The logic is pretty simple: if missile weapons had unlimited, free ammo would you use anything else? No, you wouldn't. They are awesome! Well, the AI gets unlimited free ammo. If a missile doesn't kill you outright, it sas your money until you're broke and helpless.
Ship evasion is also greatly overrated. It is completely possible to win fights with nobody in the cockpit or engine room. Except the missiles will still kill you.
That is not true, the ships don't have unlimited missiles. Many times I have lastest out a fight where they have their missile system powered up, but don't shoot any missiles. (excption being the flagship, unlimited EVERYTHING)
And maybe having evasion isn't nessecary, but it will be EXTREMELY hard to win without evasion, the flagship just fires too much stuff for your sheilds to take it all.
If the AI did have unlimited missiles, then we would be really screwed, but they do eventully run out. So until they do, u need either evasion or a defense drone to survive.
But i do like this game, and missiles are your friends.
