From this topic, I see 2 Mistakes.

1. You are asking for help for your Cruiser in the PVP Forums. Should have been done in the Cruiser section of the forums..

2. You made responses that allow me to make the assumption that you feel a Cruiser pilot should never die, no matter how silly the odds are against you.

Complaining that you got killed due to Hit and run Tactics does not help you improve and get better. Asking for help from your federation Allies, and perhaps even trying to find a PVP focused Fleet that would help you in staying alive while in Ker'rat would be helpful.

Joining a fleet centered around PVP can help improve your game play. Especially if they communicate well. Even if they lose every match, they can also learn how to improve.

I would rather lose 100 times to really good players. Then win 100 times against really bad teams. Because I'll learn more from those losses then I could ever learn from those wins.

Before you respond any further with statements about your dislike of other players tactics, the dislike of responses some players, probobly including my self, have given here. I have some questions that other people i'm sure could answer since I probobly cannot since I am more of a Klingon player, then a Federation Cruiser player.

What type of a build are you trying to build in PVP?

What type of Weapons do you prefer to use?

What Type of Character are you?

What type of Map do you wish to excell at?

and Finally

What is your goal while PVPing?

If healing is what you're looking for check out my guide (although your probably have already :p). Those large heal numbers come from jamming as much healing potential as possible into the skill slots (imagine 90% of them being healing) and shield healing counting for the recipient of the heal rather then the giver. If you would like to chat more about healing or you can hit me up with a PM or just contact a member of TSI and we can help you out. Also consider joining the "organizedpvp" channel where tons of players gather and can answer questions / find groups / have fun.

Playing casually is no reason to be a bad player. It is just a measure of time and not a measure of skill. Don't listen to people that tell you that you have to play X amount of hours a day in order to be good. The metagame does shift over time though, so that could partially be a reason for the rude awakening.

What Faithborn said.


IpigiEpos also has a youtube page that has a couple of neat tips on shield powers that may help your survivability. Very few things are going to help against a perfectly timed alpha strike from a well tuned escort.

I have only rolled escort so I can't help you with cruiser build but I can tell you that with time you will figure out how many escorts fly, when they decloak ( if refit tac.), what skills we pop when we get into what situation and how to counter them. Although it does seem like a new generation has hit VA lvl and tend to keep me looking at my 6 abit more than before.

So Ad.Astra I think if you read Faithborn's page and check out Ipigi's youtube vids. on TSS it should help you get o your way to being very hard to kill and a great healer. Keep the blue fart cloud I hate that so it must be good and try out jam targeting sensors for those pesky escorts that you just can't shake.

1: Use dual EP2S and chain them.. The resist will help limiting the damage. Boost with TSS if needed.

2: Use your Brace (and potentially Polarize or Hazard Emitters or A2Damperes for the same reason) whenever you can, if you suspect a critstacked escort is around

3: While some might say you should slot armor in your Engineering consoles, I disagree.. Armor wont help your team, played right you have plenty of staying power.. 1 MK11 Shield console, 2 MK11 SIF Generators, 1 EPS is my choice here.

Whatever you do, sometimes youll just be oneshot... Ive had a lucky crit of nearly 100k damage, that blew through a RSP and oneshotted a cruiser.. Sometimes it just happens.

(Im still looking for a 70 Crit Severity MK XI Antiproton DBB )

To quote a good friend of mine (that happens to be one of the best healers in the game)

Resists are EVERYTHING!

Its still luck, since you cannot "plan" it.

You can improve your chances, but you can never attest it to anything other than luck.

My guess: You shoot off more BOL3 and/or Tricobalt shots, therefore you have more lucky oneshots.

You can take Faithborns advice and load 90% of your build heals. lol
Of course if your casual and don't play with a team that is going to win a game for you you may want to balance your build a bit. Read his stuff on resist rolling and stacking and understand it... then make a trade on your build.
Pick a damage theam. (System Destruciton (boarding parties) Weapns (Dem Beam overload) Holds (plasma tractor) and go build with it.....

You man not want an "Observer Build" if you are playing PUG groups all the time. Sitting around never dieing and never winnineg (ie killing anything) may not be all the fun.
