I've got a soft spot in my heart for the drone too, only because it takes significantly more tactic to fly the thing. If anyone needs a bit o' help flying it, look at this. Scroll down a bit to see the Drone tactics.

"Cry havoc and let loose the dogs of war!" is the quote you're looking for, I think.

I like the the ZFP ship! - It is one of the best "small" ships. It has the tongue weapon that is the most effective that I almost use exlusivly. I think the ZFP is good right were it stays.

I agree with Umgahbob. The Zoqfot ship is a pile o' poo.

The Umgah ship is slightly less crappy because I find it's easier to hit something with the Umgah "cone" than with the stupid tongue thing (obviously I don't have FalconMWC's dexterity).

The both require practice. They are both short ranged, but the Stinger is fast so thats less of a hastle. The Stinger's primary weapon is sweet. It sprays everywhere. The tongue should be used in moderation.

Actually, come to think of it, the Druuge ship is pretty crap - having to burn your crew as fuel.

yeah, Druuge suck.. Sad
Usually, i just burn 1 crew, point towards my enemy, and hold the fire button, and hope  i got some hits. When i lost nrg, i repeat. This sends me off the galaxy, and usually kills me, because i hit a planet.. Bummer... Wink

I prefer ZFP over Umgah, though. ZFP is fast and has the spray weapon. I think a ZFP can even kill some chmmr zapsats! Lemme check that!

Excuse me, Maulers are awsome. They are very hard to kill without sacrificing a few ships. Sure they deal themselves damage, but for each 1 crew that they sacrifice they can kill a whole ship. (on average yada yada yada)

I wish there was some way to have the flagship in melee.  Two people with customized flagships battling it out.  It would be great.

No no no, that's incorrect. The quote you're refering to goes like this: "Cry havok and let slip the dogs of war". I don't know where it's from; it's just one of those dumb things that sticks to you once you've heard it.


its Shakespeare. you are quite correct in the quote. i just used my interpretation of it. thanks for pointing that out though. good recall Shiver!

The Druuge Mauler can kill more then just Avatars. It's just the Mauler demands sharpshooting skills since, you can't afford to take misses. The worse ship IMHO has to be the Iiwrath Avenger. It's was designed just for one purpose, to counter Earthing Cruisers in SC1. Outside of that it's craptastic top speed and melee range weapon makes the Avenger pretty darn useless. Despite, it's cloaking ablilty which is effectively nuffiled by the camera focusing in melee. The Umgah drone was more of fun ship to play with then a serious combat vessiel. Both the Shoifxi Scout and ZPF Stinger required some mad skills and balls to play effectively with.

Actually, the illwrath can take out quite a few orz because, while cloaking still tells of enemy your postion, it stops all guided weapons.

Id have to say the worst ship is either the avenger or the scout. They are both really cool ideas so ill let them slide Grin
The shofixti self distructs, I mean come on, thats awsome.
The ilwrath is fear. It invisible and then suddenly your dead. haha, it doesnt quite work that well but its a neat idea.
