Your current melee set
« on: May 18, 2004, 05:33:18 am »

what is the current melee set you are playing?  

Right now with the computer on awesome I'm doing either one of the 100 point teams versus the 300 point armada.  Sometimes I win, sometimes I don't...but that's what I'm doing for a challenge these days.

What about you all?

my melee team is the following:

Chenjesu
Shofixti
Ur-Quan
Earthling
Spathi
Pkunk
Vux
Utwig
Slylandro
Melnorme
Druuge
Zog-Fot-Pik
Syreen
Orz

I mainly play against my brother, whose team is following:

Ur-Quan
Kohr-Ah
Mycon
Utwig
Earthling
Thraddash
Slylandro
Arilou
Pkunk
Melnorme
Syreen
Androsynth
Orz
Chmmr

As you can see, 8 of the 14 we have, are the same. When my brother isn't around I just practice against awesome cpu with the same ships. Sometimes I win, sometimes I lose.

I always play with random ship selection. How about you people?

Mine:
Orz Nemesis
Yeaht Terminator

PC:
Koar-ah
Ur-quan
Chmmr
Mycon
Earthling
Vux
Melnorme
Pkunk
Druuge
Utwig
Orz
Chenjesu
Ilwrath
Thraddash.

You probably think : yea right....
But to be honest I sometimes wins... You will be suprised how many ships the nemesis and the terminator (especially the terminator Grin ) can take.

The only problems are the Utwig, Vux ( sometimes) and the Melnorme for both ships.

Anyone who doesn't play with a Spathi seems crazy to me...

They are exellent against all computers and good against draining a utwig shield.

I mix it up a little with Skiff's, X-Forms(of course), Juggers and Eluders(last resort).

After a while you find some really fun matchups like X-form vs Guardian and Skiff vs Eluder.

Are you referring to human or Computer Terminator? As I can kill a spathi with arlou on awsome without trouble almost everytime.

But killing an ariloo with a spathi isnt so easy.

I like killing spathis with orz. I have my gun to the back but a little sideways and I keep turning so that I can hit him but he cant hit me.

I agree with Falcon - Arilou (you) vs. Spathi (awesome computer) is almost a slamdunk for the Arilou.

I don't use Terminators I find them very clumsy vessels har.har.har. Arilou are a challenge to beat regardless of what you use try an X-Form very interesting battle.

A lot of the time when I fight skiffs I sacrifice crew to let them burn down their fuel, and then I kill them.

Ah.... For the computer AI, it stops shooting when it has the minimum energy required for a warp, so you kind of waste your crew for nothing  Shocked

It took me forever to notice that Druuge Mauler is a perfect ship against Chmmr Avatar. The power that pushes the Mauler ship back when shooting, is stronger than Avatar's tractor beam and therefore you can easily shoot your batteries dry and hold still. If it looks like you are getting too close to the Avatar, just increase rate of fire and burn your crew for more batt. It's really excellent.

As for the Utwig Jugger, I prefer using Vux Intruder to destroy it, since it only requires one gravity whip to get ahead the Jugger and then slime it. After the first slime ball, it's easy to hit more. And then I keep sliming it until it is so slow that I can circle around it's back and start having fun.

I don't use Spathi Eluder, because in human vs human battles, the fight tends to get boring when there is an Eluder on the field, since there are very few ships that can match it speed and catch it.

I dislike fighting against CPU, because it has inhuman reflexes. Trying to hit a CPU Pkunk Fury takes forever and Jugger is nearly impossible to kill unless I misuse the AI and drain it's shield in a lame way.

If I play against computer(awesome), I prefer faster ships; Pkunk, Arilou, Shofixti etc. Spathi is also great for destroying both Ur-Quans. To computer's side I put mostly both Ur-Quans, Chmmr, Chenjesu etc. I like challenges, because I am Peewee incarnate Cool.

If I play against my cousin Jack, my melee team is: Ur-Quan, Kohr-Ah, Chmmr, Chenjesu, Mmrnmhrm, Melnorme, Utwig, Androsynth, Arilou, Orz, Pkunk, Slylandro, Spathi and Yehat. 309 points, awesome team.
