This post shows you have never used frag cannons at all. Frags arent used as ToT weapons, they work best in passes at close ranges. They arent like MCs or lasers that need ToT. Even I know this and I'm a terrible PvPerWow so much tangential posting and goal post shifting, where to start?
Pacs are countered by TLB, because ToT vs agile pilots isn't 100%, unlike beating up on drifty Asps with 100% gimbal powered ToT. Even with the cooldown, Pacs are so ToT dependent vs ships like FDLs, that combining evasion with TLB can cut down on your Pac DPS by 30 to 60%...
Grape is an awesome pilot, and so you are you, but I don't need anyone to tell me what my eyes can see for themselves, and knew before Grapes video. Go check the comments on that video btw, and you'll see I had some caveats for Alex, which are my same ones I'll tell you since they apply here. Namely: watch the ENG capacitor on which ship? The Ferdie? The Chieftain? The Krait? The Conda? The Cobra? The Eagle? The little Sidewinder? These will all have different capacitor behavior with same pip settings. Please try this: go put a Sidewinder with an 1A engineered distributor, and try to get it to the max speed listed in the stats (without using gravity assist). Then go do the same in Ferdie, or a Krait, or even a Conda."Permaboost" isn't a real issue like you think it is. Grape made one popular video about it that has been this community's equivalent of a study saying vaccines cause autism. Its misinformed, overly popular, and has hurt the overall discourse. If you don't want to take my word for it go look at some examples of great flying and watch the ENG capacitor, Yamato posted in this thread and his youtube would be a good place to start.
lolwut? overlooked this one. my evasion of plasma is next to 100%, and that's without tlb. you come with plasmas at me (small ship, light build) you better make them focused or long for your dps to get to 20%, else it's going to be zero. no, i'm not a pvp pro, i don't even pvp in elite anymore.that combining evasion with TLB can cut down on your Pac DPS by 30 to 60%.
Cockpit cat & I are out in the garden too, me with a can of Pepsi Max, Titan is sleeping off this morning's bird. Son is 'endurance testing' his new gaming chair (early birthday pressie we assembled this morning).
Relax only a couple of hours to go before we can all overload the download servers.I feel almost like the Episode in Beavis and Butt-head, where their TV breaks down. The first 30 seconds they are sort of fine, but then Beavis starts acting really weird, saying strange noises, becoming even paler, drooling and shaking uncontrollably.
They went down around 6-7 hours ago.Can someone let me know when this morning the servers when down to do this 8 hour update? This is the only day all I week i have in which I could spend time to play, so Id like to find out in hopes of planning something to do till I can log in proper.
10am UK time, about an hour to go for the 8 hoursCan someone let me know when this morning the servers when down to do this 8 hour update? This is the only day all I week i have in which I could spend time to play, so Id like to find out in hopes of planning something to do till I can log in proper.
