      • Added per cycle bonus credits for Powerplay
      • Added per transaction bonus credits for Powerplay
      • Award credits when completing powerplay actions
      • Award bonus payments to players pledged to powers at the end of a cycle

      The server needs to be updated first.  I’ve just got home (2.30am my time) and it says it’s down for up to 6 hours.  But I don’t know how long it’s been down for already.

      Aye Aye Captain!

      The server went down midnight Adelaide time, almost on the dot, so that’s almost four hours ago for reference.

      At the moment there is a new launcher to download but that is all. I’m assuming the client wont be available to download until the servers are fully updated. So the question is, do I pull an all-nighter waiting or set my alarm… 😉

      [edit] Forgot to mention. For any redditors, a gentleman named “Sly” posted on our official forum thread regarding a Patreus specific subreddit (http://www.reddit.com/r/ElitePatreus) Could be useful for getting in touch and coordinating with allies. Zero opsec obviously though.

      [edit #2] Update is live as at 4am Adelaide time. I’m off to bed while this downloads.

        Awww snap.  Forgot about that in my rush.

        Still, the base Cobra I had stored in Ixblahblah freed up about the same amount of credits anyway.

        About 6Million later, it’s an A rated courier with a 17LY jump.

        Initial testing shows it’s fun.  Not as hard hitting as the Vulture in my current configuration, but harder to hit.  Feels like I’ll use it as a chaser.

        And the soundtrack.  Get a choir of Angels singing battle cries & you’re getting there.

        Actually, noticed that the soundscape overall was improved – the Vulture engine has some new sounds I hadn’t noticed earlier.

      By the way, the maintenance cost (Ship integrity repair)  got jacked up real good in 1.3. It could be FD try to raise the repair cost, but screwed up somehow.

      Unless you are filthy rich, you might want to fly a little cheaper ship (8% integrity repair on Python cost 2 mil lol).

      The courier is available in Nelder and upgrade-able to A rated in Ixbakald.

      I’m just doing mine now and its cost me approx 6million. Should really sell my Vulture now as i think the courier is now my new small fighter.!

        That sounds like a squadron worthy of the AI.
        I hit a high intensity res today, 4 wanted Pythons in a row…wow, easy cash 🙂

        I’m happy about the increase in repair costs, but they went a little far.

      As it stands, Wangal is absolute priority, it is a take at all costs system.  If we can take this, then we must also fortify it.  If we can sneak in a couple of runs to assist Parsi we will but if we have people running for Patreus I’d like it to be Wangal..  Do we have a screenshot of Wangal at the moment?  I’m at work and can’t access anything.

      As I read it, (after I had done a few runs, costing me $2m) we are WAY overstocked at Wangal. Granted, I am new at this.

      Overstocked is fine, we need to stay in the top 10 ideally the top 3 or so so we become expansion next week.

      I have updated the main sticky for powerplay.

      Its also important those who like pew pew go shoot up ships in Wong Guin as this system links us to Patreus space.

        Already had a go at taking Wong Guin.

        3 of us headed there and got a good few kills.

         

        Vouchers are bugged for this system though. Can’t hand them in.  Report sent to FD.

        Maybe a couple of other guys could give it a quick go and see if it is just those who got in early who are bugged.

         

        Wangal is 2nd place still.  Won’t hurt to keep adding a few vouchers to it though.

         

        Been fortifying Parsi and Aftero.   Hopefully when bugged is fixed I’ll hit Wong Guin and bring some more vouchers to Wangal, just to make sure.

        We will need to help Fortify.  If systems are undermined this week, then we may not have enough CC points to expand to Wangal next week even if we are number 1.

      Also the other reason for keeping us top 3 is that we need to be higher than all the other powers in the region or they will force us out, thankfully Duval is prepping about 30 Ly away so we are currently safe however it doesn’t look good when they come our way.

      They are miles out in front, they have already fortified every system they have to +300% and all the expansion attempts are at high % too. She appears to have massive CMDR backing compared to Patreus.

      So what’s the strategy for preparing Wangal for expansion? Are we waiting until later in the week to see where the other systems stand and then making a mad dash if we slip too far behind? Because we already seem to be in danger of getting knocked out.

      I’ve already put several million of my own funds into preparing it (enough to make up a significant percentage of the overall amount) and I’m not an especially rich player. I suppose there’s a balance to be struck on the one hand to ensure Wangal is successfully prepared, and on the other avoiding a contest/race of over-preparing the popular systems players have chosen if we push too hard?

      Powerplay is intense, I’m loving the whole new dynamic its brought to the game. A lot to learn as well.

      [edit] Basically, I know its only been live for barely a day, but it doesn’t seem to me that we’re serious about securing Wangal at the moment.

      I’ve been having the same thoughts and just came on here to say the same thing, but you beat me to it … I’ve just spent the last 2 days running rares to get a couple of million spare to put into the preparation of Wangal, but I don’t want to lose the money if we are not all serious about doing this.

      It’s looks like Wangal is secured for preparation for the time being, (sitting at 8,240 with the third prepped system at 5,751). However its still early in the cycle (assuming cycle ends Friday night/Saturday morning AU time) so we should watch it closely for any bursts of activity. I’m going out on a limb and calling our place in the top three as safe, which is all we need.

      Looks like we are still holding strong. And people seem to be getting the message with Wong Guin, it’s now down to 7th place with very little change.
