Dummy or not dummy: that is the question.

Out of mere curiosity, do you happen to select/are you used to selecting dummy ships to complete your squadron (viz. nearly zero cost ships that can easily be sacrificed) so as to draw ennemy ships/missils away from you right from the beginning of the mission (kind of decoy ducks, you know).
If so, how do you design them? How many of them do you use?

(example: 1 rear engine + 1 side engine + 1 command center = cost 10)

no, but u do need at least one block of missiles. i dont even know if they would even do much. well, i do usually have some ships that have no stealth but can still fight that get spotted quickly.

EDIT: i just noticed there were two of these topics. people talk about double posting, but i've never encountered this before

Well, actually yes... I'm puzzled why. :shock: :shock: Can't figure out how it happened (during the days that followed my initial posting, there was only one!!). Kind of a mystery, indeed. :!:
