How to counter build:
If you see missiles on his ships build point defense.
If you see lasers build shields or crystal infused hulls.
If you see projectile weaponry build armor.
If you see armor build lasers, crystal throwers and plasma throwers.
If you see shields build torpedoes, ion disruptors and projectile weapons.
If you see hangars build point defense and flak.
If you see plasma throwers do not build armor.
If you see ion disruptors do not build shields.
If a majority of his fleet is corvettes pick ship sections with lots of small weapon slots so you can shoot more of them rather than “overkill” them with big weapon slots.
If you see a lot of big ships or you know the fight will involve an enemy defense station then get large weapon slots.
Also, corvette swarms are overpowered if you emphasize the evade stat.
Lastly, be sure totake into account the range on your weaponry. Crystal throwers and auto cannons are very short range weaponry so mass producing those on ships means you must get real close in order to use them so do not put them on ships with low defenses.KalkiKrosah.
