SCASSSS - iHub Bash

Welcome to the third Sand Cider and Spaceships Special Sunday Short - The Heydieles iHub Bash.

Basically for those that don't know, in order to capture a system in faction war you have to run plex until the system becomes vulnerable. Each plex captured is around about 0.6-0.8%, so you need to do 150ish plex to get the system vulnerable +1 for each plex the other side captures. The average time to close a plex if you are not disturbed is 15 minutes ish (Novice 10, Small 15, Medium 20). So that is 40 hours of orbiting buttons for one system roughly if nobody defends! You looking forward to this TEST? That is a lot of doing nothing if you are going to push for tier 5 and need most of the 101 systems. Mmmmmmm?

Anyway when you get a system vulnerable... it is time to FIRE! I don't recommend using a stealth bomber unless you are epically hungover and cannot be bothered with the hassle of getting a DPS boat there and back. In my defence I did use faction torps so the DPS wasn't that bad!

  1. Stealth bombers give you some tactical flexibility against a a counter fleet. Personally, I don't like it. It's like beating metal with a scalpel. I prefer a battering ram fit Oracle.

    Really need to finish that Strategikon post.
