Ideally, every other ship class's part of the pie equally. And a missile buff could do just that.

You don't speak for me. Kindly keep that in mind going forward.

"Strikes need improvement" was my all inclusive sentiment. You disagree?

He considers himself a strike ace. Kind of like Krix with the T2 GS. Just go with it.

I'm going to say it again - you don't speak for me. If you have a problem with that, ask your higher power for guidance.

I have decided I am going to speak for you anyway. Thanks for your concern.

Just for background's sake, I've played this game since Beta, Collector's Edition, and GSF since it's inception. I have dueled with Drakolich on Bastion for years and we have had a blast playing against eachother....

I play nothing but strikes.... I have mastered all of my strike fighters, but I normally play Pike/Clarion because as someone said earlier in the thread, strikes aren't really meant in their current inception to be solo superwarriors. They are game managers, multi-role ships which can assist other ships in several different ways. Strikes are DESIGNED to not be specialist glass cannons or snipers... They are designed to mix it up with everything out there.

But the thing I would like to point out is that everyone here so far has been saying strikes can't do damage or are worthless against the other ship types.... so I submit the following:

It is not on the class of ship so much as it is the skill of the pilot and knowing what equipment he has, his missiles, cannons, abilities, and most importantly, the co-pilot.

I fly a pike with Rusk because he gives me faster secondary reload times, and his ability is a DoT if I hit an enemy ship with lasers.... this allows me to reach out and touch people much faster and if they decide to run, give them a going away present that may/may not kill them.

If you wanted to buff Strike fighters, I would say give them an increase in missile range or missile lock-on time. For the range buff, it has to be measured to each type of missile (my proton torps hit at 11km, my concussion missiles at 7.5km) so they don't become so powerful that I can snipe a gunship with proton torps and he can't nail me. it has to be competitive and fun/challenging...
He who follows, might be a fool, but who is the more foolish: The fool or the fool who follows him?

I've decided you can't.
