Capturing Stations with Cruisers in General Discussions Posted August 15, 2006 · Report reply quote:Originally posted by Moonbrooke: Ok, I've heard it said that it IS possible to capture a star station with a cruiser, if you can get in it's "blind spot". My question is, what's the proper tecnique to even get CLOSE to the station to reach the blind spot? It starts firing LONG before I am in range, and I'm dead in seconds. Any suggestions? I do it with a cruiser quite a bit. I just hyperjump to the supply station, and fly as fast as i can, right *into* the station, out of it's arcs. Usually my shield holds long enuf for me to get in there. But some stations have either really powerfull turrets or just alot of them and your usually dead before your even outta hyperspace. For those, you gotta hyperjump around and come at them from a different angle.
