Maybe he killed you so fast because you are a baddie flying an non-upgraded ship.
Instead of posting on the forums, try upgrading your shields.
I went into a match, on my new republic character. I'm using an unmodified strike fighter. Everything is regular.
There was an imperial pilot in a deathmatch that was consistently two-shotting me. I'm not talking about missile/missile combos. I'm talking about head-on dog-fight, he hit me with exactly two shots from his laser cannons and destroyed my ship instantly.
Is this even possible in Starfighter?
Obviously, he ended the game with 18 kills.
Nothing about this feels legit to me.
