Re: Dead Again. Sucks, Right?

The DA-SR 12 isn't that bad I think. It starts with level 2 cloaking. First thing to do should be getting a level 3.

Re: Flagship Best way to deal with hacking drone?

Where exactly hacking drone is much of a problem depends a lot of the setup of your ship. Shields or drive/pilot are of course always a problem. On weapons, it is always annoying, sometimes (if you have slowly charging weapons) it's even crippling - in connection with that pesky cloaking device of t...
