Raid Starships mandatory?
It seems like I have to research mark 2 or mark 3 very soon into the game EVERY TIME. Not that they'd be overpowered, but some situations are just 1000 times easier.

What to do vs eyes for example without raid starships? Kinda sick of microing raid starships all the time, seems like that's the majority of what I'm doing in AI war recently.

Assault ships are simply Raid Starships mark V imho. When your Mark I-IV aren't enough anymore. I wanted to mention Assault Transports before writing this as the second strategy I use, so yeah.

If sabotage wasn't so hit or miss ... is there a way to cloak or secure the hacker thingy once a tachyon warhead was launched by the AI?

Shields from Riot Starship/Protector Starship/Shield Bearer?

For sabotage: one trick is to distract the AI with transports, or seed the sabotage hackers around the planet while moving the hacker. Typically it's easy to make one sabotage survive long enough to take out the eye.

Otherwise I often use a starships-team with flagship, zenith, and spire. Add in riots for shield from time to time. For many 2:1 eyes that work very well at taking out the guard posts.
(Those starships are also much more useful than raid in conventional assaults.)


Do also note that the cloaker booster exist for a reason. I have found it very helpful to get scouts further, but also to keep hacker from being killed before doing the job. (On that note, you can spam sabotage without problem as long as you use pause to avoid killing stuff you dont' want to spend hacking points on. It works wonder.)

Personally, I don't use Raid Starships a lot. I remember using them a lot when I was using the Epic system (where they're good), but once I started playing in Normal mode, they all died too quickly to be interesting.
