Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Thanks for the run, maybe we can get to see more CD on DVD than a YouTube trailer. Good Luck.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Agreed, don't get too bogged down in details unless David says to, most people do consider rail/gauss/coil guns to be the same thing and they are variations on magnetic linear acceleration. In general, linear accelerators do have a theoretical problem, especially over long range: if the enemy can de...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I'm still waiting to see what the Admiral pulls out of her hat. "Run Away" would be a most unsatisfying option. Hmmm, the kamikaze by a destroyer into one of the UTC ships might be interesting... Either way it turns out.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

How many ships are there? Best guess is the Cirin have 10, with a Sparrow, two Daimyos, another cruiser sized ship, two of those tall & skinny ships and four small ships. Looking through the various pages I'm getting a count of about 4 Republic and 3 UTC, right? It also looks like at least five of t...

Re: Important Announcement!

Congrats. I hate to see CD go, but if it helped get you your job, then more power to you. Once you get settled and can do some "piddling", why not set up the current battle sequence (without the Nioboids since they would be a distraction) as a short? That would be a lot of fun to see and if someone ...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Hmmm, I'm not great on ship identification for this universe, but in the last few pages I seem to be seeing at least 10 ships out there vectoring in with 5-6 directly firing on the Milowka. Now, unless the CA is calling something else a "Destroyer" rather than a BB or CL, we just had a blunder by Ad...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Yep, Cannae in the making. The reason for targeting the Destroyers (or other escort vessels that seem to be hanging back some) is that they are doing the screening for the heavies charging towards the center PLUS they are easier to kill and will degrade anti-fighter defenses fairly quickly (if the C...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Unless there is a different perspective I'm missing, I'll bet "inverted shield formation" means advancing on the "rim" as a prep to attempting to englobe the enemy. First, a setup to make the Dar/UTC think that the CA wants to sit and wait in a defensive stance, like maybe they want to be able to ru...
