woohoo I now have Graviton Level 1. :) :)
This is a big step for me. This is the third time I have tried for Graviton. The first two ended in getting fleet crashed.
This time around, I was scanned 3x in the early stages of building my Solar Satellites.
Now that I have Graviton, I will go back to building mines and working on fleets. I still need another 2 levels of Ship Yard, and 1 more level of Hyperspace Engine. Those will wait a bit though… I want most of my Metal and Crystal mines at 24+.
UPDATE: If you wnt to find out how to get Graviton without being fleet crashed, check out the Free Bonus in the OGame Tips Strategy Guide
The only thing that Graviton requires is the 300,000 Energy. It doesn’t use any Metal, Crystal or Deuterium. This energy is only needed once to research Graviton. After that, you can go back to a normal energy level.
NOTE: Working with your alliance to fleet crash you AFTER you get the Graviton Research completed is a good way to harvest those solar sattelites and get a couple of 20% moon chances!
