  1. I've talked about this with Conarion and Izumi and while it is not official yet most likely DCU+Single T2 Multi Hardener scimi fit will be reinstalled at some point.

    Soon™


  2. I used to say and still sometimes do it when i have time : "keep at range 5000 meters until you get familiar with sites and know better than that".
    As long as you are in range of logi optimal and sansha is ~at your best ammo optimal, you should be good tbh.


  3. To be honest i would just make fitting space by cutting highslots on the Leshak. Shield HP or nice damage mods are more important.


  4. I also agree with Kimi. Scimitars mostly dying because of lack of shield buffer.

    Problem is that its actually really hard to fix it without removing 1 link from the fit.

    Also let me reiterate again if a scimitar dies it is most of the times cuz of bad piloting (taking gate too soon, or overrepping and taking damage aggro).

  5. Hmm interesting. DCU just simply got better with the patch so i dont really see why. I guess i'll ask dr zumi about it if it is indeed the case.

    The fit i listed is way cheaper and slightly better than current optimal :smirk_cat:
    Its only problem that its really tight and needs good fitting skills.


  6. So my 2 cents is that you want to use a cheap and efficient scimi fit.

    Here is the fit i'd recommend for linepilots, that is acceptable but has very tight fitting requirements.

    Really cheap and has more resists everywhere than opti fit.

    Also i agree with Malcolm. Scimitars pretty much never should take serious agro when piloting correctly. Thats their most important "tank".

    I try to cycle the MWD once at this point for the acceleration boost it gives me but then manually set my speed to ~200m/s so i'm not speeding into the tower and bumping straight back off it (remember to reset your speed to full as soon as you start heading back to the MTAC Fu~~~~ ummm factory)

    not sure if that's too advanced for the guide but seems to do the trick nicely

    So even if you are bumping on the Control Tower - and that is worse case scenario - after pulsing your MWD once you are going to probably drop the first MTAC quicker than just slowboating. Bumping is bad, you should try to not do it, but pulsing the MWD for the first drop is good.
    Finding an advanced way to not bump and use MWD the same time is best. You can suit yourself and find what works for you.
    What i do is : i dont adjust my speed, but i simply stop my ship after 5 seconds of MWD. Basically smashing ctrl+space halfway of the cycle. Thats probably the quickest or at least one of the quickest way to deliver fast without a bump.

    The absolute fastest and pretty crazy, _not recommended_ way is to just use MWD intentionally bump but be fast enough to open and drop anyway.
    Its pretty fun , but requires a lot of experience, a good setup for ingame windows, a good internet, server not to be too laggy, and all the stars to be aligned.
    Prepare to be roasted if you try and fail even though this was not recommended.

    After first drop you can chill and slowboat.


  8. So the downside of putting your drones on the tower is if you do it too early (basically before first vindi shows up) then you are risking them to be a target of the MTAC response team, and there is a higher than normal chance that they will blow up.

  9. UPDATE: After Surgical Strike Patch Void is more powerful. If you are confident with your tracking (better be close to 20 at least) you can try to use Void more often to blap them frigates. At the moment (2020 May) I am usually bringing 8k Null, 5k Anti and the rest is Void to fill up cargohold to max. But you know... im pretty confident :smirkcat:

    I like quafe zero for both battleships and logi, more lock speed and faster velocity. Booster lasts 3x that of a normal booster.

    Just 2 times. And i personally would recommend Mindflood (same slot). For shield battleships definitely.
    But yeah if you are a super-capstable logi Quafe is actually a great drug.


  11. Yeah the only thing i would fix is Drop. Drop is only good for DDD.

    For the rest of the fleet Frentix is probably better and they are the same slot, so you cant use both at the same time.

    But the big deal is really the Pyro 2 and the Mindflood (in a shieldfleet its actually really good). If you already have an optimal fit, your implants and you secured your Omega status then those 2 drugs are basically the next upgrade.

    The guide should mention to train to Biology 5 as well, so the drugs last 1 whole hour.


  12. Just a few observations.

    Acolyte is the most promoted light drone.

    Imperial Navy Gamma is a pretty good ammo for tachmares to have.

    Look out for Fed Navy Anti. Whenever i checked last 1-2 months it was always cheaper than Caldari.

    WTM fleet ships should not use the following ammo types:
    -Barrage L
    -Hail L


  13. Gonna put this bad boy on the market for now.
