# 1 PVP, Why Not?
09-27-2012, 04:00 PM
Ok, so with these new ships, kdf getting AMS, new doffs that make it so we can rip off buffs like science officers, im at the point of what the hell. Im a supporter of no P2W consoles, but i think im about to give up. I been finding more and more cheese being used against me, more so than people not using it. And its kinda like a forest on fire. They fight fire with fire now by pre burning sections of forest to stifle or stop the fire. i do not think that if i use P2W it will stop others from using it, however I can at least give them a taste of there own tactics. I will be using the new science ship and it will have consoles. And i will be bringing the pain at the first sight of siphons or AMS, ISO, GravAnc, accaton, subspacejump,theta, etc if i see ANYTHING, expect me to target you.

Other than that, GLHF, new ships look cool

Yep. Not many care about balance or anything but winning. May as well do as they do.

Personally I just don't play it any more, I'm having more fun playing other games and have no desire to get permacheesed.

spent 50$ today, plan on just enough to get the third time piece set item (the lobi store one). if i happen to get a timeship awesome, if not. **** it.

borderlands 2 is way better then this crap.

ill just wait till the next over powered ship/set/item/whatever is released and probably do the same thing.

Crappy PvP balance and poor KDF PvE..... such a setting does not instill confidence.

Spent some zen I had left from better times, got some toys. Dont care - never played P2W in PvP (not even DOFFs, as stupid as it may sounds) so sold most of them on Exchange. But I will try the isometric charge on my tac (Fed, of course) - wonder what the frack this thing is. Looks like good counter to carrier spam though.

you really ot to use doffs, as hate able as they can be, they are currently the most important piece of ship equipment you can have. whatever your flying, you should start with 3 shield distro doffs, and enjoy the same very nice shield heal every one else enjoys. then maybe 2 evasive conn doffs, you can use evasive so often you can build tactics around it.

i run ISO with a tac captain on a ship with 3 sci consoles, all with particle gen consoles in them. and warp plasma 3 too, would be a huge waist of consoles just for ISO. un tac buffed, the 4th strike will deal 25k damage in a non standard damage type thats not easily resisted. it one shots carriers, or anyhting else even if i can get them stuck close enough in the 600-1200 dot warp plasma. these are not typical results of course, the bounce range is kinda small. its a middle finger to runabouts and those that use them, and now i guess siphon drones too.

Hate to say it but since f2p the game become a p2w. That's the reality no matter how much we like it or hate it. The problem every player should ask him/herself is if he/she wants to open the wallet or not. You're not opening it, it will take a big grind fest to get all the resources and gear you need. You may be lucky to get some nice doffs as drop/reward missions, but you won't get them all (I mean purples). You still need to buy some. You may grind Kerrat for months, you still may not get all your consoles and weapons you want. You'll still end up in exchange. I think overall game economy isn't a bad thing, even in this very "pay for everything" style, you need to either spend time in the game, either open you wallet, pretty much that's it. And for some people that don't have too much time on their hands, time is money... So there is only one choice left, lol.
