so what's the current version?
EDIT: and if those are the right stats(for the version I'm playing), then how is it that the kraken can kill ships with higher stats?
Here's how combat works at the moment, IIRC:
Each combat round, a random object is chosen to be the attacker, and a random object of a different affiliation from the attacker is chosen to be attacked. If the attacker has a damage meter of 0 (ships) or a defense meter of 0 (planets), nothing happens, and we move on to the next round. If the attacked object is a ship, damage will be allocated first to decreasing its shields, then to decreasing its structure if there's any damage left over, and if structure reaches 0, the ship is destroyed and removed from combat. If the attacked object is a planet, the damage will be allocated first towards decreasing its defense, then decreasing its shields if there's any damage left over, then decreasing its construction if there's any more damage left over.
So it's entirely possible for that Great Kraken to fire off 4 shots before your ship fires off 2.
