I have although a escape every 30 sec and put out more dps than a whole team can do a match avrg 800k + evry 15 min. I choose my fight and I choose to risk death, almost never am I a victim of there will, I oppose my will upon the battle field, and pug vs premade cry runner on me I laff. I just replay cant keep up l2p. I know the best and respect them, new f2p people need to get off there premade horse and kneel and open up for a big can of woop a##. Skill has taperd off year after year. Vet have more than just damage and heals.

I have a ship that no one will ever duplicate because they cant. I eat BoP for breakfest and blow them up cloaked. I also know my place, I know my build, I know my opponent off fist alpha and how to adjust. I know when situation arnt good for me and I take advantage of there week links. Just as the new players should relise to switch targets, because point click is not this game.

There is a conter to all, cloack = scan, cloak = Tbr, cloak = follow mine to target, cloak = listen for alpha ( yes you can); the best, like emojoe will 2km drop alpha = death if not prep.

Runner = (all power to engine) omega, engine battery, aux to internal dampeners, speed burst console, evasive.

Cloak is not a i win.

:stepping down from soap box:
What type of ship do you play?

Too bad Cryptic stripped names from the topic. I bet some of you posted in that topic.
How long have you been holding on to this little gem of a link?

Just kidding


Feds needs to shut up about this junk. I am a 50/50 fed/klink player. I see nothing super OP about one side or the other in PvP except unfavorable Match Making teams. If you are in a group without the correct counter, then the other side seems OP. Just take your round loss and go own the next round when Match Making gives your side the edge before a shot is fired.

Cloak is ultimately effective against one foe.
I would say it depends on the ship this foe is flying. And his personal preferences and setup. Good luck on trying to use cloak vs sci ship configured as BoP killer with sensors boosted to maximum and kinetic and/or plasma build. Patrol escort with eng as pilot. Yeah, you may surprise him, but it would be pretty hard to kill him.

Cloak is overrated and thus cloak detection is not that much useful. Beside, there aren't that many BoP players left, thanks to ungodly good KDF battlecruisers and trash-box sihts.

My only opinion about FED vs KLINK is that I hate that the side specific tactics, weapons and ships are dissappearing by becoming more and more accessible for the other party

Nah, just less and less Klinks knows how to use even standard cloak and they decloak on 10km. Otherwise catching a cloaked ship and sending HYT quantums is kinda cool

Not really. Because if I target a cloaked ship, and he has me in target, then unless he is bad player, he knows I see him. So that narrows it only to ships that are going to ambush someone else.

Problem with cloak detection is, that its really not valuable as pre-emptive meassure, but its great to finish off fleeing target.

And I say that, as someone who loves to harrass BoPs in my Nebula
