Seems like every Strategy Guide by players is rendered Moot...

I appreciate the ingenious tactics that some players employ when fighting high level VEGA Cargo, however, it seems after every patch, these new strategies are rendered useless...

    Strafe 4 or 5 on a Talon or NH will prolly cut the incoming Harriers in 37s and 40s to pieces before they can even fire. It's just a matter of upgrading the right items.

    Talon with Mass and Strafe 4 are already very very fast and can hurt a Vega pretty well. Add a decent explosive shield (since the harriers fire scatters) and use Mass drivers to hit them hard (they seem to absorb explosive damage) then you might end up with say 10 minutes repair time for your whole fleet.

    And the movements are also easy. Group ships, rotate a bit, fly away from enemy, wait until everything is annihilated.

    Probably? I think you need to test it before saying it. And FYI, strafe against 40s doesn't work. Tried it. Doesn't matter what level the thruster is. Use rear thrusters and do a short run, turn fire, run.

    Also, have you tried the game today? Battleships changed. The OP is right, the recent update screwed with all current Vega guides, and in no small order =(
    I don't play much anymore =(

    No doubt man.  The ones I made for vega where I showed pics of a 37, how the fleet was layed out,  What to attack first, second and last....  very next patch the layout of the ships changed.

    My formation and strafe guide for newbs in the player guides section was like totally obliterated and made worthless with weapon destruct range change.  Which was the same patch the vega layouts changed.

    Thats the only feedback they truly listen to and its not for our benefit its just to make the game harder.

    Getting res off even lower level inplanet fleets is getting stupid. How are lower level players supposed to have any level of success?

    LoL, , Tactic guide, you do realize tht in a sense the  "Vegas" are the programmers's fleets basically their end of a FVF battle. Yes they'd take from here for an update there. I like how Kix has not changed since its inception, still a good player/team oriented game base that continues to get better.
