Everything is done on chance, things like that happen, it happens in any game with luck like that to decide conflict, freak results, a while back we had a wp beating a planet, it happens

Bad reference but, when playing warhammer, one guy had light skirmishers against a giant, normally the giant would have had no problem, but due to bad luck, the giant died, stupid, but it happens

And if your opponent's ships weren't fully equiped, you have a good chance.

*sarcasm* Now there's a GREAT tactic... scare off your opponents with a bunch of ships that aren't even armed - then, force them to surrender... *sarcasm*

Too bad some people don't ever get fooled, eh? Sounds like some spying was going on...

Edit: Go check the bug reports. You will see that his ships were confirmed to not be fully equipped.

If anybody wonders, ships that are not fully equipped is a BAD idea.

They are cheaper to build, but they cost the same in upkeep. It won't be many turns before the cheaper build cost will seem insignificant.

Also, while larger ships are generally tougher, smaller ships are usually _faster_, which means they fire first in combat. That helps a bunch of H4s against H5-7 or so. Against the really big ships you fire first but barely scratch the paint of the other ship. Sad

the main exceptions to this are:

h11 -- often built with just shields to protect h10 from ships set to attack strongest
h1 -- same thing just reverse -- usually built with just S1 D3
(h3 -- they have torpedoes, so can shoot at h1... however depending on the fleet you might expect them to be dead before they can fire their lasers)


and a tactic i have thought about...

ships which get fire gain high moral => send an army of large ships into battle (h11/h10/h9 for example) with just 1L1 (and/or T1) each Very Happy

the battle will take much longer and should give enough time for all ships to fire => all receiving high moral

after the battle, you send them to a shipyard and re-equip the full load of weapons -> now a whole fleet can fire with high moral + full weaponary
