poor tss-x... i mean this is still one of the most flavorful and logical abilities in the game. now comes the "beam-me-in-scotty-fix-in-0,1seconds-while-you-fix-my-hull-and-improve-my-ship-for-30seconds!"...
Theres this one fleet that accuses everyone of laming TSS against them. It's particularly annoying because THEY use tss themselves. The old excuse "you only won because of exploits" is dumb, stale, and boring. Whats funny is that I've facerolled their premades in pugs before, thats how bad they are. That fleet knows who they are, maybe if they stopped accusing people of exploiting and would actually bother to improve they would see better results .
182 doesn't even use TSS anymore, our escorts push insanely high DPS and don't need it to kill someone. 3 seconds is the longest you can last against one of our escorts without getting healed/rsp'd up. Why bother with TSS when you can push enough DPS (with a single person) to overpower extend shields 3? When the escorts combine attacks, you better hope that the healers have their heals off cooldown because that target is going to be Vaporized.
I'm going to stick my neck out on the chopping block here and say that I'll be glad when a single escort can't kill a cruiser in 3 seconds. I've got two friends in my fleet who are a couple of the best escort pilots in the game. And I honestly feel sorry for anybody in their sites. They rarely realize how much damage they're taking until it's too late. The smart player hits RSP before even the first shot hits them. It's sad when ES doesn't even work against one of these pilots, let alone two.
