Just tryed raptor, since a dude said that a bop doenst equal an escort, same result, whats is wrong with my setup, are the MK X ANTIPROTON first generation (purple) nerfed;
i used pattern alpha - pattern omega - focus fire and tactical fleet buff; and still this i cannot beat a single escort on 1 to 1; all my weapon's are MK x antirpoton, thinking of deleting this noob klingon character, it might be bug or something, but all my feds are working perfectly ... its frustrating.
To play devil's advocate for a moment, when you say "a difference of x%," it's a percentage of one of the things you're comparing. 50% and 51% is a difference of 2%, not 1%.
In this case, (.83/100)*(.83-.71). Still, that's a difference of only 14.5% not any number the OP has used, but it doesn't matter. The numbers have no context. 0.71% and 0.83% of what, exactly?
with evasive maneouver; i travel a distance of 6.8 km more with my escort, less then my bop over nearly 30 km total.
for damage, with all the same buff and console, i do 29% more damage with my escort, ok a dude mention the bop is not the match of the escort; the raptor is, well same thing appened, i got nearly 25% less damage done with an raptor over my escort;
i got 2 account; me and girlfriend so i took the escort and took my bop and raptor to make the test,
i travel less distance when i wanna leave a fight; so i get easely rejoin by my little feds friend, and i do alot less damage on 1 on 1 with any escort......dont you all say you havent noticed that .... or i got nerfed, eprsonally, wich i think is a little ******; dont you think.
