Love the ship and ya powersliding is amazing for turning huge ships but for me i use a full turret loadout since they shoot 360 and huge ships have the power to support em normally especially with eps units. lol real money something to be said for being vet is you get c points for free every month.
What do folks think about an engineer in an Atrox? Contemplating a new captain, and torn on whether to go eng or sci.
my engineer runs the Atrox. I have to say, I like it, i tried out the Armitage with that char too. the Atrox of course has massively higher survivability, with the chance for more types of heals with the atrox's extra sci slot. The Atrox also does most of its damage with broadsides and pets.
Sci wouldnt be that bad either. Sci Carrier commanders are the kings of ally spam, especially adding in photonic fleet.
If you want to soak up as much damage as you can, pick the engineer captain with a hull/shield heal setup. then there are the shield healing pets, but those would be bad for the Atrox mainly because a lot of the ships damage or CC depending on the pet comes from its hangers.
