Just got smoked by an asp… yep, embarrassing, especially considering I had his shields low & he was hitting boosters – I was keeping away from the dangerous end, but suddenly I lost all shields & 50% hull.
I died boosting with my tail between my legs.
Anyway, I asked of his loadout (he was bounty hunting, non PP aligned – so he probably did well). Turned out to be a good bloke, asp, 4 rails & 2 missiles which took me out.
Nek minnit, Vulture, again – fun sparring, I was winning and again in one hit, lost shields. Being the stubborn bastard I am, I carried one & limped back to hostile base with 30% hull.
So what I am saying, I think rocket attacks are back… @vyvian got a new loadout for me?
Looks like we’ve both been subjected to the ASPs 6 guns of goodness.
I’ve been saying for some time that it’s a good ship, it has a really high DPS for its cost (even though DPS isn’t the focus of these builds).
Fit two chaff dispensers and keep them running during a PvP conflict, it won’t help you with the rails, but you won’t get hit by missiles.
Ah Nanomam, haven’t been there for a while, send my regards to Hudson.
Yeah, I think I’ll start popping chaff by default now. Both attacks were very close range, and I never heard the missile warning nor did I see them..
I use missiles within 1k and they can’t stop them.
LOL same CMDR was with me all day, didnt go near me again.. I did smoke a couple of the rocket guys tho, yeah, knowing its their drawcard helps…
