Any ship can put out tremendous damage and K/D ratio if flown well against lesser pilots.

These are both from me in my Blackbolt.

Also, try to use Ion Railgun when you have red buff

You'll thank me later

I actually use that component too on my Novadive, which is basically built as a pure scout/gunship hunter.

It works quite well: your base shields are the highest a scout can have (with no reactor at least), and it's a great way to keep your engine power topped up and go scouting around the map/going after pesky gunships. Trick is to use the CD early on, so your shields are recharged by the time you reach your target.

Though to be honest, I'm not sure if Quick Charge shields' engine regen bonus makes them more useful anyway.

Nice score, Shayd. Too bad you're a space fascist.

I'd be surprised. In my experience, scouts have trouble surviving long enough to get away and let their shields start regenerating. They're pretty vulnerable to burst damage, imo.

Eh Bombers are not so bad in DM. In domination however they are very telling. If you are outnumbered in bombers then you are really hard up against it to win. They can hug satalite and let their AI controlled minions deal with whoever comes to try and dig them out.

More people need to start to gear for the bomber counter. I dont think i have seen 1 single case of an EMP blast from a scout or missile from a strike on Harbringer yet.

Until people start to use the counters, bombers will dominate that wargame type/.

At least in DM they are kinda forced out in the open and you can usually get them with GS shots or Proton torps without having to get in range of their mines/drones.

<nervous laugh> Ehhehehe, no need to keep talking about my Blackbolt and Shield-to-Engine Transfer on a public forum. It's crap, really. I mean who would be so dumb as to sacrifice their own shields in a deathmatch? Ehehehe....

LOOK OVER THERE -> http://files.enjin.com/548264/Uploads/Bomber.jpg More evidence that Bombers are overpowered and everyone should play them in Deathmatch!

I can't believe that when I got Proton Torpedo crit on a bomber last night he still had so much health left over that my follow up Concussion Missile still needed about 6 heavy laser hits following it to kill him. They can take some punishment.

2400 hull will do that. It'd take three torpedoes to bring one down. Four if they use Hydro-spanner or a Repair Drone.

That is nothing.
Lets see some of the FF/Sting pilots screenshot their top scores in deathmatch.
Will you call them OP and beg for a nerf or congratulate them on having mad skills because that is the same ship you like?

The bomber sucks at killing, and if it is farming you then I'm sorry, but your team is seriously *********** up.

What are you doing? not shooting drones on purpose? Trying to park inside of the mines? Parking behind stationary bombers?

You should not be able to complain about this ship unless you have one.
Buy it, try it, then come back here and tell us how badly it needs a nerf.

Missile drones are bugged and need a fix, but asking for a nerf is just the same QQ we heard from people getting beaten by better players since day one.

Nothing to say other than "look how hard I got beat, nerf that ship!"
