Z Autobomb shenanigans
« on: November 06, 2010, 09:00:08 PM »
okay, so I just acquired the zenith autobombs. I finally had something to spend my research on. I spent it all on them. I immediately made a hoard of autobombs, and sent them to this planet.

why do you throw your lives away?

cuz we're kamikaze's!

I did this a few more times, and It would say that a few more times, then I found that that planet had an Ion cannon mark III on it. I sent in another wave. BOOM! the ion cannon was destroyed completely, with a few autobombs to spare, they wiped out a few of the enemies around them.

did you really expect that to work?

It just did!

then I sent in one last wave (at least before I got bored and decided to post this thread) of autobombs to wipe out another part of that planet, I destroyed a few enemies and a gaurd post.

how stupid do you think we are?

stupid enough to fall for the old kamikaze trick 5 times! OH SNAP!

anyone else get in any shenanigans like this with the autobombs or something else?

I generally just place about 5 or 6 spacedocks on frd loop autobombs pointed in the general direction of the hostile system....

add a couple of engineers for fun, and watch your resources fly out the window!

I just played an autobomb game too  :) 4 spacedocks pumping out

MK I autobomb x1
MK II autobomb x1
MK III autobomb x1

with 2x engineer each on an economy that can handle it is madness lol all that remains in each planet afterward is hordes of AoE immune frigates.

it would be cool if autobombs could ignore FF like other close combat armour types or if they had a little bonus against structures.. it takes a hilarious number of autobombs to take down a special forces gaurdpost lol
