How much PP is required for a VP push?
« on: Sep 06, 2019, 03:56 PM »
I have been banking my PP and am up over 300 at the moment.  I try to do full map clears NON boosted with RZCM + Sparky mainly.  I am waiting for the shard converter update because I have enough shards for 259 pp in those silly blue statues.  I have been watching some of DAMO videos because he is currently VP pushing but man it seems like quite a grind and you have to dedicate a ton of time.

Thanks for your input on this.........My main question i'm asking is the amount of PP recommended for a VP push....

It depends what level VP you are desiring to push too?
Many skilled players can get to 1300, 1400, even 1500 with all offense and not boosting. I believe the consensus is that is pretty much a hard limit without dropping ice.
Beyond that, the leaderboards are currently mostly blocked off by the cheaters, so not much point trying for global.

The strategy often advocated is to switch to 3 offense and 7 PSC during your buildup phase.
This helps you to stock up PP, as well as get in the practice of clearing your map with limited offense. Then when you are ready to drop the ice, you already know the tactics needed.

Approximately 500 per month.
7 ice * 3 = 21pp
3 offence * 2 = 6pp
Less 6-8 gained per day
20 used per day
600 per month
Less
70 from crab
Net 530pp per month

Of course it depends on how much you want to push, as you say time is a big factor but the above calculation is only for 2 offense boosts per day.
I haven’t started pushing yet and I have over 3000pp and about 13000 shards at 1400vp. I didn’t start trying to save pp until I was near max level (I was about 600vp, maybe less) where I deployed 1 psc with the rest offense but it is recommended to deploy more psc than that until you are ready to push which I would say is 1300.

Wow....so I am nowhere NEAR the recommended amount then!  I am currently around 1150 VP with 1 PSC (70%) 4 GBE 1 TH 4 TD.....

I will just keep collecting.....maybe won't even do a VP push.....Just wanting some different viewpoints on the matter.....

It would take more than skill for me to reach 1300 VP. It would take time which is in short supply right now. I'd have to be a pimpled faced teenager or a retired person to get that high.

Don’t worry, just play the game as you enjoy it. I didn’t have much pp for a long time and with Warships and crab you can quickly build up powder. Blocking is still a thing once you start getting global leaderboard opponents which I have not reached so there is still a ways to go before you have to consider a leaderboard push.

I would suggest to you getting more psc and not routinely boosting. Time is a big thing, I usually check every 20 mins or so for a spawn and keep my map clear but I can’t say How effective not doing that would be. If I have other commitments then they get priority so sometimes I can go hours without checking. Whatever works for your enjoyment.

I can say how effective not doing that would be. I'm an all-offense player and have been idling around 900 VP for over a year. I only have time to clear my map in the evening. There is no time before work. I can't during the day including my lunch hour. For me to improve my VP would require more playing which is time I don't have.

I hear ya.....My main playing time is in the evenings and before I head to work.....Life takes priority and I recently was told by my wife that she wished I would play the game less.  We have an 8 month old boy at home and he is getting to be a time sucker as well.  He is GREAT don't get me wrong here....

I just am at a stage in my life where other things are becoming more important....I still enjoy playing BB I'm just not playing it as often....

As my son gets older and becomes more mobile he is going to want my attention more and that will take priority over a game....Anyways.....

I have met a number of cool people in the game and enjoy watching the youtube streams to see how I can improve on my attacks and strategies....

I have the resources to do a push easily myself but I am going to a complete statue conversion from all offensive to all defensive.

I am not active enough to do an all-offensive push and am just waiting on a perfect BH MP.

It will be sad to see all my perfect offensive statues be removed but I figure that is my last goal and will then probably leave the TF and just do a VP push to see how far I can get and then let the tumble weeds roll across the beach.


I don't foresee anything else going into this application other that Warshits updates primarily.

All defense or 7 ice with the 3 offense masterpieces?

I think the next update will be interesting as it could be RickC’s last if rush wars looks like being successful. He seems the type of guy to really push to make good on his promises to improve things for non warship players. After RickC then who knows what the focus will be.

Any word on when Rush Wars will be available in the US?

Why is that Fritz?  Not worth it in your book?
