Show number of turns used in attack logs

Post by Alex on Fri Apr 16, 2010 8:42 am

Now that there is the option to use a variable number of turns per attack (1-10) the number of turns should be shown in attack logs. Mainly for the ones that have been done against you (Thats why I am writing this) but also for the ones that you have done.

any particular reason why it would be important?

just from my veiw, it would be important from the defenders point of veiw as it can easily identify a probe attack, or explain why such a low amount was taken if successful.

just my thoughts.

I would agree with nomad, it would show if it was a probe attack or a full hit. Which would allow parties to see if they need to address the issue.

It's possible to calculate one's own AT used for attack strikes.

Find total AT used in the war XP page, and subtract 10 AT for every assault, invasion, etc found in the Strike logs that are not kuwal attacks.

I just happened to do this earlier today to find my average Kuwal yeild per AT used since not all my attacks are 10 AT strikes.

For incoming strikes it's not so easy to calculate. It would be handy to see in the logs which could be valuable info on judging what to do to prepare for future attacks from the same person.

Yeah I am/was in the following situation:

I was attacked twice in a short interval of time. Judging from amounts taken etc. I assume one of the hits was a 1-turn 'probe' strike to guage my defence. Knowing for sure how many ATs were used means I dont have to speculate.

Also I can't think of any reason not to have this shown...Are there any reasons?

For older accounts, wasn't the assults and stuff a higher AT value?

assaults went down in cost considering how you need to assault a lot more often than you needed before
