I for my first time got one (thanks to the bug where you can board anything, and the fact it had only 10 components unbuilt when I found it, thanks to the weak AI that had his homeworld only 2 systems away...)

And at first my reaction was: "AWESOME!"

Only to realize that it cannot conquer planets (it has no troops), it cannot explode planets (it has no bombard action), it cannot steal ships (it does not has boarding pods), and its superweapon is ****... I sent it to fight a lonely station, and it damaged the station much faster with its normal weapons (and it still lost and had to jump away to recover shields).

The only thing it did nice, is kill escorts very quickly... but other than that, what is it for? (beside breaking your firepower count and making your AI stop making ships even when you have 300k of positive money influx)

The world destroyer destroy worlds aka planets. They vaporize them. Also, you have to wait it charge.

EDIT:
Just tell him to attack a planet and it should start the countdown.

How much doing this damage your reputation?

Although I am guessing on the game that I have one, this is the only way I can win (the gizureans have the double amount of my colonies, and I have double the amount of the third place... I guess I could vapozire their homeworld :P)

As Spacecadet said, it destroys your reputation. But it's less costly than invading homeworlds, and it's more of a permanent solution.I personally love worlds destroyers.

Generally I try to capture all of them, but I generally park them after that.

I'll destroy them if I have to too keep them out of the hands of my enemies.

Hi Speeder,

You're not using it right. Attack a planet with it and see what happens. That's why it's called a World Destroyer.

Regards,

- Erik

Of course. All of you need the one tech - Super laser. It hidden in galaxy and finding costs a lot of time.

But you own world destroyers can't be such powerful, like original.

There was one guy here who got a cool AAR on how he sent a lot of ships after a single world destroyer and he lost 2 planets before taking it down. His AAR was pretty epic and it was scary seeing one.

Or to put it in a more colorful way: You become the most malevolent being the universe has ever known.

I try to acquire the world destroyers myself, but I have NEVER used them to destroy a planet. Besides, if I go Death Star on a planet, I can't conquer it and strip it of resources.

I think I somehow exploded someone homeworld...

I mean, I left the world destroyer blockading it while I fought the stupid AI trying to make my fleets load troops (for some reason quite frequently the fleet AI decide to just wander around without fuel instead of refueling and loading troops)

After I finally managed to assemble a invasion fleet, I went to seek the enemy planet...

And saw the world destroyer orbiting a empty space, no planet.

Wtf?

I am thinking world destroyers can kill planets by accident...

By the way, on my game late-game I ended scrapping my world destroyer, there is a way to refit it? (ie: use its incredible build size, but ditch the world-cannon and put in place some more useful stuff, like troops...)
