Each looting transaction (robbery) "falls off" after 30 days... so it is a constantly revolving calculation.

You can increase your production (mining) in order to increase the amount you can loot without penalty

ty qwerty,

Mining is good, but very slow...:(

So, in other words, if I pick a new raid, it shouldn't get penalized. That's not the case.
Penalty applies to all raids new and old. The counter in the trade section is a global aggregate of all your loot. If it is exceeded, you are screwed:(
I just confirmed it in my new colonies (new raids - penalty applies).

I take it, however, that it resets every 30d. Time to go away and get back in 30 d :(

Yes, the penalty applies to your entire raiding scheme...no matter which planet you launch from. Consider it a tax on your raiding.

And yes, each raid "falls off" after 30 days.... so if you rob someone on 1 May, in 30 days it will fall off your record and not count toward your total anymore. Of course, they all add in, so if you loot a lot on one day... it's gonna be there for 30 days.

Increasing your mining production is good to produce res, sure.... but it also increases the amount you can loot without penalty. I don't know the formula...in fact, the admin may have never made it public... but your looting limit without penalty is tied to some percentage of your production, in "unires" (convert everything to vespene). By increasing your mine production, you can loot more without penalty

Not a bug, it's by design. Go to Trade, towards the end. You will see "Looted resources" and "Can be looted without penalties". If 2nd 1 is negative, you have overlooted for the month and are penalized by 50% until it becomes positive. It is updated daily.

Fully aware of this, it's in the 'bug post', currently at approx 7% of my 'looting capacity' , still getting a 50% penalty even when I have 93% spare capacity

I was talking to giedrius123. I am well aware that you know what you are talking about. However, it is faster and better for newbies to check their trade tab b4 getting in too deep;-)

No, as Galactus said above, looting was a 30 day accumulative resources, so whatever you raided on day one is removed from your total on day 31 etc etc, a "rolling 30 day".

That is how it used to be, however it would seem that now a standard 50% penalty is applied all the time,  apparently to address balance issues, cannot really see the thinking behind this....but if you look back over the last 6 months some of the game changes have been beyond reason.

It would seem that whoever is implementing changes is determined to sabotage the game and shed players.....only us crazies continue to play, if you still want to play, go to your doctor for depression medication, it will really help

So, now do you know what's going on mh1?
Does this happen to all level players while looting grays? What about raiding active players, is it now 25%? If you overloot do you still get penalized another 25%?

Agreed 100%. This is a raiding game. Reducing loot from raids is like shooting yourself in the foot:( If this is going on, it's time for us to leave...

The only information I have was given by Victoria in 'bugs', the 50% resources collected on a raid is now standard, I assume it applies to everyone, but who knows?? no explanations are given before introduction of changes, as far as what happens extra if anything happens at all when your looting capacity is reached, I have no idea
