K.O. in 1 hit ****es me off pls explain
So im playing the campaign. On a Romulan mission with my Defiant.
So the I.R.W. Xatos Reman war-bird De-cloaks. As i enter weapon range i divert power to for shields and activate Emerg power to shield + science team 1 (total over 3000 shield power)
The war-bird turned toward my defiant like a SHARK turns on a dime (not even possible for that ship) opens fire.. and blew me up...... in 1 shot..
He proceeded to blow me up UNDER 10 seconds, if not his first volley then his second, 4 more times before i got lucky and destroyed him. I couldn't even approach him.
My Defiant Defense:
Shield = Covert shield array MK 8 Cap X 2 total 5,465 shield strength.
1 tritanium plating and 1 polyduranium plating. Total +18.5 Kinetic and energy
+ i activated 3,000 shields with my science station..
hull strength: total of 25,000
So add my Hull + shields + science team For a total of: 33,465 hit points + 18.5 armor
The I.R.W. Xatos did that much damage to K.O. me in 1 hit? several times? o_O
Heavy Plasma Torpedo volley...
I've had a similar problem with Romulan ships - they hurl out a volley of HPT that eat your shields like Cookie Monster eats cookies. Then... BLAMMO... the next one in the volley obliterates you. Previously these green balls of extreme death were easily stopped by targetting them and blowing them away. But, with the new "most shots miss by a mile" system - this is no longer an easy thing to accomplish.
I've found deploying mines to be helpful - if you're not on cooldown and can hit the deploy hotkey in time - as the GBED tend to home in on these. Running like hell and evasive manouvers can sometimes get you out of range - as can turning and legging it towards the Romulan vessel. Heavy Plasma Torpedoes don't seem to care who they blow the hell out of and, more than once, I've made a Romulan captain eat his own torpedo:D
But I agree that they are just a little... overpowered!
If you ever get caught in a tractor beam and have 3 massive torpedoes coming at you? This is what you do,
Fire At Will(Don't matter what level)
I hope this works out for you, good luck!
Believe it or not using a cruiser this has never been a problem for me.
But yeah, those high yeild plasma torpedos need to be shot down or you're going to get squashed like a bug. Especially with the limitations of the Escorts.
its not the tractor that had me.
what heppend was as SOON as i enter weapons range it Fire and im done. Im like 9 KM away and it fires. Tracor wasnt even an issue
I just dont get how a Romulan ship can do 34,000 damage in less than 3 seconds. Stupid. I stood stronger against BORG then this Romlan ship. I beat these things with my CONSTITUTION refit. It hit me with SAME weapons and my constitution took it like a MAN!
I see tons of people flying the Galaxy now, esp the one with the Third engine. IS that a good ship?
IS the Sovereign in this game a Good ship as well? Im pretty much done with escort. Going cruiser now.
The Galaxy Dreadnought(A.K.A. Dreadnought Cruiser)? I figure it's a pretty good ship, but I get mixxed reviews on its usefulness. Since it can mount Dual cannons and has that Phaser Lance. It's a Cruiser that thinks it's an Escort. For cruisers if you have a rear admrial... The Excelsior Retrofit, Advanced Research Vessle Retrofit (Nebula Cruiser), or Exploration Retrofit (Galaxy) are all good. The Exploration one is good for vice admrials too.
Still Escorts are really great damage dealers, but they don't take it very well as a trade off. Cruisers being slow and tankish soak it up more easily. So really the only time you need to worry is when you face down something that can put out a lot of damage really fast, with an Escort that is.
