Hey, me again, the most annoying newbie.
Despite a lot of naysaying I’ve seen around, I want to give the Empire a go just because they look so damn awesome, and in the naive hope that they’re not quite as bad as the forums seem to make out.
Anyway, I’ve not made a lot of progress myself to be honest. I’ve got about as far as:
- Fighter - just a cheap rocket fighter using the Phalanx hull. Couldn’t really do much with empire fighters on my attempts.
- Missile cruiser using the Legion hull, picked a smaller (relatively) ship with an ok number of hardpoints to sit back and spam missiles.
- Heavy cruiser using the Praetorian, for weapons it’s just packing proton beams and 2x emp cannons right now, but I managed to fit a monster of a tank on it. Weapon loadout could probably use some work.
Edit: oh, also, how’s the imperial laser? Didn’t look that impressive to me but might be overlooking something.
But anyway, fail as these may be, I could really use some advice from people who can actually use them properly on ship layouts, general strengths (if any) and weaknesses. Thanks!
