A random battle...

A home for tales of personal killcounts and engagements between vast armadas, as well as the odd recounting of that time you saw an alien capship taking out a mining base while trying to parallel park.

A random battle...

Postby Laraso » Mon Jun 08, 2009 2:36 pm

I was flying to a wormhole, just about to jump, there is 5 Dodo's flying aimlessly around the wormhole. All of a sudden, I notice on my radar thousands of red dots. I turn around and see a squad of about 60 - 70 Satre's flying by, as soon as they get to the wormhole they stop... And then tear apart the Dodo's with a heavy rain of lasers! :shock: Then I see a squad of Dodo's come in trying to tractor the Satre's, but they are obliterated. Then I see some armed Entourages fly in to avenge their fellow Dodo's, and a huge battle breaks out. I am in the middle of thousands of lasers, and my ship gets torn to pieces. All I can do is sit in my pathetic eject pod and watch as they destroy eachother. The Entourages don't stand a chance against the Satre's teamwork, as they focus all of their firepower on one target until it is destroyed, then focus all their firepower on the next target until it gets destroyed, ect. I see explosions everywhere, and as the last Entourage gets destroyed, the Satre's regroup and head back to wherever they came from. So I selfdestruct and start over, because I don't feel like going through the docking process in an eject pod. This seemed like the most appropriate forum to post this ridiculous battle. :mrgreen:

Sounds like a couple of the furballs we had when we where testing before release :mrgreen: there where usually hundreds of ships in each system 20 aera Nicanders on my tail of my derivative managed to take out several before they got though my armour :)

Yah, they are, but these ones were armed, strangely. :shock: I didn't even think they were Entourages when I first saw them, mainly because of the fact that they were shooting lasers. :lol:

wth I can't see a thing! oh wait... I didn't realize how damn dark my brightness, contrast and gamma settings all are! I have to set them lowest or my eyes bleed (seriously, I'm photosensitive :| ). However... they do seem to be too small :lol:, still nice war event.
