All of them, just because it's SC2.

Primus inter pares is for me the Supox Blade.



In an attempt to complete awesomeness:


The Stinger has three captains,
argueing 'bout FRUNGY! teams;
swearing Pkunks, singing Syreens,
the masked ones are Jugger capteens.

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 our favourite ships.

Zipping Drones and jumping Skiffs ever so small,
Blazing Guardians and Avatars impressive tall,
and the burning Torches leave their trails
after a number of battles the crew always fails.

Confusing Traders, sliding Blades,
Slylandros malprogrammed probes,
Fighters and DOGIs following everywhere;
and a hidden Avenger who is hiding there;

Frightened Eluders evading Terminators,
X-Forming Robots, they're helping all,
in our rebellion to bring the downfall,
of our civil warring Ur-Quan Masters.




Sorry, both Ur-Quan races are indicated double, but their civil war helps bringing their downfall..... And I did not want to change meep-eeps part.
But I think I got them all, did I miss any? If yes, sorry. I'm passing too seldom nowadays to get back to you if you find one missing.

Feel free to adjust my rhymes,
and any of my stumbling lines,
while you're boring in hyperspaces,
but remember: do this for our races.

Life on shielded planets is no fun,
Freedom and liberty is what we wan',
So promote the news, we're going in,
and we're all helping for this WIN.

I like the Thraddash Torch. It rules against cyborgs. But I haven't play melee much against human opponents so...not sure how good that ship really is.

The Torch is incredibly effective against humans. Most ships are powerless as you stay out of range with the afterburner while slowly chipping away at the enemy ship with the Mark 6 blaster.

Unfortunately, this means that the Torch guarantees very stale, boring gameplay.

Versus the stupid cyborg Thraddash carves up.

But for PvP, itís considered by most to be a faulty ship. It can escape from any situation with its afterburners and its primary weapon is incredibly weak.  So you can never catch it or destroy it, but it can keep its distance and fire its pebbles at you. By this rationale its an excellent ship and horribly undervalued Ė but only if its controller is prepared to fight for hours at a time.

Hence itís not really used by anyone in PvP, or at least anyone who actually wants a meaningful battle.
