Re: favourite canon fighters.
I noticed that when the velocity indicator used to be active, like by a few pixels to the right.

Re: favourite canon fighters.
QD also said the FS1 reticle was more accurate, as were the crosshairs in WiH.

Re: favourite canon fighters.
Yeah, I figured cause it's slow, but even with it's enhanced shields and strong hull, flying it just makes you too much of a target. I prefer the Erinyes for heavy assault roles.
I'd still take the Ares for de-turreting and stuff like that. After all, the Ares can take 24 trebs, which is way more than Eri. The Eri can take like 10, which just isn't enough in some cases.

11 Trebuchets, five on the first bank and six on the second.

The Ares is also one of the few fighters capable of engaging a Nephilim/Seraphim head-on (by accident, no less) with dual Kayser banks and survive without being mangled badly for the rest of the mission.

Re: favourite canon fighters.
They should only be used if you want to prove how badass you are:
-beat the game on insane (with fury AI), using only Prom R's (if available)
-order all wingmen to depart immediately
-no secondaries
Have anyone achieve that? , I see it impossible xD
Let's play Blue Planet

I don't see it as doable either..

Re: favourite canon fighters.
I'm barely scraping by with insane retail AI and only having the Subach, Morning Star, Tempest, Rockeye and EMP missile available...for some reason I couldn't use the Harpoon anymore after I failed Into the Maelstrom once.

Subach x Tempest I say. A golden combination throughout the campaign.
"Ka-BOOOOOOOOM!!!!"

Destiny, if weapons are magically unavailable, I bet you've corrupted your pilot file. Create a new pilot or play from the tech room.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

It's a new retail campaign run, so nay! I've come so far to the nebula, restarting from scratch would really suck. If I complete the campaign on retail Insane with Subach-Tempest, I'll have an ego boost before deleting the pilot file if the corruption remains.

Re: favourite canon fighters.
I can never hit anything in an Ares, period. I hate that ship.

good now we finally have a complaint from DarthWank ("cough") I mean...DarthWang


As Unknown Target mentions below, flagrant insulting of other members is not strictly appreciated. However, as the party offended against is not showing any signs of taking it as a malicious action, I'm simply going to place a caution here. --Zacam

With the rapid increase of FS fan-made campaigns, we're giving the GTVA a harder time with more violence and genocide.

Don't insult someone again in this thread.

 
Re: favourite canon fighters.
Insult me all you want!


All in fun and jest, but it's a mixed signal we don't need to be sending. We can all be polite and leave the *nudge nudge* jabs to IRC or PM's.
Especially don't try and incite someone to actions they are being warned against please. --Zacam

Now it really sounds like pilot corruption.

Yeah... you wouldn't want to suddenly not be able to continue due to those kind of problems.

Ah well if it was a joke, my apologies. I got a moderator report on the post, which is why I warned Marcov.
