# 1 My new maneuver
01-22-2012, 08:02 PM
ok guys does sto have the programing to pull this one off. if i set up gravity well, and then tractor a ship caught in gravity well. does the ship get added stress on the hull. because you have one side being pull in by gravity, and then you have the other side, not letting it go. personaly i'd like to see ships being ripped apart by that.

also assuming i did think of it first, i'm calling it the tractor well.....better names can be recommended

it might, if gravity well were strong enough, but what you refer to would need closer to a black hole than gravity well. plus, neither GW nor TB last long enough to pull such a thing off, though the visual thought is eye candy.

Also, your TB would need to be of equivalent strength as said GW, if it were to be held in place. and again, it would need to be of a longer duration plus higher power to have an effect of what you want.

Here's a move I've been using lately. Tyken's Rift, Borg TB & Photonic Shockwave, in that order.

I think history will remember that as the "Bradgrant maneuver"

Or more descriptively. As in the statement "Oh look at Roach! He pulled a Bradgrant! "

You are talking about a game where a small, light, no propulsion tractor mine can anchor a huge, heavy, warp capable Galaxy class ship dead in the water. Forget mass, forget inertia, forget physics they don't apply here.

FWIW, I personally have had great luck with Tractor Beam first, then hit with Gravity Well. That way you can aim Gravity Well to be sure they're stuck there. TB will let go before GW, but I have found that, at least in PvE, it goes loads towards damaging hull strength and they find it hard to get out of GW. Also, love my tractor beam torpedoes. If you can target subsystems and shut down shields before TB, GW & as a previous poster suggested, a good Photonic Shockwave or Scramble Sensors, you have a pretty good hit.

I like matching up TB and Tyken's as well.

Of course nothing matches the joy I get from using rapid-fire cannon when your escort has nothing but dual heavies. Nice shield you had there. Be a shame if it got trashed.

Of course they didn't apply here. They all applied down at Einsteins Cafe and picked up some part time work there. You should go down and give them a hearty hello! Doppler's shift starts in about a half hour. He says he loves waiting tables but he goes all red if you mention his PhD. Plancks constantly bringing this up to him so if you see them together best to split them up. Heinsenberg normally works the bar but I believe he called out. Somethings up with his cat. No one can tell if is alive or dead! Open the box and give it a shake is what I say! Niels Bohr is filling in for him and he certainly will give you some complementarity drinks for no less than half price. What a kidder! Oh and make sure you try the special. Its Relativity.
