    Nomad ship in New York

    Post by [Order]-niar on Sat Nov 20, 2010 12:19 pm

    This time, it's the real deal.
    It appeared in the new liberty space, near the norkfold shipyard, and it was a real squid-like ship. I engaged him as soon as I saw the red sign on the radar.
    The player flying it is NO_MAD(actually took a while to understand the name x). Unfortunately, I had no time scanning his ship, but I'm sure he has some anti-shield missile, plus nomad weapons (don't know what class though).
    The worst thing is, it has an invisible mechanism, so the ship can disappear from the radar; I was shot down while writing, thinking the player had logged off-.-
    Fortunately, I hired the assistance of an SSI member, Einar, and he, plus my friend Taigore, was able to shot down the ship, sending the alien back to where he came.
    Altought it's hard to admit, I don't think I could have won even if he didn't play that dirty trick, so it would be helpfull to get someone to train with. Be careful out there

    The anti-ship missile is acually just a Nomad Cruise Disruptor. It registers as a missile, however, in the ingame alerts. Nomad ships are classified as combat interceptors but they have a higher thruster output. Their weapons damage rivals a FAF with 4 codes and 2 SKS, and by rivals I mean surpasses by a fair amount. The trick to fighting them, and this might be easier to show, is to take advantage of the protection your shield affords you. Use missiles and mines when your shield is up. Using a CD right before a missile can work wonders as the CD will slow the ship down if it's in ekill letting the missile hit it easier. If you time it poorly however, you'll end up detonating your own missile with the CD.

    Remember if you feel like your back is against the wall theres no shame in enlisting the neighboring NPC patrols to back you up. Most nomad players are smart and cunning (HyperLethal Nomad Strain) but this particular NO_MAD is not quite up to that HyperLethal Level. Still if this talking squid is leaving the gooey safe lair in Alaska to attack NY, we NO_MAD is growing a bigger 'pair'.
