So, i just had the pleasure of meeting that in a game.
I was flying around in my Otranto. And apparently a Light destroyer, with a plasma ram and scrambler pulse can just oneshot me through shields.
My question is: How can i deal with that? He is a lot faster than me. If he gets close, i am blind, then dead. I guess being in the middle of my team would work. But i dislike the whole "giant ball" gameplay, as i find it to be incredibly boring.
But generally speaking, that combination seems incredibly murderous, and the fact that it ignores shields is just bullshit. If i can't see anything, literally the only thing i can do to defend myself is put up shields. Which the ram then ignores.
At first i thought that i was flying incorrectly, or just had to dodge better, or basically anything. But no matter what i tried, the fight always went the same way with me dying incredibly quickly. Is that just a hardcounter to anything flying about alone?
In any other situation so far, i felt that i could win if i just play better. With that one, it seems that the only thing i can do is just stay far, far away from it and do other things. Which really isn't fun.
