Kills or Deathblows counter for your ships/fighter wings.
« on: February 21, 2015, 04:49:34 PM »

It'd be nifty to see, on the Fleet menu next to the veterancy icon, a simple counter for the number of kills/deathblows a ship and fighter wing has made across it's career. I often wonder how many kills my flag ship has made total and also wonder just how effective my other ships/fighters are.

Yes, it would be nice. On the more gamey end: shield, armor, hull, and EMP damage counters for each ship, too.

How many enemy crew & marines you have killed.

How many of your fleets crew & marines have died.

A moment of silence, please, for all those lost in engagements, misadventures, catastrophes, failures, and debacles.

I'd love to see that stuff tracked. would add to the experience as a player. Also could be useful for seeing how the different variants I make do.

Tens of thousands. Hundreds of thousands killed.
Millions dead in a long play trough.

Where do these people come from?

Not people, soulless constructs from the game itself, and the game can spawn as many as it needs to feed the thirsty munchkin.

As for the topic, I do not want a pointless stat to clutter my screen.  I do not care who kills who.  All that matters from combat are the spoils.  XP and levels are my kill counters, in a way, even though trade gets lumped into them.

Ah, Megas, how we love you. :D

These stats would be fine.  They probably wouldn't interrupt your grinding.

From the munchkin PoV, as Hopelessnoob noted having such stats somewhere might also be helpful for evaluating a ship's performance. (Although it should be on a different screen; having it right next to the rank icon would probably look awkward at best.)
