Summary0020268: Fleet ship counter to bubble shields
DescriptionI think we need a fleet ship that specializes against bubble shields.

I kinda like a swarmer "mob" ship that does bonus damage based on how many of the cap of ships is firing at a target (on top of bonus damage to bubble shields)

Swarmer seems a good type in any case to contrast with the starship counter to bubble shields (i.e. siege starship)

I like the idea...also adds to the whole Swarmer deal. I'll...have a think about it once I've tested the new Siege a bit.

This'd also give the AI something *terrifying* to have!

I'll take it then. See if I can put one together that people'll like.

"Needler" honestly might be a good name for this unit. (Bubbles countered by needles)
Don't seem to be using this name for anything right now anyway

Like popping a balloon? I'd be...a bit concerned on people being confused from Classic, but then again...Lightning is now Tesla, existing Needlers are Pikes, etc.

a fair concern, but yeah that was the connection i had in mind.

Other possible names: porcupine, stinger, stingray, viper, javelin, lance/lancer, cleaver, slasher, spike, drill, impaler, gouger,...um... shish kabob, penetrator, poker, hurts-donut,... ok running out of ideas
