Okay, so it doesn't hurt if your pugmates are awesome players

Seriously though, even in random pugs it can work. This one time, at PvP camp, I was in a PUG that suffered the first 4 deaths. I called for a regroup, took them to the side, taught them how to spam distribute shields and to watch for my target calls in chat. We won 15-4 against 4 premade members and a pug.

Distribute your Shields! If your cruiser doesn't have extends, get it!

Distribute your Shields! Stop running from heals!

Distribute your Shields! Boarding Party and Jam Sensors both paint a huge target on the side of your ship.

Distribute your Shields! Jam Sensors just causes one of your teammates to die.

Distribute your Shields! Ask questions! PvPers love to give advice, it makes us feel important and wise :p

This is a team-oriented game, your team is your life and vice-versa. Even in PUG groups, simple coordination can accomplish a lot. Call targets, cross-heal and watch the enemy die. This can even work when fighting premades, I have been in pugs that have done this.

Distribute your Shields!

I wasn't counting things other players already said, just repeating for emphasis

They know who they are. Loaded up with 5 AMS. massed sci spam, and a total lack of coordination. They were in the last tournament.... briefly.

mav we did do some good pugmade stomping last night. i remember that particular match too, because i was all frustrated i kept on drunk piloting getting myself killed.

and for the record, to be a "premade" you need to have 5 ships that have offsetting powers, and some sort of a gameplan for a kill cycle. and you gotta know who is healing the healer, and so on and so on. that particular match i think their were 5 guys from the same fleet...but they were no premade....just fleetmates i think.

so i guess those are my tips then.....make sure you know who is healing the healer, and have a kill cycle.

also, have fun kill bad guys

Sorry, but what's the problem with running away?

I played in a match with my fleet mates, and they stuck me with the Klingons (I fly Fed) and we were outnumberd 4 to 6 (I believe 2 or 3 of them were sub VA).

From the moment I decloaked, to the end of the match, I was in non-stop combat. In the final seconds of the match, they finally managed to get my hull down to sub-50%, no shields, and shield/hull repairs were on cool down. So, I ran.

My reasoning was:
1) I hadn't had to respawn yet, and I didn't want to give them a point.
2) If I could draw one or two away from the battle, it may help my team.
