Catching Up With Michael - Why Did You Pick PHR?

108 Comments

We're talking with Michael about why he chose to play as the PHR this weekend for Dropfleet Commander. Of course there's some tactical thinking going on here but...

...will this survive the coming games over the weekend?

I have a PHR army in Dropzone, mostly because of the background story, I couldn’g get my head around the walker aesthetic.

But the ships did the thing. It brings back so many pictures in my head from the Banner of the Stars (Seikai no Senki). I’m gonna go for a deep, bluish hue of grey on the plates, brown or maybe rust metallic on the inner parts, and some nice greenish lights on the manouvre fins. heck, I’m gonna start right now 😀

I love the look and background of the PHR and play them in both games but might do some Shaltari for a change very soon.

Finally someone admits that it is all about the Meta. it is great for someone to just go with playing it as a game and not ooh pretty.

Part of me wants to paint these up as space whales

The PHR do look nice, but UCM is my first love.

The PHR will become my second, once i have sorted out the UCM.

Great to see B5 fans. This makes me want to watch the series again.

There is just something about those sleek lines of the PHR that are just so sexy.

PHR is not my first thought. but with HARD HITTING stuff, will have to look at them more in depth.

To quote Jeremy Clarkson ‘Powwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaa!’

And oh yes, Hawk must be a fan of Geiger, between these sleek PHR and the various looks on the Scourge ships.

PHR are quite pretty, a solid second choice.

Yeah… PHR was what got me into Dropzone Commander when it first released… Can’t wait to build a PHR fleet.

PHR are very cool aesthetically. Not sure about them though. Hoping for a Resistance fleet at some point.

I doubt even Dave can find a fluff reason for the Resistance to find a fleet of old civilian space ships, on to which they duck tape a few guns

The PHR players need to stop reminding me how incredble those ships are dammit..

I cant afford another fleet

Thanks 🙂 didn’t do to well. It’s a great system complex but fun and there’s a lot of destruction. God I hate Scourge

PHR are my fave so far too.Don’t forget the calibre rule.It lowers the lock value for some weapons against specific targets.I forgot about it several times in my first games.Makes those broadsides even more deadly.

Not thought of Giger-esque, but makes sense, they were already my second DFC faction now even more reason to!

I like the nice and clean ship design .. an airbrush would help massively painting them though
