FANTASTIC POST!!!Mountjim wrote:I have been following the shiplist discussion with interest and since I always play the Romulan I am probably as qualified as anyone to discuss the shortcomings of their fleet. Bane makes the point in one thread that the Romulans are underpowered. Thats true. But its not the role of the Romulan to be the brute of the universe, but rather to win via stealth and guile. Kind of like how they hunt baby seals....you sneak up behind them and club them in the back of the head. Still it would be nice if more of their race specific ships were useable and in this light I'll discuss each race specific ship, if I build it, how I use it, and if its not built how it might be made useful. My 2 cents....
But as the Romulan it would be nice to have more ships to use other than just the Swift, Resolute, Darkwing and on occasion Fearless.
That becomes less economical when the W1 costs you 50 MCr, 15T, and 5D. This is part of the solution to slot filler ships.Rimstalker wrote:Sorry to say that, but the post is partly wrong.
For instance, a Darkwing will ALWAYS win versus a Missouri, so there is only the Nova killing a Darkwing.
Also, the Death Specula has its uses as interceptor for special ships (fireclouds, lokis, cobols, etc.), which could be improved by lowering the techlevel and making the hull a bit cheaper in mcs.
The Bright Heart is perfect as it is: Build two of them for 4 pbps, one with transwarp, the other with stardrive1, both with mark8. Recycle at a starbase and all you need to do is raise hulltech to 10 and you can build a Darkwing with mark8 tubes and transwarp. Costs you 2 pbps and you save 9000 mcs.
And, in fact, an excellent response. You are posting EXACTLY what I wanted to see here. Discussions of what is good and bad about each race's list.Rimstalker wrote:@mountjim, do you use the intercept attack for all its worth? When employed correctly, you can destroy virgos and rushes for one darkwing each, even when they are travelling in fleets AND when you don't have spare ships as towers.
Why? You are getting the ship parts back, so you save 8950 mcs. Oh, and of course you lose the 100-odd mcs for the Hulls.Zaphod Beeblebrox wrote:
