Question about the ending sequence
« on: November 25, 2003, 08:56:04 pm »

I imagine that most of you have watched the ending video for SC2. During the video as your ship gets closer to the Precursor battle platform it takes several hits. A total of  about 22 hits (I had trouble counting) including 8 in the "Fragile Crystals" and 11 in the cokpit. (3 of them at point blank range)  How can the ship survive that?  In battle against the ur-quan ships  with 50 people aboard it can take about 8 fusion blasts and about 9 blades.  

Anyway, I think it is one of those things to make the movie look better - but is there anyway to explain it rationaly that you guys can think of?

Either the Precursors were worse weapon designers than the Ur-Quan, or the 3DO version of SC2's ending isn't to be trusted.  In the PC ending, the Service Vessal recieved no incoming fire.

You know, once you drop the shields it doesn't shoot at you again anyways. So the 3do vid, dramatic as it is, is not to be trusted.

I have another opinion, the ship was weakened so much by your actions that it's fire was coming out in a very reduced state. ?

I dunno lol

Do not trust the 3do! Noooo...

But anyways, I haven't actually seen the 3do ending, but what I just read, I find it somehow illogical, unless you just leave the defense thingies fly around and get to the Sa-Matra.
