Problem with cure missiles

Postby The World Health Organisation » Thu Oct 30, 2014 10:50 pm

I currently have level three (soother missile) yet every time I hit someone it only cures 1 million.

Please help.

This is true, For big number kills-- er... cures... go for larger nations with larger infestations.

also the more you use it on one nation the less effective it is from what I'm seeing

Basically, the fewer zombies, the fewer heals per missile. On a nation with over a billion zeds, you're more likely to heal tens of millions (or even hundreds of millions.) Once you get down in the vicinity of 50 million zeds, you're only going to pop 1 or 2 million per missile.

So there is ZERO difference between level 1 and level 3 missiles?

You'd have to prod the techies, but I'm fairly certain that the higher levels perform better than the lower ones on bigger targets.

My region's locked and fairly under control, so most of the targets have been small... might have to experiment on one of nations in a feeder region that's probably completely overrun to see if bigger targets are hit harder. No missile I've launched thus far has killed more than 78 million or so, and that's the record for both Mk I and Mk III

I'm targeting nations with billions of zombies and I never cure more than 6 million.

To be honest i'm not noticing any significant difference between levels of missiles in generating cures. the only factor seems to be the bigger the zombie hoard, the greater the millions cured. It then seems to whittle down based on zombie population.

I've noticed a definite difference.
MkII the highest I hit was ~270 million.
MkIII >400 million

I've got MkIII and I haven't done more than 1 million. Targets have had 11+ billion and as few as 1 million. Absolutely no difference whatsoever.

You are also a brand new nation with only 16 million people. I'd imagine that factors in.

That's right, your own population count factors into how many you can cure with one missile as well as the level of cure missile and population of target.
Essentially, the higher your own population is, the more you cure with one hit. I have 1.75 billion, normally hit about 150 million on a good missile on a large target. I have nations in my region that have six or seven billion and they keep hitting triple my normal cure amounts.

It finally makes sense. Thank you.
