The above are with absolutely no fleet support, but if you brought in even a single Sentinel, you could easily defeat their fighters.
No, if you get to bring in something, he gets to bring in something too.
Let's keep the tests simple, no need to complicate them - your capship of choice (vasari) vs. his sova (tec). That's what this is really about. I think there is NO capship the vasari can field that will beat his sova and defend your roid. Your best shot is probably the skirantra, but if you want to try one of the other ones, more power to you (he'll just go bombers and you'll get raped).
yeah, excuse my MP ignorance... but a Sova can only field like 4 or 5 squadrons of SC in its first few levels right?
Watch how fast those few bombers will kill your capship or newly-built starbase unless you have something to counter them. Seriously. That's why you are forced to go carrier.
why not take a battleship and a carrier or anything to support it really, or just 2 battleships/juggernaughts etc, supported by a few LF/LRF and flak... drill the sova into the ground and let your flak mop up its SC.
Uhhh, no. I already know I can beat him if I have a significant advantage. I want to know how to defend my roid if everything is even.
i havent heard of a Missile Barrage being abused lately, throw that into a fight (if you can manage it) and watch him yell and scream at you for a change
MB is level 6. My game was a small map and we were both only level 2. For the tests I am commissioning, you will only have level 1. Also, no vasari cap has MB, so pick another cap and another ability.
I don't have a problem with ANY PARTICULAR VASARI CAPSHIP losing to the sova in this scenario. I do have a problem with ALL VASARI CAPSHIPS losing to the sova in this scenario. There has to be one vasari capship that can win or even-steven the sova in this scenario, but there isn't. If there is, you find it and tell me which one it is, and how to use it.
