There should be a way to win, clearly. Nobody's arguing against that. I don't believe that the sole means of beating them should involve holding down the fire key for an excessive amount of time while facing no risk of retaliation, however.

Definitely going to try to see whether jumpdrives can be added to the things as my next project.

You guys do remember that the Iocrym will 'hunt the player once it destroys everything else?

but you are correct that the ships on a mission to attack, like every other ship in game won't really defend itself effectively against a defense.

However - if they had escorts ... then you could be talking some challenge to stop the lead ship.

English is so confusing : Lead, lead or led ? LOL

Lead ( plumbum ) = "Liquid Silver", Image or Image


Lead = charge ahead, as in first, or navigate ahead of others

Led is just plain wrong because you can't "ran and led" at the same time because it's past tents and you wake people up !!
:) LOL

Happy Saturday :)

What's with the colors and pictures xD
My dream is to one day discover that someone who plays transcendence lives near me and goes to my school. Then I can finally have a friend.
