like I noticed: the Dropship and Plasmas....how many shots simply miss...i added some rails meanwhile...
good work ;-)

Thanks for the fightsLook mom I'm on TV
Thanks for the duels, it was lots of fun. Nice change of pace from all the BGS work lately. First testing the Orca against my favorite Fuel Rat and then against you. Still need to fly it more to get much better with it, but it's fun and interesting with the triple banking and chunkiness. Also found out that I have to change my controller setup for pip management. I was fighting the controls quite a bit at the beginning due to it. I have to work on range control and evasion, lot's to learn still.
The Fdl was nice to see from the other side, looks not fun at all compared to my view. But emissive would have wrecked my day.
Next time I use a more conventional build, maybe.
Best thing of all, I finally could sent "gg" in chat
Looking forward to the next duels.
@A C Ender : Here is the Orca build: https://is.gd/tTR47d
That would be interesting, but then I would probably change one or 2 heatsinks to chaff. I had a wake scanner before on it for, ahm, stuff. I just put another heatsink as I knew your FDS doesn't have gimbals on it. I have a shieldless gimbal multi FdL, might use that, or one of the other ones. Even have a META one, but that one is marked for Sun Tu. I can't do rails and PA's at the same time, so I have one or the other.Thanks for the fights
I have to correct my first statement, it WAS a lot of fun, but the second match was very difficult.
My gimbalscrub FdL would've propably wrecked you due to an emissive multi, but that's Elite's stone-paper-scissors (or scb-feedback-gimbal-chaff )
in a nutshell. We have to try that out soon. But overreliance on counterbuilds is the path to the scrub side
Still tempted to put a feedback rail on that FDS, not sure it's worth it though, as I'm out of imphammers and I'm a notorious crap shot with standard rails.
I finished the Orca around 2h before the fight and that was the 3rd test fight with it. I didn't had an issue with the weapons cap, it filled up nicely. Engine cap was a little more constrained and I couldn't boost as much as I wanted. I used 4-2-0 then I expect I'm going to get hit and 0-3-3 after the pass. I prioritized 4-2-0 to give my shields the highest possible multiplier and changed to 0-3-3 only if I knew I was l clear of being hit. Better to not shoot a whole salvo than get hit with 0 pips to system. I went by the "1. full sys then attacked, 2. fill eng to boost, and 3. weapons fill as much as possible without hurting 1. and 2." rule.Interested Orca. I've yet to play with SCB, but I tried to shield tank one with GSR and felt like I had to juggle so much with pips that I either ran out of boost or capacitor and had to make the hard choice of not shooting but boosting, stop boosting but shooting, or less pip to shields while under direct fire. Not something I felt happy with. How do you deal with that?
Also seems I would have to go to Colonia to get some duels with those of you frequenting this thread. If anyone of you have the way past the bubble I'd be happy for a fight or 3.
