Title: Zenith mirrors -- why not reflecting?
Post by: orzelek on January 11, 2010, 02:45:30 PM
Hello,

I'm not sure if this is a bug or not:

Should Zenith Mirror ship reflect all the shots that hit it (except missiles) or there is some %-age chance for that?

I have just suicided one mirror against small turret group and from 4 laser turrets there only two got damaged back. And at least 6 laser shots did hit the Zenith Mirror.

Mirrors have a maximum range, and if the thing that shot them is outside their range, they can't fire back.  Since turrets have such huge ranges oftentimes, I am guessing that the turret was simply out of range and thus that is why the mirror did not fire back.

Ok - it would be good if this was written in description since I was puzzled about them for some time.

Also they seem quite weak - unless it's hard to see them in action actually in large battles.

I have added that to the description.  And, don't worry about mirrors being too weak (that I am aware of).  If anything, they are the terror of the expansion, or at least were for some time.  They are less powerful now, but still a formidable unit especially in the midst of battle.  They won't do super well against turrets, though.
