Thar ga is not that good. I play both thar ga and covert ops, and in the end I feel like I have the same effectiveness : Killing everything without any problem. Even enemies thar ga aren’t a problem. I can kill any thar ga in 1vs1 without flying one myself.
They are powerful for sure. OP, definitely. But far from being able to 1vs12. The only problem with thar ga is their big regen. If they remove combat shield, put a 1mn cooldown on combat reconstructor, and make that matter absorber works only on assits, the problem would be solved.
They may have more damage and mobility then other ships. But IMO it’s fine. Because they also have maluses, such as self damage and healing debuff. If thar ga is OP, it’s because the big regen make these maluses useless.
Also, the gun numbers may looks big. But standard ships can achieve it too.
Taking crit into account, an approximate 9K DPS without charge with 7deg spread (nothing will hit with so many spread)
And 3k DPS with full charge (3 seconds) with 2.5 deg spread (20-30% won’t hit).
OMG THAR GA IS SO OP, NERF !
Then, we have this :
Considering it’s rank 12, it also has 20% final damage buff.
Same, with crits, 4k11 base DPS and 5k DPS with the 20% damage. With only 1.3 spread (so no miss).
Both builds have 20k survavibility (50 resist buff for inty), inty has 520 m/s, thar ga has 420.
The only difference between them ? Thar ga has more regen. That’s it. Even alien intuition has it’s equivalent with the inty (129% damage buff Orion).
There are tons of other options. Look at them.
And, to finish :
Dealt more damage on my little inty then Fix and Salad
Where the score speaks by itself (And there’s no thar ga in the first 6 places in my team)
