Im looking for the ideal Rebel Fleets. Give me ur thoughts about what the ideal Rebel Fleet is for assaulting a fully upgraded space station, defending against a massive imperial attack, what kind of ships would best be used for assaulting pirate statinos.

When ever i go after that fleet with my fleet he sends it back behined his frontline worlds and i usually have to take on a smaller fleet and a lvl 5 space station and that always hurts my fleet pretty badly.

When i started playing my big fleet to take on hi was:

4 ISD's
4 Victory's
and a tartan to back up each ship

And i would always loss at least a victory, a ISD, and half my tartans. Before i thought broadsides where a waist of money but was i wrong. That strategy sounds pretty good, he still uses that fleet against me so i will try what you siad agianst him. And i'll let you knw the ouy come.

I'd lose an ISD and 2 vics, and stock up on the broadsiders.

I wouldn't suggest he lose an ISD. 3 MonCals + Frigates could take 3 ISDs. Four ISDs, on the other hand...

However, definitely stock the Broadsiders. I'd say around four. You can stand to lose a few Tartans; any more than 6 is superfluous, and with Broadsides, you could get away with only 4 Tartans or so.

I disagree, Mon Cals are specifcally desgined to take on ISD's. 2 Mon Cals could take on 3 ISD's

All the more reason to NOT lose another ISD. MonCals are specifically designed to take on EVERYTHING except for bombers.

I've seen a mon-cal falter under the attack of of a titan heavy capital ship, a Super star destroyer, and the almighty Sovereighn super star destroyer,lol...but the SSd is about 3 times the size of a ISD and the sovereighn is twice the size of a SSD, thus 6 times the size of a ISD and the titan is twice the size of a ISD...lol...i got this stuff from the CIS:conflict in space mod...at eaw.filefront.com, anyways, the only way a ISD can beat a mon Cal in a head-on fight with each ship in its original status(I.E. ISD has its detachtment of Tie fighters and bombers) if the ISD got a chance to hit trhe mon cal a few times with its bombers before the actual cap ship battle, then the ISD *might* have a chance of beating a mon cal, though the ISD would be severely damaged and possibly not worth using anymore. just some thoughts.

Right, which is why you never send a Mon Cal into battle without some bomber/fighter killers, i.e. Corellian Corevette, X-Wing, A-Wing, Corellian Gunship. But it is true that Mon Cals do suffer under the barrage of Bombers.

Me again 5 ISD's and 3 Broadsides where enough to take on his fleet. The only reason i used 5 ISD's was that i knew he would do anything to beat my fleet. He put in some assualt frigates and used them as suiced *bombers* so to say, so i used some of my fighters and a broadside to protect my ISD's and i only lost one ISD in the and when he sent a rescue fleet to stop me I had already brought in back-up, and lets just say i took him by surprise and only lost 2 Victory and a ISD's which where part of my back up fleet. Thanks for the advice, he knows now to look before he leaps.

What do you guys think of this fleet:
-3 ISD
-4 Tartans
-1 Fleet Commander
I have frequently used this fleet and am wondering what your opinions are

btw: why haven't we really talked about consortium fleets?

I wouldn't send it up against 17 MonCals, but it's a good solid Medium Sized Fleet. Should be useful for both anti-Fleet battles, as well as sieges of Stations, though I'd throw one Broadside in there, or maybe two, for good measure.

I agree, it takes care of business in most areas. And we havent talked bout the Consotium Fleets cause no one has mentioned them.

Only played 2 games of FoC before I got bored of it (and EaW) I barely have any time logged on either.

The Zann Consortium ships are along the same lines as the rebel ships, in that they don't carry fighter/Bomber fleets,and compensate by being slightly cheaper and carry slightly more firepower. But, I will always love the Executor SSD for its sheer size and firepower. The only thing worth throwing at them are the new rebel proton torpedo cruisers, and if their shields drop, they're doomed. No armour.

BTW: How ya doing? I'll be your resident newbie for a while.

So essenetially once its shields are gone than the Executor is gone? Narsty! Taht makes it alot easier!

Woot, I'm no longer the noob . Yea it does make it much more fair. If it had a bunch of armor it would be very OP but its lack of armor gives it a disadvantage that balances it, without making it useless like an Acclamator

Woah there! Zann Consortium ships cheaper? They're far more expensive, and therefore more nasty. They'll pack an equal punch as the Imps or Rebs without having to get fifteen capitol ships.

I wasn't talking about Zann ships... Isn't the Executor an Imperial ship?

And yes I know the Zann ships are awesome, and on the brink of (or maybe past it) being unbalanced.

Ohhh, I see now... Sorry for not understanding that...

Sorry... the Zann ships are more expensive, I more meant in terms of the fighter/bomber squadrons jacking the prices yet more.
Note: Executor-class Super Star Destroyer is and imperial ship, and the Rebel torpedo cruiser (MC-30s, I think) are doomed once their shields fail. But they are extremely quick and quite nimble, and carry torpedo bays that cause the same amount of damage per volley as ten bomber squadrons.
And the Zann Consortium Vengeance Frigates aren't nasty, really, they die too quick and lack the ability to run and return with recharged shields (less adaptive than nearly any other ship).
As for a fleet, ten Executors, and about one hundred Tartans... Just for the "Oh no" value of seeing the fleet fly up to you...
Further Note: If anyone was to be "unbalanced" it would have to be the Empire.

That would be a waste of resources. But it defenety would have terrifying fire power and would make all, even the most expereinced players shake in their boots.
