My goodness... My pkunk!
« on: December 06, 2005, 08:04:58 am »

I loved to fight the Sa-Matra over and over again, I just keep loading games. Then, I was using a Pkunk Fury and it rebirthed 9 continuous times!!! I defeated the Sa-Matra (for the 101th time) with 1 single Fury! Muahahahaha!

Yep I just said 10 times, but actually it was more like 11 or 12 (I can’t remember the actual count).  Shocked

My brother and I would play each other in hyper melee I played with the pkunk most of the time while he played khor-ah. I managed to wipe out his entire fleet with 2 or 3 pkunk the last one dies that many times. After that I was no longer allowed to play the pkunk (He was certain I was cheating some how).

I don't think I ever needed to reborn my pkunk to finish the Sa Matra

seriously, it's the easiest ship to win against it

and (personally) the Druuge is the most fun Smiley sniping those red targets  Roll Eyes

An Awesome computer had resurrected at least 17-20 times once ;(

Needless to say it destroyed my entire fleet, made me angry and caused me to say the computer officially cheats Tongue. Good job it was super melee huh?

I'll echo the above comments and say the Sa-Matra is pretty easy to defeat with the Pkunk Fury, but I much prefer the raw power of the Utwig Juggernaut, as it is effectively immune to all of the Sa-Matra's attacks, can wipe out the shield generators in only a few volleys of fire, and can easily take out any remaining fireballs/green floaty things while taking zero damage in return.

Another fun ship to use to take down the shield generators is the Ariloulaleelay Skiff; fly in, zap a few times and teleport out.  Rinse. Repeat.  Getting rid of fireballs and green floaters after the shields are down is a lot trickier, however (this is also an issue for the Pkunk Fury).

One or two times for me. But if I play against a friend they have 20 reborns minimum ( my cousin had 28 reborns once. Luckily, he sucks with the fury ).

I always play super-melee with my little brother, I use pkunks, supoxes and orz nemesis's. while he uses kzer-zas, kohr-ahs and chmmr avatars which is totally unfair... What's the difference between hypermelee or supermelee anyway?

  • Star Control 1 has Melee.
  • Star Control 2 has Super Melee.
  • Star Control 3 has Hyper Melee.
I wonder what SC4 would have had? Smiley

If accolade made the forth star control I would imagine it would have been:
3D Melee.

Quasi-Melee. Which means it's not really melee, but it looks a lot like it...

That's "Al-phax", not "Alpha-x".
