So, i’m on the second mission, ive been on this mission 10 times now, and i cant win, i cant even get the enemy down to 50%…
I love using missiles in most games, so i equipped a bunch of cruisers and frigates with high armor piercing missiles (considering the 50% drop in shield effectiveness on that mission).
Every single missile, no wait, 95% of all missiles (to be fair lol) miss the enemies… I mean they just pass right under every single ship, be it a frigate or cruiser. Then they swoop around and MABY 2 or 3 out of 20 gets a hit. Tried with target painters on fighters, didnt help. Tried with tracking computers on the cruisers, didnt help.
So i said, k whatever ill play the game the way the mission designer intended, or something… So i just went for lots and lots of lasers, some disruptors and emp. The disruptors and emp worked fine.
Enemy shields were down almost all the time, and they were disrupted quite alot, but NONE of the cruisers ever died, or even were close to it… I mean i literally watched my armor packed ships (tried with shields too) being ripped to shreds while my ships did virtually NO damage what so ever to the enemy.
Not with missiles, not with torpedoes, not with megaton missiles, not with beam lasers, not with small fast lasers, not with high armor penetrating weapons, not with anti-shield weapons (disruptors worked though). Its pretty not-funny when you spend 15min each time designing and deploying several different fleets and combinations when none of them have any effect what so ever, nor any feedback on exactly what is going on.
NOTHING works… lol
