So i got Vigo today. This is pice of junk realy. So much time wasted. Can't play this game anymore. Cruiser, vetts op. The game is looking good but gameplay is sucks! Thanks god i don't waste my money for it. The most dumbed this is warp engine is so far away to achive for Vigo. who is working on balance? remove this person!
How about givong us examples of how its bad, from my opinion Vigo is a good mid range destroyer with good modules for any range. Being succesful in a match amounts mostly due skill and knowing your ships strengths and weaknesses. Corvettes are op at all, they are glass cannons who get killed instantly when they mess up their attack order, mostly corvettes get kills by killing unsuspecting players or just plain bad people
If you use warp jump on Vigo you are basically feeding.
The Vigo relies on energy gen for tanking or evasive maneuver for roaming.
If you have a squad to support you, you can run module reboot for max burst damage.
If the lack of officer briefings is the problem you're having, go with the evasive maneuver build, which does not need briefings to work.
The Vigo is a destroyer with balance stats, the goal of this ship is to deal with enemy tacs, arty escort, secondary tank or win your 1V1s with other destroyer. Know the fleet comp of both teams to adjust your playstyle.
Vigo is powerful - just learn how to use it. If you cant learn then any ship will be bad. Repeater guns on Vigo is accurate but got slow projectile speed so lead your targets a lot.
Git gud, Sigma. I cream opponents with my Vigo.
The Vigo? Seriously? That's one complaint I've never seen before. The Vigo is a work horse. Load up weapon boosters, weapon amp, and energy generator to tear through whatever ship you'd like. Or evasive maneuvers and torps or storm missiles. I really can't find anything wrong with the Vigo. It's just an all-around great ship.
With the right Officer Briefings the Vigo is an incredible ship.
Insane range, with great DPS across all ranged, with weaponbooster and energy to weapons you can easily force sniper out of the sky. While its flak completely destroys corvettes at close range. It has access to some of the best rockets ingame, like Storm Missiles which can 1-shot a lot of enemies THROUGH shields even.
All while being very tanky, with solid agility (Vindicta Briefing) - a friend of mine also uses Rataliator + Energy generator which makes him near indestructible.
Not to mention how gamedeciding Weaponbooster Pulse can be.
Ow and don't forget HOW it fires - no random spray (opposed to the Blud for example), but a fixed pattern which rewards learning how to use it properly on level of efficiency other guns will never reach.
The Vigo is anything but bad.
Storm missiles are one of the first modules you get too... With module amper, you are hitting over 30k damage. That's more HP than most ships have. Sorry mate, but this is situation where "git gud" is applicable.
Yeah the Vigo is amazing
I've just upgraded vigo, so here's my take. It's slow - almost as slow as lorica. It's also pretty fragile, which means you should really only use it when there are healers on your team - but given that this is the only scenario in which I recommend using it, you might forget about the whole warp thing and just stick to basics like weapon amplifier or module reboot (oddly enough, I'm using warp because of how slow this thing is).
Having said that, if you do have healers on your team, with weapon boosters/amp, it has the best guns in T4. It even beats corvette amped guns in terms of raw power (but, alas - when the enemy is nearby it fires either the top guns or the bottom ones, making your aim always off and having to readjust). I do have problems dealing with corvettes primarily because flack guns lack range - and given how slow it is, moving closer to corvettes as they fire at you is not feasible. For dealing with dreads, I'm using a disruption missile - it does wonders when the dread crawls by with its armor amplification on. For groupies, I am using the goliath missile.
By the way - you CAN fit it with warp as soon as you buy this ship. Just fit it with T3 warp.
You can also fit it with goliath torpedo from t3.
