I have earned aprox 85,000 Medals of Ex on 10 toons... you can pull out a calculator and figure out how many matchs that is.... and guess what

I learn things all the time, my builds change when I find something that works better... or to defend against something that is kicking my rear.

Its called being a humble student... I like to think I am one most days, and I learn things.

You seem to have your fingers in your ears trying to drown out the world... my kids used to do that when they where small.

You tell me " Don't believe my own eyes.... everything is working fine" Seeing a group of ships with beams on a sci or escort and the shields don't go down? Not everyone built can be bad; and even if it were due to bad builds, the collective force of the number of beams should do something.
Then let's 1v1 sometime. If you don't want to believe what I'm saying, I'll show you.

(I'm not challenging you to say you're a bad player, I just want to show you that beams are quite viable against shields.)

And, as mancom said, your build is rather important in such a discussion. It's like telling us your car is too slow, but not telling us what kind of car you have.

So, if you joined the boards in 2010 ( assuming that is when you started gaming) you have spent over 125+ days of the past 7 months playing a game. Even if it were from the start of the game, that's still 125+ days of the 500ish days the game has been in existence.

Well its 18 months now not 7... lol. Ya though you win its still 20% of the time, as its not an exageration. The point was simply that even if you spend 20% of your day (the joys of working at home lol) in the game you still end up learning things. There isn't anything wrong with asking for help... or accepting it even if you have not solicited it.

Anyway hope too see ya in a match at some point, my escort should have not problems tanking you I hear.

PS Aug 2008... as apposed to Jan 2010... I guess by your logic then I should assume your a Star Trek RP guy that was waiting for close too 2 years for the game to launch so you could play Captain Kirk / Picard USS EnterpriZe right? its a forum dude.... I signed up when I bought the game right around launch.

Dude, hop in an escort and see how uber cannons are. No better than fireworks against resistance capped shields.

Lol fair enough... and I will still admit that it is a HELL of a long time to spend in a game.

There was a "how long have you played" thread not long ago... at least I'm not the only one.
