I don't really mind TBs on a ship since there's opportunity costs and cooldowns. My only real beef is that the resists (especially AP:O) don't work nearly as well as they should.

But I love my fireworks
Honestly I never thought about lag. For the future I will refrain from using it during battle unless all my power levels drop to 0. Than all bets are off.

And of course I might use it before/after the battle.

I'd like to learn of course, so when I get into it more, I won't be ticking anybody off, at least in my interactions with fellow PvPers.

Just doing my best to learn of course.
1. As a pvper myself I can say I play to win!

2. I pvp because I believe theres more challenge in other humans than in AI (pve)! That is why I also hate and only do grinding best items on pve missions for pvp.

3. Im very interested in game mechanics and the most efficent ways to use those against other players!

4. Im observing my own performance very seriously to become better! When I or my team fails I have to find out why!

5. I respect all players which follow the mentioned points in a pvp match!

Yes it lags. On my previous computer (laptop) such stuff especially in solar map was unbearable. Truth is, back then there was not such horibble trash around in pvp as well. On new computers it probably does not matter, still I hate it when I see some stupid bug flying around doing fireworks all over the place.

Ah, thats why I saw that being used all the time in Ker'rat.

The most basic etiquette of PvP is no cheese (except in Ker'rat. Its the PvP moshpit)
and Everybody fights, nobody quits.
