so, what is it that drives you?
for me, i am thinking very internally, what is my captain, and ship supposed to do in battle? and secondly, how can i best maximize that with my current team?
for me, and some of you may want to call bs on this, but those of you who know me know i fly very defensively. full shields and aux on my tac bug about 80% of the time.....
but why? why would CaptainHorizon as Damian fly fully defensively in most matches?
because i want my team to succeed!
if my engie cruiser is dead in the water... who is gonna heal me? *here goes a full aux tss2 and tac team from my tac bug*
if my sci sci is dead in the water......who is going to nuke the target i want to kill? how about a full aux hazzards 1 and a delta for you......
so, what drives you morally in this game? personal fame? notariety? the highest damage or kill count? best healing even?
for me, its the bond we form as teammates. pug or premade the same. the willingness, and drive to achieve what we are capable of.
win or lose.
where are you at? morally in this game?
have fun, kill bad guys
I play a healing role, as a science and engineer. For me, the most enjoyable parts of PvP play are as follows:
- The delight of teamwork
- Cleverness and strategy: I love science esp. because I like being a chess player not a bulldozer operator.
- Healing: Again, I enjoy supporting the dmg dealers. Plus, healing requires strategy and timing as well, characteristics of the game which are enjoyable to me.
Regarding your initial question about how morality affects gameplay, there are a number of items (P2W consoles, danubes/siphons, etc.) that i choose not to use. Plus, I think it is very important to honor and respect opponents, even if they are not the best players.
