i wanna shoot at somehtinng that wont die and take hits of my choosing dmg type. I wanna build test. And i want scores. I wanna tell noobs.. try my mission, when u score high u are ready for pvp. No cynical cookie cutter guides (i luv mancom)! No convoluted and (ruined becus) craptic sponsored camp. Just a mission. You ace it if ur aces in pvp, u fail and get fedback when u dont.
If u follow, wanna help, have any thoughts or ideas, or just wanna troll. im all ears
npcs offer such a poor challenge, that not a single one of them in any sort of fight with a player ship, could ever be a litmus test for pvp 'readyness'
NPCs as a whole yes.
I don't know much about the foundry but if it's possible to create things like time based challenges (requiring spike) as well as durability stress tests it might be useful to try out aspects of a build.
I see what jj is going for, not sure how possible it is because I never use the foundry.
I do think you could create a series of missions that might be able to stress test and tutor players on specific aspects that could be applicable to better ship building and piloting skills.
