We are trying to test the AI... so if you play in beta, please do not bomb or capture planets. You may kill all the enemy ships you like, but leave the planets alone.

Ship Testing Update... - Posted on May 20th, 2008 - 14:53 by Mr Black
The following ship classes are all ready for testing in the current beta:
We would appreciate players not using any of the other ship classes, as they have not yet been balanced to work under the layout rules.
Reminder regarding ship testing - Posted on May 10th, 2008 - 17:53 by Doran
The equipment layouts for all cruisers, dreadnoughts, and stations have not yet been adjusted for 484 balance-wise.
Barring any significant bugs, any "combat testing" with or otherwise involving those ships is essentially irrelevant at this time.
Food for thought: just because you can grab a cruiser or dreadnough does not mean that you should. The same thing happened during 483's beta, smaller ships (scouts, destroyers) werent tested properly because players kept rushing to fly dreadnoughts.
