Your favorite / least favorite ship in melee
« on: March 20, 2009, 09:57:41 pm »

Favorite -  Druuge. I love the recoiling weapon. Especially fun when playing against the slower ships.
Least favorite would have to be Supox or Shofixti.

Oh and hello everybody, I just registered.

This has been discussed before, but since I'm in an exceptionally good mood today, I'll contribute.

My favorite is Slylandro because it is fast and manouverable. It can be dangerous to any other ship except Chmmr.

My least favorite is Mycon (as an opponent) because it regenerates crew. I've had battles where I have killed at least 50 Mycon crew but lost in the end.


And finally, to Hmmhmm:
If you just registered, you should participate in the melee tournament on the 28th.

Sorry, I guess I should have done a search for similar topics.

As opponent I probably like the Utwig least, at least when controlled by the AI.

Thanks, I've participated in the tournament a few years ago, and will try again soon.

I thought your favorite was Supox? When did that change?

to jaychant:
I'd say Slylandro, Pkunk and Supox are the top three for me. It's not that important to put them in order.

I like the Mycon and Ur-quan, I really can't do a thing with the Umgah.

It takes a lot of practice, but you can actually do a decent amount of damage with Umgah. The key is to get the angle right.
