Ill start off by stateing that ive only play'd the demo for a couple of hours and dont have an exact understanding. still getting use to the new menu and other new stuff. but one of the things that i like to look at is the ships stats attack armor speed.
and ive noticed that the flack frigate which i thought would be similer to the assult frigate has upgrd lv1 has attack 50 armor 20800
and the gunship witch builds a squadron of 3 there stats attack56 armor 1560 lv1 upgrd
which appers to make the flack frigate uselyss when you compare its firepower to that of the gunship. Assumeing stats are each individual ship and not an acumilation of the squadron of gunships. and considering they perform same purpuse ant fighter ant corvete. I hope that this is not the finale for the flack frigate and hope that it will be upgrade with forward fireing plasma launcers or one or two plasma turrets, or maybe missle launchers. I think it should have more of a capship kill capebility maybe attack of 100 to 200. It just dosent look like theres much point to makeing flack frigates that do 50 damage when you could have 3 gunships that do 56 attack, and performs the same job.
I dont want to come off as negative because i really like what ive seen so far. and am definetly going to get the game.
