# 1 PVP Dreadnaught Tac Captain
07-03-2012, 12:55 AM
Hello all!

Back from a long break, wanna get my tac's back up and running for pvp!

Always liked my dread, wanted to go phaser lancing. I'm looking for a captain, gear, and BO ability build for a PVP Dreadnaught. I've found a few helpful links....

http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...ht=dreadnaught

However nothing really solid. I am posting this in the PVP forums as well in the event it is more suited there.


Thank you all in advance!!

The best thing you can do is to do the assault cruiser build on that ship. The dread has the same boff and console layout. The cannons don't work as well in PvP due to the slow turn rate. I wouldn't put more then one cannon on it.

...You don't PvP much with a dreadnought, do you?

Galaxy-X =/= Sovereign... if you're trying to fly it like one, then all I can say is thanks for the easy win.

@OP: Brittishtar beat me to the punch. Give that thread a read and I'd be happy to answer any/all questions afterward.

First of all: Dreadnaught and PvP are 2 words that can't be together in a phrase. Sorry but that crusier is totally crap for pvp

Second: Go to PvP subforum if u want true pvp advices.

Or you can do what the bias idiot above me states. After all, to the trolls in that section of the forum, if you're not using their build in either an Ody, escort, carrier, or Intrepid you're an idiot and get nothing but 4+ pages of trololol's without any actual viable response.

I suppose that'd work too.

Those who you call idiots and trolls are some of the best PvP players in this game, they are part of the top pvp fleets, and they have FAR more experience than you in PvP, so instead of be offended, try to learn something about them.

If u want answers why dreagnout is bad for pvp we can give u tons of it, and prove it to you in the game, but for experiencie i can tell that ppl like u won't listen, because u don't want to understand why dreagnout is bad, u only want to be right

Anyway u don't need to be an PvP top player for figure out that the dreagnout is one of the worst ships for PvP. Just with a little understanding about game and pvp mechanics u can figure out

I took a fast look at your dreagnouh pvp guide post, first of all is patetic that u recommend the use of graviton pulse and AMS for a pvp build, the need of those p2w consoles is the clear prove that u build is fail. Any serious pvp match have all those consoles banned.

Take your best cannons build, and a i take my escort and i show u how i can dance around you without u being able of even take one of my facing shields (except maybe with the alpha strike, that maybe can take down my facing shield, but for sure that won't kill me at all). With a FAW build u can do a little better work with full broadside and 8 beams, maybe with luck it will take u like 15mins kill just a simple escort, if u don't die before that...my preditction is that in the best of the cases u can get a 0-0 if u do a good zombie build.

And well, nothing to say about 5v5 matches, if the other team decent proper healings and coordination, u will do negible dmg, and u will die very quick.

If a "good PvPer" is only repeating, "you suck" over and over, the end result is it's nothing more than a troll being a troll, regardless of how well he can whip that escort around.

His skill at that point becomes irrelevant.

Much like the common 9-12 year olds in Halo.

Every ship can be made awesome in the hands of a good PvPer.
