Hi, I am about to create my first character and I am big into Player Vs Player. I am wondering if anyone could give me some advice as to what class or ship I should do as beginner and PvP minded player.
I am not new to PvP or MMOs, I have been playing over 10yrs.
Thank you much for any / all help, have a good one
I strongly suggest leveling a science officer. You can never, ever have too many science officers on a team. Science officers excel in any role, although I'd keep them out of cruisers because the slow turn rate makes subnuking a bit difficult. Sci escorts are deadly.
I can't think of a time I went up against a 5 sci team and won, and I can't think of a time I was on a 5 sci team and lost.
I'd also recommend Science, personally. It's quite a versatile class both on the ground and in space, in my experience. I primarily play space, and Science Captains get some rather useful inherent abilities to play with. As well, you can put them in just about any class of ship and create a fairly effective build.
In the end though, it really just depends on what you want to do, and how you want to do it.
