Heck no, one ZFP could slaughter that fleet!


No, that's a lie.


Or is it?

In general, Arilou vs. anything except kohr-ah is fun.
same with slylandro
I also love to see how many limpets I can fit on a normally fast ship, then obliterate it with a VUX

Surely you mean "Anything except Chmmr"? Arilou vs Kohr-Ah is a nice challenge.

My team of four Androsynth and three Chmmr is the most unfair team ever!

Yes, I did mean that. But I still don't like playing Kohr-Ah. FRIED makes it too hard.

I like both the Chmmr and the Kohr-Ah (and Ur-Quan). And you cant say nothing about it!

Ur-Quan is a banana boat.

the easy ur-quan is...harder than the impossible one. One simple reason...he don't send his fighter to his doom!

Why don't all races have point defense lasers?

When you play Earthling vs. AI Ur-Quan the Ur-Quan will charge at you endlessly when it's set to Easy. When it's set to hard, it will charge you, then try to catch you by turning around and looping around the screen. A smart Earthling pilot, however, will always be able to win as long as he keeps his distance. The best way for an Ur-Quan to win is to just stubbornly chase down the Earthling with its superior speed. In this case, the AI on easy is more of a challenge.

it is still hard to beat an ur-quan.

i love playing with the supox and seeing which AI ships i can beat consistently. The ship is a lot of fun to me, but has so little crew..just 4 more crew and i think it would be a good midlevel ship.  Trying to get to a 1:1 ratio with supox against Korah is a nice challenge.

Ditto what was said earlier about vux- against some ships they are just dogmeat, but completely debilitating an opponent and then moving in for the easy beam-down is fun in a patient, evil sort of way.

Yehat was my favorite ship from SC1 and i was disappointed it played such a small role in SC2.  i was good enough with yehat in SC1 to defeat several Ur Quan dreadnaughts before losing my ship.

For the Regular game i have done a LOT of practice killing ilwrath with spathi- if you get proficient enough with this (its not hard, just requires a lot of patience ) - you can wrack up a lot of RUs early in the game  to upgrade your Command ship-which after you get a good enough speed and acceleration you want to use to kill ilwrath instead.  ive done this mostly when i did not have access to a good resource/rainbow world map.
