no my friend will fight at the base

i do realy HATE the Hydran
|By Mike Curtis (Nashvillen) on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 - 04:45 pm: Edit|
Offer an approach, fight one round and leave. The rest of the fleet should be slaughtering the Hydrans that are not defending the rest of their kingdom. You don't have enough to take on the SB here. But, you pinned down 10 SC3 ships and a PAL away from the capital where they are needed. Your job as the Klingon fleet commander is done here. Your highest command rating is 9, command ships to choose from: C5, D7C, D7C.
Put up a line with three fighter squadrons like this:
D7C(cmd, form bonus), Line: [2xF5Q]BG,[D6V+2xE4A], 6 fighters from [CVT+2xE4A], [FV+E4A] in support echelon, D6S as free scout. This will give you 63/4. The Hydrans, seeing your fleet and knowing your offer of approach will send the following:
PAL, [3xHR, 3xLN] BG, 3xRN, 2xHR, SC for FS for 106.5/1 with over 40 fighters. They will spank you and you will go away.
But, you have done your job. You have pinned 28 ships with junk carriers and some support ships.
BTW, the C5 should be in the raid pool with a PT and the D7A should be with a D6M and a D6J to be most effective. Next to useless here.
|By Mike Curtis (Nashvillen) on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 - 04:46 pm: Edit|
Edit to above, if he declined the approach, leave. Again, you have done your job. They are not fighting at the capital.
|By Keith Plymale (Zaarin7) on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 - 05:00 pm: Edit|
If EP will allow and even if going to leave remember the 3 x D6D. Also you have also got the number for your BG to be 3xF5L and 3xF5. That option will add 13 ComPot making 76. You will have 10 fighters and the BG ships can be flipped for up to 33 for cripple though if there is pursuit they could be vulnerable.
I agree on fight a round and leave. The big fight is at 0617
|By Mike Curtis (Nashvillen) on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 - 05:03 pm: Edit|
That is just throwing EPs away. The drones will be absorbed by the fighters.
|By Keith Plymale (Zaarin7) on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 - 05:35 pm: Edit|
That's the problem with looking at something like this in isolation.
What were my first for words? "If EP will allow..."
We don't know what turn it is. We don't know what all the other things that go on in a turn are. We don't even know which table they are using for damage rolls and if they are using VBIR.
|By Mike Oliver (Mholiver) on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 - 06:32 pm: Edit|
"Offer an approach"....Well he will not do that......he fighting with the Starbase....No approach......I did do what i wish to do by pinning......this is turn 5.....what is standing 2xBats (0114),(0318), 2xSB (0215),(0716),(1017), and the Capital (0617)......like I say before (0716) Hydran 39 Ships 48.5 Fighters.....klingon 85 Ships 25 Fighters......I feel good about this fight.......then I did good on this dont fight and run away to fight aother day
|By Mike Oliver (Mholiver) on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 - 06:33 pm: Edit|
oh we using the CB
|By John de Michele (Jdemichele) on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 - 06:42 pm: Edit|
In terms of the Hydrans, it's almost always a bad idea to use drones, unless you have a mauler and he's putting out high value targets that you can kill with DirDam. Even then, you're better off increasing the COMPOT density by putting heavier ships and liberal use of Prime Teams if you can.
|By Stewart Frazier (Frazikar2) on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 - 07:09 pm: Edit|
With the D7A, you could go cruiser hunting (especialloy if the Hydran accepts the approach) - the loss of the D7A would be balanced by the loss of two Hydran ships, going for a third is something to think about but ...
|By Peter Bakija (Bakija) on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 - 09:46 pm: Edit|
Yeah, I'm with Mike Curtis.
It is *very* rare that you actually need to kill a starbase that is heavily defended. Early in the game, yes, you need to kill a heavily defended SB in someone's capital (i.e. Hydran or Kzinti). But the rest of the time, what you do with starbases is pin ships on them, threaten them, and leave them alone.
The way you kill starbases is by threatening something else that is more important (i.e. the capital). And then your opponent need to defend the starbase poorly. So you kill it when it is poorly defended.
It is not impossible that, late in the game, you might *really* want to kill a SB. And you can attack it with as many ships as are defending it (in the 100's of ships, I'd imagine). And then you can take a ton of damage SIDSing it to death. But in general, certainly early in the war, you don't kill starbases that are heavily defended. You work around it.

Thanks guys for the info
|By Michael Alan Calhoon (Mcalhoon2) on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 - 11:36 pm: Edit|
Congratulations! You pinned high quality Hydrans with scrub ship equivalents, and didn't even have to use a CR10 unit. And then he (probably)mistakenly didn't come out and spank you in the approach battle. To quote a song, "you gotta know when hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away, and know when to run." It's time to run.
|By Mike Oliver (Mholiver) on Thursday, July 17, 2014 - 11:23 am: Edit|
hmmmmmmm Kenny Rogers The Gammbler a very good song and a good movies.......and yes Im running.....and thank you....but i was hoping for more but the pin is good
|By Peter Bakija (Bakija) on Thursday, July 17, 2014 - 12:25 pm: Edit|
Yeah, there is no percentage at all in trying to fight at the SB with what you have. The Hydrans have just as many ships as you. And a SB. And better ships than you. The Hydran's compot over the base is going to be, like, twice what yours is. And he has over 50 fighters to absorb free damage on.
It would be like running full on into a woodchipper.

I wonder if a request for a sheet with the new Fed ECL from the 2010 sheet and the more common triangle ships in multiple copies would gain any traction with the powers that be? This would be a great thing for folks like me that have supported F&E since the beginning and have literally hundreds of counters those two changes made obsolete.
