And how'd that work out for them?

I feel bad for the lowbies when I see them in the fleet mark events as well too. I try and use my ship the best I can (like when I'm in my Armitage I will often assign my fighters to escort one of the lowbies to assist in his DPS since the vast majority of my DPS comes from my cannons anyway).

As people said, you don't want to be mad at them. It's not their fault and I don't want to gate it since I like bortjinx's general concept of the fleet/group all working together, regardless of rank.

But there needs to be more done to help compensate for the fact that low tier ships just cannot handle the number of ships that assault the base, due not to the captain, but due to the lack of consoles, weapon hardpoints and BOff slotting.

At the same time, you don't want to nerf it either and make it a turkey shoot for VAs.

I don't know what the solution is, but it is a problem.

500 years in the future and we still look like schmucks when getting our ID photos taken...
