to spy them before attacking.
I can't find them, why ?
Well, that's normal. NPCs aren't stationnary, they will not stay at the same place all the time and they can even disappear for a certain amount of time. Pay attention !
Can I attack them with a friend (grouped attack) ?
NO, do not forget to check the changelog :
MOD : Grouped attacks are not possible anymore on NPCs
How are their resources calculated ?
Their resources represent 5 to 10% of the amount needed to build their fleet. Some NPCs are, then, more profitable than others.
When I'll be well developed, will they become obsolete ?
NO, NPCs will always adapt to your strikeforce, becoming more or less stronger. It's up to you to find the good composition !
Can their defenses be destroyed by missiles ?
NO, you can only attack a NPC with spaceships!…do not forget to recycle afterwards !
I attacked, but they are gone, is it normal ?
YES it can happen, the getaway rate is around 1%.
Like a normal player, it can ghost its fleet, which can make you look some nitrogen…that's the risk !
How many times can I attack a NPC ?
The following rule applies : 5 + “standings place” (max= 100) attacks per day on NPCs ;
(Eg: top 1: 6 attacks, top 50: 55 attacks, top 150 : 100 attacks)
Does a NPC have a commander ?
NO, its fleet, resources and defenses will not be protected or guided by any commmander.
I forgot to recycle the debris field, can it disappear with the NPC ?
YES, like said before, NPCs arent's stationary, hence, when they disappear, ecerything disappears with them.
Can a NPC create a moon after a combat ?
NO, which guarantees you more resources (a part of the resources not being taken to form a moon).
How is the NPCs fleet determined ?
Their fleet is randomly composed on the basis of a player's fleet, from the top 100 (active or inactive).
Does a NPC have technologies ?
A NPC wil have the exact same level of technologies than yours : shield, weapons, armour, laser, ion, plasma, graviton.
A NPC will also have your hero bonuses : attack boost, shield boost, armour boost, speed boost and vigilance boost.
Do not forget to put those when you simulate the battle.
How is the debris field composed ?
The debris field represents 22% of the destroyed fleets and 1.66% of the destroyd defense.
