Different people focus more on different ships. I don't very skilled with the marauder, and I almost never use the dreadnaught. I'm sure some people would find that very odd.

Whoo, again a discussion like this. I like these.

But the only things I have something to say of are Probe and Marauder. Firstly, I loath Marauder. It's boring because it's so powerful.

Probe on the other hand ... can beat almost anything computer controlled ... the only ones it can't are ... I can't name one. Of course some are a very difficult, but not impossible. Still I say the price is stable, thus you rarely can avoid crew lossage.

The probe is much like the fury.
It is fast and menouveable. The extra crew makes up for the lack of regenerations.
The probes weapon is better, and ability to reverse is better.
The probes fuel regeneration is worst.

I really don't know why you all complain about the Fury... A little bit of practice and you "master" it.

When it comes to ship prices in melee - It really all comes down to this: What ever ship you like or play the best you think gets a better rating. So don't complain if your fav. ship is the underdog! - All the more reason to suprise you melee enemy!

I don't. The Fury is probably the ship I'm the least proficient with. When it comes to speed demons, I prefer the Skiff by far.

Skiff is easier to use, and it has its own advantages while the Fury has more speed, more firepower and more crew.

And yet, none of them possess the grace and undying valour present in any Shofixti Scout. If only all races were so honourable. So loyal. So dutiful.

Sigh....

I hope that quote wasn't aimed at me, Jiffy.

Poor Lukipela, I think I see fur growing on that Umgasynth(tm) body of yours. How many races are you going to become like?

Then why are you a androsynth?? Or you could make a race the Andfixti  - Maybe that is the race you are look for.

On - topic. I think a lot of people underestmaite the Chmmr ship. I am very good with it (can take out about 10 brutal Green and black Ur-quans.)

Avatars aren't built to take on multiple Ur-Quan ships. I doubt a person could blow up more than three if they played really well against the awesome AI or a decent player.

Marauder > Chmmr.

Marauder wins the battle about 75% of the time. Chmmr wins if he starts in correct position and acts before Marauder finds planet, or gets speed anyway.

I wish someone fixed the computer AI to use gravity whips.

Oh, and one of my new favourites is Zoqfot. A really cheap counter ship for Mycon, Earthling and even Androsynth with some luck and good timing with tongue. Guess some things in my first post were typed in too fast. Smiley
