What are Command mistakes
Hello everyone,,
I keep reading that Command was stupid in FS 1 and even more in FS2.
While I see that it does mistakes, and often understaff its strike forces, what are according to you Command "blunders" ? I mean - real blunders, being stupid - , not "mistakes" like underestimating a Shivan force by lack of information (in FS and in FS2)

Throwing the Phoenicia out in front of the Sathanas to "stall it". To name one.

Telling the player to fly into the Lucifer's fighterbay.



Like, what did command even expect us to do if we got in undetected?

Storm the Lucifer alone with our sidearm? Take over the ship single-handedly? Blow stuff up the Lucifer isn't supposed to?  :p

Re: What are Command mistakes
...or see how many fighters/bombers Shivans have available or finding some weak points. I think that spaceships can fly through the shields and even a single wing of bombers could deal a lot of damage to a vessel from inside. Definitely more than from the outside, even with shields turned down (thx subspace).

So, a couple from me:
1. Assaulting the Ravana, the most dangerous Shivan destroyer met (except Lucy) with only a mere single wing of bombers and single wing of fighters plus a corvette for distraction. Seriously, the mission is crazy hard on higher difficulties basically for no reason. Or they could have the corvette dirtily use the gigantic beamless spots on the Shivan warship too, even without bomber support.

2. Building the Colossus.

Well they didn't knew that. Not closing it would count. Building one and possibly dooming Sol would too.

Re: What are Command mistakes
Hmm. I found it odd that Kappa and Iota weren't paired together when the Aquitaine started to scout the Nebula. Perhaps if Command let them patrol together, the chance of Kappa going MIA might have dropped a bit.
