# 1 Torp-B'rel in PuG PvP?
02-13-2013, 04:45 AM
What exactly is so horribly wrong bringing a Sci-Torp-B'rel (yeah, with nerfed tric mines and mostly useless Sci Powers) to PuG PvP ?

Besides the things you've pointed out, I'm not sure. What's the ship name? Maybe THAT'S the problem?

I.K.S. PUGSUCK may not be the 'win friends and influence people' name to go with.

I'm sure someone here can help you get to the bottom of this, if they just had more info to go on.
If I don't respond to posts on this forum don't be offended. I don't sub or follow any of them.

LOL
no its not the name for sure.
Im not using such things for names

It is more the whining from the Feds or even "Team"-mates just for using Tric-Mines & Torps. Wich works alarming good because nobody seems to use any counters or even tries to evade my Mines. Even though they know that i am around.

Plenty of people still find tric mines a bit offensive.

Honestly throw some quantums on there mines and torps.

3 quantum 1 harpang
1 quantum mines + one breen / time torp / tric torp

Thats been my favorite setup for awhile. With 3 Quantum dmg units the quantum mines do a very decent amount of dmg... and people are even more likely to run them over.

I haven't played it in a bit but I think the base dmg on my Quantum torps all min maxed out with dmg units is just under 9k unbuffed.

So not wanting to buy just another ship I was planning on buying a Brel for cruising around in pvp

I don't play high level(expensive) pvp I just pug and Kerrat

Is it workable to run one and kill people and be a functional part of a team

Now I know I'm not going to be running top of the line for dps or spike damage but then again in my other bops I didn't but I always was there abouts top of the pile on kills

its main advantage is the fact that it can fire torps and use many sci-powers without decloaking. it decloaks for 3 sec and than cloaks again. so its really only useful as a torp-bop.
It IS fun with trics and with the right timing you'll have tons of dmg/kills if you are part of a team

For the normal DHC madness the hegh'ta (wich is free) is better.

In the next days i will test some other combinations ...and the amount of whining

GW 3 + EWP + Scramble (maybe some PSW too, for good measure) on a cloaked B'Rel Transphasic bomber is just plain nasty.
The first we heard of getting new PvP maps "soon" was in August of 2010. We're consistently told something will be coming with the "next" update. Absolutely nothing has come to PvP since launch.

I think it's finally time Cryptic stopped stringing us along, don't you?

Nothing I suppose.

I reserve the right to VM and generally cornhole any Sci BoP that attempts such a tactic though.

The only thing reasonable enemies are likely to complain about is the use of Trico mines + dispersal patterns.

They're clearly overpowered, and aside from the very minor nerf they took Borticus is working on another nerf.

So that should be a clear indicator you are using a problematic and overpowered item. Expect people to dislike you for it, or switch to a different mine set.

Tbh with you I'd rather get shot down by a dpb3 trico set than the usual fed cheese fest I hold you in one position for 200seconds bull that's going on nowadays
