For those days you get a couple bad times, there is always a string of good ones. It works itself out in the wash.
That would be nice and game if not on daily basis. Says, once per 2-3 days.
Point is, that once you capture an outpost, you're involved into continuous SAP defence, which leave you almost no time for everything else unless you're a no-lifer. As an adult man, you have to spend 8 hours for sleep, 8 hours for work, 2 hours for a ride from work to home and back (it's all average), which leaves you up to 5 play hours total. SAPs are occur every 8-16 hours, that means you have 0% chance to successfully defend next SAP, and roughly about 31% to defend a SAP after that in your primetime. That's kinda...low.
Ofc you can say that you as an attacker have exactly the same 0% and 31%, but hey. Difference is, that there can be only one owner but multiple attackers, which means that for successfull defence I have to form up alliances covering as much TZ as possible, while attackers can go solo. That sounds like an unfair advantage of attackers. and makes defending harder than attacking which is, combining with risks and rewards of owning an outpost, makes the outpost ownership close to meanless.
Ah yessss, and ofc current mechanics meants that with about 50% probability I will be busy defending my outpost at the primetime (forming up fleet, moving, defending, and all the stuff), which leaves me close to nothing free time of my primetime, making me unable to do whatever else it's need to be done to maintain my corporation.
Have a productive day, runner!
R.I.P. Chenoa, you'll never be forgotten.
