Star Conflict Giveaway: Nab One Of 2,000 Fighter Ships

Star Conflict

Star Conflict [official site], the free-to-play space action MMO, has just welcomed a destroyer class to its ranks of spaceships. They’re the slower-but-covered-in-guns type of ship – big on firepower and requiring a lot of your precious space resources. That’s why, to start you on your path to a destroyer, we’re offering up 2,000 Black Hort spaceships.

Black Horts are premium fighter class ships which offer good defence and great team-play options. The premium bit also means you get more money and experience as rewards for using them in battle. Here’s a closer look:

    I’m gonna try this game now. I guess that makes me a sucker, but I do like free things.

      I mean, that’s the idea, right? Give away free stuff, convince you to try out the game, maybe get hooked and spend more money. I’m fine with that.

    VOCABULARY FACT: “Destroyer” was originally short for “torpedo boat destroyer”; in the late 19th century, they were small, fast, lightly armed craft built specifically to ward off swarms of tiny, cheap torpedo boats that could otherwise outmaneuver and destroy big, lumbering, expensive battleships.

    As technology advanced, destroyers got bigger along with everything else on the ocean, but remained focused on defending against relatively small, agile targets–mainly aircraft and submarines. It wasn’t until the Cold War really got going that guided missile destroyers began to emerge with the firepower to completely replace the larger battleships.

    It looks like Star Conflict gets that about right–compared to fighters, a destroyer is a real big bastard. I’m still amused by things like e.g. Star Wars that think a “destroyer” is the biggest independent ship around, rather than one of the smallest.

      You don’t get out much do ya?

        Says the guy who is also posting on videogame comment threads. :)

    • Antsy says:

      Are you saying that you think that because a Star Destroyer has the word ‘Destroyer’ in it’s name that anyone thinks it’s the same as a Naval Destroyer class vessel? Bizarre.

      • 4th Dimension says:

        Even if Star Wars maybe uses the correct terminology (I’m not aware if they ever state the class of the SDs in the movies) it is a valid complaint because it’s a really common mistake to label the biggest class of ships destroyers.

        I think it mostly happens because DESTROYER sounds waaaayyy more cool than a Cruiser of Battleship to someone who doesn’t know the terminology.

    I’d be willing to front the standards if there was any interest in forming an RPS corp. Any takers?

    Oh man, it has been less than 24 hours and only 7 comments and all of the 2k codes are gone? I feel a little bitter :)
