So i have a very big issue with the frigates right now and its totally different from most of the rants i suppose.
Everything starts here from the basic logic that new players come with in to the game.
You see amazing game like star conflict, you test out every ship and you think “Oh boy I’m gona fly interceptor pew pew paw paw, im gona be so fast and stuff!” and then they start the game and Empire frigates snipes them with two shots. “cheating! Loser! l2p! Frigates Op! nerf nerf!” Of course you cant blame a new player for not being experience enough with handling him self around frigates at the begging.
Then player jumps in to T2 and think “Fighter maybe! they are mid, durable, fire power, some speed, and those cool abilities! cloak! ninja gangam style ambush YEAH!” And so he goes, he flies and tries to kill a frigate one on one. Another one of those problems where new players can rage quit “SO UNFAIR I TOTALY WOULD CRUSH IT. MICRO TRANSACTIONS SUX! IM PRO THEY NOT UNINSTAL GAME Ace OR STOP PLAYING FRIGATES!” and so on so on.
And then the gears in the brain start to slowly move. Click and click until they light up the bulb! “Im gona play frigate and its so awesome! muahaha nobody can kill me stuff and stuff!” of course they are wrong after a while when they play with more experienced people. But amount of survive ability, weapon power and abilities.
Usually i wouldn’t say everyone thinks this way but pictures bellow make me think so
every third or so mach I play has more frigates then anything else. Mostly standing in one place, technically not helping at all (more interested in killing enemies than sniping those who attack our bomb carrier etc.) And if its not on my team, it is so on the other.
5 fighters and 7 ships doing nothing useful because most of the action for them is hidden behind the asteroids or their rockets cant reach the enemy.
What i’m asking for is to change something about the frigates to change state of minds of players who do so >.> Because believe me from watching general chat low Tier arguments thats the only reason why i think people chose frigates above anything else.
My little rant for today, thank you for reading.
