Hey all - my friends and I are involved in a podcast that talks about whatever gaming we happen to be doing at the time. Recently we've gotten heavily into STAW, and our most recent episode spends a bit of time talking about the game. We also have a couple of articles up about STAW. Please come by and check us out. We won't always be talking about the game, but it will certainly come up.

The podcast episode with STAW:

Let us know what you think!

Enjoyed your play report. What was your full build for the Dominion fleet?

I don't remember quite what the Dominion fleet I had was - it has evolved slightly since I played then. My current build is something like this:

Kraxon
- Generic Captain
- EM Pulse (Tech)
- Glinn telle (Crew)

Gor Portas
- Gul Danar (Captain)
- Energy Dissipator (Weapon)
- Breen Aide (Crew)

Breen Battle Cruiser
- Sar (Captain)
- Energy Dissipator (Weapon)
- Breen Aide (Crew)

The idea was to have the Kraxon head out between the two Breen ships and offer them some support. As the enemy started closing, use Glinn Telle to reduce the incoming first volley, then use the EM Pulse and Scanning from the Breen ships to target and destroy one enemy ship. Hopefully get past them and try to turn around. Usually the Cardiassian ship would take too long to get back in the fight while the Breen ships had to come back in without his support. The Cardassians able to take most of the hits off the Breen usually gave me decently-healthy Breen ships to come back into the fight with.

I put a new article on Guessing Zero up this morning - talking about the Defiant and 5th Wing Patrol Ship. I'm really looking forward to these two expansions hitting stores in a couple weeks.

How did you fare with not shooting first with the Breen ships? That's my concern.

Honestly, I didn't fare very well at all. Most times I would lose a ship pretty quickly with the Dominion against any of the other fleets. Going late in the turn, combined with ships that are not fantastic at taking hits, makes for a difficult fleet to field. At least in my experience. I hope the 5th Wing ship will change that.



As an aside, I also played in my first Month Two event last night. I put up an article about my experiences in both my first month event (on Sunday) and my second month event (on Tuesday) on the Guessing Zero website. Check it out.

I was having the same issue. I played a 2 v 2 100 points build and put Picard and Spock on there ans was able to own. But trying to work out an effective 3 ship build was just hard.the format isn't quite there yet.

Congrats on the win tho.
