Well done everyone

AND if you are there do please come on to the game before it boots you from squad automatically. If it does please feel free to rejoin.

Our squad war was on a knife edge but our last three base attacks saw us get to 41 and holding the three planets at end. If we had given up going for it we would have lost 38 V 39. So well done for coming on and going for it.

As always if you need to disappear do let us know. Blog is ideal way of letting us know when you will be back, or unavailable. Reason we created the blog. The chat lag can mean messages do not post for five minutes – and easily lost.

It also means for example I ended up with six speeders in sullust squad centre simply because it did not update in time for people wanting to give. We might need to coordinate donating so that does not happen. As ever, give players benefit of the doubt if you do not get what you want – it is a lag chat issue. 

It is a nice problem to have that people are so keen to donate, and with guard equipment using squad centre in attack more useful than ever. Also, with desert jets I suspect many of our bases may need sonics again to deal with, and snipers on squad centre to take out from a distance.

AND has been absent for 27 days, and the game will auto boot – I cannot stop that. Extrachewie decided to leave, though they had not been very active. I fear Ben might also auto lapse. 

Welcome back to WRD2 from his holiday. No idea if they will finally make themselves available for squad wars. All they have to do is comment on Fundin’s sign up posts to be considered. 

Soon we will be a max lv50 squad. A testament to your gaming and commitment to Rebel3Squad. The camaraderie and team spirit is what makes the squad what it is.  

Planets going

They have just taken Hoth and Tako. With five hours to go this is their last chance assuming not rushing with crystals.

Must take Tako back, and if not have Tako, Hoth.

They have 12 lv10 attacks. We have 13 bases needing 100%. So take these planets back and we have all but won.

Lv49 Squad and recruitment

We are one level away from maximising our squad level. That is a testament to you helping other players out with donations, and executing gameplans for squad wars which see us win nine times out of ten. Will mention what we need to do about squad wars with new members bit later in this post. 

With the new guard defence equipment, winning in the regular game got that much harder. Hopefully, with the right base design it might make holding resources easier with defence. The problem is by having conflicts on every planet, even if your base holds your resources can be drained from multiple attacks. Occasional players might see any gained loot, plus, taken in one big hit. 

As always, the need to evolve and redesign your base to see what works is important. Never do it to win the last battle. Design it so it will win majority of defences. Look at those of us with big defence wins for inspiration, and especially look at conflict lists for those whose defence stands out. 

I really do not care about your medal counts. Key is you can get the resources you need to upgrade your base and units. If you need troops in squad centre to attack, feel free to ask. Most of us have donation objectives or reputation points to accrue. If there is a huge difference in your donations and requests, not going to be held against you unless we see you are ignoring others requests for no good reason when playing and requesting yourself. 

Squad Wars

Squad wars are still lots of fun to play. Against a squad higher ranked than us we only just lost 42-43. I hope AND comes back, but in their absence we lack level 10 attacks. With three weak accounts making up the numbers we lose attacks and uplinks too easily. This costs us. 
So for new members that have joined (warm welcome to you!) please look out for Fundin’s post asking who is available for squad wars on here. He usually posts on a Friday. If you subscribe to blog via email, you will be notified when he has posted. If you need the password please ask in chat.

Officers, please encourage new members to check out this website and repeat the above to them. Right now we need to be only accepting members who are strong level 6 onwards who can help out with squad wars. If strong level 9/10 even better!

I do not believe we have the numbers for a mid week war, so will continue with just Fundin’s at the weekend, with attack phase starting around 6PM UK time Sunday. 

I kicked KP today because they keep going awol, only briefly on, and this time absent over 23 days. Will be keeping an eye out on others. If you are having a holiday or too busy for a week or two let me know! 

To boldly go where no one has gone before …

Well done everyone for showing a squad that where a lot tougher than us, that we could be as tough as them with the right planets. 
When I am waiting for droideka to repair or star command to fill up, I have started playing Star Trek Timelines. Completely different to this game, it is like an adventure story with various missions you do with Star Trek crew from all the various series there have ever been. Various skill sets and traits people have (e.g. Picard diplomacy, Spock Science) are used to make your missions successful. You upgrade crew as you go.

Give it a try, and if you like the game you can join the squad I have set up on there called imaginatively: USS-R3S

Unlike here there are time intervals when events happen so there is not a be on at this time factor.  You do not donate anything to each other. It is rather your progression during an event (which gives you many useful items and bonuses) which helps out the squad. So play at your own pace – it is very much a sit back and relax while waiting for Star War troops to train. 

Hope you enjoy; make it so!
