Scorpion Fighter Pets any good?
 
I'm evaluating new candidates for my spiffy Atrox and want to know if they're worth the while compared to the usual Peregrines, Danubes, Deltas and Stalkers.

they are like peregrines.
if you use plasma or disruptor than they will be really good (former because your consoles would affect them, latter because your proc would).

esentially they are peregrines with plasma. tbh I wouldnt really know the difference between the peregrines and scorpions dps, and for my vesta it doesnt rly matter, I just like them because they are easier to keep track of than the peregrines, because they have these nice blueish engine trail

I can tell you that in my last CSE run they dealt 600 dps, but this wont help you, since I barely used them, things were going down too fast :D

dual cannon on pets sucks
 
Dual cannon on pets are useless because they always turn around their target and never are in the fire angle for dual cannon.
It would be better to replace the damn dual cannon with a turret.

And yet everyone likes to hate on Stalkers, which have a Tetryon turret.

A kind soul once showed me why I didn't want pure fighter pets. We went into a 1v1 with Armitages where he had Danubes and I had fighters (Peregrines IIRC). My fighters only added a bit of dps whereas his Danubes kept locking me in infernal tractor beams as well as adding dps. I kept losing because of them. His point was well made and I now run Danubes!

PVP is a completely different game than PVE and the sooner everybody realizes this the better off we'll be. In PVE, fighters do fine.

On topic; I tried the first level Scorpions and found them lacking compared to basic To'duj fighters (carbon copy of Peregrine). The bleed through from plasma wasn't enough to offset the DPS hit from using a slower firing torpedo. I expect the ultra-rare tier 5 Scorpions to fare much better. Let ya know in a week. :D

The elite scorpions are worth it as they have heavy plasma torpedoes. If you get even half, which is very easy, to fire the heavy plasma torpedoes then you are more than set.

I put 2 hangers of elite scorpion fighters on my recluse, they manage 5-6k dps independent of the damage my actual ship does in STFs. They're amazing.

only get the elite ones the lower tier ones aren't really worth wasting ur rommie marks and dil on, the elite one are awesome
