Yeah, but I don't always want it to be the same side.
I think about the way I lay plasma in PvE - it's pornographic the way I can make a Cruiser dance there. I completely forget how to fly it in PvP and just lean left...
Flying an Escort, I don't even think about how I'm moving - it's like a trance. I'm focused on everything else I'm doing.
That's missing when I fly Cruisers - I'm focused on stuff just like another boat, but there's no second nature movement going on... unless I consider the LTO crap to be the second nature movement, meh.
Perhaps it's as simple as you say, I know that for the most part I want to be broadside. Everything else, I'm trying to keep them in the front - whether it's torps/DHCs on a BC or Bill Nye stuff on a Carrier.
Just going to have to make the extra effort to sometimes go right - pay better attention to when I should go left or I should go right - sort of thing.
It's pretty easy to set up the ambush/focus fire on the guy that always turns one way...meh.
When I'm thinking of what to do next in most other games, I tend to turn on auto pilot, running laps around the city or town I'm in, or if it's a 2D platformer, I start jumping over deadly holes.
I've noticed that I turn right when I'm in space, against every target. But when PvP happens I generally just go forward as my mouse hand goes into panic mode and starts turning every direction long enough to counter which direction I was just going.
