Today we start to publish our top three guides from the AE Guide Contest. Congradulations to Zeppelin for his excellent look at Cruiser Stacks which won him third place and a 3 month upgrade.
Cruiser Stack Guide by Zeppelin
Cruiser stack is probably the most common and easiest to use fleet in the game. A cruiser stack's main component is fighters/corvettes/destroyers/cruisers/carriers.
Overview of the cruiser:
Cost: 200 credits
atk/def/shd: 24(power)/24(armour)/2(shield) (base)
Advantages of a Cruiser Stack:
- Can do alot of things including base hitting, fleet hitting, fighter drop to an extent, recycler hunting.. you name the job and a cruiser stack can probably do it to some degree.
- Little to no tech requirements, easy to build up and increase in size.
- Good recycler support.
- Decent defense, won't be taken down in most cases for a great ratio. (You will probably see 1:2 most of the time, but none of the ridiculous 1:4's that some fleets can get taken down for)
- Fastest shielded fleet in the game
We'll be publishing our final guides over next week so make sure to stay tuned to the Portal!
