I have this problem too.  I tried spamming bombers to kill the caps but the kol just eats them alive. ANY TIPS?

Spam flak, it's like the only ship that can shoot both kols at once...

But flak gets eaten by the GRG. There is nothing to stop the Kols!

KOLs just big flak. Even have flak ability. 2 KOLs + flak fleet + anklyon (flak titan) = winning

No, once it hits level 6 and gets finest hour it is one of the most effective units at killing vettes in the game. Sorry hummer, your hard AI strategies don't actually work in the real world.

Lol no this is why no one takes you seriously Seleuceia. Marza even with MB sucks against vettes because vettes are so fast they can just run away.

HE is right Seleuceia. You need a Kol and flak burst to deal with corvettes.

You're the only troll here Noob.  Just because you don't want the Double Kol strategy (or exploit as some consider it) brought to the forefront, don't think you can discredit the attempt of the OP to bring this out into the light.  If not for the sensible Exposé of this and many other game dynamic flaws, the normal everyday player would have little to no recourse in figuring out how to handle this type of thing. 

The irony is that most players have abandoned this strategy because of the triple Revelation counter.  But I won't go into that since that subject touches on an actual full blown unbeatable exploit which renders the game virtually irrelevant. 

So, next time you want to roll out your Double Kol, just wait till you get hit with the chained Clairvoyance bug that was left over from vanilla but never addressed because the idea that anyone would actually build 3 Revelations was so remote.  But, now that you know, don't expect anyone to share the triggering sequence with you because unfortunately that is a very closely guarded secret due it's extreme (and embarrassing to the developers) nature.
