Well if you lose them alot you don't always wanna keep building them every time you lose a set. I also guess they'd be good fodder against defense since d doesn't have any rapid fire.

They're just easy quick and cheap so building a couple hundred isn't a big deal most of the time.

EDIT: Though i do miss the days before they stopped probe raiding, people used to have thousands of probes

Back in the day your probes could hold cargo, so, when in huge numbers, they could quickly move res. Or if they were in like the 10's or hundreds of thousands they could be used to raid defenseless people, so it would be like a small cargo raid in 30 seconds.

Only if you're going against the heavier defenses, never against any type of fleet because EVERYTHING has rapidfire on them.

To make it simple, the only situation where it would be smart to use them as fodder is if someone built alot of guass and plasma, and maybe some HL's and IC's, not much LL or RL, with absolutely no fleet. And I'm pretty sure you're never gonna see that sooo...

Some people build them to make themselfs look bigger than they actually are, so they look like they have more ships and scare people away.

1 planet G1, 1 planet G9, 1 RIP 000s of probes 10% speed so when people see your fleet they see your fleet score and notice a BIG diffence so they rethink sending anything incase of ninja (works with JGs best)

I only have 20 probes myself...

Its all I need, I get full reads of all planets anyway, and only send them one at a time, I haven't lost any in weeks.

Hooray for High level espionage tech!

I almost never lose probes, but that's because i don't scan active people too often.

My esp tech is at 11 for now, ill probably upgrade it soon though.
