Don't tell me you are serious.
Do you really think this is a good fleet?
You will need at least 5 cruisers to be effective.
You know that.

(To new personell.)
This is rubbish.
Read through the information in this help thread. You will find information that will actually help you.
For instance..fighters should make up the bulk of your fleet. They shield your capital ships.

In other words what these guys are trying to say is:
No that isnt a good fleet to have. If you read some of the other posts in this section of the forum you should be able to get a better understanding.

yah, fighters may have a low attack and defence, but there the frontline, they protect ur money ships,

Star Destryoers and cruisers as well as bombers. Lots of those three. Maybe some fighters for mine grid fodder.

ok to rehash this old joke thread... and hoping the newb that said sd's are good... fighters, bombers, torps for offence. fighters, shielders for defence.

yes, it has been said severall time in this thread that this is a joke

FIGHTERS ARE VERY IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
for offence combo of fighters and bombers ....with torps
defence is Fighters and shielders....

i've been playign this game a while, and i've never used a cruiser or a destroyer

Satr destroyers are excellent they are well worth the money and have the best stats for any ship.

star destroyers are worthless other then to jump some score noob. they are not dependable. fighters and bombers will wipe sd's with no prob.
Post by: Johnny Reb(81070)
2005-03-24 02:27:49
Well you have too use them in conjunction of fighters and bombers. They help alot and they do improve your score.

After years of research, and the death of many scientists and test pilots, I have devised the perfect fleet.

300 mice to serve as my pawns
300 Rats to back up the defencive line
200 Gerbils to serve as either attackers or defenders
100 Hamsters to provide that extra sting in the attack
100 Guinea Pigs to provide superior defence
100 Chinchillas to serve as good all around warriors.

To give that extra edge

1000 Naked mole rats to tunnel through the enemy line
1000 Meerkats to break up an attack before it begins

which ship to get? i'll take the blue one. grey is my my favorite color, but grey spaceships are so dull looking.

I would like the basic idea on how to play and be effective in SC.

Check out Moncals noob manual in the SC Newbies Forum (This Forum). It is well written and very informative.

wait.. read sents first... then run a few times to get the basics down. then read moncals.. it will be easier to understand this way.

It's true you should have a cheap frontline in your fleet, or in the case of some very powerful empires, armadas. but fighters are junk. regular destroyers are the way to go.
Post by: philldodilldo(22259)
2005-07-14 18:32:56
um... NO, if u learn to play the game u will learn that fighters, bombers, and shielders are the only ones u need... the rest is cannon fodder... dont speak of something u know nothing about.. thank you and bye bye.

Thanks for the compliment Opac. And..yes..any noob can ask me advice on this game. If I don't know the answer I can find it out with very little problem.

I stopped using standard ships. My fleet is made entirely of paper airplanes. I line up thousands of them and then throw them at other players really, really fast.
Post by: Caza(2720)

I just use babies. They just drool over everyone and while they are going"Ewwwwwwwwwwwww!" I kick them in the nads. Easy as that.

We should put the babies in my paper airplanes and then throw them at other players. We will rule the Galaxy with our fleet of Baby piloted paper airplanes!!!
