I’ve been playing GSB2 well gratuitously and i seem to gravitate to the Kraugerisk, it might be because of the insectoid design of their ships (i choose mainly on aesthetics) or because it feels they might be a reference to the Krikket people of Hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy, either way they seem to be my favorite. this led me to wonder what the general consensus was on best race, so please vote on the poll provided
For me, it was a choice between the Zyrtari (boosted shields) and the Kraugerisk (boosted tracking). I ended up going with the Kraugerisk because their Sabre dreadnaught gives them the ability to crush speed-tanking ships with missiles in a way the Zyrtari can’t replicate, while still having the ability to run massed shield-support setups fairly effectively.
I love the Zyrtari, not only because of their bonuses but because of their ships- they are quite pretty and of course for some provide some sort of heritage with the Federation (both GSB1’s and Star Trek’s).
