    If he healed them just enough to fight then yes, I do it all the time with subs during an event...

    Edit: At least that is what I think you are referring to because there is a slimmer of health on the top left indicating the health value of the entire fleet.

    OP is referring to the extremely low health on the SS-A fleet.

    Its a tactic used by missile & sub fleets. Since they specialize in having range & dont plan on being hit at all, you only need em repaird just enough to launch from dock. Very common, but NOT a hack.
    Never coined a dime since day one & proud of it.

    There is a certain amount of health required before you're allowed to engage in any battles (I'm not sure what's the limit, maybe mod or admin can confirm)... I tried to force my fleet to hit another outpost with roughly 95% health as I didn't want to wait and wanted the fleet to go back double-time (back in the day when this was still available), but received a pop-up that I had to dock the ships and repair first, no kamilaze allowed =P

    True, I know its at least 15 per cuda and 50 (I think) on an FF flagship (for res) during events.

    Edit: But it may be an actual percentage based on the total health...

    This is only true for attacking other fleets, savages, etc. If you launch the fleet with only a few seconds health you can still bait someone else into attacking you.

    no its not hacking,we do it most times to make players trying to hit your base mad.
    i did it one time with ff,s all you do is let dead fleet come in re,p it a small bit say 10s,
    then send it back out..

    No hack just a weak players idea of a way to claim they win.
    They will repair about a minute per fleet then when die say but I cost you more repair time.
    Just one of the million little exploits and ways to avoid long repair times people have came up with lol

    That's because a 99% dammage ship still has 100% firepower. Common tactic used all over the place. If they would reduce the firepower according to the dammage this would'nt happen.
