Then you have all kinds of people who go in all kinds of fits, warp at random distances from each other and find every other possible way to **** up Laughing So the theoretic 1v1 is pretty much the worst case, in game it happens relatively rarely, so I don't think there's a point in clashing over this.

In this case warping at range doesn't really matter (as long as the Drake lets itself be pointed).

I won't really bother checking all the Drake kills, but they're really VERY often suboptimal in one way or the other(fit, missiles loaded/carried, etc).

To this and to your previous statement about perfect 1v1s being a rarity, I agree to a certain extent, but in this case, we were talking about a theoretical 1v1.

Quote:
Btw, I'd not say it's that hard to catch a Hurri/Vaga in Drake, especially if guy's just orbiting/keeps range.

Sure the "i'm trying to gtfo, OH WAIT TURN AROUND WITH OVERHEATED MWD" trap. Fairly easy to avoid, if you just look at which way the Drake is turning and its speed instead of realizing what's happening once it's too late & you're being webbed.

Again, I feel a bit stupid not having checked the DPS difference on the Cane and the EHP difference on the Drake with faction / Barrage, but it's fairly small, and regardless of ammo the Cane is easily outbrawled with Javs, so my point stands.

450ish dps against you're 550ish dps

Most drake pilots suck, so if you're in a tech II fitted harby and you catch a lone drake pilot, just jump 'em and hope the fight goes well. Twisted Evil

Nah. My shield harb fit gets 700-ish DPS. Really you should abusing ECM drones in a 1va though, so your opponent will be having periods of 20 seconds where he can not lock.



Well, I assumed you were going to be using scorch and trying to kite him, but if you want to close with INMF and die horribly to faction HAMs, then by all means go for it. Rolling Eyes

That is with scorch.

All manner of trolling, smack, epeening, and Internet rage have been more or less culled from this thread.
You can disagree without attacking one another.
