How to Build a Fleet – Basic Tips 10

Top of the morning! Building a good fleet is one of the most important skills in this game and one that is tough to pick up on your own. As I write this, there are 50 hulls, 114 weapons, 44 armours and 103 specials currently in the game. That’s a lot of options. Luckily, there’s ...

Lightning Fall Points Chart 16

Top of the morning! Here’s a quick table I threw together that shows how many points each level of Operations Hub and Typhoon gives, plus the number of them you’d need to hit in order to get to each tier of prizes.   This is mostly just to use as a reference so you can ...

Base Design As of January 17, 2013 20

Top of the morning! It’s been a hectic few weeks and doesn’t seem to be slowing down. I know I’m way behind on my Hull Blueprint Analyses but something a little more urgent has come up. But that’s juicy news for another post. Today, I’m going to give you guys something else you’ve been asking ...

So Popular, We Broke the Server

Top of the morning! OK, we didn’t really break the server, we just exceeded my allowed CPU usage and they pulled the plug. To be honest, I wasn’t even aware that I had a CPU limit with my host but I suppose I shouldn’t be too surprised, considering it was free. While I probably could ...

Top of the morning! With Lightning Raid having come to a close and many players having a lot of shiny new hulls to play with, I’ve decided to do a detailed analysis of all the prize hulls to help you decide which ones to get and how to use them. Because of the sheer number ...

Lightning Raid – Soloing Level 65 Hubs 6

Top of the morning! Just thought I’d post a video of my strategy for soloing level 65 Operations Hubs during Lightning Raid. Since my blitz Dreads really weren’t working too well (no HB3 means I was taking a TON of rocket fire and far more damage than necessary), I needed something else. Unfortunately, my only ...

Tips for Operations Hubs 20

Top of the morning! We have another event on the way, Lightning Raid, that looks to be solely about destroying Operations Hubs. From the teaser information, these will not be the same as what we faced in the last event. MagicSarap has stated that there are no plans to include Typhoons in this raid, so there ...

Dread X Defense Tips 11

Top of the morning! With the introduction of the new Base Planner, I’ve been able to try out one of the designs I’ve been monkeying with in Base Doctor. So far, it seems rather successful against the Dread X, despite not having an ideal guard fleet in place yet. While not perfect, I’m going to ...

Keyboard Macros – Control Your Ships With A Single Button Press 44

Top of the morning! One thing a lot of people ask about is, how do you move all your ships at once? Well, the answer is we aren’t, really. We’re just pressing the arrow keys really quickly between mouse clicks in an effort to send the move command to all five ships as quickly as ...

Storm Force Strategies 4

Top of the morning! I’d like to apologize for the lack of new posts lately. Life has been quite busy for me of late and things don’t look like they’ll be slowing down anytime soon. In fact, I’ll barely have 12 hours to play the event this weekend so I won’t be able to make ...
