Actually Sophler Durden made a thread about Recall doffs a few weeks ago. Bort even chimed in. I'm pretty pissed about the Orion hangars being unusable on the Jem HECC but I threw on some shield drones and they honestly aren't terrible. Not good enough to compete with Interceptors, but given the choice between **** dps, kite runner siphon pod shame, or a shield heal... Anyway, I grabbed 3 purple Recall FDO's last night and was flicking as high as 127 defense with no active abilities. Anecdotal evidence is unhelpful though because most matches were ****ty feds so I couldn't tell if it was them sucking or the FDO's working. And when I say ****ty, one CnH had 3 feds under 11k on the scoreboard. Then monkeys vaped me like a square jawed redshirt repeatedly, so IDK. I'm down to test this crap if anybody wants to parse it.
thanks for that link red. now i understand about whats going on.
Not to change the subject but could this AtD help the Dreadnought carrier? I just keep on exploding over and over.
I don't have one, in fact I sold it to by the HEC, but starting with that turn and inertia there's only so much you can do.
Also, I only got online for like 20 minutes last night but I did some screwing around and had my defense rating over 200. The glitched number was over 220 but that's only for a half second at a time and will be fixed per bort. Over 200 is not sustainable for any real length of time. I want to have somebody shoot me and parse it to see what this actually translates to in misses.
the dread is hopeless, cant even run 2 copies of AtD. both LT stations on the drea would need to be universal for it to even have a chance to set up good defensive basics, but it still wouldnt be able to do any supporting really. i did duel one a wile back and it had 2 shield drones, even it had un killable shields with them. it was only killable if its shield repair drones were killed first. those are actually extreamly good pets.
i knew the jem heavy could be a good ship, you just cant copy paste a stranded escort build on it and expect it to work.

are shield drones op? they seem to rep them so fast you are forced to kill them then aim at the ship
They exist to make slotting an extra Scatter Volley more desirable than stacking non-stop CRF's like most pets. Probably not all that overpowered, I recall them being easily destroyed with a single non-tac buff'd CSV from my old RSV.
Definitely not in the same league as Danubes or Siphon Drones.
Without the 3 Z-store Orion pets it's either siphons or T5 scorps I think. Even Adv Skuls are still pretty lousy. I am soooooo pissed about that. Let me have a freakin cc pet option that isn't siphons. Shield drones can also be used to troll your team by telling them to follow cloaked ships. They blow up when you look at them but yeah, the heal is decent.
