Help with aiming

So I have to say that I LOVE the GSF expansion but...I can't aim worth crap. Sometimes it feels like the aiming is too sensitive, I'll be on target but if I just slightly move my mouse I'm pretty much doing a barrel roll.
It's just really frustrating with this because I've play well over 15 matches and I've only ever gotten 1 freakin kill.

The controls can be overly sensitive, but practice makes perfect. I use to be like you, but now im consistently getting hits.

It only takes time. That and a opponent thats not flying in circles.
What do you mean they shot a torpedo into the core?!?

Are you aware that you need to point your aiming/steering reticle, i.e., the mouse pointer, at the target's lead indicator to hit, not the "boresight" fixed reticle at the centre of the screen?

Couple of things...#1...hang in there, you'll get it!

- How is your internet connection? Lag can make GS very unresponsive.
- Are you aiming at the "SHIP" itself or the lead indicator? Aim at the little circle thing in front of your need to lead your shots because....uh...well we all know that light based laser weapons travels that travel at the speed of light, are actually slower than starfighters...right?!
- Are you positive the target reticule (the thing above) is RED? If it's not RED, not even your best shot will hit the ship because it's beyond your weapons max range...double check your distance often...I bet half my shots are wasted because of this.

Please...keep trying! It'll get better for you!
