Was in a pug PVP group and the leader demanded we assist the cruisers? From my experiences you focus fire by assisting the dps aka escorts. I was flying an escort
You can keep them targetted and heal them as needed and you focus fire more efficiently.
I was told...It was okay to target more then 1 target and that I was a muppet. My reply was that I like Fozzy Bear most.
Another player during some RA pvp today asked how you healed another player in pvp..........
Played another fed/fed pvp and was the only escrt on both sides........took 38 minutes or so to get 15 kills. I think everyone of them had x3 of that darn shield cheese spell and was not really wanting to pvp.
Was like watching the elderly fight with sticks and in wheel chairs...
I don't really feel like it matters what type of ship you assist as long as they are quick to select a target, call it out, and move away if a better target shows up (i.e. original targets goes into tank mode, has support, and the previously popped Escort is returning to the fray at full impulse).
I certainly don't see how it would be better to treat the cruiser as your primary DD though. There are some cases where the pilot of a cruiser was simply a better player than the escort/dpsers. I suppose if you can get your opponents to focus fire consistently on a cruiser then it really is more efficient to just unload all of your buffs and healing on them but what opponent is going to consistently attack a cruiser when an escort is within range?
I actually agree that it's ok to target more than one opponent but only in limited situations. For example, if you see the rest of your team working over one guy pretty good but their hull is doing an impression of a yo yo then it's probably a good idea to harass the healer(s) a bit while the majority of your team focus fires. Overall though, focus firing > all.
Cruisers online? I feel you. Green used to be my favorite color but now it just makes meh agry! Eventually this Galaxy X fad should blow over and maybe we'll see some more variety again but for right now stick to FvK. There is always a BoP or 5 around, for better or for worse, lol.
I know it gets frustrating but keep on rantin' on! ^^
Why do you believe a "QQ"er would keep playing PvP if he had to win and doesn't do that easily?
No, changing the way marks are gained won't help here. It will just mean that people stay in B'Tran.
well could give them 1 mark for trying....... and make the pvp gear better then the pve gear .....
my point is it dont matter if you win or loose in this game and its eaven worse u cant fail in pve at all so every pve player comes into pvp for the 1st time with kirk complex thinking they will kill everything cause thats what they are used to...
