Graviton beams hard to get?

Post by veen » Thu Jan 31, 2013 10:02 am

Is that intended? I have played dozens of games with enery races now and have never been able to get them ... it seems always to be either mesons or arcologies (or any other followup failing).

Yes it is a difficult tech to get for everyone but Loa (who have great odds at it). Morrigi also have a decent chance to get it but it is definitly infrequent. The tech its self is pretty awesome sauce as the beam acts as a tractor beam as well as bypassing armor to damage structure and also has higher odds of popping turrets off the target (more pulsed graviton beams for this effect). Unless your playing as Loa i'd just take it as a treat if you get this tech, I wouldn't count on getting it much.

The tech is quite powerful, hence how hard it is to acquire.

PGB is probably the best beam weapon in the game, though its lack of range when compared to the Meson means its not always going to be the best choice, especially when shields get involved.

There is also a massive number of techs to get before you can get these - so many chances to hit bad luck.

Arcologies seem to be the main stop gap for me when playing Morrigi.

Yah - however there are 2 paths into Arcologies - I usually fail the entry from the armour side, but succeed the entry from the mining side.
