Show Notes:  

Battle at X47L-Q Keepstar – NC staging

What lead up to this fight

  • NC’s staging is at strat 2 so the imperium was under the clock to kill the keepstar before the system ticked over to strat 3 opening the system up to be jammed.
  • Goons strategy is to destroy the IHUBs to reset the strat index, disabling the cynojammers to be able to move their super fleet in

Attack timeline and strategy

  • NC DDs use mechanic to tether after the target dies to spool up DD and regen cap to be ready to volley again sooner than the GSF titans
  • GSF responds by dropping supercarriers at zero on the KS to tackle titans to keep them from tethering

Jay’s Titan Escape

Preview of Final Timer

  • NC will either fight until the KS is 2/3rds into structure and bug out or hope to trade titans once the KS dies to the end
