5-15 is up. Nomad Rakhir Class Cruisers.

Skips 5-5 and 5-13, and only beats 5-14 by the narrowest of margins (those fighters are scary!).

5-16 posted. Basically, the swarm frigate spam I posted on the side earlier... I gave up futzing around with Empire, couldn't make it work.

This one is a sweeper, so hopefully it gives you a bit more challenge ;)

Haha...like 8 and 14 aren't horrendously challenging enough? I've played that Swarm challenge a few times too, it's a killer...

There are some great fleets in this NEC. Hopefully zGeneral and Follick will get some new ones up soon, I guess they've each had a few days off GSB.

NEC 5-17 up. Alliance Plasma, yeah I am really cashing that fleet in.

Skipped 13, and while I luck out and beat 2 with 4%, let's just count as though i skipped that too.

BTW what happen to everyone? I was gone for a little bit and everyone is gone.

Well, personally I got sick of trying to create an Order rush that could beat everything so far ;-)

Think I'll be too busy with the campaign for a while to get back into this, but who knows? I only have three races left to post...

Better late than never?
Just put in a Parasite fleet that cruised through every challenge accept for SAC-8 - a federation uber-plasma loaded fleet.

It's just a spam of a single cruiser type in a a fairly neutral formation designed to take flanking fleets or fleets head on. Parasites really kill any attempt of using fighters. And missile spam can backfire.....

I don't think that ever was posted as an official forum challenge/tournament. If we want someone controlling that perhaps Finebone who had had originally posted it.

I have the last publicly posted 4400 challenge though I am still getting plenty of retaliations.
