Gammulan military ship of choice

Recommended Posts

Since I'm a transport pilot...supplying the front lines, Either a LRT-15 for an unarmed transport, and for an armed transport, a Jenstar, since it has a good combination of speed, cargo capacity(I hope the appendix is still accurate), and defense. That and 10 marines are good to keep unwanted intruders at bay.

And what I find weird is that the appendix says that the LRT-10 has more cargo capacity, when the LRT-15 is alot bigger...odd

I fly a fully stocked and customized Stormcarrier, and of course my escorts will be stormcarriers and some smaller more maneuverable ships. THe diplomacy fleet is just that, a fleet, and we will combine the ships to the best combination to bring the most firepower, maneuverability and overwhelming force to bear upon our enemies.

We will be an unstoppable force of such dimensions that the galaxy will be terrified whenever our names are mentioned.

I'm sorry, what was the question?

Oh yeah, I fly a Stormcarrier!!

1700th post, RIGHT ON!!!

Barring a shortage of available ship, I like to protect the homeworlds in a Stormcarrier.

As shown in my sig, I prefer the Sunflash for a combo of speed and firepower and when the going gets tough, my speedy hyperdrive can get me out of the toughest firefights. Great as a fast transport as well.

Who invited you into this thread?

And we not only have incredible numbers, we have excellent command abilities and structure.

We will be a devastating force in BCM MP, but that is our job. SC created us, and we aim to please. We will be your nightmare, and that is just the way he wants it!!

So many Stormcarriers. Greatest thing about them is when an enemy ship drops out of hyperdrive, the Stormcarrier's fighters blow the target to bits before the target's engines even re-materialize. Yeah, Dragon Lady's right, I fly a Stormcarrier.

Am I reading the multiplayer features right or did the Stormcarrier get a little less scary since support craft deployment will not be a part of multiplayer for BCM or BCM Gold (and may not be a part of BCG MP either)?

Anybody rethinking their ship choices based on those listed features or am I not reading them right?

AHH! I really hope you aren't reading them right...someone, please tell me he isn't reading them right...I remember reading that, but I don't remember making the connection...the SC wouldn't NOT let us deploy FIGHTERS, would he? Would he?!? Someone, please, tell me it isn't so! TELL ME!!!!! *screams*

With cruiser and other support craft escort the Stormcarrier will still be a real badboy to deal with in MP.

As of right now, the official word (though subject to change) is that there will be no troop, probe, support craft, or mining drone deployment in MP until BCG. There will also be no tractor beams until BCG, and no use of OTS weapons until BCM Gold. Complete details of what will be available in BC MP games up until BCG is available publicly on the newly opened battlecruiser.net site. You can find the FAQ here, complete with a table of projected features for each release in comparison to each other.

So, yes, carriers in BCM and BCM Gold MP will be sluggish overweight cruisers for the most part.

Yea, but they will be sluggish overweight cruisers with cloaking devices. Cloaking devices are fun


Haha... true enough.

My personal opinion is that I don't mind the lack of support craft deployment. Really, in a way it kind of defeats the point of multiplayer if everyone just sends waves of AI fighters to fight for them.
