Look at your build first... whats your offensive to defensive ratio on your BO skills. How many shield heals do you have... how many hull heals do you have. When you make your build decide on the role your going to play an make sure you balance your skills accordingly. I try and make sure I have some hull heal and some shield heal... and choosing ones you can cast on others is a good idea. (no matter what class ship you have)

Learn to Distribute your shields... a keybind for that is probaly a good idea. Also learn what powers give you resists and use them BEFORE you take damage. The 30% or so resist from an emergency power to shields does you no good if your using it to rebuild shields AFTER they have been removed.

If you are in a pug and not that well organized learn to switch to the target someone else is working on if you need too. Pugs groups can do well even if they only somewhat focus their fire.

Also on the fed ball... use it but be prepared to jump out quick if things go south. I LOVE smacking a tight fedball with cannon scatter volley... be ready to hit evasive and move just out side of any scatter arc. Don't run too far or your leaving your teamamtes in the lurch. Evasive M is one of the most powerful PVP tools IMHO... it is up every 45 seconds... Its good to practice and no how long it lasts you and how far it will get you and how much turn it will provide. After a ton of practice I know exactly when mine is about to expire and I can use inertia to spin me into a perfect arc shoot. It is also great for escape or to get out of someones arc... if you need to as things have really gone south and engine batt + Evasive = major distance.

Best thing you can do is keep practicing with the same 4 other people who aren't afraid to sacrifice their builds for builds that are more beneficial to what you wish to accomplish.

Practice, tinker, practice some more, tinker.

By playing all the time together you learn how they play, pretty soon they become infinitely reliable AND you'll notice you start winning all the time. If you happen to possess a kill 'em all instinct, you start to get mad when your team makes mistakes or when you die.

Then you're a legitimate PvP winner without having to buck the system.

Asteroids, I like asteroids.

Wait till one of your enemies runs into an asteroid and his team mates leave him. Easy kill.

Hide behind an asteroid so that only your target can see you. Another easy kill.

Another thing I like to do is to fly really close to my team mates so that I am hitting the same shield facing as him. Then apply as many debuffs to the target as possible, and as many buffs to me as possible. And then get another easy kill.

This PvP is not brain surgery. Follow the principles laid down by 孫武in his book 孫子兵法 and you won't go far wrong. Or as the Klingons say, Hit hard, Fear no-one, Engage cloak, Run away.

I find it helps to try out different types of ships as well.

I played an escort for ages, but started to get bored with the fact that MOST people play as escorts and there don't seem to be that many sci. So I got me a sci ship, and woah it was different to what I was used to.

But playing with it has gotten me used to science ships and now if I go back to the escort I can use what I have learned there, too.

Also have powers set up in a way that's easy for you to use them fast and to remember. With my escort, I find I do most of my flying head on, so I can have a better shot with cannons and torpedoes. That means my fore shields take a hell of a lot of damage while the rest remain barely touched. So I have the "reroute power to fore shield" ability bound to "2" on the keyboard and basically, I'm almost constantly tapping it. It's just a small thing, but it helps - if I had to actually CLICK on the reroute shield power with the cursor, or hold down one key and tap another every time or something like that, I wouldn't be able to do it anything like as fast and would get blown up (as I used to before I found this out!). The powers I use most often are all set to keys that are easy to reach and to remember, so I can concentrate on the battle not on what keys I'm trying to press.

Almost all of Sun Tzu's teachings speak directly of Klingon methodology in warfare. That is why we crush our enemies and see them driven before us and hear the lamentation of their women.

Iv learned that its not a good idea to fight the Klingons. There ships seem to be alot more powerfull than the Feds. I find it fairer to play FvF. But in the end if doesnt really matter coz win or lose you still get rewards and if your playing the dailys you still get Marks of honor.

oh by the way I know of one place to get daily missions, in the K7 Club. But where do you get the others from?
