View Full Version : Whats with the last pop upgrade for SM?
11th Oct 04, 6:02 AM
is it just me or is the last troop cap upgrade not really doing anything for the SM. When i have 20 cap infantry (which i assume is max) theres still an upgrade left at the sacred stronghold, which when researched doesn't increase your cap.
is it a bug?

I've noticed that too, but it doesn't seem to happen a lot. Sometimes I'm at 18 and the last upgrade takes it to 20, but sometimes I'm at 20 and the last upgrade does nothing at all...
Don't tend to pay much attention to my squad cap, but I think there's an element of the random involved.

I think I've figured this out myself today, I noticed that the squad cap was increasing whilst I was researching it, my theory is that it adds, say 5 to your cap but it adds it at a rate of 1 every 20%

Have you ever noticed that sergeants increase your squad cap? ;)

Really? That might explain it
Have you ever noticed that sergeants increase your squad cap?
Seriously? I doubt that...

The Sergeant thing is true, just saw that it adds 2 to your cap, at least the first one does, can't say if they all do. If they do, then having each squad with a sergeant probably make it look like the upgrades do nothing

Yeah sergeants or equivelant and 2 cap each. But max squad cap is still 20. So if you have a few sergeants it will seem like the last research does nothing. However if your sergeants die the cap drops back down so its still worth researching the last cap just in case.
Sergants add +2 to infantry cap, machine pits add +2 to your vehicle cap.

I think it's a Retail bug. In the Beta, once the Infantry Pop hit 20, the upgrade was removed as an upgrade. But, now, in the Retail, even when it hits 20, there's still a wasted option to upgrade even further, but you can't since it's at max.
Hope they fix that.
It is not a bug, as soon as your sergeants get killed the cap goes down, as somone already noticed it is a good idea to research it anyway (once you have the requisition) so that you can continue popping those marines out.
BTW: The same is true for Chaos, their champions and pits also add to population cap.
