a new gamemode that is kind of a mix between survival and scenario mode.
the player sets out ships and orders as usual, but they do it multiple times. when the first wave is destroyed, we bring in the next. there is a limited number of waves though.
lets say that we have a 3 wave game. both the player and the opponent have 3 waves each.
the player wins the first wave, but has few ships left and they are badly damaged. the opponent quickly dispose of them with little effort, however the player managed to take out the fighters. without the fighter support, the opponent is doomed… or so it might seem. the player hadnt planned to destroy the enemy fighters so fast. his second wave was made up of mostly anti fighter frigates. the opponent has little touble wiping them out. the player has his last wave sent in, which is mostly made up of stationary armour tanks. he wipes out the enemy cruisers, but half of his forces is destroyed. the opponents last wave was made up of fighters and carriers. he cleans up the enemy tanks and stand victorious.
each wave has its own pilot and resource limits. i believe that this would make for even more tactical games than we have already. the player planns all his waves before the game starts.
