    General How about an additional way to undermine fortified systems in Powerplay?

    Presently, the only way to undermine fortified systems in powerplay is pirate (or destroy) enemy faction transports and unless there is a massive effort, this can be quite difficult to do. It's one of the reasons this sub-game feels as static as it does. However, I'd like to propose an...

    Powerplay Faction: Zemina Torval Cycle 315: FUC's Advance Stumbles

    FUC's advance towards AD took a step backward after Imperial forces undermined Winters and succeeded in cancelling her Weapons against the Princess. Meanwhile Hudson’s bluster against Torval turned out to be just that with our Fortifications holding out against their attack which quickly turned...

    Power Reward for Mahon Should Match Ethos: Better Cargo Bays

    So Edmund Mahon is a trader-focused Power, pushing expansionism through commerce, commerce, commerce. Literally, in fact: Preparation method: Finance. Expansion method: Finance. Control method: Finance. But his power reward is a dinky little thermal laser, the Retributor. It's not really worth...

    Powerplay Faction: Zemina Torval Cycle 310: Winters On Manoeuvres

    FUC have deployed a Weaponised Expansion against us at Albicevci this cycle, may the IHC’s commanders show them the error of their ways. Meanwhile our treasury ended the cycle up at 765 CC with our Defence Bonus maintained at 50%. Many thanks to all those who assisted. Since our last cycle...

    Powerplay How is Powerplay not open only yet?

    It's clearly a PvP game mode where players choose a side and fight for terretory. So why is it allowed in solo, where you can't defend against someone undermining your system, or can't attack your enemies fortification attemtps. It would be a lot more interesting and fair if it was open only...

    Powerplay in Solo

    Powerplay should be an Open only activity. Influencing Powerplay by fortifying systems or even opposing systems in solo is something that shouldn't be possible, no one can stop you! Powerplay is meant to be a struggle between factions/powers working against one another. Groups of players...

    Powerplay Faction: Zemina Torval Cycle 298: Wordsmithing on the Wreckage of Winters

    I wandered lonely as a comet That flies on by planets and stars, When all at once I saw a smouldering pyre, A host of molten Federal flags; Beside the port, beneath the Coriolis, Whimpering and whaling in a breeze. Continuous as the stars that shine and twinkle on the Milky Way, They stretched...

    Powerplay Faction: Zemina Torval Cycle 297: Winters Burns Themselves Down

    Having repeatedly failed to counter Imperial strategists Winters has decided to burn themselves to the ground and start again. We absolutely approve of this strategy and encourage Hudson to do it also as soon as possible. Unfortunately though we know what a bunch of miserable folks the Feds are...

    Another strong cycle despite everyone partying due to Empire Day and yes, I am aware some of the toilets in Lagerkvist’s foyer are still blocked however someone has bought us out of Mining Lances so we don’t have anything powerful enough to clear the blockage right now. We tried using slaves but...

    Exploration missons

    "I see you're heading out into the black - can you help us CMDR?" One thing that's missing (passenger and Colonia courier missions aside) from the smorgasbord of BGS mission types, is exploration. I'd like to see missions giving relatively high rewards (increasing with distance to objective)...

    Powerplay Faction: Zemina Torval Cycle 291: FUC Strategists Getting Coal From Santa

    FUC’s heavy assault on us last cycle fizzled out to a whimper as our fortifiers rallied and closed off their avenue of attack. Thus, we were able to consolidate to a CC Reserve of 209 CC with a Defence Bonus of 18%. This cycle they have deployed a Weaponised Expansion against us again at LTT...

    Powerplay Faction: Zemina Torval Cycle 287: FUC Assaults but Defences Hold

    Despite the gallant efforts of the IHC commanders FUC were successful in deploying their weapon at Tsohock against Xuanduna. The rallying call of Torvalians could not be silenced however and we achieved a CC Reserve of 101 and a Defence Bonus of 8%. At home two Torvalians were promoted to Optio...

    Powerplay Faction: Zemina Torval Cycle 281: Operation Safeguard saves Barathaona & CD-27 5409

    Thanks to the herculean effort of Torvalians against the massed forces of FUC and bugs the Federation was unable to force us to lose two of our most important weapons at Barathaona & CD-27 5409 and we exited Turmoil with a CC Reserve of 84 CC and a starting Balance of 64 CC. Huge appreciation...

    Powerplay Faction: Zemina Torval Cycle 273: 5C Actions

    FUC’s supporters again resorted to underhand tactics, since they can’t win any other way, and attempted to push 5C Expansions onto the Imperial Powers. Patreus failed to contain the threat and currently has a self-damaging sphere active in Expansion whilst here at Torval the Senator will have...

    Greetings CMDRs, We in the Powerplay community want to try again to push for change. We are fed up with how Frontier have been ignoring us and punishing us for playing Powerplay - yes, that is how the majority of us feel - that we are being punished for trying to play what was supposed to be...

    Powerplay Faction: Zemina Torval Cycle 269: Feds Routed in Clayahu

    FUC faced more humiliation last cycle as our fortification push forced them to halt their attack on the Torval domain whilst their forces at the Clayahu weaponised expansion suffered defeat at the hands of the IHC’s magnificent commanders. They have thus decided to go for double the failure this...

    Last cycle’s plan worked well and thanks to the efforts of Torval, IHC & FUC commanders we manged to scrap Amitae returning 83 CC to the Senator’s treasury and exiting turmoil with a CC Reserve of 54 CC. That said, Imperial Intelligence is pretty sure the Feds didn’t think they were helping us...

    FUC began a major offensive against Senator Torval’s domain last cycle with attacks against most of our systems. Our lines however held with only Amitae, CD-27 5409, Hesa, LHS 274, and Ross 429 taking casualties. Observers on the scene reported many wounded but no fatalities due in no short...

    FUC have deployed another Weaponised Expansion against us this time at Kistha.

Despite this Kappa remains profitable with many millions of...

    FUC has deployed two Weaponised Expansions against Senator Torval at Belgitan and Taexalk. If Taexalk successfully expands it would cause significant damage to CC revenues from Kappa as the people of 9 systems currently living under the light of Torval’s economic freedom will fall under the...

    FUC attacked 3 systems last cycle, being rebuffed at Kappa and failing at Tai-1 Hydrae.

    Lack of a meaningful endgame even with FC

    FC are not good endgame, how can they be? You buy one and then.... you can move groups of ships. Cool? Yes. Useful? Sure. But how does that constitute endgame? Well let’s define it. End game is where a player has reached the highest level and is transitioning from the basic day-to-day...

    Powerplay Faction: Zemina Torval Cycle 248: Scrap Success

    Our scrap proceeded relatively well but unfortunately our CC returns were hampered by fortification from FUC-Kumo supporting 5C meaning we kept hold of Trante. They also continued to use Grom to attack Imperial Powers whilst the Federal alliance itself pushed Patreus into Turmoil. However...

If it could be filtered to systems, 5c people would be exposed even from solo. Bots would have a hard...

    In light for the rise of Nova Imperium and the failure of the purge, I thought that perhaps it could be fun to consider that such a grouping would display recruiting efforts as it needs pilots to fill the ranks after the Battle of Paresa. To that extend, I have drafted this simple image. I have...
