Summary0024763: Golem & Ark Energy Costs
DescriptionThese are current far too cheap IMO. After a brief discussion, I'm recommending boosting Arks from 7k to 50k; 100k was another suggestion. Golems from 50k to 200k. There are a number of cheap ways to make them much more powerful without increasing energy usage, and with the energy inflation that's taken place in the game they are simply super-cheap energywise as compared to more conventional options - i.e. strikecraft, frigates, turrets, etc.

Strongly in favour of an increase to golems here as well. I love golems, but Sage is quite right, they've got too cheap in this regard for how strong they are. I have no opinion with regard to Arks.
