The Last Hurrah
« on: February 04, 2012, 08:09:57 PM »

First, I'd like to say that I'm definitely not regretting buying the alpha two days ago. This game is just as amazing as I thought it would be, reading the blog, poring over the ship and weapon descriptions, and seeing TotalBiscuit's video!

I've since beaten all nearly all the missions with an over 70% score... except The Last Hurrah. For some reason, I just can't nail it, what with the lack of torpedo bombers/bombers on my side and the Onslaught + assault destroyers on the other.

Any tips from the more experienced? Thanks! :)

Finally beat it! The key for me was sending in all my Thunder fighters first, and then sending in more fighters to effectively control nearly all the points before sending in my flagship + carrier and destroyers. Then, since the enemy has so few points and is gradually sending in destroyers and their Onslaught one at a time, strike one ship at a time and use torpedos once their shield's down to take them out quickly.
