You take losing ships way too lightly, man. Where's the drama? The rage? I think we went to different space captain schools. Then again, I am a pirate. ;D

Also you would be more efficient if you eased up on the escort commands a little. They're fine for keeping ships alive, but if the AIs are forced to stay within a certain area, they step on each other's toes with line-of-sight and just generally don't perform killing duty as well.

Not to mention it limits mobility

For his defense, that tactic really works well with Exi once you get an Irithia. Ships cover each other with their temporary shields and the Carrier bring close and isolate priority targets.

I normally don't rage at losing ships, tend to be lazy and think "Ahh, I'll just buy more".  I could try some raging though, that might be fun. :D

I try to develop a particular tactic for the race I am playing.  I lost quite a bit of ships in the beginning during every fight, until I figured out that particular tactic.  It works so well with EXI shields that it made them pretty strong in the end.

I'm going to take Tartiflette's advice and try to let my capital ship be automated while I run around in something a bit more mobile for more strategic work.

BTW Big shout to MesoTroniK on making such an awesome mod and to everyone else in the community for just being great in general.

The fun thing is, you take them so well that it made me no longer save-scum every-time I lost something bigger than a destroyer. Now I only do that if I loose everything or the battle went bad because of a AI mishaps... (like this time a frigate tried to evade a missile by ramming my engines, exploded, damaging my ship, flaming-out the propulsion, sending me spiraling into the deadly embrace of the opposing capital ship)

On the other hand, watching NemoNeamo enraged after losing ships is pretty entertaining too :p

I need get around to watching NemoNeamo.  Seems like he is pretty active with SS LPs.  Do you have a specific video where he rages? :)
