The Revelation is a heavily armed Carrier.


Description

The Revelation is a massive Carrier, larger than most Dreadnoughts, and has a large interior.

Appearance

The Revelation is a massive, long Carrier that has one of the largest interiors in the game.

The Interior is a large, carpeted area but mostly empty to reduce lag. In the middle of it you will find a sign that says "Rev Cafe" and a Menu next to the cafeteria. If you walk down the hallway, you will end up in a large, but empty room with a window out the front and a teleporter to the hangar. There are a few seats in them facing out of the windows.

The Bridge is fairly small and has a window in the back. There are a few seats near the pilot and a seat behind facing a glass table, taken from the old Apocalypse. The pilot's seat has a blue orb in front of it, supposedly the steering wheel.

The Fighter Bay is an area in which contains 6 Strikers lined up in a row. On the back end of the hangar, you find a teleporter to the bridge.

Advantages

  • High Turret firepower makes it well-defended against attackers.
  • Can support fleets in a large scale siege.
  • Able to resist attacks from Dreadnoughts for a limited amount of time due to its high health.
  • With some skill, the Revelation can PvP some Dreadnoughts without needing the support of its Fighters.
  • Has a monstrous damage per second of 920 if all fighters are used.

Disadvantages

  • Sluggish mobility.
  • Can be overwhelmed by smaller Ships if the blindspot under the ship remains undefended.
  • Very large and makes a huge target for enemy Ships.
  • Lacks the maneuverability to flee from critical situations.
  • Long way from the seats to the fighters due to having no teleporters in between them.

Strategy

  • Don't go into open spaces because you can be ambushed by smaller Ships.
  • Make sure your team listens to your orders. If your team is good enough, they can use Strikers to burn through a base's Shield.
  • Stay behind siege ships. Dreadnoughts provide excellent cover.
  • Only charge when Dreadnoughts charge. Otherwise, focus on guiding the Laser Turrets instead of Cannons.
