Super Capital Ship

This ship is classified as a Super Capital. It is one of the most powerful Capital Ships and can be built on the build menu.

The Deity is one of the nine Super Capital Ships in the game. It is a serious threat to other large ships.

Description

The Deity is a rather fast and agile Super Capital Ship, despite its large size. It is capable of dishing out large amounts of damage.

Interior

The interior of the Deity is a rather large room that contains a small staircase leading up to the pilot's seat. In front of the pilot's seat is a teleporter which leads to a hidden room.

Advantages

  • Faster and has a better turn speed than most Dreadnoughts.
  • Has a turn speed as good as some Battleships.
  • Turrets have a good line of sight, especially when under targets.
  • Has high health and excellent mobility for it's class.
  • Has high turret-based firepower.
  • It out speeds all the build menu dreadnoughts except Leviathan and Slipstream.
  • Has a toaster shrine.
  • You don’t have to worry about aiming the spinals, because it has none.

Disadvantages

  • No Spinals.
  • No Turrets underneath the ship, making it an easy target for swarms of smaller ships(this doesn't really matter much however, as this ship is very maneuverable).
  • Hard to hit small ships with this ship.
  • Like most large ships, it has a lot of surface area where it can be easily shot. This is somewhat balanced by the relatively high speed of this ship.

Strategy

  • Never travel alone unless you are absolutely certain you will not lose it.
  • Keep large ships in your line of fire by taking advantage of your quick speed and good maneuverability.
  • When fighting against large ships such as other Super Capitals or Dreadnoughts, take advantage of your superior mobility and warp underneath them.
  • This ship is great at diving, so use that to your advantage.
