Description

The Devastation is a Battlecruiser with emphasis on support.

Advantages

  • Great Turret placement, and range.
  • Very high cargo hold for a Battlecruiser.
  • 2nd Highest health of all non-event Battlecruisers.

Disadvantages

  • Incredibly sluggish maneuverability for a Battlecruiser.
  • Long reloads due to the lack of rapid-fire turrets.
  • Very poor damage output for a Battlecruiser, being worse than several Frigates due to the poor turret armament and weak Spinal Weaponry.
  • Very weak against small ships, even worse when against large numbers.
  • Retired ship, making it limited and a huge target.

Strategy

  • Keep the enemy in front to make use of the Spinals and Turrets.
  • Support sieges and fleets.
  • Use Spinals for extra shield damage.
  • Best used against other Battlecruisers and/or larger ships as the Heavy Turrets struggle to hit smaller ships, though larger Cruisers like the Gryphon and Spectre are an exception depending on the range.

Version History

  • Name fixed in .69d.
  • 1 Heavy Cannon replaced with 1 Dual Medium Cannon in version .71b.
  • Made offsale and archived in .75a12 due to numerous problems such as partshift.
