What do I need to pursue remnant frigates?
« on: December 01, 2018, 11:25:59 PM »

The game says speed is the determining factor, but even with a frigate with 255 top speed in my fleet I can't pursue remnants. How does this mechanic work?

I think it's burn speed, you need at least one ship faster than or as fast as Burn 11.

Correct

If you've learnt Augmented Drive Field you can get any burn speed 9 ship up to par.  Otherwise you may need to find a ship with natural burn speed 11, a Tempest or the Pirate variant Falcon 

Another option is to bring less force so they aren't scared away and will give battle
