Hello! Rookie here, just got myself up to teir 2 a couple of days ago so still pretty fresh, i decided to go down the path of interceptors since i’m a fan of moving fast and dogfighting.
I thought i would be pretty decent against fighters etc but i seem to be terribly useless at dealing damage, i was wondering if someone could help by explaining what i might be doing wrong and ways i can improve?
At the moment im pretty much ready to give up because i am stuck in a cycle of, fighting with my ship, finishing a battle, not having the 60,000 to spend on repairs, fighting with my t1 ships in t2 getting annihilated until i unlock my interceptor again and then starting the whole cycle again.
As you can imagine, not having enough money to repair your only ship is pretty depressing, let alone not being able to save ANY money because you spend all your time stuck in this messed up repair cycle.
i am flying the T2 Dwarf interceptor, my fitting is the 33% damage booster and the hull repairer
Followed by assault plasma cannons with kinetic and em boosting modifiers as well as missiles and homing missiles.
My main problem seems to be actually being able to take down any opponents at all, i find myself being instantly killed with one or two hits from anything, one hits for my shields and another for my hull if not 3 for the full deal.
I will often get myself behind a fighter, literaly so close my nose is bumping their engines, fireing full auto straight into the back of their ship and just doing nothing to their hull, switching damage types just does nothing, even with the damage booster it feels like im just massaging their engines untill they are lucky enough to get a hit or two in and im just dead.
I have tried using pulse lasers but i find the exact same problem.
What do i do =[
