i think buffing empire by giving them some additional shield boost might b a good idea since many ppl think empire is under powered… thoughts?

also poll on how many ppl think empire is indeed underpowered
for those who haven’t tried empire yet please try them then vote :slight_smile:

Well, I’ve tried Empire, but I haven’t tried all the others so I don’t know how helpful my vote would be.
I’ve deliberately avoided Tribe and Rebels because people say they are overpowered, but they make find opponents.

I ran some tests with the rebel valhalla hull against the praetorian hull stripped of all bonuses so its just the size that matters.

equipments:
4 x heavy plasma launcher (modded to 0.05 tracking speed)
3 x ultraheavy armor
1 x basic powergen
1 x crew module III
1 x engine II (modded to 1 thrust)

I decreased the engine thrust to make speed a factor without them going out of position and decreased tracking speed to compensate.

10 trials were done, and I recorded the potential damage of missed shots

stats:

Valhalla/Praetorian

14.44/37.50
27.50/59.72
30.56/49.17
17.50/21.39
32.50/29.72
19.72/63.33
23.33/41.39
13.06/29.72
14.72/27.78
16.92/78.61

average:
21.025/43.883

more than twice the difference… good luck covering that up with 10% of shield boost…

not to mention that the valhalla has 7 percents in it self also…
