Again, your argument doesn't hold weight. Forget the Shadow. Forget the LWG. The video is to show how BLOBS act in DURIAN.
Your argument is against the Shadow and LWG. Then, you are saying the option everyone has is to ONLY get Blade. Because, that's the best option for blobs. So, basing on your argument alone... EVERYONE should save for a Blade. If, they don't, they are stupid. Is this correct?
Also, they have to have Target Painter, Concussion Spheres, Void Tentacles, and Kinetic Phase Blade. Because, that's how you did it. That's the ONLY way to do it. (sarcasm)(Also, taking you literally, like you are still taking my video literally).
Concussion Spheres - is a rare drop. Unless you save for a tanker or pray to the RNG gods to get from a POD.
Void Tentacles - Drop from BLOBS. Again, they can pray to the RNG gods to get it from a POD.
Target Painter - is available on the Carrier-X121. And, yet again, players can pray for RNG with a POD.
Your way... the way you say is the BEST way. Will make players buy 3 ships at the cost of 9,192 flux.. OR they can PRAY to the RNG gods for excellent PODS.
Tanker - 2600 ~ Concussion Spheres
X-121 - 2790 ~ Target Painter
Blade - 3800 ~ Kinetic Phase Blade
Total - 9,190

Last time I checked new players aren't making 10,000 flux by the time they reach level 100.
Not everyone WANTS to fly a Blade. That should be obvious to you by now. While, your way (which isn't even an original way) my be very efficient... there are many ships in the game that can kill blobs with the right tools.
I've seen players use LWG, Plasma Gun, and Stickies. I've even witnessed players use Siphon (TheSwole).
The point of my video was not to show how to kill blobs with a Shadow or LWG. I just used those tools in the video. Please... I encourage you to watch the video once more. See, how the point of it is to show others how BLOBS act and not how I kill blobs. In actual fact.. I kill blobs in the open with my Shadow. But, I'm not going to show that in a video because I don't have to. It's not important how I kill blobs. And that's not the reason why I made the original video.
Most players can't solo a blob until after level 100. After, they have reached Fulzar and possibly gone into Vorsran. Sure, there are players that have killed blobs below level 100. But, the majority of players need to get the fundamentals down before they can just head off to Fulzar and murder whatever they want.
Did you happen to watch my play through at all? Did you see how I was teaching the fundamentals of the game in that play through? Sadly, while I was in the middle of recording that; the developers completely changed the game. Most of what I showed cannot be done by new players to the game. BUT, the fundamentals of what I showed can still teach players the basics of the game. Thus, this Blob video that I made was just showing the FUNDAMENTALS of blobs in Durian.
