Basically the title says it all. I’ve just started playing GSB, and although I love it, I feel a lot of the battles just turn into a big ruck. Cruisers cluster, overlapping one another, fighters spiral around them, and the fight becomes very much about weapons vs defences, with positioning and speed largely irrelevant.
Of course, that might be just a noob mistake, but if it isn’t, I think small challenges (10,000 max, 10 pilots, large map) might make for quite a different experience.
Does anyone know of any small challenges? I guess I’ll start making some myself, but it would be nice to download some too.
Without modding… The smallest challenge scenario is “Defending Sirius”, which is a 20,000 honour, 50 pilots, small map. If you sort the challenges by map it’s easy to find a few on this map. You tend to see a couple of fighter squadrons and about 4 to 15 ships, depending on the designs and whether frigates are being deployed.
I’m all for smaller fleets in larger maps …thats why we have the 4X time thingy any way …would make for more interesting fight also…limiting ships weps Augs in challenges woukld also contribute to replayabiliy …Lets keep improving the game and expanding it …and maybe later we can get some real-time action fights…
