Advanced Ship

This ship is an Advanced ship. It is a powerful, semi-limited ship that stands out among others of its class and may require special build materials or quests.

The Imperator is an Advanced Battleship.

Description

The Imperator is a very powerful Battleship and was the first of its class to require artifacts to build. It has two large, angled arms lined with turrets, as well as a central rounded region from which the spinals are fired. The ship has a futuristic gray and neon styling theme, which is seen in other advanced ships like the Prototype X-1

Interior

The interior of the Imperator is only a box with a teleporter in the back and neon glass in its front.

Advantages

Disadvantages

  • Currently the 2nd most expensive Battleship, at a whopping 1,400,000 Credits.
  • Very large, practically Dreadnought-sized.
  • Has two blind spots, one in the very front in between the arms, and another one behind the ship.
  • Thick profile and top-mounted Turrets make it hard to shoot ships that move below you.
  • Somewhat weak to Shield Breakers as it has mainly Shield-based health.
  • Often loses to the Helios, another Advanced Battleship, and the Nautilus, an Alien Battleship.

Strategy

  • Despite some difficulty, it can defend against small ships, however it is best used against larger ships.
  • The Imperator can easily destroy low-tier Dreadnoughts, making it a great ship against Super Capital Ships if you can manage to stay in their blind spots.
  • The Imperator is fit for pirating, and is pretty good at it too.
