So....after some testing, NEC 5-5 still beats everything that's come after it. Mwahahahaha!

Imperials coming soon, once I can figure out my air defence :-(

5-8 posted.

I don't expect to win, since I came in late, but I do expect to make things difficult ;)

Let me know if anyone is one race away from winning. Then I can unleash my tribe bomb FGJ!

I don't think they are stationary, just very slow. I have one armor wall and everything is set to escort that. The armor wall does not have any formation or escort commands.

still man, speed of 0.1 is almost 0
I got the same comment from u last time when I had my detour corner in NEC 4
just replace the armour with an engine, it will make a difference.

I can't replace an armor because the ship doesn't have enough power (seriously). It's actually not TOO slow (0.05 speed).

Btw, my comment was about stationary fleets, not slow fleets. I don't mind slow fleets, but ships should at least be able to reach the opposing fleet.

NEC 5-11 is up (finally!), Empire Skirmishers. Skips 5-4 and 5-8. Both losses are pretty close, and a better player than me could probably tweak the fleet into a sweeper. But considering all I've done this week has been work, sleep and play GSB I can't really justify spending any more time on this fleet!

Try it out against your mid-speed frigates zGeneral ;-)

EDIT: If I move everything down a couple of boxes it beats 5-4. Does that count?

5-12 up. Alliance anti-rush. Skips 5-8 and 5-3. 5-3 split up my fleet and I didn't want to fix that and retest against everything again ;o

Aaaand....5-13 posted. Federation Light Cavalry. Beats everything although 5-9 can beat it depending on whose fighters get released first.

I'm so in love with fast cruisers and pulse fighters right now.
