Re: Adeptus Astartes Favor and Assault Boats

However, carriers do still make good ships to focus on boarding anyway, because assault boats and boarding action don't share a cooldown. An Emperor-class battleship can technically get 9 boarding actions that way. Now imagine for a second, an Ork BB fully carrier-specced. That's six assault boat s...

Re: Post the most hilarious things you saw

Had the Sword of Sacrilege as an assassination target and killed her at the last second as she was jumping out by torpedoing and ramming her rightup the stern with my Retribution. Cue the warp rift opening and swallowing the huge mass of exploding wreckage. Tzeench musta been slightly surprised. :mr...

Besides taunt and stasis use, it's importnat in that mission to get into the fight quick and take some flak off the Eldar. So get some Dauntlesses in there instead of slower cruisers.

Re: Twin Linked weapons

All macro upgrades only apply to the macro component and all lance upgrades apply only to the lance component.

I generally wouldn't bother much with weapons upgrades on ship with mixed armament and instead go for speed and survivability on ships like the Lunar or Slaughter.

Re: 44 ships

This is battlefleet gothic SHOULD BE. "Lets defend this vital imperial world with our mighty fleet! i.e: one mars and a few escorts and a really stupid AI with two dauntless light cruisers who just zoom off and die separately" is NOT what the game should be. Sigh. So much promise. Sigh. T...

Re: Carrier fleet - the Art of Engagement

Carriers don't work on Imperial Navy Oh do tell me, what exactly is the Emperor all about? :D Carrier-heavy offense doesn't work well for Imperials. The Emperor, Mars and Dictator are all support ships - they provide fighter cover, long range support and the capability for opportunistic bomber/assa...

Well, depends. It's pretty useless for offensive maneuvering now, but good at getting a ship out of a bad place or speeding up repositioning. Definitely not a must-have skill anymore, but it has its place.

Re: IN 'Concerns'.

I think the problem is tha a lot of new players come in and don't really understand that the biggest strenght and to some degree weakness of the IN is their flexibility. They build their fleet around a single tactic and then predictably fail when they run into a counter to it. You can do such a rath...

Re: [SPOILER] SM Strike Cruiser stat line (SM Favour Mission)

Only bombardement cannon ever used by Ork ships was the good ol' Ded Killy Device on one of their battleships and the 'ammer BC - it was ounted in palce of the prow torpedoes and the funny part was that it could either fire as a bombardement cannon or as a torpedo launcher.
