Seal ops steal a maximum of 3% of the lowest amount of tech you or your target has. So if you have 50k PDS tech and your target has 30k, you steal 3% of the lowest amount (PDS) = 900 discoveries. If YOU have 30k and your target has 50k, you still only steal 900.
This works per category! So if you have 100k PDS tech and nothing else, and your target has 100k of all other techs but no PDS tech, you steal nothing. And ofcourse you cant steal CS tech.

Bomb hangers has the same effect. You only destroy 3% of the lowest amount of fighters/bombers (that are at home ofcourse, if your, or your enemy's army is on a PS, you dont destroy anything).

Havent tried the other sealops yet, but i expect about the same results...

Interesting Stuff - VERY helpful.


N = -20*ln(1000/P)+20

N is the number of dogfight attacks needed to kill a country of population P. You lose
1/20th of your pop per hit until you got 1000 civs.

Well here it goes. I give some credit to Weege who intruduced the idea to me a long time ago and helped clear up the difference between the bank and investments. Investments are time consuming to use but can be very beneficial. Your chances of winning will be increased if you use them. What most people don't see is how to use them. First off, let me explain what they are for. The bank is different from investments. The bank goes by turns taken while investments are by turns received. So if you had investments getting money each turn, then take it out the next day, and put it in the bank. You're getting both interests on a single turn. Most people play mostly everyday, especially at the beginning when the ranks are like a seesaw. It is a must if you want to place high or win. Also, if you just set the investments for 100 turns, lock your money in, and wait till it's expired, you would have to change to playing every other day which is not as good as playing everyday with no interest. BUT, imagine if there was a way to be able to set the investments to 58-60 turns, put your money in there after you're done that day's turns, and the next day, take it out, put it in the bank, and repeat. Wouldn't that be nice? Well there is a way. You have 10 slots, each with a limit of 2 billion (including the interest you get). To most this seems excess but there's a couple reasons for this. The first is that in the beginning, although you won't need them all, you'll end up using them. Also, near the end, you could potentially stock pile enough cash to fill all the slots. If you do the latter, you'll probably end up with several billions dollars of cash left at the end with nothing to buy.

Set slot one to 110 turns from day 1. If you're playing at the same time, this will be a lot easier. Set slot two to 165, slot 3 to 220, and slot 4 to 275, etc. 5 to 330, 6 to 385, etc. You should have slot 8 as 495. Leave the end 2 and don't do anything with them. DON'T PUT ANY MONEY IN ANY OF THE SLOTS YET! The next day, the slots would be as follows: 55, 110, 165, etc. Run your turns and at the end, put all the leftover cash into slot one. Set slot 9 to 495. The next day, take the money out of slot 1, run your turns, put the money in slot 2. Set slot 1 to 495, and repeat. If you don't play at the same time, you'll have to do something a little more time consuming but it is more accurate. Set the slots as 100, 110, 120, 130, etc. The next day, predict when you'll next play and put the money in the appropriate slot. When a slot runs to 0, set it back accordingly, usually 100 or 110.

**Never sacrifice the need for more defenses for more cash in the investments. If you look like a potential target, just spend your money of computer tech or defense. That should always be your first priority.**

This should help you in investments. It take a little to get used to some start now and get as much practice as you can. Good luck.

Ok guys..this is gonna be one of the most important tips i'm gonna give u...the key to succesfull grabbing! If u want to finish high..u will need to have a lot of land...and the best way to get it is too take it from others...

One of my expertises is grabbing a !@$# of a lot and being ungrabbable myself. In my "good"resets (I had 5 or 6 top 5 finishes, two wins...but I think I've been #1 with a huge land/ NW lead about 5 times without finishing the reset very high..(cause of wars, suiciders playing style kinda provokes agression,..) I was almost never (2 or 3 exceptions in my entire career) succesfully grabbed and I rarely ever failed a grab myself 9only when I was very drunk..).

The key to succesfull grabbing:

1) Target selection

Ofcourse it's always cooler to grab the big people...but if u want to play it safe (grabbing two small guys succesfully is better IMO than grabbing one big guy succesfully and failing once...or getting sucessfully retalled on) always look at the landscores and just take the fatties with lower NW than u have.

Look at the scores; it's best grabbing guys with high scores since they will be mostly offence and have little defense. Or people with high scores are sealers...good grabbing as well.

U can also check the archives; guys who grab a lot are offensive, thus usually have bad defense, often don't have their disco's maxed (cause they're to greedy with the land) and don't have 100% morale.

Don't try to be brave...always take the big land guys with the lowest u are sure u won't fail.

Try to spread ur grabs over the different teams though...

2) More important: ur country

Always be sure to max mil strenght in ur profile and max comp u an amazing edge on most guys. ALWAYS HAVE 100% MORALE. Bombers are definately the most awesome attack weapons in the game. If u think bombers are best for FUBARring in fight; THINK AGAIN. Bombers are the best grabbing weapons there are, nothing can stand them. So !@$# marines...just go panzers and bombers. Have enough fighters to be sure ur bombers come through and have just enough panzers so they take all the air support with them....than u will have a unique fighting force.

3) Playing style...government.

When ur grabbing and have like 50 turns. Set prod at 50% bombers, 30% panzers and 20% fighters. Assign some unassigned territories u have left or work overtime for about 5 times. Grab an easy guy, assign the buildings. By now u've played about 10 turns and ur offense is pretty strong. Grab, build, grab (big), build etc for 20 turns. Than it's time to make sure that ur are not grabbed back.

So set prod to 60% HL and 40% fighters....and grab some more (easy) targets. Than assign some buildings if u have the turns and money.

Finally: sell some panzers, bombers and fighters.....try to keep the HL intact. That way u will have very strong defense.

ALTERNATIVE: u save like 60-80 turns..go 30% panzers, 50% bombers, 20% fighters...grab for 40 turns or so...increasing bigger guys..and than stop and just work overtime the last 20 turns or so making 100% HL or 80 % HL and 20% fighters...

Conclusion: It's all about bombers and HL people....those are the greatest units in Teq...

Look at the scores; it's best grabbing guys with high scores since they will be mostly offence and have little defense. Or people with high scores are sealers...good grabbing as well.

To be perfectly clear..I meant the pointscores ofcourse....;)

***** DaFlunk

BTW Sjon, it's not always good to grab people with high scores!!!
most of the time I have a great score( barracker strat)
I'm able to break everyone and since my defence is even better then my offence I have also a better defence then the guys i can grab!!

Barrackers have an Enourmous Offence/Defence copmpared to their NW,
but they are weak for suiciders

***** Sjonnie

barrackers have great offense due to ground attacks they don't have to get past my fighters...

But my bombers usually kick their marine ass...

With endjump I mean buying out the private market on your last turn of the reset with a maximum discount, thereby gaining lots of networth at the lowest cost possible, and finishing high.

How to get a maximum discount:
1. set profile for private market to 80%
2. Maximise pvt market discount with tech (40%)

Number one is easy, you just need 1 profile change for this. Number 2 can become expensive but realy is worth it. Again, there are 2 ways to maximise the discovery pvt market discount.
1. Get pvt market discount until it is maxed at 40%
2. Unassign and drop land until it is maxed at 40%

For techers and sealers nr.1 is very easy to do and should be done. For other strats nr 1 can get very expensive if you have a lot of land. However, dropping land isnÂ’t cheap either and land is worth points for the total team score at the end.

Calculation example:
Country 10k land
1. Keep land: Pvt market discount needed: 435k @ 11k ~ 5 b sv
2. drop land to 1k => costs 1b sv 44k @11k ~ 0.5 b sv => total 1.5 b sv. Difference between buying discos vs dropping land: 3.5 b sv in favor of dropping for INDIVIDUAL score only.
3. (for experts only) drop land to 1k, buy out pvt market, buy back 9k land => 1.5 b sv + 2 b sv for land => total 3.5 b sv

How much does my private market cost?

Unit cost at maximum discount:
Marines 63
Fighters 253
Bombers 348
Panzers 380
Heavy lasers 127

For every 100 land your market will become 185k sv more expensive each turn you play. Your private market contains can only contain 3x the amount of units you have in total. Make sure it never reaches this limit by buying more units. With these numbers you can calculate how much money you need, to buy out your entire pvt market at the end of the reset. Or you can use my pvt market calculator (copy /paste).

Start saving the money for it and use investements for more profit. (be carefull not to exceed the end of the reset with it.) Keep in mind you also need money to buy pvt market discoveries and at the last day they will become very expensive.

I haven't played for a while. Are their some new values or formulas? Like private market max is now 190 for marines?

Basically, marines were first reduced in attack power from 1/1 to 0.8/0.8. Then they were made 3 times stronger but were produced 3 times less (and costed 3 times more). That's why the private market minimum price is now 190 for marines.
