swarmers are definately for the rich and i personally think the best swarmers are small and cheap. not giving a way to much info. but id say less than 100 hull size and 10k per ship. (that right there is like the way overdoing it, too me ;) ) Swarmers, in my opinion, defensive ships(SO WARS) and suck major B@lls when used in missons... so yeah dont use them for that. also the smaller the ship the more swarm bonus you get.

any ship below 15 hull is counted as 15 hull as far as swarm bonuses go

thats where you are wrong swarmers are sum wat for defence and "big ships" are for attack. youll save more money that way. also that may be why you are poor ;)

actually, you may think you are designing them right, but they might end up being super inefficient... while with super ships there is on basic way to desgin them.

lol, i like the trainee fighter you are given, i am gathering swarmers for defence, and i also use supership for attack, but i am not sure the best design for a swarmer, so i stick with the fighters, if any one can point me in the right direction i would be very grateful

Well, cheap + high fleet count + defense won't help you much, because higher fleet count => higher fleet power => higher attack against you on PvE*. Defense is just so frikken expensive, if you account for swarm bonus of 10x, it's still more expensive than hp by 5x, and that's withoout the 10fold advantage of max abs.


*Just reminding you that outnumbering PvE should take back seat to outperforming the randoms.

I am trying to figure out how to design a swarmer.

So please, how to design a swarmer with 100 hull size with less than 10K budget?

Can anyone help?

First and ForeMost its late... im tired... and im skimming through all the posts... someone asked about some swarm bonuses and effects and i almost dont even want to let out any information because it will make the competition that much stronger... thats what alliances are for...

...

also use pships... ur fp will be so low per ship that pships will be rather cheap youll find and will be helpful when ppl attack... use 10 fleets so they cant touch ur main swarm no matter what... do this for a year and when ur to lvl 2000 encyrpt then i guess your FP will reflect almost total power in your swarm.... and you may not have the best swarm but anyone near your power wont be able to touch you.... =]

Still id rather go supership til i hit quadrillions 16 afterall 95% evasion... ill still hit you 16 might take 20 tries but eh ill get ya 16

Can someone please tell me what a PSHIP is?
