Who wins?
Player A has 100 serps
Player B has 100 serps

Player A and B send serps to an unoccupied sectionon the battlefield. Which player wins?

I suppose it depends on who attain the most technical "kills" over the other player. The result will always be the same, 0 serps in the end assuming either player does not take out their own serps by mistake.

In all it would be an interesting scenario to witness.

Serps, huh. This unit is a pain in the *ss, literally. Have had soo many problems with it, cus of its sheer speed and punching power. Once i tried the Taerkasten campaign and used the Serp, defending against it became easier as i became aware of it's stats.

Love spamming it though. :)

100 Serps on a HS? You're dead if i set them to Aggro level 2 :twisted:

Same. Ghorkov host with 2750 energy disintegrated under the assault of 56 Serps - actually, only 20 or so fired, but he was also distracted by a massive advancing Leonid/Hetzel/Eisenhans force with Phantoms flying aerial bombardment... Nevertheless, I concur - the Serp is awesome. Anti-EVERYTHING, but best as an anti-HS or major distraction. Gotta concur w/ Lefty on this one.

For one, Serps aren't designed to take out individual tanks; they're good at taking out things like expensive helichoppers (i.e. Hornet or Ghargoil 2), capturing power stations, eliminating flak stations in a situation of desperation, and bombarding Host Stations for an incredible amount of damage. Plus, honestly, who would ever use a Serp against a scout? A Hetzel or a well placed Eisenhans shell will solve the problem very, very quickly, without wasting 180 energy.

All hail the Serp!! -Kneels-

Edit:
Serps are good for 2 things - quick anti-air deployment at low energy cost and perhaps their greatest use: destroying power stations.
Exactly. Sniping Host Stations is a good game-ender, though, if you're fighting Resistance or Ghorkovs.

I swear, I will defend the Serp to the last word! Don't believe me, try fighting me as Taer on Contradistinction. In Lefty's words, "KEKEKEKE!"

Mykos are the race for taking down Serps, I can't deny that. Still, very few people will simply attack you with Serps - the only time I've ever directly assaulted a host station with Serps is when they have absolutely no way of counteracting it, or during a large fight. Serps need to be applied to whatever is effective for them, like any other unit - putting a Rhino up against 5 Eisenhans is never a good idea, as is pitting 30 Serps against a well-defended host station.

Anybody even know what kind of missile the serp is? As in, what's its real name?
