Spy Rules

Postby Support Team » Thu Nov 21, 2013 12:03 am

The spy result depends on the level of Espionage Tech and the number of spy probes. If a player has higher level of Espionage Tech and the larger number of spy probes, he will get a more detailed spy report from the system. But there's a side-effect, his spy probes will be founded more easily due to the large amount of spy probes. One more spy probes, one more percentage of chance the spy probes will be founded. But the percentage will not over 50 percent. If a player use superior spy, he can enforce to spy once. But if the target player used Security alert, he won't be spied at that time. Even though the attack used a superior spy. That's all for your reference.

Good to know but more detail would be appreciated. For example:
How many probes do I need to see all detail for ESP tech # levels below me, equal or me, and # levels above me. And how Many to only see ships and def....

The details of the investigation content depends on both of the two sides level difference of detection technology.

The larger the gap between the two sides level difference of detection technology, the more clear intelligence.
There is no fixed data

No.... Fixed.... Data..... I don't believe that is possible. Unless by no fixed data you mean that rates of detection and what info is gathered is random but is somewhat affected by esp level... This is still data id like to see... If you don't mind of course..

From observations, If you are the same level of Espy as your target, it takes 7 probes to gather all information. Each level of Espy difference, add or subtract 2 probes to gather all the data (i.e. if your Espy is 10 and your target is lvl 8 or lower, at most it will take 3 probes to gather all information). While there may not be a set amount needed for each increment of data (it may be that at same Espy lvl, 4 probes is the minimum to gather resource info, with each probe added unlocks the ships, defenses, and techs), it is possible to determine the maximum number of probes needed, once you know your targets Espy lvl.

My rule of thumb is I only send 3 probes at most. If I cannot gather all the information with those three probes it means it is time to upgrade my Espionage tech.

Hope this helps!

Can someone give a break down of what is detected, in what order. does ships get detected before defense as spying escalates.

The order follows the way it is listed on the Spy Report:

Resources
Ships
Defenses
Buildings
Techs
