I was part of a group that played some bridge v bridge last night. It was great fun, despite the temperature getting raised a couple of times. As far as I'm concerned, that just goes to show that it was a competitive set of games!

I took the liberty of recording some output of some of the games. I need to check it this evening and will then make it available for your viewing pleasure! Watch this space!

Me and Corwin had a couple of great matches later on. The mighty Dreadnaught fell to the Light Cruiser... wish we'd taped that one. As much as I try to help people I try to  keep an ace in the hole if I can. I saw the Dreadnaught speeding in reverse after we nailed them trying to get off a shot, I said to my weapons "their maneuver must be hit". 
 One thing I can say Corwin is a formitable captain!

haha, you had us beat. Even with maenuver at 300%, we just couldnt turn fast enough to keep up! Battleships can still keep up if you have an experienced crew, but dreadnaughts just seem like an impossible match against a light cruiser!

I'll get you next time!

Another reason I like Impulse battle is it reduces the lag immensely. Watching the earlier match I see it pushes the limits of the players. Zipping from impulse to warp 4+, both ships going up and down, then add the engineer trying to keep up with whats needed at those speeds. If at warp beams penetrated and directly damaged engines that might be a solution. Though this is a dangerous zone to be in, having your ship hit with a double or triple mine blast is devastating! I've tested various combinations to see what works, and looking forward to what PvP will offer us. Still learning the variables in 2.0.

Yea, impulse matches are quite fun. Pushes tactics since beams is extremely effective but dangerous and mines are typically hard to get off on an opposing crew. Nukes and emp's rarely break through sheilds on experienced crews as well. It comes down to trying to get in mines and beams but not get mined yourself!
