Mechanics

The Drenkend Carrier is a hardy ship with a huge crew - and they need them! They can send out boarding parties that will chase down and shoot at enemy ships. Once they’re deployed, they’re incredibly difficult to outrun, so your opponent had better watch out!

Their boarding parties are made even more dangerous thanks to their primary weapon, the De-energizer bolt. This weapon drains energy from any ship that it hits, causing them to become paralyzed temporarily, which is not a good situation to be in when you’ve got a bunch of enemy units coming for you!

The Drenkend Carrier’s weaknesses lie in its low maneuverability and lackluster top-speed. But, if you can get past that and master deploying your crew and draining energy from your enemies, you’ll become a force to be reckoned with.
