I believe that if you can join the 10k+ DPS channels, you'll be able to get help... unfortunately, I am not a member of those channels and am not sure how to join them.
I'm really starting to find these players annoying as heck on these boards. How can the game be any fun if you insta kill everything. I can only see these builds useful for pvper's that all have builds like this. In pve this is just lame. All that fleet and stf gear makes you god like in this game. Zero challenge for me would mean a boring game. But yeah its all about ego stroking on the boards. I don't have any of that gear and i can pretty much kill things quick with all mark12 gear off the exchange. But its still challenging at least.

Im doing 5k in mine, retro phasers for the win!!! Well I don't really know, some guy in a scimitar said I sucked only doing 5k and he was doing 30k.


Question Elite Swarmies, or Elite Scorpies? Which is better dps?

If you're using phasers, elite Pergerines since they get a boost from your consoles. If using antiproton, get elite swarmers. If using plasma, get elite scorpions.

I could be wrong about this, tho.

I am pretty sure your gear does NOT effect your fighters.

Your gear DOES NOT affect your pets in any way.

Scorpions and swarmers put out the best dps but use what you want, there is no synergy with your ship tac consoles.

I think this is the case, wish it wasn't though. I would love for my consoles to affect my pets.

I stopped using Scorpions 'cause the High Yield plasma torps kept setting me on fire.

Good job on hitting 30k. I did not think it would be possible with all of the handicaps on this ship (especially the low turn-rate and +5 weapon boost). I guess pets helped a bit. Did you use separation to get additional turn and damage?

Seems like you are getting 30k in anything. Maybe you have hit the limit on your run pattern, and it doesnt matter what ship you are using? Post a run with the freebie RA Star Cruiser?

How much were the one-shot gimmicks contributing to the overall score? ISO and the lance can only be used once per run, and if they are doing ~30k per activation that is a pretty big contribution. There may be a point where reference scores have to be weapons-only.
