Building no lotus can get you into the top 10!
Learn to build Lotus like a darkblue, so then you can skip it like a purple.
Instead, they convert the Phantom to energy, damaging or killing the glaives and loosing a significant portion of metal. What do you think?
Cancelling Phantom refunds 100% of invested metal, which shoots your storage to full. You can use this metal to flash-erect a Lotus turret if you have spare build power nearby.
So, essentially, the factory already can do this.
can we have a storage strider or storage superweapon please?
This exists. I have observed 20k cost storages walking around shooting stuff.
