My friend and I love sending challenges back and forth to each other, and I really didn’t notice it til he did, but missile spamming seems the best strategy in a one-on-one cruiser VS. cruiser fight.
The best example challenge he sent me was a Tribe Cruiser loaded out with several Rocket Launchers. I tried dozens of different builds against it, using Nomads and Rebels mainly, but the only two times I beat it were when I made an unholy heavy Cruiser with a s#itload of armor to make myself immune and two Armor repair systems. The other time I spammed Scramblers and just threw in two Quantum Blasters. (I refuse to use Cruiser Lasers anymore…it makes me feel dirty…)
We start out about 1,000 away from each other, give or take.
Am I missing another way to counter missile spams?
