You lack even a basic understanding of the game mechanics. Message me @hurleybird in game if you want some help.

Good. Now, read below

I wasn't nor am I now in a tirade. I went into an indepth explenation of my thoughts and opinon. Understand the difference before you come after me.

PS:
If you want to harden your shields, try this:
Emergency power to shields > Rotate shield frequency (if engineer) OR Transfer Shield Strength

Quick shield balancing?
Tac Team (any grade)

You want to shoot (burst) someone out of the sky?
Get an escort
Attack Pattern Alpha > Attack Pattern Omega / Beta > Beam Overload > Cannon Rapid Fire > High Yield

Stack, stack, stack abilities.

This goes double when you have teammates. Stack extend shields + tac team + transfer shield strength on a teammate and he'll thank you.

Coordinate with another escort for alpha strike? Yes please.

Learn by doing. I will happily target your ship every chance I get to help you learn the hard way.

PPS:
If you level up a KDF captain and put him in a carrier, I will happily target that with my Fed. Even though she's an engineer if she's respecced into escorts she WILL shoot you down as you are now. And if an engineer / escort can shoot you down, Kahless help you when facing very skilled tac / defiant pilots.
Also understand I am not in a fleet that pvp's nor do I use any kind of voice chat. Which I know also helps in wining matches. I play in pvp matches to work on skill and the ship of course. Thats why I waited after my last rant to approach this community with a calm and very well I thought methodology of why I felt the way I do and present a view pt. NO matter if its shared or rebuffed I put it out there. Thanks for your input.

The number of pvp matches where you make colorful remarks in zone chat are too numerous to count. I did not come after you by reading this post alone. You've been ranting about klingons for quite some time now. Did you expect a warm and friendly hello from the very klingons you've accused of cheating or being favored by the devs?

I suggest, at the very least, getting a defiant.

Stay cloaked for a good while, and just observe. See how many buffs and debuffs each player has? Look at how he stacks certain buffs. How he fights defensively/offensively. Did he win or lose? What did his opponent do?

This is not a game about gear; it is not world of gearcraft.

Concerning carriers, i would advise you to go on observing how they fight. There are plenty of bad carrier pilots out there who were once fed captains but thought the carrier was OP. So, they switched sides, and are now getting walloped by their former faction.

Likewise there are good carrier pilots who really know what their ship can and cannot do.

So here is the lay out of my ship.. I have been toying around with other ships.. but I use the same gear.

Quantum Torpedo MRK VIII [Acc] [DMG] x2

Transphasic Torpedo MRK X AFT section


Polorized Deflector Dish MRK X
Super Cooled Combat Impulse Engine MRK X
Dielectric Oscillation Resilient Shields MRK X

Engineering Consoles:
Ablative Hull Armor MRK VIII (+21 vs Phaser, Disruptor, Plasma,Tetryon Dmg resist)
Diburnium Hull Plating MRK X (+32 vs Phaser and Disruptor DMG Resist)
Ablative Hull Armor MRK VII (+17 vs Phaser, Disruptor, Plasma, Tetryon Dmg resist)
Polydurainum Hull Armor MRK VII (+12 vs Kenitic and all other Beam Dmg resist)

Science Consoles:
Halon System MRK X (+16 Hazard Emitters)

I can appreciate the validity of your comments about carrier pilots. That is true.. but that could be said about any number of captains who command any specific type of ship class.

As to my comments in the pvp matches.. I won't lie about it.. Your right. The frustraition of it all gets the better of me and I lash out.. Something I know is not deserving of the community and I should know better.. So I'll go out on a limb here and appologize to anyone that was offended... Now having done that.. I wonder how many people will have the fortitude to appologize in return for their outbursts.

Thanks for your feedback.

Dear Raven,

I invite you to play a few games with TSI. I think after that you will be happy to know that the OP federation still very much has a chance. I would play with you personally but unfortunately, my computer has crashed.

Good luck.

So you that "leet purple gear" you have is Mk VIII.... that's a riot. You have a lot of stuff to sort out before you can even think about queuing for PvP. Level is generally more important than rarity. Also, you should be on your attack preset basically all of the time.

Few questions -

Why are you running mk 8 weapons? are you still a captain or at Admiral? If your at RA MK 10 or 11 is good.

Your missing the engineering console that gives a 35% shield boost. I think its Field generator or so.

Since I see you using a MK 10 item, clearly your are RA or higher. Upgrade all your gear into the higher ranges if you want to be more effective. Drop all of those Armor consoles as well. Currently you have nothing to support shields or any power boost.

DMGx2 does nothing. Get something with accuracy or Crit Damage. You'll need to do more testing once you refit your ship. You can't compare a ship using MK 11 gear aganist you when your mainly running MK 8 gear. There is going to be a difference no matter how you look at it.

Then it comes to timing/skill. You may have all of these cool abilites, but are you using them when you should or when you can? SNB is great, but save it for when he turns on his buffs and then clear them with SNB.

Abilities.. yeah I'm pretty up on that.. as to the gear.. well I run with what I have and afforded.. Since the VIII gear is just a step down from X, the amount of dps is the difference of what ten pts.?? Purchasing the gear also..well funds just don't grow on trees..LOL having said that.. I'm looking at some things on the exchange now..

Is this the Breen set? Like most of your other equipment, that set is inferior for pvp, you need the Aegis or Borg set. If you can't get them, you should have the MkX Covariant shield [cap]x3 that you can get for 50-ish Mark of Honor at K7.
