I play as a team member, I am a Level 16, I have logged 79 battles in 13 hours 29 minutes, mainly play the Destroyer because the other players pick the other ships so I play what I think the team needs. I tank damage and I turtle when necessary to recover energy. My Gora has the Ballistic Cannons, Rocket Turrets, Heavy Nuke Torp (Goliath), Disruptor Missile, Medium Autoguns, Energy Generator and the stock Officer Briefings. My score is pretty consistent between 1650 and 1875 - rare to be lower and even rarer to score higher. Yet I see other Gora pilots that score in the 2300's regularly. I think I mimic their play style pretty well - you only learn by doing and watching those that do better than yourself. Why are my scores not breaking that 2K barrier, what could I be missing?
And yes I have played the healer and scored higher, yes I've played the cruiser and scored higher but I want to get into the 2K and beyond with that destroyer, what do I need.
