    send in a conq hull, i used my Impact Cruiser with combat speed 92 to draw the ships in the 122 on the left, and parked it in the fog lower down, then they target your defender hull, in my case my Houndmaster, could also try using a Missile Cruise, not has quick as Impact, but if you go straight for fog bank as soon as you set them off, you should make it, or very little damage instant in base repair :)

    Missile Cruiser can also be made close to indestructible and will draw fire for a VERY long time before eventually dying, then have a really short repair time. The only problem is it cannot be launched along with conqs/defs, so won't do any good for ranking them. They are quite handy as blockers in other Assault targets, provided tier restrictions allow them in.

    Me: Here is how I clear the fleets out of the 500 with Silverfish
    Worz: Um... You're hiding behind a rock.
    Me: I'd hide behind a preschool if I thought it would help

    That is what the defender tokens are for.

    Ok, i meant the Missile Storm Cruiser with it being a conq and build time probably a lot less than the Missile Cruiser that was even further back in time, plus most have ranked up MSC's......lol

    It's quite simple. Have someone prep vxp target.
    Then you finish it and receive defender vxp tokens to rank your non moving ships.

    Tryed using a gb a few months ago, but it will not let you launch a conq or def class with other classes any more
