Re: Game Tactics

Here is another rather nasty tactic I have recently seen being used. It's a varient on a fleet catch. Essentially what you do is you launch a fake attack on a top planet. That's right a fake attack, and you land it. When it is eta 1 or 2 to target you check out the defense, find the defender you want to fleet catch, and then arrange a fleet catch knowning when his fleet will be returning. This allows a big zik, or a battle group to hand pick whom they will fleet catch, and exactly which fleets the zik will steal. It's a rather nasty tactic.
Counter: two counters, do a fleet scan of all incomming, if it's listed as a fake attack, don't find defense. Other counter is just to find the defense needed to stop the fleet catch, which can be rather difficult.
Counter-Counter: Send the attack for real, and simply pull at the last possible second. FA won't be able to tell you anything then.
