Hey guys,

Been playing this game for about a month. Probably played as Borg 30+ games. I'm trying to figure out how to beat the Federation if they rush warpins. Borg ships are powerful but it's very easy for federation to just repair their ships and absorb no damage during early battles. If I rush to an assimilator I don't have enough fire power to take down ships for awhile. And once warpins come..

I can play as the Federation and counter easily, but as Borg there's no way to lure out the enemy to come attack you and lose ships. I'll try to do assimilator rush and assimilate extremely aggressively, but that's the only way I can get close.

Scub rush is generally overpowered in the long run. Thanks for any tips. Please don't link the guide, lol.

Well, I guess your issue is that you try to attack into a one-basing warpin rushing fed player. If you see them doing that, just don't commit too much to attacking... try to pick off some miners, meanwhile you expand, get another energy node level and try to deny them from expanding. It's gonna be a long and exhausting game, but you should win that in the long run. Warpin rush is not a particularly strong 1v1 start. People usually do that to be borg-rush proof, wich is ok, but the borg always can choose not to rush, and trust me a borg player with good economy, stacking spheres/diamonds and getting a transmission matrix is pretty scarry for even late-game fedz. ;)

Ahhh, I see. So don't even bother rushing against that strategy. I try to always attack first because as Borg I have such a hard time defending my resource spots. My ships are so slow. I might experiment with Dod platforms and just turtle for a bit. Thanks for the tip.
