And if you have a better drive, your ship will shoot earlier. So a H6 with D8 shoot before a H4 with D1!

Oh, ok. But..if there's two H4's, with same drives, same torpedoes (those fire first?) and same lasers..what then? o.O they both shoot?

under help there is an example battle report

but in brief:

torpedoes
lasers
lasers

torpedoes
lasers
lasers

torpedoes
lasers
lasers

etc...

so in longer battles the lasers fire more, but torps have the advantage of going first

Then it's luck, which ship will shoot first.

initiative = (2 * hull level - drive level) +/- 0.4999999...

The lesser initiative fires first.

Now now, that is not hard math. Rolling Eyes

Double the hull level, subtract the drive level. This gives you the basic initiative of the ship. Low numbers are good.

The +/- 0.499999 part only means that ships with the same basic initiative fire in random order.
