The Stormbringer was the first Carrier to be added, introduced in version .40.

Description

The Stormbringer has a very 'modern' shape.

The main body of the ship is composed of a large hangar that takes up most of its volume. The hangar has three pass-through "shields" on each side, with one Fighter spawning in front of each "shield" door.

Interior

The Stormbringer contains two teleporters. The first teleports players directly to the bridge, and the second goes to the hangar. The hangar contains seats and Fighters. The bridge contains a few seats and the pilot's seat.

Advantages

  • Has a decent amount of fighters.
  • Has balanced shield and hull DPS.

Disadvantages

  • Relatively slow.
  • Can't face off against bigger Ships without the help of the Fighters.
  • Fighter bay doors aren't solid, enabling small ships and other Fighters to pass through if not destroyed fast enough.
  • Overall DPS with carrier's armament is the second lowest in it's class(only the Ghoul Nyx has worse DPS), even accounting for ships like the Icarus that have terrible line of sight; being worse than several Destroyers.
  • While the fighters have good Shield damage, they are incredibly lacking with Hull damage, leaving this carrier practically useless against Capital Ships that are hull tanks, Starbases, and planets without support from a ship with a decent compliment of kinetic weaponry.

Strategy

  • Good for launching Fighter Swarms, as the Furies have high firepower and they are provided in sufficient amounts to effectively assault a base.

Version History

  • Remodeled by oChaosWarrioro in .61e4.
  • Health increased to 6250 Shields, 6000 Hull, Top Speed reduced to 29, Turn Speed changed to 0.03, Acceleration changed to 5, and Cargo Hold increased to 1260.
  • Remodeled again in version .64c.
  • Hull increased from 6000 to 10000, loadout changed to 2 Medium Lasers, 4 Heavy Point Defense Lasers and 2 Heavy Flak Cannons in version .68d.
  • Hull reduced from 10000 to 7000 in version .69a2.

Trivia

  • The old Stormbringer had what seemed to be a large runway on the top. Although it may have been meant to be used for landing, it was rarely used by players other than as a walking platform.
  • The Stormbringer's original model was nicknamed "The Shoebox"
