Perhaps a wishful question - my carrier will arrive at my star exactly 4 seconds after the enemy carrier will arrive. Yes, 4 SECONDS. Will I get to fight before he takes the star and gets the defender bonus?
Sounds like you are in a real time game.
Combat is determined per tick.
So you own the star. That means you are the defender with Weapons+1 defender’s bonus. All ships and carriers arriving that tick are gathered together for one combat.
So the 4 seconds difference just depends on whether the carriers arrive during the same tick ? or separately over adjacent ticks ?
Most likely there could be some kind of lag in your internet. Refresh your browser and see whether those 4 seconds go away.
Aha, I forgot about the tick counter. Thanks. Can you tell that I’m a noob?
