Especially because you dn't know what i have or i haven't done.
Maybe i didn't played the game oon very extra mega ultra hard, but i have enough experience in Multi-player to say that with the right weapons with one or two passes i can rip apart an aeolus.
Obviously, in the single player campaign, everything is more deadly in multiplayer because you don't have respawn, but i can assure you that the aoelus still have the same firepower.

Didn't mean to attack your person I just feel offended when peepz bad mouth the Aeolus   Its the best Cruiser in the bloody GTVA. If u play it on anything above Easy An Aeolus will kick your a$$. There is no dodging flak buddy! and Dodging AAAF is very difficult but dooable kinda, but the flak does the most damage.

We'll probably release one or two of them as a separate mod before the campaign is released, but I can't promise anything right now...

Sorry Akira, but people are entitled to their opinion, and you can't make an assumption based on your own piloting skills as to everyone else's. I for one can take down an Aeolus on my own, with some time and a Subach. You can learn to dodge flak, you just have to be economic with your shields.

Not for me. If u play it on anything above Easy An Aeolus will kick your a$$. I didn't say that's a **** . I said that's something more dangerous. ANd I Haven't played the game only in Very Easy.   There is no dodging flak buddy! True, There's no dodging. But the Flaks haven't a very long range. With the right equipment you can do something very bad on that ship. and Dodging AAAF is very difficult Very difficult? I usually dodged AAAF with my Erynes and also with slower ships. Yes, in a bomber it's another thing... but dooable kinda, but the flak does the most damage.

Well, probably yes.

The Aeolus is small, fast, and one mean little package.
The first time I saw it in the Freespace2 demo before buying the game, I was floored. The thing took down half a Shivan corvette (while under heavy bomber/beam fire) before succumbing.
Then the Psamtik came and tore the heart out of the Balam, but that's another story.

Yes, but remember that a small and fast fighter is much different from a slow and big cap-ship.

Yah I do that pump all your shields to the forward section thing too, but usually there are enemy fighters buzzing around and firing on you and sometimes its hard to avoid AAAF when you're flying straight at an Aeolus on an attack run, I can take out an aeolus by myself too, but what i'm trying to say is that its one potent little ship.

I've never said that the Aeolus isn't a good ship. Infacti i like it very much.
And when i attack an Aeolus i prefer to take some power from the weapon system and give it to the engine system, so you can dodge flaks (that aren't seeking, so when they're fired they aim at your last position) and AAAF and fire (usually) the thumb-fire missiles (Agh! Forgot their name!). About the shields, I prefer keeping them up in all the 4 directions, cause if you're hit by a flak cannon, it damages from every direction.

Some people still didn´t get it right. The Aeolus is not going to use these beams. They are TA beams. Styxx used the Aeolus just for testing purposes. And there are several versions of the Electrobeams (something like 7 different versions, I think)
Here comes my sig... oh finished :D

I got it. The problem is that now the discussion changed subject that isn't anymore the electrobeam but the aeolus itself! =)
