I find this lack of posts (or votes) disturbing.

Im fond of -f HE just to see the terror in the eyes of your next door neighbour Twisted Evil

I just thought there would be more than 1.5 votes per day. Razz

My issue with -f HE is that you run out of space too fast. Sad

It's also a holiday weekend here in the US, so those of us who take the occasional gander at the forum during our lunch break, haven't yet had that chance. Smile

Cheers,

Ah, well. Not like it'll fall off the front page here at good old half-dead HWF. Razz

Anyway, I've played hybrid 6% tri-immunes in All Quiet and Tenderfoot. They're alright. They're a little weaker economically than a Fed-like race (by which I mean 0i HG NAS JoaT), but with cheaper tech and no terra costs that's okay. They do feel a little boring, though.

Right now I'm trying to make a fast HE that doesn't burn out, and is playable (ie, no CE, weaps cheap, decent mines, etc). I think I've hit upon something that might work, but I pity the person who tries to actually run it in a game. Puke, hurl, vomit, gag

actually, it's more like the lack of gates is a killer KO for me.

If you do go -f HE in a non-duel game, you'll have a good run till 2450 or so, but post 2450, you really have to think 5 turns ahead and have a good intel system to make sure you don't get flanked or have a marauding enemy fleet going through your system.
Ofc, you can counter it by allying with someone and using his gates, set up at convenient locations.

Hmmm... I think I'll go with -f or as a 2nd choice, low HG.

(ps - why use 2450 as a breakpoint? Simply because you should be dominating the starting phase or 2420-2450 by getting 3 times the area that your neighbor has. If you are having problems in 2435, then no real point playing a -f).



I know my minefields.. but I'm a chaff sweeper.
I used to curse when I got stuck in traffic... till I realised I AM traffic.

With -f HE you're going to have to think 5 turns ahead to build any BBs at all. Razz Puke, hurl, vomit, gag
