Vega Conflict: Advice for beginners

  • Don’t worry too much about your base in the early stages – low-level bases heal quickly and for free.
  • Take advantage of the early free ships and the $1.99 and $4.99 offers – they will never come again.
  • When laying out your base, separate out your modules as much as possible, particularly high-collateral-damage items such as the Bridge and Combat modules.
  • Always be building, upgrading and researching.
  • Try not to leave labs unused overnight.
  • Build big ships overnight.
  • Build more ships than you need. Reserves are useful when the going gets hot and heavy.
  • Shields are generally more important than hull.
  • Tougher hull plating takes longer to repair.
  • Assemble a cargo fleet; start with a few spare gens with cargo hold upgrades.
  • Lurk and learn – don’t shoot your mouth off in sector chat. At best you will look like an idiot. At worst you will make more enemies than you need to.
  • Join an alliance.
  • Don’t pick fights for no reason.
  • If you need to steal or raid for a mission, use alliance buddies wherever possible.
  • Guard your bases at night. It won’t stop determined medal-hunters, but a bunch of fleets may encourage them to look for easier targets.
  • If you can afford it, buy a commerce module. It will pay off in the long run, particularly if you are in an alliance.
  • Once you can kill level 20s, auto like crazy for resources and blueprints.
  • Hydra Rancs FTW.
