Hmm, it could be a good idea, if your superships have the high power. They could tank, maybe?

ya, frank, that is because you are using them for the added collection of defense.  would you use the 1 mil space ships for there swarm bonus?  I doubt you would.  what you are talking about is more like superships, you are just using many of them. a fleet of superships.  the really big lone ships, normally the really good ones, are more HP boats, not even considered superships.  I don't think a ship classification changes just because the person using it has changed in ranking and power.  a giant looks at an ant, and a person shrunk to the size of a dot looks at an ant, it is STILL an ant.  see my point?  you are using the term "swarmers" as in you have many of them.  I am saying "swarmers" as in they make use of swarm bonus, not necessarily having many of them.

the difference between supserships and swarmers?

superships use high ABS and ACC to get the most out of their stats, since ABS and ACC are NOT taken into account for fleet power

swarmers use swarm bonus that raises their base stats higher then what the fleet power takes into account.

I just thought a more defenite definition of the term "supership" would help in many ways.

Hmm, maby "A ship that focuses more on strength of the individual, then strength of numbers.", could be an alright definition, maby?

(Edit) Not entirely specific though.

We go by size to define ship types, so even a ship with 1 attack and 0 everything else could be a super ship if it is in the right size, just a really bad ship.

And Chronos, I hate to do this, but I'm going to request you take the amazon link out of your signature. It's advertisement for a store, and false advertisement as well, since you're saying it is free. I can't MAKE you do it, since it isn't exactly against ToS, but at least make it obvious that it isn't free stuff, ok?

    Ah....Superships. I used to think Borgs(round 1 winner) ss was unbeatable but then I created the Avenger base design(round 2) and it is still the best, imho.
    Anyway totaly max out space and energy. Also dont buy armor(use special) and dont buy troop pods. Troop pods take more space than they're worth and you get more marines based on the size of your ship. mine held hundreds of billions.

Ok!

And the Amazon thing, it was a joke. You ever see those Free* stuff adds, but they weren't completely free? I was just playing off of that, only it wasn't Free*, it was Free*†‡‡*†*††‡ and led to Amazon.com, which was quite the opposite of free. Just a joke making fun of those ad peoples.

I know, but of course, there will be someone who comes along. sees it, think you meane it, and then get pissed and blame SO for it saying we were falsely advertising (or something like that). Just trying to look out for us.

Okay, I got another question.

What fraction of my energy should I devote to attack if I'm trying to make a good offensive supership?

Is 1/2 good? Or should I raise it to 2/3?

well, you should keep it in ratio to your HP and Defense, but I would say at the utmost extreme, have a ration of 2 HP to 3 attack, anymore and you really start taking stats to much of an extreme for anything other then PvP battles.

Depends though. I spent 2/3 of my energy on HP, but that's cause the swarm bonus is scarier to us smaller people.
