I don't get how one Sci ship can keep ALL of you busy.

At most, he's got 1 RSP. 5 people should be able to do an appreciable amount of damage through that with bleedthrough alone.

May I pull a Matt Dravis and link my stuff to this thread? Seems relevant to me!

Sci vessels are not OP, they are just great support.

5v1 all of the same rank and you can't kill it? Learn to play the game.

WHAT!?

Well wasnt me, although im one of the few who can actually pull such a thing off and survive.

Your best bet against a sci tanking ship in that fashion is tbss. Watch him or her assplode.

FBP doesn't count as dps output man, when facing mostly beamboats, that's not a show of skill, but a show of using a skill that's balanced against them. That's like fed dropping mine fields on the respawn point in WZ's, and saying, " look at my leet dmg!! "

I can put number similar to that on a carrier using FBP spam, takes no skill at all, just RSP, FPB, and HE/ET's.

To the OP, what it does take, is controlling the Sci ship 1v1, or overwhelming it. Most builds can only handle 1v1, if that. You make it 2v1, odds are he can't CC you both, at least not 100% of the time. Seems to me, you had players who got outclassed in every way. (Though a grandfathered TyR3 SShip is nasty @ RA5)
What may have happened is that he drained shields/weapons, etc to zero 'enmasse, and then went straight hull. That or buds decided abandon ship = leet dps.. dunno, wasn't there, we can only assume what took place.

(Though I have had 3-4 Fed's attack my carrier, and couldn't kill me for anything.

I stand corrected.

I must be the most noob player in the game with my "fbp only" bop.

If you're 1 vs 5 then chaining RSP and FBP is a perfectly valid -- indeed intelligent and skillful -- tactic.

in a 5v1 you are allowed to lame as much crap as you want to "even the odds" and survive. view it as a form of equalizer. its all fair game when your in that situation

this includes but is not limited; tss, rsp stacking, vm, snb, fbp, evasive manuevers. DDoS attacks are foul play though
