I forgot how much things I take for granted.

For example, the knowledge that you should run high weapon power, because it gives you the most bang for your buck (literally).

So we shouldn't just teach distribute shields, EptS and tactical team. We must even teach weapon power is important if you want to damage. This may not be aimed so much at PvPers, but more at PvErs, but never the less.

Startrek Online's PvE is way too easy if you know what you are doing. But if you don't know, you can be totally screwed in some situations, like when you try to deal with an enemy that can heal himself.

The most fragile thing in PvP
Not an Escort.
Not a BoP
Not a Cruiser without EptS
Not a Carrier without EPtS and 3 DBBs
A PvPers ego

Agree/Disagree?

I think he was just explaining that having your weapons on autofire gives u overall more damage output, and since the old day 'macro'ing the fire cycle sequence is really of no value anymore these days its probably best for any pvper to use autofire, its just sad if your weapons arent firing while they 'could'.

hehe

Seems hax methods spread around fast. did u guys reverse engineered my tool or what?

LOL a 1v1 queue, what are the odds of a decent pvper to encounter a total noob? 99.9%. Boring.

Nah he's definitely talking about Key Ghosting given the full length of his post. Autofire helps reduce this, because on a non gaming board the space bar is smashed less often, which means far less chances of losing keystrokes on your board end of things.

Now as far as the Horrid UI is concerned, that's another kettle of fish that is entirely dependent on whether or not The Cryptic is feeling generous to you or not.

Autofire I've found tends to be extremely buggy, particularly if you are crapping out mines on a regular basis. Autofire also can lead to you vaping team mates when you get AMSed.

Remember when you had to invite people to a team? Or when FBP only worked vs beams? Ganalda station used to be filled with players, now it's a dead zone.

I used to get on a team with random guys and we'd stay together for hours at a time. Playing arena after arena after arena. Who were these people, are they still here? you were awesome.

You had to Que for cracked, solar and briar separately.

If I remember right it was 2 duals or 3 heavies to get the cycle right, maybe that's backwards. or was 3 duals and 4 heavies? either way you get the point.

It wasn't until I hit max level that I found out what Kerrat was.

Playing FvK was easier then PvE "if you were the K"

This is all a month, maybe two after launch. Good times. I kinda wish I'd have tried to get into one of the old kdf fleets, instead of waiting over a year. Where'd they go? Come back to the Red side!

Nostalgia, what a B

I know, it's not starship combat, but Mechwarrior Online is now in Closed Beta, and anyone that has a Founder account has access to it. Ahem.

How's that for Random?

It's all about forcing the other side to react
Some folks here like to have huge burst damage
Some folks here like to support and fly cruisers
Some folks like klingons
Some folks like feds

I just like to get inside someone's head, making them react to whatever tempo I set the battle to

My random thought was this:

The Rythm of PvP is determined by cooldowns and durations.

15 seconds System Cooldown.
30 seconds EPTS, duration, 30 seconds global, 60 second cooldown, 30 seconds to next EPtS
10 Seconds Cannon Rapid Fire III, 30 seconds global, 60 seconds cooldows, 30 seconds to Cannon Scatter Volley I
Beam Overload 1 shot in the next 30 second, 30 second global, 60 second cooldown
Transfer Shield Strength 15 secnd duration, 45 second cooldown, 30 second global
Tactical Team, 10 second duration ,30 second global
Enemy RSP running out in 10 seconds
Next Allied Subnuke in 20 seconds
Tactical Initiative ready in the next 30 seconds

What will kill the PVP queues first?

Vasty over-powered premades that take delight in bullying pugs to the point where they just don't want to do it anymore?
Vasty over-powered ships that get released without bug fixes in order to sell more?
Vastly superior players that increase the skill gap?
