Battlevalue – Friendly Code examples

The Battlevalue is a ship value that can be set via the ship’s friendly code an that determines in which order different ships will fight in a bigger battle.

Battlevalue examples for different ship friendly codes:

 

numerical
Friendly Code
in ship
No P.E.
No ‘Kill’
with P.E.
set
with mission ‘Kill’ with P.E. and ‘Kill’ set
Value change (0)  (0) (0) (0)
001 1 1 1 1
010 10 10 10 10
100 100 100 100 100
201 201 201 201 201
250 250 250 250 250
378 378 378 378 378
685 685 685 685 685
967 967 967 967 967
non-numerical
Value change (0) (-5) (-10) (-15)
afk 1015 1010 1005 1000
mkt 1015 1010 1005 1000
nUk 1015 1010 1005 1000
ww2 1015 1010 1005 1000
x12 1015 1010 1005 1000
x  r 1015 1010 1005 1000

Please note:

  • The ship with the lowest battle value is the most aggressive and will fight first.
  • If two ships have the same battle value, the lower ID# ship will fight first.
  • Ships without Primary Enemy or mission ‘Kill’ set will only fight if they are being attacked.
  • All codes that don’t have exactly three numbers will be given a base battle value of 1015.
  • Battle values do not apply in the “Priority Intercept Attack” sub-phase (otherwise known as “cloaked intercept”), which happens before all other combat (and is processed in reverse ship ID# order).
  • The above friendly codes are examples; of course you can put any code.
  • Matching friendly codes will not fight.
  • Exceptions are NUK and ATT (ship to planet combat) and NTP, MKT and LFM (ship to ship combat).
  • One- and two-digit friendly codes are known to be unreliable and so are not included in this chart.  While errors have been recorded with low-value numeric codes, our testing indicates that these are more likely due to matching than any other cause.
