And Stasis bomb works very well with Gothic's lance since your lance always hits the enemy unlike torpedo, cannon and other things.

Also the tactician in me frowns upon the Monotone flavor of your fleet and upgrade choices. :cry:

I have a Gothic cruiser in my fleet as well almost all the time. Upgrades in lance effectivness, of course. The ship itself is a victim when engaging macro canon ships without support. That why mine is usuall supporting a macro cannon ship with 3km armor pircing upgrade. I favour the combination Gothic and Dominator, but a Dauntless with 3km upgrade or some sword frigades work fine aswell. Excellent support ship, but nothing to carry your fleet on its own.

I find the Gothic fun to micro, but I tend to field Dauntless LCs with armor piercing, extra teleportarium and space marine flavor when skirmishing vs AI. Plus a couple Swords with armor piercing as well.

I'll automate the LCs to close in and set lightning strike to autocast, then micro the Gothic. With the reload time on a lance broadside, high energy turns can be a big help to put out extra damage.

As the previous poster said, Gothic will get wrecked pretty bad in a close range shootout with macro cannons, but in skirmish mode at least it's totally fine to bring a bottom heavy fleet with lots of LCs and escorts, lots of targets to keep AI interested.

All gothics is brave as well. Find them very subpar.


At anything over 3k range they deal more damage broadside to broadside than any other imperial cruiser, or any chaos cruiser except the acheron for that matter. In fact with range upgrade at 9k the retribution is the only thing to out-damage them imps have, and only barely.
