does the roach always jam 4 c3 ships when it gets its turn? because in the syntax, shouldn't there be a trigger for modify and destroy?

anyway i thought about this ship... it is a bit boring and quite ineffective...

how about exchanging it with the chronoton inverter???

which is really fun and could be used for the same purposes?

what do you think ?

Well I must admit, I am the negative poller. I just dread Roaches.. Being as I cant use them, I am not sure how well they can be used in battle but thinking about it its very devestating. I considered it overpowered really because its hitting FOUR c4 and making them defenseless.. I keep picturing in my mind combining this with a hammer and racking up huge points against a good sized c3 just because they arent able to hit back. Roaches dont cost much for that kind of ability. If I could use them I would prolly consider them as replacements for standard destroyers even at +2 MP a pop. Not to mention they are the bane of Apollos which sucks for me. I already stated I'm all for introducing the c-inverter but I will be conflicted if it would go to the Kazuuulan, naturally.

sure ... the chronots would be for kazuuula, but i think every race should get another ship into the "science recycle methods"- tree

holo generator etc.

When I first saw this i thought it was class 3 but for class 2 it is not balanced.It is ship that cripples any c3 based fleet for only 399 mp.
This needs more drawback ,as it is now there is nothing balancing it iust only 2 mp more than normal destroyer.
At least make it 2-10 or something or even better no AP.
