Sense I prefer to go in front of everone else (I nearly memorized all the missions, to my dismay, and added my own; some are hard as heck) I generally can care less about personal safety; I try to claim kills by hitting a perviously ejected ship.

Yeah, I guess so; Topics tend to wander after a few days

...I got bored today so I thought I chip in a little. I agree with the notion that Drones carry important information in combat. During a battle, generally computers record information concerning the enemy's power, tactics, designs, plans, etc. that would be useful in a real combat situation, and th...

I agree. AI keeps track of everything; that's why once AI spot you, you're toast.

Nah, waves are not that cool; once you're out of missiles, that's it. I think someone already said these, but I'll say it anyway. 1. Docking in Missile Factories to reload 2. Docking in Ship factories to repair 3. (In accordance with number 2) add armor 4. Allow for at least a beam weapon that is we...

Having human wingmen is nice, except when they feel particularly murderous and kills you. But this also brings up a second point; when it comes to having the leader killed, will there be an option of all Wingmen retreating, or will it be a total free for all?

Testing custom ships isn't really so much about cheating as it is about skill: I design my ships like the custom, in teams of four (Upgrading, like Drone, Super Drone, mega Drone, Ultra Drone) and, to keep with the Critical Mass legacy on my computer, make each ship only available to some Races. Aga...

My personal favorite is usually an Eagle or Fear class ship, since I tend to extensively play as Ryckurn. Also Daycorns are useful for scaring the heck out of enemy ships; I can use them to "force-eject" my opponents as so to take out the ships to get medals. Can anyone say what is the best thing ab...

Hmm...

I agree with the entire destroy enemy leader drone (My friend has come to call all weaker enemy leaders drones) and everyone fleeing.

Oh, and before I forget, has anyone been able to play a game that lasted about 500 missions?

Error...

How is it that, um, Firefight experiences a problem and quits for no apparent reason? I seem to be having that kind of problem, where they say that "Firefight has experienced a problem and has to shut down." However, this seem to happen more often if I play the game more often. Is this a graphical e...

Would this work?

I once had a mission where I ended up piloting my Elfire (Weak shields, but decent manuver) through an area of nothing but turrets and ships after I had no missiles left, Hyperspaced with roughly every missile possible behind me (except Yataris) and my ship having a Red Ring. That was kinda fun. Now...

I agree with Steve!'s idea, but I can't help but agree with Legacy here either... If MY wingmen trys to copy me, at my current strength, it'll be a relatively simple mission; I tend to spread Plectrons over a small area, it tends to kill really, really fast; if my wingmen copied me, all of the missi...

Power comes at a price

Frankly, if you have a good ship design, and maybe 4 command centers, good turn, lots of shields, you won't have that much of a problem; one month long game, mission 370, 1500+ kills, five of my best self designs, and a second best design Best Design: SacredFire, Full Super shields, Yatari, Daycorn,...
