What is your favourite race and why?

Post#1 » Sun Mar 05, 2006 8:17 pm

Hello all,
I hope this hasn't been asked before, if it has then I apologise in advance :oops: . Anyway, I was just curious what the most popular races are. Some well known players on the site are quite obvious, but what is it about that chosen race that gets your rocks off, and how about the rest of the members? Please mark your favorite race on the poll and please leave a short message about what, in your opinion, is the best thing about that race.

Even if you don't regularly post in the forums, please add your pick to this poll. The more who vote, the wider range of opinions and the better indication of what is most popular.

Unfortunately is appears to allow only 10 poll options. If your favourite is the Colonies of Man please post your reasons anyway and they can be added to the numbers via messages rather then on the poll itself.
Unless of course ][avok has the power as Sysop to add another poll option.

To be honest I have only played a hand full of races but so far my favorite is the Cyborg. I can't get past the assimilation ability. Less need to bus people around to get planet economies going. Lots more tax money quicker.

However if you think another race is better I'm ready to be convinced.

While not my favorite race, there is a lot to be said for the Lizards. I love using them to take over a planet, star base and all.. and then getting that o'so personal message the following turn.. "YOU MOTHER ^!&^@#$^"... That puts a real smile on your face! :lol:
Best Regards,

Joe

CoM.

1. Fighters. LOTS of fighters.
2. Minefields? I wave my private parts at your minefields!!
3. Fuel? No, I'm not having any trouble at all with fuel, why? (snicker, snicker)
4. Oh, goody! I see that planet over there is temp 51 and has 45,000 Bovinoid clans! Whoopee!

I'm pretty sure the Cobol is the single most useful ship in the game: Fuel scoop, Minelayer, Bioscanner, decent cargo.

And since the foolish Rebels 'give' me a Falcon in just about every game I play I get to HYP, too!

CoM is all about brute force. ...and having a really good economy to produce that force. I love to imagine the look on people's faces when they see nine Patriots and a couple Virgos heading their way. :shock:

1. Lots of fighters, I like them too.
2. My WEBs (and everyone else) laugh at your private parts.
3. One day, I'll have to check to see if that is true.
4. I like Bovinoids also.

Yes, Cobol are nice ships, but they can't scoop fuel if they keep getting stuck.

gotte love them birds. Sneaky sneaky and with the cloaked intercept used appropiately, they have not a single race that can just walk over them.

Just give the darkwings a bigger fueltank, please!

Why? Their small fuel tanks and good fire power is why I like going against the little Birdies. The Resolutes are a little harder to capture with their 8 beams and big fuel tank.

You wouldn't if they were comming your way...

Yo' momma weren't laughin'! 20 or so Heavy Phasers will make pretty short work of any Web Mine field, in case you've never seen it happen.

You'll have your opportunity if you play Critical Mass.

Uhm. I'll bet you do. Love them, in fact. :shock:

I don't think you understand how it works...
