I need much more practice. One suggestion, though. MB the fleet differences shouldn't be that great. 50 points a difference is too much. What about 30?

Well, there is yet another tactic that works in the Fwiffo vs Ilwrath strategy. If you keep a distance close enough to an Ilwrath when firing the BUTT torpedoes, the Ilwrath will de-cloak and try to intercept them with his plasma weapon. And a good Spathy pilot can arm his torpedoes in such a manner that they always bypass the plasma beam and hit the enemy(fortunately the Ilwrath is a large enough ship)

This tactic works also vs the Super Melee awesome AI.

I'm new to this forum, yet I'd like to participate.

Of course, I wouldn't mind a little training before that. Also some other questions:

How can I play online Melee with another player? What programs/requirements/information will I need? I have downloaded the UQM version 0.6.2, do I need something else? Thanx in advance.

An Avenger can be beaten by a Cruiser. But only if the enemy is a computer(even on awesome difficulty). The best tactic is staying pretty far out of range and using your Nukes at the invisible ship. Accuracy and good aim are required. An avenger is slightly faster than a Cruiser, but with skill and smart uage of the planetoid the fight can be won.

Exceptions - unlucky meteor hits which push you towards the Avenger, or spawning very close to the spider ship in the start of the battle.
