in this post i will state why i did not vote for the other races mainly because i forgot to >.<
Tribe – They’re really cool with their autocannons and howitzers (which are not appropriately named, for they are very short ranged, but their need to get close to the enemy and THEN blast without proper protection with shields and armor, they just don’t do the job for some missions.
Federation – I love the extra hull integrity bonus, but they’re the only race, apart from the rebels, that don’t have a race-specific weapon!
Rebels – Unless I’m using a fighter swarm (I hardly do that anymore, it used to make my game crash), their speed bonus doesn’t seem effective to me. Plus, no race-specific weapon?! NO.
Alliance – They look awesome with their bug-like ships, but the only reason I use them is to make it seem like there are alien invaders out there with guns humans haven’t even invented yet, like Guns that shoot pure Lightning, or some other weapon of destruction
Empire – Ships, again, look cool, but they lack the difference of the look, and hull output, of their ships unlike the other races. Plus their ridiculously large ships make it extremely hard to protect them from fighter attack, and a worse aspect of it is that they are must vulnerably to fighter attack because the people building them mostly use shields on empire ships, and the fighters can shoot inside a shield bubble.
remember, those are just my opinions, it doesn’t mean you have to go SHUT UP YA **** THE EMPIRE ROCKS!!!
uhhhh… ok, maybe that was a bit much there :S
