Quite the contrary, I would have to be an idiot not to know who Mechengg is, which is why I consider several of his statements to be absolutely absurd.
All utterly absurd statements. Assault base may be a viable option, as I am not familiar with them I can’t say exactly what they are or how they differ, that’s not the point. He didn’t say Assault would be a better option, it may very well be, I can’t answer that particular question. His position was that flying on Invader or some other similar base would be utterly worthless, and I completely disagree with that.
My point is simply that if you can’t test drive a dragon on invader or some other similar base, and get at least a basic idea of what that dragon might be capable of, then it really doesn’t matter what base you put it on. Because if you can’t extrapolate at least some useful information from a basic test flight, then giving you a more “realistic” base isn’t going to simplify that process for you. Yes, a more realistic base will potentially provide additional information. But his point was that he CANNOT get ANY useful information out of a test flight on invader. And my point is simply if that provides absolutely zero value for him, then the assault base or any other base for that matter isn’t going to help him either. Because while yes it has more tower variety, its the same basic process used to extrapolate that data. To say he is incapable of gathering absolutely any useful data with the invader base, is the same thing to me as saying that he is incapable of extrapolating any useful data with any base. Thus my comment that it doesn’t matter what base we offer him at that point, since by his own statements he is apparently lacking in the necessary skills to put any base to good use.
