Against a human, it will take forever. The only thing you can do is to hope he won't use the shields and get hit.

Against a computer it is alot easier than it seems. Go near a planet and wait for him. Then when he gets near the planet he start to move from left to right. Aim on him. He will use his shield even without being shot at because it is laser beams that has 0 second reaching time. After his shields are drained just beam him to death ( or to half crew ) then use gravity-whip before he will blow you up.

In the beginning it will be hard and you most likely get hit by him or the planet. But like (almost)anything else, practice.

Thats my 500$.( Don't ask me, you always say "that's my 2 cents" or things like that).

If you want a real challenge, a fight of glory and honor and death, herotic and magnificent melee, try terminator vs. shofixti without getting hit.

Got my Yehat problem figured out.  Basically my error was staying and firing too much.  I did the same thing as described in my strategy guide, but used short bursts from X-form and then ran away and was convienently out of Yehat's range.  I'm still not that great with it, but I'm down to beating a Yehat with one Mmrnmhrm now  Grin

Yea, but then the Umgah jump you afterwards....

Wait a second, wasn't Primat always calling him Umgah-Luki?

Look out Smith! You're liable to be nailed with foul smelling, rapidly expanding goo in your life support, or a direct tap from your fuel tanks to your faucet, or...worse...


Whatever happened to Primat, anyway? She just a lurker now?

I don't know, but I was wondering why the boards felt both safer and less feminine at the same time.  The abscense of a female Kohr-Ah would be a good explaination.

Note that I said ALMOST all of my old friends. I wouldn't forget about my fellow Enlightened, now would I? Most of the ppl I came in with are gone though, and only a few like you still prowl the Forums.Remember GM? Or Omni? Even Bioslayer is gone.. Hell, I even wonder what happened to Rockasaurus Rex and captain_kirk. All gone now, dust in the wind...

Man you should write <a href="http://uqm.stack.nl/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=Gendiscuss;action=display;num=1063911276;start=15#15">Here </a>

More connection to the topic itself.

(ok how you do link here like in html? Looks like html code isn't working here...)

Relax DJ, we're going off on a tangent. If you feel that more needs to be said about the original subject of this thread, then feel free to post about it, and I daresay the nonsensical chatter will cease fairly quickly. Otherwise, behave before I feel forced to hit you with a pillow. Wink
