Why do I always end up on the attacking side in Space battles?

Defend mode is the best.  I just sit in spawn and read my phone.  Look up once in a while to blap broadsiding cruisers out of existence then look at my phone for the next few min while they make their way back for round 2

No, the Defenders are other players. The bots you wronged in the past are getting revenge by tweaking your MM. :Smile_glasses: :Smile_teethhappy:

8 or so games all attacker, 1 win. 

I'll never complain about Epicenter ever again. 

They make this mode the norm I want an option to opt out of it.

tell your team (and yourself?) not to camp and that they should yolo because you have infinite respawns and not infinite time.

1st rule of thumb...when attacking ignore the enemy ships if you even have a slight chance of attacking the generators...they are your only concern. So many times (on PT haven't played yet on regular) I have watched ships locked on a target & all they needed to do was take a few seconds to launch torps & the generator would have been an easy kill & they just keep duking it out w/the defenders...that just keep getting stronger & stronger (faster reloads & faster HP regeneration) the more of them you take out.

Take a DD or the Mino & stealth in & concentrate the generators & it's not hard to win on attack as it may seem...although defending is definitely much easier.

I once was a defender, then the dark side.

I have played 7 and have been defending in 6 of them.

My only attack team had an afk ship and we lost.

Opposite issue for me.  9 games yesterday, only the first was attacker, every other was defender.

Yeah I actually think I ended up with about an equal split between Attack and defend..  Like the game mode.  In the first game it was pure stomp over the defenders.  Wiped them out in 5 minutes.

After that mostly the defenders won, except when I was on defense, hmm correlation between winning and losing? hmm,  and we got smoked bad one game and the other came down to a couple of BB's duking it out.  lost that one also but it was closer.

Honestly still trying to figure out how to play on either side.  

Different though that's for sure.

Key to winning as an attacker is to kill defenders as fast as possible, they dont respawn.  This whittles down their ability to protect the generators. Also if a generator (not blocked) is in range you should shoot it with AP.  That is unless a defender is giving you the chance to delete them (which helps your team).

Generators can be torped, so can the city objective.

For defenders, stay back and focus fire.  The attackers respawn but if you can delete them as they approach it makes it difficult to get the the generators.  They need to kill all the generators (something I didnt get my first game) before they can attack the last objective.  They are on a clock you arent.  Also the defenders heal automatically.  If hurt, go dark for a bit
