Soloing a Leviathan

In case anyone is wondering if this is possible, I'm happy to tell you that yes, yes it is. All hail avalons!

Greenwall is the Avalon MASTER. No question about it. :)

That's one thing I'd like to see... like flying a fighter to cover the bomber...

We should make that a badge of some sort.

Make it a robo-grub with a mushroom cloud coming out of it's back. Hive Nuker!

Guess I better plow the back forty and get to farming avalons a lot faster....

It should be an image of RAID.

Yeah, I used to do this back in the day. As I remember it, you boost in at top speed and slam it with rockets all simultaneously: done in a Ragnarok. But we used to do that in groups of three or four, so that might not be accurate to the contemporary method of soloing one.

But try this method with a HAC and you're out of luck ;)

We've been doing this vs HACs in the border skirmishes for months now. From what Greenwall said, this is a lot more difficult.

HACs have less shield strength than levis, and greenwall needed to kill all the queens in grey and keep them dead for the shield recharge to be manageable.

SilentWave, comparing group swarming a Levi to soloing one with avalons is like me telling Burt Rutan I have experience with rockets, having launched a couple models as a kid.

HACs have less shield strength than levis,
Only by 50k, and the amount of nukes we've been tossing at the HACs are way more than overkill to a Levi's shield. You're correct though that the issue is the queens. Also, HACs tend to stay put a little better than the big space bug, and border skirmish Tridents aren't all suicidal.
