Did you have CnC ships? They are vital.
Many who found the battles a bit shallow never got to Cruisers and CnC. This is when
it becomes a different ball game altogether.
Probably not, since I was playing the demo. How do CnC ships and Cruisers change things?
Mine Laying for instance.
How about using Asteroids as weapons?
Using the "geography" to your advantage, like hiding behind asteroids and moons.
That certainly sounds a lot more interesting than what I remember. This is one of the problems with demos, which I myself am guilty of as a gamer - I gave it a quick look, it didn't grab me and I moved on. Had I bought the game, I probably would have persisted and found it to be a lot better than my first demo impression.
Personally I found this combat more indepht than say Starfleet Command or any other space strategy game to date.
I loved the Starfleet Command series, so that's saying a lot for me. Can you manage power and fire individual weapon groups when you want in the latest versions of SotS?
