Re: Thoughts on stalling in citadel runs
This. Wholly and completely, this.
If you have 3 or 4 NPPs attacking you and you stall, you keep them targeting you by stalling. This allows others to build the combos that will kill the NPPs.
Stalling just to stall makes no sense, I agree. But it is a valid tactic.
Edit: That is to say, stalling can be a valid tactic to winning against NPPs. However, just "blanket stalling" is not a path to victory.
If I have a player that doesn't know how to send large attacks and is constantly sending 3 or 4 sprinkles at a time, I'd rather they stalled and allow the other, more severe, attacks to get through instead.
For the "by not attacking them unless we are certain to kill them" statement, what you're looking for is a ship that has nothing but insta-kill SF'ers.
