The new poll asks which capital ships are your favorite to attack. We've narrowed down the results to just the "bad guys," and just some of the more notorious ones from key games. There's a wide range of strike missions represented by these choices. Are you more into torpedo runs under intense flak? Hitting picket ships in your Tarsus on the frontier? Dropping a flashpak on a flight deck? Defanging the beast? Or teaming up with half a dozen friends and picking apart a huge battlecruiser in the Antares Quadrant?

Our annual birthday poll has run its course, and it's provided some interesting results. Half of our visitors have been coming to the CIC since 2000 or earlier, and almost half of those people have been around since the mid 1990s. And as great as having such a loyal user base is, we're still attracting new faces. More than 10% of active Wingnuts didn't find us until after the release of Wing Commander Arena! Thanks for coming! You're why we keep updating every day.

Yeah, we were trying to describe the Privateer experience with that option.

Kamekhs in WC2 were pretty easy. I was quite pleased when I found out that they could be destroyed with heavy gun fire, defying the Phase Shield rating listed in the Joan's Spacecraft manual.

On the other hand, they were quite a bit harder to take down in Privateer, maybe to better reflect the fact that a mere civilian craft shouldn't be able to destroy one so easily. Too, they're the only real candidate for capships in that game.
