On acquiring sectors and doing tournaments.For once - as an exception to the rule! - I have started this thread containing posts that were off-topic in this thread 'Fairies Questions' - the OP there asked for a mod to clean the topic, since it became more and more a discussion on squad sizes in tournaments and provinces.
The discussion that started there, contained so many interesting posts however that I couldn't bring myself to delete them for being off-topic... so for once I decided to put these together in this new thread.
I hope you all agree on this and will find this an interesting read.
- Scouting costs are a function of Ring distance + the number of sectors you have acquired and those costs are reduced by 25% each time you acquire another Advanced Scouting technology.
- Your provincial opponents are determined by distance and relic type, and there's a random number seed in each of your sectors that will give you the same 8 encounter combinations no matter how long you avoid that sector. As a practical matter, you will not be able to fight where you've scouted unless you've unlocked all of the available Squad Size technologies.
- Your Tournament opponent are determined primarily by your Squad Size technology, but the more distant opponents are still tougher. Somebody who is in chapter III will have weaker tournament opponents than somebody in chapter VIII, even though they're doing the "same" tournament.
Edit: Zanyah - 2016-08-24 - I added the quote to make clear why the posts were moved.
