Fleet Upkeep

Postby terminusthrall » 03 April 2016, 00:31

Hi everyone, I am wondering how fleet upkeep is calculated. It seems to vary wildly between games. I just had a game where none of my ships took more than a scratch of damage, and none of the ships i had left at port needed repairs, but i paid 120 in fleet upkeep. I am just curious what dark maths result in me paying more for upkeep when everything is operational than when all of my ships get crippled.

Thanks

Yeah i have been thinking the same thing. it is either based upon your admiral level or your ship levels.
grab some data, try rref and see what happens.

Gonna guess it's just some made up "tax" on the payout of whatever you are playing, since i've had sky high and also dirt cheap upkeeps at lv8. I'm pretty sure it's just related to how many points the reward is for that particular point battle, but you always come out positive.

Ive done some quick math over 6 games. Varying fleet loadouts (Lcs mixed with bc. Crs with bc. BB + lCs. BB + cr)
What ive found is 4/6 games are approx 20% of renown gained. 2 games were 16% and 24% respectively

renown won 251 maintenance 40 (16%)

won 105, maintenance 25 (24%)

won 101 maintenance 20 (20%

won 243 maintenance 48 (20%)

won 389 maintenance 77 (20%)

Note renown won is summation of all positive renown prior to maintenance taken out.

The first two games were won and lost respectively. 3rd and 4th were both losses, 5th and 6th were winners.
i have fleet data if you need but, 4/6 games suggest 20% and the remaining two average to 20%.

Fleet upkeep could be a percentage of your fleet points still in space dock. The more points you leave at home, the more maintenance you incur. If you take 700pts of ships to a Data Defense, your maintenance is like 40-60. If you only take 3 CLs (315pts) to that mission and you win, your maintenance is like 100pts.

It could also be just a flat tax.

upon further research it does appear to be proportional to the amount of fleet non in the fight. AKA my newly made imperial admiral has way less than 20% maintenance.
