Highlights

Describe any awesome strokes of luck, feats of skill, or crushing defeats of your CM career. For instance: Earlier today, i was in a Whirlwind on a destroy Starbase mission.

I've now started going for the highest GoldCross% I can get, which I find a lot more entertaining than just trying to live forever. It basically means having to fly really cheap, attack-oriented ships with few wingmen (rather than the best ships I can afford). Can you get Gold Crosses if you fail a...

Large-scale battles

When you're in large dogfights with many different opponents, which strategy is more advantageous/successful? 1) being cautious and taking shots at any opponent who gets in your line of fire so as to survive longer/reduce damage, or 2) being aggressive and hunting down individual ships so as to try ...

There was one instance where i fired an orik directly at a static fuel depot, and it glitched like that and the missile traveled straight through the depot without exploding. anyone know why this is/how to ...
