Oh yeah, I just realized stealth raiding as one of the fun things this game has to offer, after finally ditching the Disruptor- Reaper combo. It was so good it eclipsed almost all the other gameplay styles.

Sneaking lone starliner with insulated engines, is pretty great, and surprisingly ease to accomplish.

By endgame, after exploring about a third or half the sector, I find more-or-less half of the all of the blueprints, and I stealth raid for the rest.  Got to have them all!

For stealth raiding, I bring my endgame fleet plus about ten Valkyrie or Colossus III and as many marines as I cram.  If I can stealth by without a fight, great.  If I need to smash a few patrols and a star fortress?  Annoying, but as long as I get the blueprints after the raid, I am happy.

Man, I've totally missed out on this whole raiding experience up to now, besides a few boring pirate stations. Guess I have to dive in. Any tips for raising blueprint spawns?

And Megas, I have trouble seeing how blowing up a star fortress meets any standard definition of stealth, but I can appreciate your style.

What I mean by stealth raid is raiding the planet (for blueprints) while transponder is off, so that reputation does not drop all the way to hostile.  Much like fighting anyone else while transponder is off.  Sure, I would like to raid the planet without guards in the way, but if that is not possible, and I have no time to wait for guards to move out of the way, then the guards will die and the planet will be raided.
