Hello, Commander!

The Bonus is applied to the gathering speed, and not to the gathering time. The reported case cannot be classified as a bug since this is a part of the regular gameplay. I have moved your topic to Game Discussion thread.

I think I may have some info which may help you bud :)

1st off, Boosts are off the BASE collection speed (set by the level of your microbiotic Drill tech)

Here is mine; 45 C p/h




Next come the Boosts.

You get +50% collection speed from a lvl 21-22 radar

That is 50% off whatever your MicroDrill gives you. (In this case, 22.5 each; 50% of 45 is 22.5) 

This brings me to 67.5 Crystals per hour. (45 + 22.5)

Now comes the Tapsite boost (Buyable for 400 crystals, lasts 24 hours)
It gives an additional +50%, but this is STILL straight off the MicroDrill number (45) NOT the combination of your radar and micro drill (67.5) 

 Again, 50% of 45 is 22.5. So 67.5 + 22.5 = 90. 

(OR, 2x +50% boosters = 100% in boost. 45 + 45 = 90.)

Either way, max collection rate is 90 C p/h!

HOWEVER, one more game changing factor exists!
Your units do NOT start collecting until after a 5 minute period of sitting on the tapsites. (Gotta get all their mining equipment out I suppose :p) 

Note the first hour = 83 crystals. Not 90. Because 5 minutes of the 60 minutes is spent 'preparing' to tap.



SO, for 5 of those 8 minutes, your troops are doing nothing on that tapsite. Upgrading collection speed will not change this wait time!!

Note: Same tapsite. added 5 minutes to compensate for the 5 minutes lost. 90 Crystals!



So what does this all mean?

Microtapping is iffy. Everytime you capture a tapsite, 5 minutes will be wasted doing nothing.

So if you hold a tapsite for 10 minutes, half of that time is pretty much wasted.

Its best to do a large tap. But THAT should only be attempted with 100Mil+D.

And even then, with MoR n the like around, Your tapsite wont be safe ;)


Forget the Mutagen; we need Unicorns! (May also may or may not be a DCL somewhere out-n-about. Come say hi! :3)
