    I only did notice attacks from East or West, never from North or South.
    I did try some things, like attacking the bases on the map from each side, but it looks like coming from East or West is random.

    It seems that the location of your dock and shortest route to the dock determines the attack direction.
    Not sure though and I hope someone has a definitive answer, its quite essential to build a good defended base.

    all go to sleep, there is nothing to worry about, game is just fine, you just need to change all your settings to reduce lag a bit, offcourse all the new players will understand that and do that at once to play this wonderfull game.

    I think that the direction of attack should be based on....wait for it...the direction of attack:

    Define 8 different starting points (Upper Left, Upper Left, Upper Right, Left, Right, Lower Left, Lower Middle, Lower Right).

    Then whichever point is 'closest' to the angle actually used by the fleet in MAP view in approaching the base should be the starting point. The game clearly contains code to calculate this angle because ships face the correct way when mining a resource.

    So, for example, if I attack directly from the 'south', then the starting point should be 'Middle Bottom'.

    Attackers could easily start where they wanted by first moving to a waypoint near the base in the direction they want.

    well u cant tell because of the way the compose repositions itself. you can really only tell on ur own base and thats how i figured that one attack came from the north.

    From what I see, it's either from the east or the west. And your ships come in from one of the two sides.
