So after finishing Homeworld 1, I’ve come to an unsettling conclusion. It seems that the Taiidan Emperor fell asleep at the start of the mission, because he doesn’t actually build anything lol. He starts with his three cruisers and two Mdestroyers, plus all those support frigs. He ends with those ships as well, at no point does he construct new fleets to send at me while all the hyperspace reinforcements swing in. Reeeaalllyyy? Did nobody think to make sure that great enemy’s mothership on the final battle of the more important game will actually work?
Also this was particularly underwhelming anyway considering the change in ships. I remember in classic the Mothership would go down to like 20% and that was with six support frigates repairing it, because the Taiidan zerg rush would be so potent. My mothership hardly went to 70% because I wiped out his frigates so quickly, I guess it’s an unfortunate consequence of the new mechanics.
