Dealing with Perservation Wardens and Hybrid Enclaves
« on: August 23, 2010, 06:00:51 AM »
I just recently tried a game with two Neinzul AIs, and the new minor factions. As well as Hybrids (+Advanced) on on of the AIs.

The AI in itself is as expected, but the Hybribs like attacking me. Luckily I managed to find an efficient defence from them with a few Beam turrets + grav turrets. Also forts :).

The Perservation warden howwever, presents another challenge. They spawn all the time, and a lot of them (must be at least 10 of them at any given time if not more, I do not have total scout covarage of all the planets teh waves come from), and keep bombarding my worlds constantly. Luckil my main defence with the beams and gravs shread em to pieces, but on my outlying colonies demands more attention constantly.

Currently I use a detatchment of Zenith Beam frigates to deal with em, the AOE beams work well in that respect, but I would also like to have my beam frigates with my main fleet on occation.

So I am wonderng what tactics you use to deal with these waves? (one grav turrets and a few tractors gets shredded instntly by tem as well btw ^^).

I'm still only first game with the Wardens enabled.

After losing an ion cannon to them, I unlocked fortresses and never looked back.

Seriously, I get the "Wardens attacking system X" message, I don't even bother changing my view to that system if it has a fortress in it.

That's how effective they are against them.

Having gone and unlocked Mk II fortresses, I don't have any border systems without a fortress now so I haven't tried anything else.
