Ship Doing Nothing Against Weak Ship
« on: March 18, 2021, 07:10:22 AM »

Capital ship vs. destroyer, who would win? If this Telamon had stayed stuck in whatever do-nothing loop it got in, the Enforcer would have. Despite being 0 flux, pointing all its guns at the Enforcer, and having no other enemy ships nearby, the Telamon refused to raise shields or fire any weapons for several seconds. No idea how to reproduce this, unfortunately. I saw it at the end of a test battle I did for the 11th Tournament.

I think I managed to spot this behavior again - in a way that should be replicable. I was doing a sim test using the Roider Union's stock Balanced Telamon with reckless AI vs the sim Venture and the 2 pristine Enforcers. The Telamon got one of the Enforcers alone using its Burn Drive and simply stared at it for several seconds, then finally ripped it apart.
