A random battle...that might be more of a challenge.

And here I was hoping to just post one of the KotS matches and call it a day.

Apparently, they never got the note that said sortie costs were fixed

  • It's actually not unusual for the asia server to has more than 90% of the ships still standing at the 10min mark
  • most ships still floating after the 12min and 15min mark aren't unusual
  • Teams don't typically get steamrolled, but they also don't tend to make comebacks
  • If teams do get steamrolled, it's very late in the match
  • It seems to be extremely rare to see all ships on one team getting sunk

In the Asia server, NA is known as the swarm rush server

Which is crazy, because isn't RU typically known to be the most aggressive?  I've heard they make NA look like tame bunnies.

The play style is totally different.

NA typically balls up in a massive push on one cap, while the other side holds the line and kites away.

Asia will fan out in highly defensive positions from the get go and it becomes a match of who has the best aim at long range.

I think RU does the 12 ship death ball, aka lemming train.

Just want to see if it's possible.  Post a replay of a random battle where all 12 players survived past ten minutes and lost.

Ah, there you are, back where you belong lol.

I have seen a few matches get close to 10 minutes before the first kill.

Interesting.  So it sounds like EU and NA are the most balanced then?

It'd be cool to try a few high tier matches on each server just to experience the difference.  The RU thing would be pretty fun to try on a test account that you don't care about.

This GIF is funny when you think about it.  All through the first trilogy, it seemed like stormtroopers couldn't hit the broadside of a barn.  Then when they're asked to hit a jedi on a big lizard at a few hundred meters, all of the sudden, they're able to do it in one shot? Hmmmm.  Something smells fishy here.

Its almost as if the Clones were specifically bred and highly trained as soldiers and Stormtroopers were largely low quality conscripts. :Smile_trollface:

Apparently, Legends Cody was assigned to Kamino as a stormtrooper trainer after the Clone Wars, and absolutely hated it, due to the poor quality of the trainees.

It's speculated he died during Starkiller 2's breakout from Force Unleashed II.

Of course, in canon, nobody knows what became of him.

AFAIK, the stormtroopers are all cloned.

Probably the generations get genetically worse as you go.

That, or they stopped cloning Fett, and cloned the members of the A-Team instead.....

Well, it depends on what you consider to be canon.

In Legends, the Senate decided to transition from a clone army to one of regular recruits after the Kaminoans decided to clone a rebel Clone army, basically modeled after the phase 1 troopers from the start of the Clone Wars. While the revolt was put down, Palpatine decided that a clone army, something derived from a single genetic template, was too susceptible to corruption and thus decided to switch to human recruits.

There is also the fact that in the final year or so of the Clone Wars, Fett clones were supplemented on the battlefield by clones from different sources, most prominently the Spaarti clones from Centax-2. Despite being quite inferior to the Kaminoan clones, they grew much faster and were much more suited for Palpatine's ultimate goal of wiping out the Jedi and ruling a galactic empire (after intervening at the Battle of Coruscant).

In Canon, clone production was stopped after due to the end of the Clone Wars and the fact that they simply weren't enough to keep order in the new Galactic Empire. Regarded as obsolete, they were allowed to die out with little afterthought by the Empire.

The SE Asian thought process...players from at least one region in that area glorifies snipers and vilify everything else in various MMOFPS games...

I can see how that translates to what everyone describes in Ships...
