Team Alpha shouldn't take as long to get videos done for, I just need to figure out what their formation is.


Oh great, I didn't even think of having to change formation since the teams got changed...

Can we have a quick conference over it?

Well that was a little sad, first boss that I have been disappointed in. Point defence was such that with at least 5 ships firing massive amounts of projectile weapons at it, I think I saw about 10-20 shots get through in the entire battle. Would have been a lot more interesting if it had even a chance of being close.

Perhaps it has a bit too much point defense...
Looks like we were supposed to use beamers to hit this that thing... :S
I really should have just built a beamer boat.

Wait...isn't there still the "???" ?

While some of the measures may have been a bit drastic, the general idea was to encourage a fleet to be more diverse in its weapons/modules. Team Beta was very projectile-reliant, and had few secondary options such as Lancets.

Valid point. We can thank ASM and his dislike of ruling with Lancets for our team lack of same. :P :lol:

Well, lancet wins suck.

I keep wondering why you guys don't limit lancets to one per ship like this. That would be more balanced for big boss ships.

From the looks of it, it might be up to Venator alone to figure out Alpha's starting formation.

I raised the HP of specific boss weapons/modules instead.

That's very helpful, including ship names and a specific order :roll:.

Also, Lern2Spell "aegis".

EDIT: There may be some delay with Team Alpha. I have jury duty this week, then a burst of work is coming up after that.
