Let me know what you think of the expansion, especially the new modules and ship hulls. I want to see if people like the decoy projector and multi-point tractors, and if they find them over or underpowered.
I got the expansion. it’s great so far, but I noticed what might be an oversight. On the title screen it lists all icon of the other expansions I have in the lower right corner, but there dosen’t seem to be an icon for the Outcasts yet. Not really a big deal, in the grand scheme of things, but just so you guys know.
I think the decoy projector is quite good; I’ve seen it soaking up a lot of EMP fire (which is the best kind of fire to have not hitting my ships) among other things. In combat, it looks like the decoy diverts more fire than it really does, though - because while the real ship isn’t in range of the enemy guns, the decoy is. If there were ammunition limits, it would definitely be overpowered. But as is, I think it works about as well as it should.
I’ve primarily seen the multi-tractors on the AI side, ripping up my fighters, but judging from how fast my poor little birds vanish from the screen, I’d say it does quite well.
I am really digging the frigate pulse gun and the new long-range weapons as well. All in all, I’d say the Outcasts are another great addition to the GSB family. Well done!
(And I’d just like to say that the new Outcasts music is gorgeous.)
I set up some Cruisers with Decoys and Frigates with Sniper Lasers, the enemy has a habit of shooting at the closer decoys and their well protected Cruisers while my swarm of sniper frigates absolutely guts the enemy.
Loved the existing expansions and Outcasts also looks pretty amazing, so a no brainer for me as well. So far I have bought all the packs on impulse (gamestop). Will the outcasts also be released on that platform eventually?
