Styx and Despoiler ordnance bays

Postby Sokaris » 13 March 2016, 21:26

Hi everybody,

I think there could be a mistake with Styx and Despoiler in this game :
- Heavy cruiser Styx has 4 launch bays
- Battleship Despoiler has 3 launch bays

As far as I know, il was the opposite in the original tabletop game (and IMO it was more logic).
I hope it will be corrected.

Best regards.
S.

No, that's correct.
Styx has 4 launch bays (2 per side) and Despoiler has 3 launch bays (1 per side and prow, prow launch bay has more capacity).

Cal old bean, I knoticed when using the dpespoiler on three Squads of the same size are deployed, she's an absolute beast as she is however. the styx deploys more though. I think its becuase they (devs) just gave the despoiler an ordinary lauch bay on the prow.

just about to settle for the night, could you test it so at least i know if my eyes arnt playing tricks on me?

You are right with the video game.

In table top, we had
- on Styx 2 launch bays (port and starboard) with strength 3 squadrons
- on Despoiler 2 launch bays (port and starboard) with strength 4 squadrons

Quantity of squadrons per launch bays seems to be 1 in the video game.
As a result, I'm confused. Which vessel has more ordnance in the video game ?

They should, going by lore, be equal.
But in game Styx has more. I imagine this is for balance purposes, since Styx doesn't have anything near the firepower f the Despoiler.

I hope the Despoiler will not be underpowered versus the Emperor class battleship...
Do you know how many launch bays has the Emperor in the video game ?

4, same as Styx, although the Emperor and Retribution are the slowest ships in the game so that need the extra bit of umph in thier firepower.
