Does initiative do anything?/combat errors

The defending fleet looks like this:

Cutlass 500000
Corsair 150000
Thief 25000
Buccaneer 50000
Pirate 50000
Rogue 10000
Marauder 10000
Ironclad 1500

My attacking fleet looks like this:

Phantom 2022088
Illusion 59908

Thiefs have an initiative of 6 and Buccaneers have an initiative of 20. Those are the only ships he has that target fighters. Furthermore, both are steal ships.

Phantoms have an initiative of 3.

Based on initiative, his buccaneers shouldn't have any opportunity to shoot as they will have been destroyed by the time it is their turn to fire.

His thiefs do enough damage to destroy/steal 487500 phantoms.

Now for the actual results.

Phantoms:

291367 killed
1519993 stolen

All my Illusions were destroyed.

Now there seems to be an error both in the way initiative works and in the type of damage done.

What is up with this?

All stats taken from the speedgame stats page

Damn you're right. Sent the wrong fleet.

Regardless, this isn't the first time that I've noticed initiative related errors and it doesn't mitigate the fact that my ships should have been stolen, not destroyed.

Thieves don't steal.

Possible, but clicking "Stats" in the speedgame gives you the speedgame stats, not the r24 stats.

Re: Does initiative do anything?/combat errors

Just a quick note to posters: this is the Strategy Forum - its a nice and happy place. Please refrain wherever possible from abusing people who ask questions. Whilst it seems that the original poster might have his stats confused, it is not acceptable to abuse him for asking a question here. Not everyone is as awesome as you are - please consider that in future.
