Dire Guardians in Exo waves
« on: June 29, 2013, 01:32:17 AM »
Do dire guardians that spawn as part of exogalactic strike forces count as massive ships?

Last wave I was fighting, it appeared that they did not. They're certainly more massive, and more dangerous,
than spire craft, which do count as massive ships.

to be fair, the new regular guardians are more powerful than the combat spirecraft

So are many starships.  The "Massive ships" thing should probably be disabled until the superweapons rework.  Either that or made to only count golems, dire guardians, H/Ks and motherships.

Yea. The "massive ships" flag thing is just confusing, and frankley, always has been ever sense exo waves were introduced. It only counts wave "leaders" (which might or might not actually be "massive"; it is allowed for starships or even fleetships to be an exo-subfleet's "leader", even though this almost never happens unless exo-budget was pretty low), and even then, it sometimes seems to be inconsistent with that. At least the strength display it has seems to be about right.

Another thing on the fix/rework/rebalance superweapon list it would seem.
May the Force be with you.

And the Triforce too.  :D
