I saw videos where they said use corvettes, but they aren't fast enough to dodge the scatter missiles anymore, so any idea what to use?

    You can't equip them on a corvette.

    Try targeting a 13 instead and send your cruisers past the enemy ships in a V pattern to off to the sides, fork some to the left, and some to the right. Equip with rear thrusters and scatter missles (or other longer range weaponry). Use a good shield or you will spend more time repairing then attacking.

    The goal here is that you want the enemy projectiles to miss your ships as you move past them as much as possible (hense the rear thrusters, faster ships = more misses).

    Getting the distance down for how far out to pass the enemy fleet will make a huge difference in success, you want to pass them so they are as close to your max range as possible, the closer the enemy gets to you the more projectiles will hit you.

    Once you master 13's then skip 15 and go to level 17 fleets, the level 17 fleet is similar to the 13's in makeup.

    When you unlock rancors you can use the same technique to easily farm everything below 20 without damage, but upgrade to plasma batteries when you equip the rancors.

    Is this a serious question I just started playing and I can take out level 15 basses. I already took out a level 20 base at level 18. I then later was also able to fight that level 20 off since not only can I dish it out I can take it. Seems simple to me if you want to kill a level 15 and you cant research better ships. If you get attacked by high level ships research guns.

    And he was talking about cargo's not base's

    I have to Agree with Autumn on this gen's or even harriers with batteries and pulse laser should do the trick

    Don't. Waste of time. Use frigs on 13's once good with that. move to 23's once good with that take on 27's
