Re: Round 56 shipsstats

I feel like all races have decent options available, so it's a decent start. At least all races can fire at all classes, so that puts these stats in the top percentile already...

As Ter, I'd probably go Harpy + De, to ensure no one will roid you after tick 700. War Frigate or Pegasus + Syren + Bs is another option, but being unable to defend against Fi and Co is annoying from an alliance perspective. Phoenix could do it, but the high init makes me uncomfortable.

As Cat, start with a pure Co XP fest, then move to dual classing Co/Cr + Scorpion after TT-4 and some HCT. Cr rushing looks viable as ever as well.

Xan is a little odd. In theory there's the Fr fort play, but you need 2 additional ships to close all holes. Unless you're going for Siege early on (always painful for Xan), both of those ships will be in the Fi roiding fleet. Basically whatever you do you'll end up with 2 roiding fleets, which isn't very forty. Works well offensively, though.

Zik has 2 options. Sair or Pillager + De or Cutlass + Buccaneer + Cr. You could also go completely nuts and run with a Fi/Co fleet with some stolen Cat Co and Xan Fi. Add Buccaneer and you only need to build 3 ships to fully cover all classes. Horrific without Cat Co support, pray your Sairs never steal anything, and you'll get plenty of incs, though.

Etd Fr has the same issue as Xan Fr. Forty but not quite forty enough to be worth it, except this time you don't even get a second roiding fleet out of it. Lancer + Paladin + BS looks more solid, in my opinion. Beyond that there's some nice possible steals into Co and De where there's plenty of flak available, which allows clever faking for those who are able.


Fr, De and Fr/De forting all look good as an ally strat, as does Xan/Cat (with some Ziks who want to try some Fi/Co stealing). The high ETA of Cr/Bs is always problematic, but Ter/Cat/Zik dual classing seems viable.
