I like everything else on the Stats page, except for the bit about "1064 years" and then comparing it to Rome. Like, either you're comparing the 7 years your game has been in development to the 1064 years Rome existed, or you'll compare the amount of years players have spent playing to the number of years Romans have spent in Rome.

Idk, maybe it's a weird thing to nitpick about, but it's 3 AM and I aint planning on going to bed, so you'll be hearing me shouting to the clouds plenty today!

There are lies, and there are damned lies... and then there are statistics.
So, would false statistics then be more truthful than normal statistics?

Wait... did you just ask "Can a false lie be more truthful than a normal lie?" Yeah it could be, but only statistically... That's a deep question though, I'm still trying to think of which 1004 years Rome was an Empire during.

I don't know... depends on how you manipulate the data, not sure there is a false statistic unless you have absolutely no data, The answer to all questions is #42... so if you don't know just divide by 42.
...or a bunch of false and manipulated data.

Cough. We actually do something like that in AI development. It's a little more complex than using a constant value, but not appreciably more difficult.
So, yeah, same general effect. Imagine that, the world's most complex AI's are based on layers of "educated" guesses. We use averages a lot because they are unlikely to dramatically impact the existing data, but they do have a statistically significant impact. CIG is not immune to the same laws that impact other AI's, and CIG is not a thought leader in the field.

Wow really surprised at how many kills the Arrow has! Was it a free fly ship or something? First "real fighter" people buy with aUEC?

Very pleasantly surprised at how popular the Cutlass is- one of my favorite ships and I think hits the sweet spot in size and crew for day to day gameplay 😎☠
