Played ICW this morning, and some Ascendency this evening.  Built a fleet that might have been just a LITTLE bit overkill for the size of the galaxy I was playing on.

Has the imperials ever had the advantage of plot bunnies?  I'm sure they have at some point, but I can't say I can remember any particular instance...

The Lounge / New desktop on the way!!

So, my ancient desktop that's been upgraded a billion times to try to keep it usable finally has a replacement coming.  Saw that the Inspiron 5675 on ebay dropped about $100, so finally picked it up.

AMD Ryzen-7 1700X
8 GB ram (I'll upgrade that to 16 immediately)
1 TB 7200rpm HDD (I'll swap the 960 GB SSD in my existing desktop for that)
8 GB AMD RX580
Windows 10 Home 64-bit

Upgrading from a
AMD FX-8320
32 GB ram
960 GB SSD
2 GB GTX 760
Debian 9 + Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

I had noticed that the GTX 760 was reaching it's limitations in most games.  It just wasn't very smooth at almost anything new, and even in ICW with the lastest updates it was starting to lag pretty awful.  Looking forward to being able to play it smoothly again!!

I would most prefer the EU's plot bunnies.  Indestructible and allows impossible things to happen.

Easiest way to see is to look up his wookiepedia page, then at the bottom under "Appearances".

Discussion, Suggestions & Feedback / Re: Tector VS ISD1 or ISD2?
« on: March 06, 2018, 01:27:38 PM »
ISD-1 and Tectors were contemporaries of each other.  ISD (at the time just ISD) was designed more as a general purpose can do anything ship that's very good at capital ship combat while being able to field fighters and capture enemy ships.

Tector was produced in FAR fewer numbers, and was desinged more as a pure combat vessel that was incapable of functioning independently of a fleet.  While is was significantly more powerful than it's brother in capital ship combat, and had far stronger hull, it was incapable of fielding any starfighter screen, and wasn't as effective at capturing (less Ion cannons) enemies.  Outside of combat, it wasn't really an effective vessel, thereby why it was produced in such smaller numbers.

I support the underdog so that we can have decent performance at a decent price.

The problem with that strategy (for the IR) is that they don't have any carriers that spawn Defenders, which are their only fighters worthy of being the majority of the fleet.  The carriers they have spawn regular Ties for the most part, which while USEFUL when used correctly, cannot every dominate a battle if there's ANY anti-fighter capacity in the opposing fleet.

You've obviously never been hit by Tie Defender spam...

Chewbacca and Darth Maul is a better love story than Twilight.

No, any of them are better than Twilight.

Except it won't be the last.

1.  Empire
2.  RoTJ
3.  RO
4.  ANH
5.  RoTS
6.  TLJ
7.  AoTC
8.  PM
9,999,999,999,999,999,999.  TFA

But with Abrams at the helm and the pile of crud that everything he has ever touched in his entire life has been, that would be more than a miracle.


I watched it on a pirate site, and I have to say:

1.  Glad I didn't spend the money to see this in the theatres.
2.  I can definitely see where some get and to a limited level agree with those that say it's a good sci-fi movie, but have trouble accepting it as Star Wars.
3.  BILLIONS of times better than TFA, but then, watching grass grow was better than TFA.
4.  I personally liked the fact that they finally injected some humor on purpose, I thought it made it much more watchable, even if some was...rough.
5.  Overall, good movie.  Not amazing, but good.  Won't purchase it, won't even probably ever watch it again.  But if I happen to be bored and it's on TV, I won't turn it off in disgust.

I didn't vote because for the most part I hate jedi.  Don't trust anyone who buries their emotions...sure sign of a mass-murderer waiting to happen.

I usually wait until most movies go into the cheapy theatres.  90% of the movies I've seen the last 4 years were $2 for the movie in a theatre.  Don't have any plans on seeing this until it's in the cheapies either after seeing the initial fan reviews.

That's their concussion grenade launcher that doesn't work.

Well, they're better as defensive units IMO because they're so ploddingly slow, but they're the only useful HEAVY unit also in the earlier eras.  The SPMA-T is nearly as capable of putting out as much damage, but they're so slow to deploy that they generally are dead before they have a chance to actually be used.  Whereas as long as some units are around to protect their flanks, then the AT-AT is in an incredibly effective, if ploddingly slow, offensive weapon.

They are, I admit, one of the reasons I dislike playing as the IR until you get XR-85's.  They're incredibly effective, 3 AT-AT's can easily crush almost any defense.  Running forward with 2-M's to distract TL towers and then moving forward with the AT-AT's, they can even destroy the TL towers without taking any damage themselves (although it will cost a couple 2-M's most of the time).  Pretty much, unless you're willing to micro-manage your units, you're stuck relying on AT-AT's to be the heavy firepower, or you'll have to try to set up SPMA-T's and lure units into their range.

Not enough damage?  They outdamage turbolaser towers?  How is there too little damage for the AT-aT?  They're quite literally the 2nd most powerful ground force in the mod (next to the XR-85 tank droid)
