# 21 How can you get more 'pengs?
09-04-2011, 12:15 AM
Please, someone tell me!

As a LA3 I freakin' miss my peng! I had to give it up because my Mk IV peng just wasnt doing in anymore.

I go to replay the Doomsday mission and all it shows for rewards is the officers, not the peng

Am I missing something?

I know, I sound like a noob here, but I really want my peng back! I miss the days where I could kill a ship in a couple shots!

The Hargh'Peng is an additional reward for completing the mission, but is not listed at the start (even on replay), because they do not want to 'spoil' the surprises in the mission. If you replay and complete the mission, you will get the appropriate-Mark Hargh'Peng as a reward.

Didn't realise they could and had hidden the reward, will need to check that out. I wish they had done that with the Horta pet, that would have been a great surprise, in fact, if they changed it, it still would be for new players.

Pengs are useless anyway now since Cryptic added the global cooldown to 10secs.

Pengs are not useless... Putting more than 2 (ei making a peng boat) is useless. 1 or 2 do just fine, especially if you don't invest much sp in torp skills.

Weapons have always been built to be exploitable. One per person is a dumb idea.

Bleh. I never used pengs continuously, other than to test them out and the color fits with my Lollarons (Like everyone has a reason to try out a new weapon introduced in the game). Other than that, I find them so dull and useless. I'd rather put a trico on this baby and just use some real skills with timing etc.

I do not see why other people have the urge to use these kinds of ways of dealing more damage. Is it because its fun? is it because one can't do more damage by other means?

Where are the people with real skills in this game? Where are our fundamental principles which should made us to improve ourselves with other means than potentially broken weapons/abilities? First its peng, then its faw, now its spread. (I do not imply that Spread is OP, i honestly wouldnt know, i dont even care. I wont use it.).


To me it seems like lack of a solid shipbuild.

Sorry, couldnt resist. :p

Yes that looks pretty nice.
But I hope you do realize that Damage stats are pure hull and neglecting shield damage. Yes from your stats it seems that you do some nice sustained direct hull damage, but in theory this could just as well mean that you didnt made a single kill, but its pretty logical you get the most damage stats this way.

Compare this to a normal arena match where an escort does much greater damage to the target, but since his shields are up, you only do bleedtrough damage while the overall damage of the escort is much higher. But that wont be added up in the stats.

Comparison:
- Escort versus cruiser, Escort deals 200K damage before the cruiser dies. (This is possible because of the healing the cruiser throws on himself)

- Escort versus cruiser, Escort kills a shield facing, pwns a trico on the cruiser with some buffs, one shot. Thats about ~50K of damage on the PvP Stats.

So that proves that Damage stats are in no way related to real life killcount.
Furthermore I've been in 1v1 matches where the opponent did almost double the damage as me. And still finished the match 2-0 score. Just trying to explain that stats as they are now do not resemble much.
And that even in a normal arena match, escorts outputting the lowest damage on the scoreboard could potentially still have the highest killcount.

Still, your screenshot perfectly explains the relevance between Hull damage and Statistics
I almost thought you did that same mission over and over again, until I realised it was KDF :p

Quantums > pengs my dear. What is this "fine" you speak of? What is it you're attempting to accomplish? Make your enemy vomit from a purple haze?
