Androsynth bubble bathing
« on: May 23, 2008, 02:44:28 pm »

(Newbies: Bubble bathing is when an Androsynth spams its primary and hides behind a cloud of acid bubbles. It's a defensive fighting style. Sometimes the tactic is obnoxious but it is still legitimate in many circumstances.)

Let me preface this post by saying I have no problem with the tactic. This thread is regarding Elvish Pillager's balance mod, but I'm putting it up as a forum thread in case someone else wants to weigh in.

I think we should kick up the Androsynth primary armament energy cost by 1 and drop the ship's price to 18. The Androsynth is clearly an equal of the Mmrnmhrm, Orz, Chenjesu and all those other ships around 20 and 22 points. And that's the problem. There's too many ships clustered around that price range as it is. Another positive effect of this change is that Androsynth would become vulnerable enough that Arilou and Pkunk could beat it regularly.

I support this mainly because I'd like to see the Androsynth cost less.  Other than that, I don't feel strongly about it one way or the other.
