I didn't do this in beta because I thought it was silly, but crashing to refill missiles is an important thing to do in order to maintain combat effectiveness. It seems rather silly to me though.

There will be components from other ships that can refill your missiles.

Then use your lasers. Your missiles aren't your primary weapons.

Or I could just crash, and come back way more effective. Its not exactly a crippling problem since its easy to resolve by crashing, but its still silly.

I may be wrong here, but if you suicide, don't you give the enemy team points (at least if anyone of them hit you)? You also take yourself out of the battle for some time, which most of the time vastly lowers your utility as opposed to just keep fighting.

So while death effectively refills your missiles, I wouldn't call it efficient.

It's also the only way to repair your hull if you don't have that specific companion ability, right ?...
It just seems bad. I think sitting immobile near a controlled point should resupply and repair your ship over time.

Although some other posters in this thread have already covered what I am about to say, I thought it might be good to get some yellow text on this! It is true, in the future the Bomber has some components which can help their allies in not only refilling ammunition, but also restore your hull as well!

Some things to keep in mind for when you suicide:
  • You are removed from the battle for a while, that isn't necessarily the best scenario.
  • By dying, you are giving the other team a point towards their victory.
  • You are granting assists to any players who had recently damaged you which will contribute to granting them Requisition.
  • Personal note: I love to play the game of "How many people can I kill when I have no rocket pods left while my ship is on fire before I die." I highly recommend this game.
Just thought I would bring some of that to light, mainly that the Bomber will address some of your concerns and that you suiciding is beneficial to the opposing team. Also, play my game

Ah that clear that up , thanks. I play/played a different version of your game , I was on fire and stayed that way for about 6 mins , I couldn't kill anyone at the time as I was new but I did enjoy people trying to catch me as I piloted magnificently .

Cheers,

and lose 5-15 seconds waiting for respawn, then having to F3 20+ seconds to where you were to begin with..without engine power for 10+ seconds..
