Indeed there are not as many premades around as there were before season 7.
TRH plays against the remaining premades on a somewhat regular basis. In the last 2 weeks we played against:
- Angry Clowns
- Raumpatroille Elysion
- Nova Core
Unfortunately you wont see much of Pandas and Show Me Your Critz these days which is sad...
However TRH is in a position to host awesome internal matches. Sometimes we do 2 or 3 "high level" matches per night. So, whoever is interested participating in fun and clean matches is cordially invited to join our Teamspeak
We just got decimated by a russian fleet which had a very interesting setup, something which really defined what russian is: Quantity! (aka spammed to death). Danubes, tholian fighters and it looked like all of them were running the romulan hyper plasma torpedo along with elite fleet gear from the starbase store. On top of that blend in a regular use of scramble sensors and every conceivable p2w universal console in the game. A UI nightmare.
Well, I admit we had a horrible setup (5 sci captains) which lacked dps overall and total breakdown in coms. So we could have done much better. Still, they won, and one can discuss how "cheesy" and "cheap" it was. But to be damn honest they just did what I have been advocating for a long time: Use everything availble in the game to win, and let no one demand or say what you cannot do or use.
edit: Those fleet elite shields have an insane resistance!!!
