I don't know who zoomer is but at the end right at about 1 hour into the game when he tells you "GG" what he doesn't realize is that he is actually winning. He has a Cap ship sitting idol cause he is an idiot and a SB with HCs pounding you and he gives up. .....I was like, well he is coming back from the flak spam and all of a sudden he gives up. Well actually for some reason I had a mini dump watching the replay at 1 hour so I don't know what happens the last 12 mintues but that was my view watching both sides. He had more money, fleet capacity, metal and crystal and his factories were sitting doing nothing. I was scratching my head a few times.
No offense ofcourse.
The flak can't really have 18 damage a shot can it? that is more than a frigate...what is the deal with that? does it shoot slower or is that damaged cut at least by half when firing not at fighters/bombers? Cause if not why build frigates at all lol
I wouldn't call Zoomers an idiot...he is a fairly capable player and had a lot of pressure on me. Everyone makes some mistakes, or gets focused on managing one area of the map. I think he was off colonizing with the other cap -- probably forgot it somewhere. And no, he was no longer winning at that point, but he wasn't quite losing yet either.
After you minidumped, I destroyed that Starbase and the HC's with the flak / marza / hoshikos. He said GG, because the tide had definately turned, but he hung in there a bit longer. Assuming he did pull back and make static defenses or muster enough HC's, it was certainly within my power to make a different kind of ship, right? Point is, I didn't need to...I continued to push my way back toward his HW.
Flak damage is split amongst its banks, so while it is high, it can't project all that firepower at one opponent and is bad for focus fire.
It only does 25% of it's damage vs most things except for lrf's and some other stuf.
It does 50% damage to most stuff.
