    Oh boy, glad to see you're SO FUCKING HAPPY that the only person with aethercraft on our ship above, like, fucking master was me and that I had to be pilot because nobody else could, our empath had never empath'd in combat before and isn't using the system we have, only had 52% proficiency, and none of our turrets even had bombard! You're so fucking good! Show us your skills!

    AETHERCRAFT - PURSER

    Module: Empathic Grid
    A purser is able to perform advanced repairs to the ship.

    Syntax: GRID CLARITY <module>
    Clarity will clear several problems on a module, including shock, murkle, and worble.

    Syntax: GRID FLUSH
    Power:  10
    This will flush all modules on the ship of most malfunctions, including shock, sludge, murkle, and
    worble.

    Syntax: GRID REGENERATE <module>
    Power:  5
    Regenerating a module will revive a module that has been completely blown up.


    Evidently you had more than one capable person on the ship! I'm just doing a celebration dance because, yeah, I really am proud to have beaten the bloated ships I see all around that Hallifax hasn't upgraded to.


    EDIT: I also might be highlighting how stupid noncapped hull strength is.

    Also, I'd just barely logged in after a long day of traffic and errands; I was really excited to be able to participate.

    So, your attempt to belittle win = failed

    Attempts left = 0

    I think skills will win over lack of skills anyday. It doesn't really say all that much for your skill when the other team has none. It does show that a monster hull however will not save you without skills I suppose!

    They had at least two people with passable Aethercraft skills -- one was on the chair (lol) and one was on the grid but was inexperienced. There were a million different ways they could've approached assaulting the blockade, e.g. killing off all the ships that didn't have access to pilot roll!

    I'm not going to sit here and defend this, because obviously they were outnumbered and outlessoned,

    the real takeaway is "hey look at how much punishment this ship took while still not imploding (because they didn't implode)".

    It's Karlach's 16k health and health sips/healing scroll/sparkleberries on a much worse scale.

    I have millions more if the hull was not sufficient enough.. >.>;; was a reason I was called a bank before :p

    Eventually it won't. when it becomes neutral there will be a new ship.
