Well it's funny because it's when my teams are laging way behind that people start saying what needs to be done. take the healers down, since i dont have much faith in stats, K/D ratios and so on, i chose to develop a playstyle designed to counter the camping circus we see in 80% of the games. When i'n with players willing to get tactical/offensive it works.
You know what is funny? The game where I sit on top of the scoreboard with my destroyer while you were screaming "Vette OP!!!!" in the opposing team.
If you wasn't so blinded by your rage you would have been a very good player, but pity.
Again, if you can't kill vettes, don't try to. Pick out high priority targets. I'm usually the top player in the game by shooting only high priority target. Heal ball? Amped Storm drain to the healer, 1 shot them from 3k range away. Arty? one shot. Destroyer? One shot. Vette? Evasive maneuver + scrambler pulse + flak. Dread? Ignore, unless he burned his armor amp, in that case, amped storm drain.
I'm also leveling all 3 vettes right now. And I can assure you I feel much better in a destroyer than in a vette, and I usually get more score in destroyer too.
Yeah sure, i do eventually end up top of my team from time to time, only there aren't any predators Corvettes in those games and my team mates have got enough guts to take the game to the other team if they set up one of those anti-game camping cirtcus.
Scrambler pulse? NOT an option for me, it would take another away, sorry but you gear up your ship specifically to take them down, the whole point being, players needs different options to play different playstyles. Again i noticed, you donlt tell us what you play, heavy or light Destroyers, and HOW. Which in turn imply that if a player chose a lighter ship for speed and maneuvrability he will need different options to do so and that the offensive playstyle suited to the light Destroyers/Dreadnought is not favoured by the lack of efficiency of short range defense and their inherent low HP. The options you chose take the place of other, like Jump drive and anti-missile lasers, so forget about your gear-up. You're beside the points.
