They're really strong. Any bright ideas aside from slowly chipping the shock V down with PC V and Torps?
With proper control and spacing. Mass Driver and Gauss will always miss. I watched my friend test me with six Venoms and not one of my Gauss V slugs hit him. I've moved the Gauss CM X a bit "Outward" so battleships have an annoying time circling and will have to circle around. Wastes time.
All my CMs at X now and have PC V and Torp III. But i don't have any decent armor or shields on them yet.
Like with other Kixeye games attack is stronger than defense. Since you can not control the fire of your turrets even if you are online the top attack is always going to defeat any possible defence. You can only set up for one type of attack and the enemy can bring several fleets - scout to see what sort of defense you have and deploy the appropriate attack force.
i am not yet that level, at my level its rancors. While anything less than plasma 3 will rarely hit a rancor, it is just a matter of what damage the rancor can deal in 5 minutes. I kind of anticipated this to be different in late game as i would expect plasma 5 not to be dodgable even with rear trusters. Reading from the replies though, killing the furies doesnt seem very feasible. So in that case, at end game it would still be a matter of making your base have more hitpoints than the furies can take in 5 minutes ?
