    Ah, makes sense now :)

    I may be wrong on the reverse thing, my apologies if so. Maybe I misinterpreted a post. All I can find now is this:

    "Ships don't have specific maximum reverse speed, only worse acceleration backwards. And if you don't have the acceleration force, it doesn't pick up speed either. On the down wave you can reverse as fast as you go forward but it's more tricky."

    Which does mean all ships can reverse as fast as move forward, it will be the acceleration that's different. It also means you're correct on overboost boosting the reverse.

    ah yes, that's the always been the most unique aspect of this game... the freaking waves!!!

    And yes, acceleration is the better term for it... enforcers have superior reverse acceleration. and if used well, you will be very hard to hit

    Lots of good advice, thanks for posting!

    I'm not sure I agree with this, or better said, it may depend on your level. I've been through phases of the game where first I never had enough gold and I kept losing sugar to overflows (because the bucket is too small compared to training costs), then I never had enough sugar to get the quests I needed plus deal with item level-ups, and now I'm in the middle, where both are in equal short supply. I welcome both sugar and gold quests, because I am forced to save up all sugar to keep training active, and I try to save gold for items that appear in the market. Now it's very balanced.

    Here's a word of advice from me on Power Cells (those things many people people don't realize exist):

    I've hit a hard wall in the game that affects both FTP and PTP players: I cannot further evolve Rare items due to lack of Rare power cells. I estimate I can farm 20 per week, maybe a little more, but it takes 100 power cells to evolve a single item to T4. There's no way to earn them, and there's no way to buy them with real world cash without literally breaking the bank to buy and scrap rare items for a single power cell per item (or an evolved uncommon, which is very expensive). At uncommon level power cells are plentiful.... at all other levels they seem to be very precious. I can't make use of my thousands of uncommon power cells because I can't find enough uncommon parts in the market or via scrapping.... and considering you need more uncommon parts than rare parts to level up rare items, they are better saved for that. This situation doesn't affect those that pick a few items and stick with them the whole game, it affects those of us who keep a bunch of items; the kind of players good for breadth of guild quests.

    yes, those damn power cells can be frustrating to collect... for rare power cells you can get guaranteed quantities of it (outside of scrapping rares) if you level up an uncommon item to level 21 and then scrap it... you'll get rare power cells for sure then. But as far as resource farming techniques are concerned, i'm not that knowledgeable on that so i can't really give you more details. i'll focus more on actual battle strategies and boat loadouts. Good luck to ya :)

    as for the gold vs sugar dilemna, i have never had any trouble collecting sugar, i routinely max out my sugar cap in 1-2 days of regular play, well ahead of my crew's training duration. i always have enough for crew training and upgrades. i have more trouble building up my gold storage because i need to keep on buying parts. This, of course, depends on how much time you put into playing the game.

    Two things. Speeder and Enforcer. Maybe some map specific tips.

    OP was good yellow :) good description of how to use focus fire, retreating and flanking. In addition to missing flanking just generally causes them to rotate turrets and leave them doing less dps as they have no target and are just staring at a wall sometimes lol, hate when it happens to be by a pesky enforcer.

    I didn't read all of it, but did read most.
    Pretty decent but as of the last patch I largely disagree on your point about getting gold quests over sugar. I always re roll a gold quest to get a sugar one now.
    With the guild raffle, I am overflowing with rare and epic perks for weapons or items I don't use, and so I sell them. I am constantly sitting on 2 million gold now, with over 10k of every part (including epic). The only thing holding me back is sugar now.
