Doesn't the answer to that question depend on what ship you are commanding yourself? So, what is your ship?

You've fought this guy so many times and still don't know. He flies a Bird of prey.

I guess that explains why he flies the zombie builds... he isn't really there. Perhaps he was posting on the forums all those times Mini was trying to bomb him. lmao

could that be the problem? is the hardened escort that is bug ship simply too powerful to be alphaed in the traditional bop manner? ill accept this as truth eventually, but there has got to be a way...........

boardign party! thats it....

*to the drawing board

A BoP should be able to hit-and-run the Jem'Hadar Attack ship... if that is seen as an acceptable tactic in the match (for some reason, some people seem to believe it is not). Cloak, approach, wait until everything is ready for an alpha strike, hit the alpha strike buttons, decloak, attack, retreat, cloak, repeat.

but alas, the jem ship (wisely) holds his buffs for the last possible second, cycles two omegas and two tac teams so there isnt any window of vulnerability. vm is met with red matter capacitor. even with jump console nigh impossible to get a psw3 on a bug (1v1)

i could have had a bunch of bad rolls but no. trico crits bouncing off em! ill come back later and see if any worthy ideas popped up. but yes logimo, that is exactly what i do, problem is, it doesnt work vs bug ships who know whats going on

Well, that must be the problem then, um, emoejoe was it? You must not have a very good alpha strike...

The bugship has been wrongly buffed that it is in a class by itself at least until fleets start unlocking more ships. The worst thing by far I've encountered is the premades that are all flying lockbox ships. There is nothing quite like running into a team of bugships. It makes one wonder if these pilots actually do have any skill at all or are just hiding behind this broken ship. I can, at least have a little respect for a pilot that pugs. Not much...but a little.
