[SOLVED] Enemy ships cloning unowned boarders

Postby FDru » Mon Apr 28, 2014 1:08 pm

Basically, if you jump into a fight with enemy boarders on your ship, and the beacon you land on has a ship with a clone bay, those boarders will be cloned into the enemy ship when they die. I had a small Zoltan cruiser filled with like 9 enemy Zoltans due to this. Hilarious, but I assume it's not intentional.

It's intentional actually. We enjoy that chaos that can emerge from that :)

I've always felt that was somewhat appropriate. Obviously rebels will clone other rebels if they are on your ship, and In the worst case scenario, "the enemy of my enemy is my friend", so anyone you are battling is going to have a vested interest in cloning your enemies to send back at you!

It is a little known fact that cloning bays use Wonkavision(TM) technology.

This explains why I keep reading the title as "clowned boarders" :?
