Not a particularly close match, but here is me as a scout.

Nice, great flying! Thanks for the upload! I have about 35k Req built up on my Blackbolt, I should really get him upgraded x)

Thanks. With the addition of bombers and their drones/mines next patch you may see a few more blackbolts with their addition of EMP Field to disable them.

Yeah, another reason why I love my Proton Torpedoes, that 10k M range will help me stay way the hell away from those Bombers & their traps. Suffice to say I am still not looking forward to Bombers, but that is a rant for another thread xD

I do consider myself an above average GSF player, but that's mostly chalked up to the fact that I'm comfortable with the control scheme (I played freelancer for years, which is almost identical to GSF's combat system). I get the feeling, though, that a lot of my kills are probably unupgraded ships, things have definitely gotten harder over time as more people play more matches.
I know what you mean about Sting/Flashfire and non-upgraded ships for sure. My best matches have all been in my mastered Pike--some of which I never died and ran out of both missiles. I suspect any match where I do 30-40k damage with double digit kills and no deaths is mostly due to the level of their ships. When you hit someone who isn't very upgraded with a concussion w/target engines, its over. The mastered Flashfire/Stings with double missile lock break and distortion field though are TOUGH to score hits on and I use barrel roll if they ever get in a good position and usually we stalemate until others arrive or someone decides to do something else.

You bring up a good point on the multiple Gunships too--if I spot one its usually easy prey (I fly with power to shields almost all the time) but when you run into the groups that chain together where they cover each other and use the ion love tap you can just get stunlocked.

Also, is there ANYTHING in this game more satisfying than a critical hit from a Proton Torpedo? They are so hard to land and when you do and it crits it is extremely satisfying (especially if they had full shields) because if they survive a hit or two with heavies w/shield piercing and its over.

The final two tiers really make them shine. 2x speed and then range extension to 11500--I look forward to hunting bombers.

That quick lock-on time 'cause a lot of people to react with boosts & what not. Even if you don't get to fire, you at least force them to move.
yep, i love flying my fresh scout without any upgrades when I'm in the mood. had 4 chasing me around a sat for at least 4 minutes. My own mistakes killed me (sheared the edge that sent me spinning)

I will be one of those bombers (mine layer most likely) and I assure you I won't be out in the open. Couple that with 2900 shielding per arc (before converting power to shields), a 39% hull damage reduction when properly spec'd and fully mastered, you will be looking at a hard target to say the least. Numbers were based off of the current pts Razorwire.

Can a proton torpedo's damage be reduced? It says "ignores all armor and shields". Also I think they announced they are reducing the Bomber's shields to match Gunships.

Bombers are gonna be slow & squishy. You better have a good hiding spot, 'cause one minute of exposure against a Strike Fighter or a Scout & it's over, you're not gettin' away x)
