i have a entire folder of swarm builds but i tried the "super firebug swarm" i posted previously against the pac mans. it was entertaining but the silly ions really are not all that good so my ships god slaughtered.
after that i tried it against a redo of my first swarm ship.
it took a few minutes just to break it up
and with both swarm fleets broke up, set teams and set normal AI
and watched Pac Men eat dots at 4 frames a second.
the fight spread out across the entire sector... little things tend to get knocked backwards when cannon shots hit the shields on them.. wow... most of the pacs are one on one eternally chasing a single or pair of dots.... one was utterly surrounded and actually got burned through. the rest basically stalemated untill dumb moves by the AI caused the dots to get murdered.
