  1. Alpha 3.2 is LIVE

    This is so friggen cool! I really hope we see some UI for fleet formations in the near future! Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using Tapatalk
  2. The "Origin 300i" thread

    Hmm... I wonder if an "Avenger rework" (size increase of about 20%) will be enough to make the 300 feel sufficiently distinct from the 100 series. It certainly leaves a large gap between the 300 and the 600 series in the Origin lineup... Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using Tapatalk
  3. Aegis Eclispe

    I don't think I agree with that, actually. The whole point of a torpedo bomber is that it is a grave threat to larger ships, and in this case, the target of this MILITARY bomber is an CIVILIAN industrial vessel. An Eclipse should very easily be able to destroy a Reclaimer, I think. ESPECIALLY given how much they've suggested torpedoes are going to cost. I think the balancing of torpedo bombers should come in the form of ordinance cost, vulnerability of torpedo bombers to other fighters, and the narrow focus of the ships. Bombers are generally pretty limited in their applications, and as such I don't think you'll see them wandering the 'verse very much. I think you'll only see them as part of dedicated hunter killer packs, and even then, given the suggested cost of torpedoes, rarely. Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using Tapatalk
  4. RSI - Andromeda (Constellation)

    Yeah for sure... I realize things are very much in flux, what with this being alpha. I know that I'll definitely end up with a constellation AT SOME POINT. I'm just trying to determine if that point is now, in the near future, or way down the road, hehe. If the general consensus of Connie owners right now is that it's functional and worth flying... I might just have to snag one sooner rather than later. :-) Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using Tapatalk
  5. RSI - Andromeda (Constellation)

    Ok... Confession: I friggen love the Constellation. I've loved it literally since the moment I first found out about star citizen and started looking at the ships. I love the size, the crew complement, the looks, concept, versatility and it's stats on paper. From day one, my friends and I thought that it would be such a cool experience to crew up and go explore the verse in one. I really want one, But a while ago I heard a bunch of chatter about how it's not worth actually owning, right now because turrets kinda suck, it's a bit too fragile, etc. Has that opinion evolved at all, or is it still viewed as an underwhelming ship, combat wise? Would be cool to get a rundown of the pros and cons from some owners who have flown one recently. Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using Tapatalk
  6. Characters (FPS) - 3.x

    I'm not a big fan of clothing/hoods on armor from a practical perspective... But damn it looks cool sometimes! Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using Tapatalk
  7. Flying Fortress The Aegis Retaliator

    Ah, ok... So there still might be an argument for a Tali rapid deep-strike group if your targets were like hull C sized or larger. Bigger boom=less time sticking around to get the job done. Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using Tapatalk
  8. Flying Fortress The Aegis Retaliator

    Actually... Wait... What size torpedoes does a harbinger carry? I can't seem to find it on the ships page... Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using Tapatalk
  9. Flying Fortress The Aegis Retaliator

    I suppose, now that I think of it, you could run a Harbinger hunter pack and have similar results to a Tali strike group with fewer ships involved... The harbingers having less of a need for escorts. I should also confess that I am basing this all on the assumption that something like a Hull C/D/Starfarer takes one to two torpedoes to kill... If this is not actually the case then squad makeup would have to change accordingly. The idea, though, would be to go into an operation with enough torpedoes to down at least 3 or 4 large, high-strategic value targets before returning to base. Potentially over multiple play sessions, if thats how long it takes to locate the ideal hit, and that's why I figured the Tali might be best for that kind of long duration mission. But again, I suppose if you flew a group of 3+ harbingers, you might be able to pull off the same thing. You'd probably need Vanguards for escorts for your Tali, anyways... Why not just make them harbingers and remove the Tali entirely, right? Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using Tapatalk
  10. Flying Fortress The Aegis Retaliator

    I dunno... Besides the retaliator looking super badass, I can totally see some fun long range and long duration bombing missions into deep enemy territory to raid cargo ships and supply lines. I think that sounds like a friggen blast, and could be devastatingly effective in a campaign verses another powerful org/fleet. Work with a long range strike group, scout out some big targets, jump in, tie up the escorts move in with the Tali and turn some Hull's and starfarers into brief miniature suns, jump away laughing and tallying up the amount of arms, fuel and credits you guys just watched evaporate into vaccum! The harbinger has the range to do something similar, but it can't carry the amount of ordinance/do the same kind of damage that a Tali could inflict before having to return to rearm. The eclipse won't have the range (though I will say that I like the potential for stealth bomber gameplay A LOT!) I just think the Tali occupies a very specific niche that other bombers won't be able to fill in quite the same way. I suppose it really comes down to whether or not you WANT to play in that niche, yeah? Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using Tapatalk
  11. 3.2 PTU released

    I think I recall hearing something about being able to trade/pay players aUEC directly in 3.2... anyone been able to do this in the PTU or know if it will be in 3.2 live? My brother and I got my dad a Freelancer package for his birthday and we like to fly cargo runs together... Trying to figure out if there's a way we can pool out starting aUEC to fill it up.

  12. Origin 100 Series

    Now that "agent smithing" has been clarified, I'm beginning to think that, if you don't have NPCs positioned all around the verse, having a couple of small, fast, long range ships like the 100 positioned around the verse will be the next best thing. Want to engage in a last-minute capital ship mission a few systems away, but don't want to move a (potentially slow, gas guzzling) primary ship from your current location? Hop in one of your commuters and make a fast burn over to where ever it is you need to be. Sure, ship and personal transport via a genesis or what have you is probably an option if you have the luxury of being able to plan in advance... But for those moments when your organization needs someone to fill in for an essential crew member who couldn't make it, there's the 100i (or other cheap, fast starter ships).

  13. Aegis Sabre

    Anyone heard anything about whether or not the Sabre will have fuel scoops? Very curious to see how this newly announced fuel mechanic is going to play out. I'm concerned that it will make the role of fighters like the Sabre too narrow to be practical for anything other than very short range or carrier based operations, up to the point of making even simple commercial escort runs impractical. I love my Sabre... But I'm already finding that I fly my Cutlass 90% of the time in the PU, because it's way more versatile. With this new fuel mechanic, I'm considering getting rid of my Sabre altogether in favor of something more functional. Thoughts? Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using Tapatalk
  14. Lexip gaming mouse.

    Anyone seen this yet? Seems like it might offer the best of both worlds for joystick vs. mouse flight controls. Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using Tapatalk
  15. Chris Roberts on 3.0

    (i7 2600k, GTX 1070, 16g ram) I had a hell of a time playing the first day of release, but last few days I've been very stable and getting around 30fps. Don't know what's different... But the game is all of a sudden playable for me. Did they hotfix or something? Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using Tapatalk
