Ramming speed! :(
« on: April 23, 2015, 12:06:53 AM »
So i decided to play some SC against real people instead of dealing with the predictable patterns during the Vanduul Swarm.

I logged in, chose the Cutlass Black, and began a match.

It was me and 5 Hornets.

Basically everyone employed a tactic of ramming me full speed.. Repeatedly. Are the Hornet's shields way overpowered? I was able to pick a few off with full guns a-blazin` (all 5) since they'd come at me in a straight line but it was hard to keep up.

Has anyone else seen this happen?

I noticed that too.  I was going 1v1 with a Gladius and got rammed almost every pass.  At this point in not sure if it's intentional.  They could be really bad pilots and get fixated on shooting and not moving.  Who know?  And remember,the small ship fighting is only a small part of the game.  Trying to ram a larger ship is not going to work out too well.  I'd like to see them try ramming the FITES Javelin.

The ramming issue is one I have seen people talking a lot about. There have been people talking about it, but nothing from CIG as far as I know.

Eventually something cool will go in here. It's a matter of time.
