    I managed to wave 12 in my 300i, but only have 4 missiles is kind of a pain. Usually save em for the Vanduul Prime.

    Also not getting repaired/rearmed every 3 levels is kinda annoying, especially when my 300i or Hornet has a cherry red engine or wing.
    TEST = BEST

    I got to 12 with my Aurora... where do you see the points?...i only see them when i destroy vanduul... maximum is nowhere to be found.

    EDIT: Oh, i see... you have values in the blue chart... i always have it empty... it might be connected to that "Connection Lost" warning..

    Got to 11 but I've a ways to go. I am starting to envy the Hornets firepower.

    I think if I wasn't in a 300i I'd be a a level or two higher.

    Made it to level 14 in my Aurora, ran out of chaff and flares and was subsequently wasted by five missiles :(

    Abrigant wins hands down with his Aurora in wave 14. The Aurora's armor is like toilet paper compared to the Hornet's.

    The highest I've made it is Wave 11 but at that point my FPS has degraded to 15 or less and it doesn't even pick back up - I usually crash before Wave 11.

    I've never died all of my deaths (or do we have infinite lives?)

    I hit 14 just a minute ago, without dying once. Ironically, it was using a joystick (I am absolutely terribad with joysticks :/ ) Shoulda took a screeny, but wasnt thinking. oh well, maybe in two weeks when i get back home from work ill be able to hit the good ol 15.

    level 12 for me but i still have the glitch that prevents me to see my score. Any hints? I tend to get missle spammed out the wazzo when the 7 hunters come on screen.

    @AguaDeVinos
    Anytime you are alive just press ALT and you can see your score and what wave. The scoreboard when you end the simulation does not work, is bugged.

    @McKetten
    You have 3 lives but if you eject before being killed it does not count as a life taken out of the 3.

    Really? That can't be intentional can it?

    @Gullveig

    I think it is as they have spoken about this mechanics before, if you manage to eject in time which becomes quite hard to do in later waves, then you do not lose a life. It adds another mechanic to the game where you do less harm to your character if you manage to escape a few scraps sometimes, but if you do get killed and you do not manage to eject then you get penalized for it, through losing a limb or a "life" number etc.

    It is possible to get to Wave 13/14 without losing a single life or ejecting. It's just really hard to do. lol

    Think of it as risk / reward sort of thing, in a universe fighting a random player, you can eject, no longer be able to fight, lose your ship and may still be killed anyway, but your rewards would be you don't have any permanent damage do your character, or you can fight and not eject but risk dying, losing limbs, your ship but your reward would be you might win the fight, keep your ship or even capture the enemy.

    Ejecting is permanent in the Persistent Universe, you can't just respawn and continue fighting like you can in Arena Commander. Which is just a computer combat simulator not a real universe.

    I hit 12 with my 300i. The awkward keybindings are unbecoming to my playstyle. I'll likely see Lv. 15 once I can remap countermeasures, toggle enemies, and decouple mode.

    Also once we can thrust across the X and Y axis while coupled.

    I hit 8 easy with the keyboard and mouse in th 300i. Returned the borrowed joystick today and it feels.so unnatural sans stick. I can't do certain maneuvers the same way I was yesterday. Still fun, though.

    Got to 13 a few times with the stick and 300i, but wasn't trying exceptionally hard. Daughter kept coming over to ask questions and watch.

    I made it to round 0... aka... round 15 today also. I was using my X-55, playing trainer Hornet (with trainer weapons). I didn't truly feel a sense of accomplishment though... because in all honesty, round 14 was the "true" final round. Round 0/15 should have had the boss, Reaper, in it... but I'm assuming "Reaper" sensed my weakness and doubted it was worth his time to come show his face, instead his 4 Alpha's and 1 Hunter came for me... launched what felt like infinite missiles at me as I tried to hide and run inside some asteroids... then it was over.

    It's not world first though, some people have claimed to have beaten wave 15 before (example from Den).

    But good job nevertheless. :)

    It's world first with proof, anyone can claim what they like, first to post proof, saying and proving, not the same.

    is there a way to reload missiles besides ejecting? Also, is anyone else having a weird bug that you don't repair at all when it says "stand by, performing automated repairs"

    I heard a long time ago before AC was released that they would allow us to land to repair and re arm out ships on a space platform but I do not think it is implemented yet so the answer to first question is no, but maybe later on.

    Yes to the 2nd question, I never get any automated repairs in between waves even when it says it on sound. Probably bugged.

    I was part-way through wave 11 with my 300i when my game crashed (also was getting tired since it's 12:26AM.) Don't know my actual score because the game crashed.

    Got to Wave 5 with Mouse & Keyboard.

    You can check your score and wave anytime by pressing ALT while your alive, the end scoreboard is bugged.
