hey guys.. ive heard alot of talk about tier 4 ships smashing tier 3.. now ive just got my T3 destroyer.. do i grind away in rookie to upgrade my T3 to be atleast semi competitive.. or do i take a base level T3 into veteran matches.. and more than likely gst stomped..
Ok, so the key with Tier III ( for me at least ) is to play Onslaught mode. Your goal should be to get in on killing the command ship whenevr possible and kill all assault ships that you can find. - BUT - when against other players try to play for the kill assist. So do not go in like you are a Imperial Star Destroyer because you will die.
For Modules: Unlock Tier III Storm Missles ASAP, Tier III torpedos, keep Weapon Boost, and you can keep Module reboot as it is very handly to get a second volly of missles out.
Do not just stick with the Destroyer though.
Unlock the Akula Dreadnought too.
For the Dread unlock modules: Plasma broadsides, keep vulture missles or get torpedos, keep anti-missle lasers, and get Tier III Armor boost.
IMPORTANT Never Never Never upgrade the Armor Boost past Tier III ( so yes unlock AND purchase Tier III armor boost but NEVER unlock and purchase Tier IV Armor boost on a Tier IV dread ever) Tier III is actually much better than Tier IV and you can use the Tier III boost on a Tier IV Dread BUT ONCE YOU BUY THE TIER IV YOU CAN NEVER AGAIN USE THE TIER III and that is why it is a huge mistake to do so, ok? - got it?
