Lag Industries doesen't really do premades. We have maybe 8 fleet members that LIVE for PVP, we've done STFs out the wazzo and find them boring now. PVP was the obvious answer.

When five of us group up to PVP there's no limit to console types and of those 8 players only 2 even use P2W, and ironically are the weakest of our players. I could say "Nah, dont use that" - but at the end of the day I know how good they (the fleet members are) and i know if they can make it work or not. So it's not really a big deal. The only time we really interact befroe a match is when picking ships, I'm always an escort, mostly because I personally don't like cruisers or sci ships and it's just a bit slow for me. And partly because i'm too lazy to re-do the skills for my other toons who have had no skill points spent on them since the skill tree re-spec in... Season 5?

We tend to run with a cruiser or two of some sort, a few escorts and one of us might break out a sci build somebody is working on. But I wouldn't say we were a "premade" as it's just not worth the hassle lol.

I dont agree, I baught my BUG the same way you baught your energy consoles, or your batteries. I used EC's. So the line between P2W and not P2W is different from personal opinion.

This is the cunning little trap our Overlords have laid for you and others like you that don't think things through.

If a friend of mine Buys a lovely new American Made Fender Strat for a grand... and while over at my place decides he really loves the vintage first run vinyl collection I got.

I decide I would love that strat he just bought so I says to him... hey take these 10 very rare albums I got to start your own collection.... but I want your strat.

Ok now at the end of story time... how much money did Fender make ?

The overlord allow us to sell a bunch of our pay 2 win... cause it make it somewhat legit.

They allow us to trade game time played (Diithium) for REAL world money (Cpoints)... no they won't convert those Cpoints back to cash... but fact is they don't enter the system with out the overlords being paid, EVER.

They have other little tricks to to keep butts in the game that make the spenders stick around... yes I don't pay any of my money. I don't get any fancy stuff though if the people that do pay leave. The costs also go up if there numbers go down... look at current exchange numbers for proof. The fewer that pay the higher the exchange price goes.

The overlords even design things to make there game seem busier then it is... all the "event" are just nice ways to get you to go to those early PvE Systems so the new F2P kids don't think the game is dead... "race across the universe" hehe ya.

So ams is nono but mk xii purple consoles and 100m mk xii accx3 is ok ?. Grav pulse is nono but +1 ships and 100m doff are ok ?

Some consoles need tweaking but they are here to stay so adapt.



It sometimes sucks when you have a fleet that wants a match with no p2w but jump in with 4 ody and a bug ship running all phasers and 4+ extenz with all the uber ec doffs consoles and weapons.
