Anyone discovered a defense against nukes in like the first fifteen minutes of the game? They just come in and kill my mothership and I can't seem to find a way to defend against this happening. Viper missles don't work and I can't target with guns. HELP!

Good idea, with an expendable ship, a Frigate of some kind should do the trick.

Tried that with fighters and it doesn't work. Until it's fixed, the game is unplayable.

Yeah that would be annoying. That's why I put nukes behind a heavy research wall.

I wonder how an enemy can afford them so early in the game?

I think the only actual cure is to hyperspace your mothership far enough away from it that it runs out of steam before reaching it

The AI has an in-built advantage over human players. However, unstoppable early game nukes are a bit too much of an advantage imo, game balance adjustment need here.

Are you guys talking about the perforation bombs? Because I get a wave of those coming in right at the start of the match, and even with all 4 of the weapon slots on my mothership/carrier mounting fast tracking turrets and firing at the bombs, they can't even manage to take out the first one before it obliterates my ship.

This is ridiculous. Why is this not even being acknowledged by any of the devs? It makes player vs. CPU skirmishes unplayable, which is the only game type I play, so if they're not going to address this at all I'm going to have to take a break from supporting this project on Patreon.

The only effective defence I have ever found against perforation bombs is to withdraw the ship they are targeting. There is no defence against them.

They should not be appearing early in the game though.

Nukes should also not be appearing this early in the game.

@junktabot
I suggest that you PM Oni about this.

Those bombs shouldn't arrive that early and they shouldn't be in groups.
However I have reduced the frequency and now they come much much later.
Next patch.
If you have other bugs, please tell me, thanks.
