Don't engage the enemy when you're outnumbered. Regroup before going back into the fray.

Don't keep your target selection on your cloaked teammate. The opponents can see his distance from them on the Target-Of-Target HUD element, and they will gleefully close in on him and hit him with an AoE.

If there are five enemy Defiants (or any other non- Galaxy ships) around you and you are AMSed - hit the galaxy button near your map and que again. Perhaps you will have more luck and fight against someone without P2W consoles. Extension of this - don't que for FvK until you are Klink and you'll save a year of your GPU lifetime. Otherwise spam will kill it faster then you imagine.

Don't bother with manual shield balancing if you are fighting cannon armed escort. It won't do anything so you may spare your keyboard (or mouse).

Here are some from the Leroy Jenkins book:

- Don't communicate with your team... EVER
- You team needs to spread, to cover as much ground as possible. Never be 2 ships withing 10 km of each other at any time.

Don't fall for the "wounded escort" trick...if you see a ship pop evasive away from the fight, don't follow them. At best, they pop all their heals and you leave your team to fight without you for a minute or more. At worst, they pop their heals and their Defiant buddy decloaks, and then you need to respawn.

Try to have at least one spam-clearing ability, like FAW or CSV. When things get confusing out there with all the spam, use them to clean things up a little.

Win...


Think of it this way, if your teammate doesn't die they might not shoot at you anyway.


and P.S. how long before this thread is hijacked by someone recommending EPTS3? And bets on how long it takes for someone to correct me and say "EPTS3 isn't that bad, I mean engy team 3 is over kill anyway"

1] Don't forget you have a Tactical/Science/Engineering Fleet team skill, which never loads onto your bar by default but is in the ability list brought up via the 'P' key.

2] Dilithium Surplus from the mission in the Alhena(?) System in Eta Eridani is a free Evasive Maneuvers.

Also, even without heals or suprise friends, GDF can buff an escorts firepower massively (over 100% when the hulls around 20~ish) for 60 seconds, but three seconds of RSP1 may be all he needs to smoke a pursuer far quicker than they expect.

Distribute your Shields! If your cruiser doesn't have extends, get it!

Distribute your Shields! Stop running from heals!

Distribute your Shields! Boarding Party and Jam Sensors both paint a huge target on the side of your ship.

Distribute your Shields! Jam Sensors just causes one of your teammates to die.

Distribute your Shields! Ask questions! PvPers love to give advice, it makes us feel important and wise :p

This is a team-oriented game, your team is your life and vice-versa. Even in PUG groups, simple coordination can accomplish a lot. Call targets, cross-heal and watch the enemy die. This can even work when fighting premades, I have been in pugs that have done this.

Distribute your Shields!
