First of all, I am a returning captain and would like to say hello to all the fellow captains - the ones who stuck around and new ones! I also need to say I would have never left but cryptic made it impossible for me to renew my subscription so I had to wait till the game became f2p to start playing again at all, but nwm, it's great beeing back!
The other thing is I just played a couple of quick pvp matches and my damage sucked! I was in awe to see another old Raptor captain dishing out half a mil damage while I sucked at 150k. I'm actualy asking for your help, my build remained exactly the same as before and I made half of what I used to do, or even less. I'll share my build and please tell me what I'm doing wrong:
tac officer - raptor
tac buffs: tacteam1, apb1, apo1, crf3, target W subs. 2, bo, thy3
dmg equipment: 4 disruptor induction coiles, 3 forward dual heavies, forward and back quantum, 2 back beam banks
I filled all which has to do with damage completely out in my build, so that shouldn't be a problem and I always have max power in weapons. However I have dmg resistance items on eng slots, are some other important for high damage?
My strategy revolved always about having maximal constant damage and putting out consistent high damage on a single opponent. I never considered imba alfa strike builds, they break my immesion feeling in sto. ))
So if anyone actualy understood what I wrote above, please do help me not to suck so increadibly hard as I did today. ))
i agree with roach, give us your whole layout and what points you have in the appropriate skills and we'll comment no prob.
but in all honesty if you remember yourself being more effective, you may just need a lil time to get back into the swing of things. heck, even with the patch last night.....EVERYTHING moves much slower and it took a few minutes to get my timing back.
