Took it down to 63%. On Very Easy. Of course, for some odd reason the Raynor wasn't firing its beams.
That's because you're on Very Easy -- it makes friendly capital ships weak as well as enemies.
The infrequent beam firing might have been due to a SEXP problem or (in-story) due to dissent amongst the Orestes' gunnery crews.
Yeah, playing through the mission on Insane, the Renjian did about 11% damage -- but, on the other hand, it didn't have railguns, which the Karuna types in WiH will. So yes, SpardaSon, I think we can anticipate some awesome stuff from those ships.
Despite what I was saying in the other thread about the two factions being pretty fairly balanced, and the GTVA having a slight edge with the beams, I really love the UEF ships, and I think their gritty missiles-and-railguns feel is really appealing.
