Dragoclaw and the gang spend six hours in an epic struggle to redeem their past failures to defeat the Borg menace.

Posted by on

It was an entertaining match to watch, just under 6 hours long.


The guys learn some new things in this multi-star fight pitting the Federation, Klingon Empire, Romulan Star Empire, and the Dominion, against two allied Borg.

only way to beat the borg in that mod is to rush them at the start, once they get cubes you be screwed.

It's actually not that difficult, you just have to know how the game works a little better. It's all about using the ways to counteract assimilation and burn off their antimatter. The Dominion can handle them by combining their high level buffs with a swarm of frigates using Energy Dissipators to drain antimatter. The Federation and Klingon Empire have specific abilities that target the Borg and do massive damage. The Romulan Star Empire has an AOE disable that can drain an entire Borg fleet at once as they decloak in the middle of it and use their abilities designed to do high output damage for a short duration.

In the hands of a player, they would be gods, but the AI is far too artificial to overcome it's tactical shortcomings even with the Borg.

No the only way to beat the borg is to remove the mod from the game no mod NO BORG

You are correct sir!

It was truly a lot of fun to spend time with players who are also great friends. The community in the chat was also friendly. It was 6 hours well spent.

Having you, psychoak, in the chat was a nice plus.

It must have been a little hard for you to watch and not play though, kinda like Yo-yo Ma face-palming while someone else played his cello.

Hope you're their for the next one too.

:)

I might be bad enough at this point that I wouldn't have been able to solo them. My knowledge of the design is unequaled, playing skills, not so much.

I'd love to join in if I have time, but you guys are on the other side of the pond, I had you on while I was working. :)

Then move to the colonies and enjoy civilization. Don't forget that on arrival at JFK all foreign citizens are required to purchase a gun. Americans can just take theirs out of their carry-ons. :P
