Your favorite ships
« on: December 19, 2008, 08:42:55 pm »

So, what are your favorite ships? (Don't think about how good they are, tell me what you like, not what ship is strongest)

My answer:

Slylandro Probe; It's fun to zip past my opponents attacks and then bombard them with lightning. Not very effective and usually fatal, but very fun.

Ur-Quan Dreadnought; The classic giant, powerful energy bolt beats all! Grin

Ilwrath Avenger; The idea of hiding in the darkness and then suddenly uncloaking with a powerful fire attack is awesome! I really wish Melee had a split-screen for this very reason (the cloaking would actually work).

Syreen Penetrator; You get to take your enemy's crew! If it really was effective, this ship would be really AWESOME! Grin


Also, what are your least favorite ships?

My answer:

Chenjesu Broodhome; It is VERY boring no matter what side you're on. It's also annoying to fight a Chenjesu with 5 DOGIs keeping you from fighting back.

Kohr-Ah Marauder; In order to pilot it with good results, you always have to run away. What fun is that?

I dunno, the topic of favorite ship seems like kind of a pointless retread at this point. I could do a "You post the ship you want to use, I'll tell you why you should set your hair on fire instead" thread and it would make for more lively discussion.

I like that the "veterans" of the board don't ever reply with anything that's on-topic because they've heard this discussion so many times.

my favorite ships are the fast ones, in particular the Skiff and Eluder

Well, the topic has been posted and reposted dozens of times. Sometimes even by the same guy.

Sounds good. You do this and I promise I'll give loads of noobish suggestions.

To be on topic I like the Guardian.

I'd like to keep the number of Shiver threads floating around down to a manageable number. Maybe a little while longer and I'll do it. You, on the other hand, promised us something special in Starbase Cafe and have not delivered.  Angry

Why don't all races have point defense lasers?

My new favorite ship is probably the Vux intruder, due to the fun I have with it in netmelee. Mycon too is pretty rad.
After that:
Earthling
Mmrnmhrm (only for doing close-in laser attacks though, the missiles are kind of boring)
Arilou (theoretically undefeatable, hence a test to a pilot's patience)
Chenjesu. Don't ask me why, I just like it.

I tend to like ships that are weak but can be used to deal a lot of damage if used skillfully (or with a bit of luck).

I also like the Kohr-ah because there is much room for creative use of the blades.

Marines on Maulers and limpets on Earthlings
bright Podship plasma and warm Kohr-Ah death rings
Shofixti scouts doing gravity whips
these are a few of my favorite ships


Ok, sorry about that. I don't know what came over me.
