And also that you weren't elite enough to 1v1 don't forget!
1 on 1 is for pilot practice. That is all. Matter of fact, just about every ship out there except bops and well, heck I've seen defiants tank 1 guy indefinitely. So pretty much all ships should be able to go into a high shield and engine power and pop some buffs to stay in 1 v 1. Guy in my fleet is great in duels, but if I don't want to die I can just go defensive or get outa 10 clicks for the 15 sec it will take me to recover.
1 v 1 elite? Nah. I much enjoy at least 3 v 3. If you duel specialize it takes too much away from team thinking mentality.
Test pilot skills 1v1.
Test battle tactics 3v3 at least.
I totally agree. With the state of things now, if you are after anyone who is a decent player most often if you don't have 2 or more focusing then the guy isn't going down, at least not for a while. Unless you catch his cooldowns from a prior engagement or ongoing battle of course.
There are a few 1v1's happening in the q's especially in cnh. If it's two decent players it ends up with the guy with the most finger stamina. Fun times none the less though
I really love it, when it starts 5v5, mikey is the last of his team standing cause nobody shot him. Next step: kill mikey and he still feels superior cause "it took" 5... of course.
Haha that is pretty much what happened in that CnH I mentioned. As a matter of fact it is a common experience. He flies in to a mob, happens to be one of the last left, and goes "ha, took 5 of you!" when it's his turn to feel the pain, as if we weren't focus firing everyone else too.
The irony is that as much as it "took 5 of us" to kill not just said person but the other 4 too (something he seems to forget), it "took all 5 of them" to lose.
Nothing to be proud of at all.
Friendly banter in game is one thing. Being an verbose egotist is another.
