Rubens: oh yeah this ship wth a major and a class 2 fleet soun good but iknow that have smething wrong but what?
darklim: This ship will Self Destruct, so the Major Reconstructor don't work with it
Rubens: why the reconstructors ships doesn´t reconstruct the ship with a self-destruction system?
Tofu: Are those battledrones put at the end of your class 3 ships or are the shuffled?
Is the "shuffle"-command integrated in the "create"-command?
We are Bjork: I think they come after the cluster
not shuffled
Tofu: If i use a cluster-cruiser and 10 cruisers and, lets say, the cluster-cruiser fights first. Who fights second, a cruiser, a battledrone or is it random?
If the battledrones are put at the end of your class 3 ships, they are completely useless to protect your ships.
We are Bjork: No, they do protect your ships, but, the drones can be removed easily by a shock wave cruiser for instance.
spacetrace: if a ship is created during battle it will be added (if it is added in the same class) right behind the creator-ship.
soo a shuffle would make the cluster cruiser less effective.

Gotsex: Why would anyone use a ship that does 10 damage put self destruct and you lose 40 mp? am i reading this correctly? does the cruser sd or just the drones?
kamekaze6: the drones are good as they would draw away the firepower of ships such as cruisers and plasma gunships, but i would not suggest it s use vs lower classes unless i was ur enemy
Cloudgatherer: Hate to ask something that is probably obvious BUT for clarity's sake I will noob it up:
Does the Cluster-Cruiser self destruct or is it the battle drones it deploys that self destruct?
admin: both: the cluster cruiser immediately selfdestructs (sd) and the battle drones destroy each other at the end of each subbattle of your class 3
