By warship you mean something like a Cobra/Viper armed to the teeth
I think those ships have much better cost/damage output ratios than an Asp or Python
The Asp repair bills are no fun
Maybe. But I like the idea of having a big heavy hitter surrounded by smaller ships. I'm saving for an Anaconda (lofty goal, probably not gonna happen), but I might get a Clipper or a Python. I made $20m last night. I just have to hope I don't wear out my trade route, this shit is getting ridiculous to find.
You guys have no idea how strong class 3 weapons are... And you know you want them on your side.
Also, if we do get a wing formed, I'd love a crack at commanding. Would be fun to all be on voice. I could take the brunt of the attack, while destroying shields, then order everyone to target the power plant of asshole1. Boooooom!
Yeah, I agree with all of this, it'd be great to have bigger ship even just for some intimidation.
I was thinking about using my Asp for combat but the rebuy cost is around 750K while my Viper is around 100K, so I can die 7x more in my Viper (which could very well happen
) before reaching the cost of losing an Asp, sounds financially correct for my current skills to be in a Viper.
And sure Vall, I'm also onboard with you being the XO for our Wing.
Here is an article about the upcoming Wings update - http://www.pcgamer.com/elite-dangerous-12-preview-flying-together-with-wings/
Look forward to the update!
EDIT - From the article, "It's called the 'Wings' update, and it will let up to four players
group together to patrol the galaxies as a single unit".
Hmm, only 4 players eh? I was hoping for 6-10, but I guess with instances only handling around 20-30 people I guess that might make sense.This comment was edited on Feb 18, 2015, 08:44.
