If I'd not have to master ships, every day would be strike day for me.

Would be fun in Deathmatch. Would be lame as hell in Domination.

Suggestions on a day?
I feel like Monday and Tuesday evenings are heaviest, at least on The Ebon Hawk. Usually people trying to cram in matches to finish the weekly on Monday, or get a head start on it on Tuesday.

That being said, there are probably more newbies on Tuesday when the weekly becomes available, and they'd be hard to rope into participation.

So I'd propose Monday, 5pm to 1am EST.

I'd say non-optimal ship day... So Nova, Spear, Rycer, Pike and Clarion.... No FOTM build, No Sheep, No Bomber...

T1 Scouts can be pretty devastating, especially if there are no Gunships or Bombers to slow them down.

I think I'd still do pretty well in my Blackbolt... at least in TDM, especially if my prey are all Strikes.

The point (at least of my original suggestion) is not to make debatable calls about what ships are or are not optimal. My goal is to shoot for a particular pace of play and range of engagement that will hew most closely to the nostalgic LucasArts games of old. Strikes fit that bill, and there's no standing for anyone to judge or debate a decision to just run "Strikes only". If we start picking and choosing from other classes, then things get a lot more complicated, and participation will likely be much lower.

For example, I think certain Bombers and Gunships that opt for all torpedos (without mines or railguns) would probably get along fine in a group of Strikes, but at that point you're micromanaging what builds are allowed.

It's easier to just say, "Strikes only".
