I wonder...

Strategy, feedback, or anything SUBTERFUGE-related

  • I was just thinking... what if there was a mining game with two players called A and B. Neither of these players ever gained or lost a single outpost, and they both drilled their first mine at the EXACT same time and their second mine at the EXACT same time. At the end of the game, they both had 1 factory, 2 generators, 2 mines and 200 NP. Who wins?
    Baa.

  • Original factories produce drillers at different times. Some are set early, some set late in the cycle. I think whichever players factory produced first would go on top, and then just never come down from first.

    What if you use two generators?

    For the record, I think that the player who places first at the start of the game (which seems very random) will win.

  • They can not possibly drill 2 mines at the same time, because they internet connection and their home's distance from the Subterfuge servers are both different. One of their mines will be drilled a couple seconds before the other mine.

  • The answer: i'd win.
    Because if there were two players as boring as this, I would attack them.

    I was thinking that until I remember you can schedule things to happen, in which case they'd both schedule to mine at exactly the same time.

    Subterfuge works in ticks of 10 minutes, so as far as the game is concerned 09:50 and 09:59 (e.g) are the exact same time.

  • No, that's not exactly right. It does work it ticks for the purposes of sub movement and combat, but it still realizes when something happens before another. Que up 2 subs 9 minutes apart and they'll launch at different times

    While the timers on initial factories are randomized, they are still exactly the same for every player.
