if you are fighting a cruiser then ignore him and go for another target, he will not be able to kill you as its dps is rubbish. ofc you can fly and turn faster than it and so you can always just fly out of range.

if you are fighting a escort and you are on a dps match, then use your RSP and it become a stalemate for 15s but after that its games on (ofc his RSP will run out before your and so the advantage is yours).
My beef with isnt that I cant handle a RSP using cruiser.. I dislike it because its reduced to this "mandatory" no-skill skill.. Its "hit a button and laugh at them skill", you dont even need to properly spec it to be effective, and there is no real difference between its different levels.

There are many ways to combat someone (ab)using it, shielddraining abilities like Tykens, B:TSS etc - The other no-skill "hit a button" skill SNB - wait it out and so on.

Bottomline, I think it is too powerful, compared to the ease of which it is used, and the thing it does..

To see what I mean, grab a array equipped ship, and fire off B:FAW in the middle of a Fedball.. Often youll see 3-4-5 green blobs pop up within seconds like people are thinking "Oh, I lost 5% shield, I better press this button labelled "Haha - I am invulnerable"

Multiple RSPs is never mandatory for the shipclass with the best healing capabilities bar none.. If you cannot survive 2-3 ships in a cruiser using "normal" skills, you are doing something horrible wrong.

Ironically, the people that use it as their primary defenseskill, tend to be *very* bad at real cruiser tanking, and thus tends to QQ the most when they get nuked.

I dislike the skill, but in honesty I dont care too much about it either, because the majority spamming it are utter jokes in PvP anyways. I just laugh when my Raptor nukes their RSP, their shield and their hull or my escort tanks their puny retalitory fire without using my own RSP - Then its just a question of letting them damage you enough for a huge bonus on GDF when it expires, and let lose with your primary buffs.. Gotta love a AP:B/AP:O/AP:A/Tactical Fleet/<10% GDF souped up BOL3, can you say "60k+ Crits"?

I always thought you are objective person Superchum, using demagogic lines is not common for you.
He changed. Maybe it's too much time spent on the forums or so. Frustration. Stress. Might not even have anything to do with the game. Maybe he just didn't like his old internet persona.

I have a hard time believing that anyone who uses the word "chillax" in a statement is meaning anything too rude by it, lol.

I have one RSP, and it's used mostly as an emergency button... when everything else is on cd and i need 15 seconds to get my resists going again... I simply don't have room for more than one RSP. Too many other goodies to put in those slots...

Exactly this, if you learn how to fly your ship, you should only ever need one RSP, and thats only in case of "HOLY POO I HAVE NO SHIELDS"

In which case its ok to use as my afore mentioned friend stated.
