Strengths: Powerful weapon(infinite beam), fairly fast
Weaknesses: Beam is vulnerable to cannon fire
Description: This is probably one of my best ships. I use it quite often
and haven't made any major changes in design for a long time. Tried moving the beam towards
the back to prevent it from getting blown off but it screwed up the layout of the ship.
Recently I've been playing with it more and experimenting with different styles of fighting
for use against cannon ships.
Strengths: Devastating weapon(160 damage per cycle!)
Weaknesses: Overheating, slow and large
Description: This is a really deadly ship. It tears right through targets
very quickly even if they have heavy armor. It's also a big ship though, so most beware of cannons!
Strengths: Good weapons
Weakness: Overheating, power requirements
Description: This was an attempt to make a ship that beam ship that could stand up to cannons
by using ion cannons. I never had to much success with it due to it's tendency to overheat.
There's a possibility I will go through and revamp this ship to make it more effective.
Strengths: Strong against cannons, fast
Weaknesses: Short range weapons
Description: Although ion cannons are short ranged, they have the ability to block incoming fire.
This ship does very well against cannon ships since it can block their shots and even do damage to the other
ship by making them explode to close. It's short range makes it a hard ship to use, though.
Strengths: Very fast fire rate
Weaknesses: Low battery life
Description: Like the ship above, this ship uses all ion cannons. The reserve battery on
this ship allows the ship to use all six ion cannons. The advantage is that you get an
incredibly high fire rate, but the disadvantage is that the fire rate only lasts as long as
your reserve battery does.
Strengths: Most powerful weapon in the game
Weakness: Short range, massive power requirements, overheating
Description: Mega-watt lasers are the most powerful weapon in the game(the most powerful,
not necessarily the best). They do huge amounts of damage but it is hard to hit your
opponents and even harder to keep the beam going for more than a few cycles. This is a
fairly decent mega-watt ship. I have never used this weapon much so you might want to look
elsewhere for good mega-watt designs.
