    Shielding question.

    The features of the WC Academy ships is great, but you guys made it a point to say the Sivar dreadnought had three times the amount of shielding as a vessel of matching size... Now, my question is, what's the point of all the shielding, when a single locked torpedo will cut through any amount...

    Taking pics in game?

    P/SO ship editer preferences?

    OK. I've visually searched the forum for this topic, and I didn't notice it. If this topic is another dead horse to beat, I'm just gonna stick to posting "LOL :D " in joke threads, cause it's what I do everywhere else. *shrug* I assume it's safe to say most everyone here has...

    Admiral Tolwyn- Madman or military savior?

    As with any controversial military or political figurehead, (even just the fictional ones) Admiral Tolwyn was one of those people with a personality that made you love him or hate him. In the novels, it becomes quite clear that while Bondavereskywhatever somewhat approved of the Admirals...

    Stuff everyone else knows but I don't.

    keep in mind when reading this that my WC experience is limited to beating WC1 and WCSO, and reading the novels once through-each. WCIV focuses on defeating the Black Lance group, and their fighters are called "black lance" and "dragon" Now, Fast forward to Secret Ops, where you fly ships...
