  1. Brok's Tried & Tested Potato. Dominix T1 fit.

    If it is about things like Genos & High Skills then what would be the guidance?
  2. Brok's Tried & Tested Potato. Dominix T1 fit.

    Maximising Deeps is good for Fleet. Maybe have a basic & advanced fit Domi in the future? That could work Updated: Just spotted that you have one now. Yup, I was just squeezing a bit more out with what skills I had
  3. Brok's Tried & Tested Potato. Dominix T1 fit.

    I did say that. "It's the WTM website one, but fine-tuned after being flown on grid by myself." If people have good skills they can do what I did. It has a better application than your one. Deeps is deeps.
  4. After a chat with a newb yesterday I'll leave this one here. It's the WTM website one, but fine-tuned after being flown on grid by myself. The fit is this. WTM lets it on grid. [Dominix, WTM Spud-gun Plus] Damage Control II Magnetic Field Stabilizer II Magnetic Field Stabilizer II Magnetic Field Stabilizer II Drone Damage Amplifier II Drone Damage Amplifier II Drone Damage Amplifier II 500MN Y-T8 Compact Microwarpdrive Pithum C-Type EM Ward Amplifier Adaptive Invulnerability Field II Adaptive Invulnerability Field II Large Shield Extender II Neutron Blaster Cannon II Neutron Blaster Cannon II Neutron Blaster Cannon II Neutron Blaster Cannon II Neutron Blaster Cannon II Neutron Blaster Cannon II Large Anti-Thermal Screen Reinforcer I Large Core Defense Field Extender I Large Core Defense Field Extender I Wasp II x5 Ogre II x5 Berserker II x5 Null L x6896 Void L x8600 Synth Mindflood Booster x3 Agency 'Overclocker' SB5 Dose II x3 2 things to note, & you can't dodge this: The drugs. You run out of Cap too easy without them. They have to be used. The drones: Ogres for teh tower, Wasps for the Romis, & Berserkers for the Frigates that DPS has to sometimes shoot. As a drone boat your drones missing is not an option really. Ogres may punch the hardest, but they are also the slowest & have the weakest tracking. It's all about Tools in the Toolbox if you're in a drone boat. . I can get just over 1300 dps out of this, which is better than the Hyperion or Rokh. Blasters plus Drones is a good entry ship for training up for Vindi too. . The Newb yesterday only had a Potato, & was low on ISK. They had trained up drone skills, but not gun skills. Hence the chat. Have fun
  5. The 1200mm Artie. Is it of use to us?

    This is where it gets interesting: I'm not an FC, I'm a Pilot & Regular Flyer. I also take a heavy focus on boat-building, eye-balling application ( a PvP thing ) a lot. I hate missing the target. I usually see a fleet with a lot of Hyperions etc in it, as we train up Newbies. Plus a few Rokhs, & the odd potato. A certain rival fleet ( whose name shall not be named, for they are smelly ) will just shove you into an expensive hull instead, whilst only letting the best pilots on grid due to 'heavy contesting' apparently being an issue ( they could just stay away, but they never seem to... ). So when you compare Fleet Comps... We are less Opti. A lot. And we do have to move focus to get away from this rival slightly-whiffy fleet. Dodging. We did so over the weekend for example. It was Einstein who pointed out how repetition doesn't solve problems. So my view is that we either stamp on the newbs or change our strategies to more of a 'hit & run' thing. I would rather we change our strategies. I like newbs. And yes, you are right, I never seem to end up in the contest-winning Fleets. C'est la vie. . As for Combat Logs this is where 2 tools come into play: Pyfa: https://github.com/pyfa-org/Pyfa/releases ( where I got the graphs from ) Combat Log analyser: http://evelog.mikk36.eu ( You upload the big files in game logs folder ) Manually counting the number of 'glances off' & 'grazes', compared to 'smashes' & 'penetrates', can also work ok. A test flight would see a bunch of Machs do 12 hrs of 1400 action, and then do 12 hrs of 1200 skirmish 'closing in on the target' action. Then you can check it over. . I also noted yesterday our FC's were checking the Machs over to see what the Pilots were doing. A good idea. . I'm sure we'll get it fixed in the end. Machs have their uses; but too many people just do 'big gun' stuff, instead of heading into the finer detail. That's my view anyway.
  6. The 1200mm Artie. Is it of use to us?

    Subnote: Actual Flight Test. In the trashcan fleet yesterday my trashcan ( Typhoon Fleet Issue ) had some 1200's. & I flew in DPS, so was moving at 1400m/s A LOT. The 1200's simply did not miss. Lots of reliable hits & smashes. The damage boost is getting into Quake range sooner compared to your rival. Skirmishing, instead of Static Sniper. That's all the data I have. I would like to see more Flight Tests I have to say
  7. Phoon-tang. The Typhoon Fleet Issue.

    Yeah, it was a Trashcan Fleet; so I brought my beloved Trashcan
  8. The 1200mm Artie. Is it of use to us?

    This is a VG strategy that actually worked against TVP. With TVP you either engage or you dodge. We used 800mm machs in a 4 damage 5 tracking set-up, & then dodged sideways into the NCO's. TVP could not follow, & we made some good iskies in peace. I think we need to think this way at HQ level. We know that the Nightmares & Vindis work, but our Machs are... a little weak. Now factor in our Newbros & sub-opti Hulls, & I think dodging will be a winner for us. So we boss the rat-popping stuff; the NRF's & TPPH's. PvP-like application, instead of Paper DPS. That's my suggestion

    This is a skirmish Mach fit. 5 damage 4 tracking.

It would close in on it's target a bit ( say 15km, using 1 MWD pulse ) & then open fire. It can then hold that fire until teh target goes down. It makes up for paper dps loss by having better tracking & more mods/rigs. 1200's use less power. You won't win in a TCRC, but we are losing in TCRC's anyway. We don't do Opti as heavily as our rivals. So... If you are closer to your target & have better tracking you apply more compared to a static sniper. So we become bosses at popping rats instead. That way we are stronger in TPPH's & NRF's. Well, that's teh idea anyway. Our Machs move a little bit, just to get a better shot in. And discuss
  10. NO DOCTRINE HAS BEEN CHANGED YET> THIS IS JUST THEORY-CRAFTING. I've just done this presentation here showing how a bit less Alpha & a bit more tracking can help our Machs: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1QRIb08YwhZsCrAMc53DqnSxNMDaZGQb3Gi4eti6oIbo/edit?usp=sharing As we are a non-contest fleet for us it's more about killing rats quickly, instead of killing towers quickly. We make our ISK by dodging & occasionally losing contests. So if we clear our other sites quickly the lost contest is not a problem. Machs with 1400's start to miss as soon as you start to move, & we move a lot. I personally thing a 1200 Mach that closes on it's target could really help us out. 1400's only shine when teh target is near-stationary. As soon as the target ( or you ) start to move it starts to go wrong.. If a certain rival Fleet drive us into teh TPPH's then us clearing that TPPH quickly will help us make up for lost time/ISK elsewhere. In TPPH's we move a lot more than in a TCRC. The Skirmish Mach will move a bit closer to it's target, & uses 1200's. The current snipey uses 1400's & keeps movement to a minimum. No power rig or mod means more slots for tracking & damage. This graph alone will show you how closing in and having better tracking will help you apply your damage as a Mach Pilot. Blue is the 1400, & yellow is the 1200. On a cruiser shot like an Auga.
  11. Phoon-tang. The Typhoon Fleet Issue.

    Weaker on the tower, but better against a moving target.
  12. Typhoon Fleet Issue Torpedo/Heavy Drones

    Those Torps are mega-slow. T2 Cruise would work better.

In, out, no cap issues, fast, missiles, guns, and also a bunch of big & little drones to be used for pew-pew-pew stuff. Really fun to fly. Primaried by the whole fleet twice & she took it. Just sharing that love With Arty & Cruise Missiles at Spec 3, and Gallente Drones at Spec 4, she was hitting the tower for 9500 average. Almost Ghappy's Bargh
