So I've been using my Vesta ( Aventine Tactical Variant and loving it I might add.

But I always come about 2nd or 3rd place in that fleet action with my Aventine, I have it set up as Full aux cannons IE Aux dps setup.

I got this crazy thought to try out my moth balled galaxy Retrofit, so I pulled it out of space dock loaded as a beam boat with a quantum in the front and a Tricobalt in the back the rest all dual beams in front and single beams on the back.

Only two tact abilities Beam Overload and High yield Torpedo.

So yea I Came first in the fleet action, i'm not sure if its based on dps but I couldn't believe it. (I joking said to myself I will make a touph galaxy class when I was fitting it out lol)

Just thought id share this weird experience as I know the Galaxy Retrofit is pretty much as weak as a Teir 5 ship gets.

Congrats on coming in 1st.

Your the third captain that I have read about to do so with this ship!

That being said, I have seen a few Dreadnoughts and retrofits do well even in PVP. One in particular is just vicious in Ker'rat. You can check some of the videos on YouTube for further inspiration

While DPS plays a factor, other factors like destroying tholians/fragments/any heals you use on other people and yourself all factor into who wins

For the CE event atleast ^^

Yea I was pretty impressed with myself to be honest, I still cant believe it.

This experience makes me want to trade my Vesta in for say an Tactical Oddessy or a much tougher cruiser.

not sure..........

i got 1st twice with my gal x, so no big deal, the reason behind this i think is that some player don't master their escort, there is also some instance where you only play with cruiser and some are not build for dps

The thing is, we really don't know *what* exactly is counted towards the score outside of DPS for this event. There is anecdotal evidence that healing gives good points, but there is no evidence/documentation that any additional consideration is given to killing shards/Tholians outside of the DPS applied.

Given that the legacy Fleet actions are pretty much ENTIRELY have their scores based on DPS/damage (BtP,SB24, Gorn Invasion, Big Dig, etc) and Cryptic's proven record at being kings of the copypasta, it follows that CE would be no different.

As for the OP - congrats! You are at a disadvantage in that ship, sadly. Perhaps you had crappy teammates?

I've only come in first once with my tactical escort (heavy escort carrier), but I get first about 90% of the time with my engineer atrox carrier.

ditto my terribly geared klingon ship came in 1st before due to being with a pile of people who were worst. I think it took us 20-30 mins to drop the crystal...
By terribly geared I mean Mk X rare weapons I got for like 10k EC a pop, and cheap consoles I got for similar With 1 tac Boff with terrible skills that don't even help the weapons much like beam fire at will with only 1 beam weapon .
