So what I was thinking about was a design with 2 slots or Arms.
This will make them fully gateable, and as others build mostly Omegas, and mostly 3 slots, I will be lighter and with the higher range I will have 2 shots before they are in range (with 1 slot less in missles I have 1 more slot for comps).
(making much use of any/any/disengage orders)
Obviously, this is no longer relevant to the game he was playing, but just some PSAs about this:
- a nubian with 6 armageddon missiles will always take losses when gated (you can get 6 omegas on while keeping to the 318kT limit if your engines are light enough, but nubian (100) + 6 missiles (210) + 3 engines (minimum 12) is already a minimum of 322kT without counting the other components)
- a ship with omegas and speed 2.25+ (and most omega nubians have speed 2.5 to escape from AMP nubs anyway) can get the entire battleboard in range on round 1, so it is only possible to get a free shot if their battle orders permit it (which they sometimes will, but sometimes won't).
