I watched the vids in your signature. Very well done. What the underlying thing here is, is that people that have issues PvPing could learn from watching what is done. Imitation may be flattery, but successful war games require tried and true methods, for the new and experienced alike.

Long story short, great captures. People should watch and learn. And I never new until this how intimidating a cannon can look... were those scatter shots or rapid fires mostly?

Depending on the vids, the newly ones are scatter and my old escort movie is using rapidfire.

How good is Scatter Shot? Is it better with Heavy's or regular Duals? I have used Rapid Fire right along, apparently in error.

Zorena, I get that ur support as an engineer but you keep ur weaponspower pretty high throughout the engagement, why not switch to full turrets or beams with mines to inflict more damage?

Ur time on target would improve drastically with beams or turrets on auto when you max ur weaponpower like you do, just a wondering question, no flaming

Its about burst. Being able to turn a ton of extra burst on a hard to kill target is likely more useful then a nibble nibble bit of pew pew from the healer.

ok, but in the video, Zorena does not pilot enough to make that "ton of burst damage" with his battlecriuser, so I theory, ur statement sounds nice, but, given the video of Zorena's playingstyle, being mostly stationary to heal, the time on target simply is not sufficient to create that overstatement you make.

For the record, I think Zorena is an excellent PvP player, but the theory trumped up by Husanak is just lame, beams drain considerable more shielding then a bad time-on-target canon spread.

Healers can be great warriors when they drain shields AND heal, heavy dps dealers or glass cannons do "a ton of extra burst".

So, I guess, the question still remains for Zorena

Well I don't play a full on healer much myself... so I guess your right.
I'll leave it for Zorena.
