I started the thread so we could give feedback about kumari from the position of target of 5 DHC.I shall continue the thread.

A.First day:
Kumari is launched with shield and heal bug.
1.)Even so first meeting with a kumari is instant death to my mirror raptor.From more than 5 km.After I chek combat log i realise I was hit by new canon wing thing .Nice.
After that I manage to return the favor and destroy the kumari by sitting in his tail
(my raptor has 15 turn rate kumari has 16 btw)

2.)kumari backed by a recluse healer.
Can't do anything against the team.I need a better ship for this kind of meetings
and a premade with 2 kumari it is a very dangerous premade indeed even with broken kumari


B.Second day.Today.Kumari is fixed by patch
Panda's seems to like the ship.I got destroyed several times by some panda's flying kumari tactical escort.Definitively I need a better ship for that kind of fight .

First Conclusions:

From these 2 days it seems that using the damage spike it can generate, the kumari is very good against slower or comparable moving ships that can't get out from his arc
(my raptor has 15 kumari has 16 )

On the other side even if you have a slightly faster moving ship that AOE thing is dangerous in a range of some km.Got me killed once even if I was at ~3 km from it initial target and cloaked.

The 5 tac 5 dhc make it very fast to kill another ship.It is the next logical step because the new ships and shields are very hard to counter.My raptor needs 2-3 passes ,kumari needs just one to destroy a normal ship.

There are some cruisers I can't destroy nor bring their shields down with my raptor
(they are running elite shields +EPS3)

It seems that my raptor is obsolete. Have to find another ship.

First Observations :

I dislike the fact that the best "raptor" in game is the fleet defiant but for kumari I honestly envy federation players for the possibility to have this ship.

It has all that my actual raptor lacks:tac seating's,tac consoles
(I have to sacrifice SCI seating to counter plasma dot and TAC seating's to counter advanced danubes so a couple of tac seatings from kumari would have helped my kdf raptor to be a better ship.)
Kumari in fact is the ultimate raptor and it should had been available to kdf too

I shall continue as I meet more kumari.
If somebody wants to share kumari meetings I invite to add to this

Buy a fleet somraw, it's basically a cloakable fleet patrol escort.

My fleetmates last night were telling me how they were popping Kumari's in one or two volleys last night in Ker'rat.

They were rarely killed. I believe they were flying Raptors and BoPs.

I suppose they will be a bit harder to kill now.

Check your raptors shield numbers, mines down near 20% from 2 days ago. I'm guessing my guns are gimped as well but have no logger data to confirm this. It totally explains why I got owned by an AI frigate last night when previously I laugh at battleships.

I know it's not the focus of the thread as I have not been on the business end of five DHCs myself. But it's a really, really painful experience. Took mine into an arena match last night with a premade. I had healing support which was desperately needed considering I had 4k shields (lawl). My team would call out the focus target, but since I'm still a newb at space, I'd usually get lost in the sea of spam and hit someone else.

I do feel a little bad. Took two guys out from full shields/hull in as little as a second with a soft-alpha (Alpha, Omega, Tac Team, Rapid Fire III, that's it) while my team was going to town on the focus targets. This ship is broken. All I needed was for Tac Team to be down and to be facing my opponent.

Yeah, the 33% healing bug on the Kumari's is now gone. I tested it out in a few team games last night, and even popped a few fully buffed tank-spec'd cruisers in seconds solo.

Went up against one last night in a Cap n Hold a few times. I must say that wing cannon ability is huge. I was in my tac bug and after the first pass that wing thing would knock me down 50% from full shields/hull. I proceeded to hit TSS2 and HE1, jumped on his tail and killed him, without GDFing mind you, but in the hands of a more seasoned captain that would've killed me no doubt.

I'm saying nothing, and will post a pic of my shields when I get home. Could simply be a byproduct of what they accidentially did to the Kumari heals and timers.
