Who would win?: 300 tribals vs 8 mortars (pictures)
« on: January 07, 2018, 02:34:36 PM »

My giant colony spawned a giant tribal raid, and I decided to document the results.


The first volley cut a wide swath, killing dozens outright and injuring about half the remainder.

Still, they pressed on.


The second volley scored some nice hits, tearing through fresh and injured ranks alike. After the first few explosions, the tribals decided they had prepared enough, and attacked.



Seconds later, they broke ranks.



The carnage was so concentrated, I was only able to save about 20 of them. Still, a good haul. The colony is always hiring.



Easy cleanup.

But how could a mass infantry charge against a prepared defensive position backed by modern artillery possibly fail?  It just doesn't make sense.

Clearly they tribes just need to send MORE men.  Preferably enough so that you reach your pre-set kill limit and shut down.

Incredibly slow, snail's pace. Especially during raids.

No mods, vanilla Randy on second hardest difficulty.

Wow. I wasn't aware that you can get more than 100 colonists in vanilla... Wasn't the default limit of Randy 50 or something?...
