General

The Midgard Carrier is a low level, tier two Miner Rebellion carrier. Its blueprints are found in VSEC Overwatch Fleets levels 30-45. It is currently the only carrier available to players outside of an event reward.

It doesn't have any standard weapon slots, and instead uses squadrons that can be equipped in its squadron slots to attack ships from afar. These squadrons can be destroyed but can target any ship in its scramble range, and will continually regenerate upon destruction.

Despite its significant disadvantages with other carriers, this ship is incredibly valuable to lower leveled players progress to become stronger. The key advantage provided of this carrier is the agility field, a critical support field that is very useful particularly for Venom battleships needed for kiting and destroying higher level VEGA fleets.


Strategy and Setup

The primary purpose of the Midgard carrier is to speed up allied ships. This is an advantage that many low level players may need if they want to defeat high level VEGA fleets during events.

Advantages:

The Midgard Carrier, while weak comparatively, is good in low level combat ranging from level 20-40. It has a mass similar to a Condor frigate, and its agility field proves useful in outrunning opponents, which also gives Rancor battleships a chance to stand against fleets of Exodus cruisers, given you have the accurate long range weaponry and thrusters.

Its squadrons can provide a significant range of engagement, attacking enemy ships far outside their weapon's range, drawing away fire and inflicting damage.

When supported by Exodus cruisers, it essentially becomes a poor man's version of a fleet of Revelation cruisers supporting a Ragnarok carrier, which is quite powerful.

Players lacking Ragnarok carriers can use a Midgard carriers to support their Venom battleships for destroying VEGA fleets. Ensure that the Venom battleships have fusion thrusters, at least one stasis weapon and long range, accurate weapons. This fleet setup can attack low range enemy ships from afar and cripple their speeds with your stasis weapons such as NET torpedo or Arrestor beam. The agility field is very useful for your battleships to remain out of VEGA warships weapon's range.

The carrier is also the easiest to obtain since it is a blueprint reward, and the only carrier that can be obtained so.

Disadvantages:

Midgard carriers seriously lack firepower with only two slots for squadrons, which makes them unreliable for destroying fleets by themselves and overall. It is the most fragile carrier, it cannot survive concentrated fire and it gets destroyed relatively quickly, making it require supporting ships at all times to avoid destruction.

The carrier also has a built in 20% reduction in scramble range compared to its event reward cousins, making its two squadrons that much weaker.

The Midgard Carrier also has low mass for a carrier, meaning you will either greatly sacrifice shields, health, or damage. Higher level squadrons cannot be used without sacrificing health and protection, and vica versa.

Trivia

  • It is the first and only carrier to have only two squadron slots.
  • It has the same support field as the Ragnarok and Dominion Carriers, despite its shorter support range.
  • It is the first and only carrier obtainable through blueprints so far.
  • It is the only carrier with 80% scramble range.
  • It is the weakest carrier in the game as it has the least health, mass, and cargo of all obtainable carriers.
  • Players have jokingly referred to the Midgard as the "Midtard", or "S***gard", due to it being a relatively weak carrier.
