PvP Harassing Deciat Gankers

I would definitely avoid using the Vette for PvP until you get the hang of things. You should also give the Chieftain a try. It's one of the better PvP ships, especially to learn in.
I see a new Hacker thread incoming... "that Vulture blew my precious Corvette out of the sky, couldn't even target it and my gimbals were hacked too... And who is this o7o7o7 guy anyways?"

Gnihihi...
 
I am quite surprised that HP accused him of hacking. There were none of the classic signs at all, just a straight up case of low effort flying on his part and a solid job on threeofseven's part. I mean, have you ever seen a mamba offer such easy layups to an Anaconda before, one that isn't even toggling faoff? I think it was a case of Harry thinking it really was a mostly harmless noob and there was simply no way they could have a well engineered ship, much less the presence of mind to fly it. Never crossed his mind that he was dealing with an experienced players alt.

As a sidebar, I really dont like the mamba as a concept.

Im dreading the day when it becomes the staple go to for CG murder hobos, as it'll probably be the death bell for small ship blockade runners.

I'm not sure whether I should keep the Mamba around as a pursuit vessel or just convert it to an armed explorer. Seems to work well enough as part of a wing, but in a straight up fight it's mostly a lackluster combination of a Krait and FDL.

Not convinced it's a major threat to blockade runners dither, due to it's modest maneuverability. It can certainly keep them in mass lock slightly longer if they run in a strait line, but without support it's not a big threat to an evasive flyer.
 
When he ran crimes on it's possible the gankers left annoyed. Happened to me more then once shrugs
Running crimes-on in a build that cripples, but doesn't destroy, is probably the most annoying thing to do to a ganker at Farseer's anyway. Since he's wanted there he won't be able to dock and repair, leaving him with an irritating round trip to go and get fixed and come back. A rebuy is just credits.

I was already wanted, I don't or can't dock long before anyone shows up to "annoy" me.

When I went on hiatus back when the forums got unnecessarily altered, everyone was saying the Mamba was no good. Did something change, or did people just finally warm up to it?

It's "Ok" but nothing special.

It's a great "Ganking" ship as you can slap a bunch of Frags and a strong shield with boosters on it. Other than that the ship is Meh IMO

That's exactly the nightmare scenario I'm concerned about facing. A two man FDL/Mamba paring is going to either be able to keep you masslocked long enough to kill you, or out turn you if you try to stay close.

I think boost and highwake might be the only trick left with such a situation.

Might have to get the blueprints for my 'battle cattle' type 9 out.

Not really. It's just got the high speed to keep a runner in mass lock for a decent length of time.

Which frags? If you have a build you would care to share, I would be much obliged. Thank you, Replicant.

What do you put in the huge with this frag build of yours?
Uhhhhh. Not my build Krash Lol!
I've just seen many run it and they usually just slap a large frag in the Class 4 slot :p

HD Stacked Frag Mamba? YUCK!!!! :p
