  1. DPS Wisdom & Tactics

    Thank you all, sincerely. And i actually wanted to kick it off by asking: and recognizing that There are a lot of variables to account for; asides from a TCRC, and a "full fleet arnons" (as i imagine webs will help the Snipers Tracking, as well as DPS') : -What is the concensus regaurding DPS skipping webs over T1(tag one) in favor of T2-T10 to prevent the higher tags from running away? -Or is it best to web All DPS tags T1-web limit, As the slower the sansha move the higher the applied damage which pops them faster. I figure there is a wealth of wisdom that somone has already tested it. Cause I am in favor at what pops targets/waves quicker. Thank you in advance for input.
  2. DPS Wisdom & Tactics

    Hello all; Good Luck and Fortune to'ya. I am hoping Vindi Vets and DPS Vets add some of their wisdom on top of this, and please take the liberty to correct anything as they see prudent. I fell in love with WTM culture of newbro friendly, ISK faucets of fun: I started this thread to remark on some of the things i picked up and allow info to be spread to newbro's (including me'self) As DPS, whether your in an Optimal Ship, or a Starter: remember the fleet counts on us: being efficient in removing dangerous DPS tags from the field, as We are the Sword of the fleet. Our DPS targets are chosen with Wisdom behind it. The faster we Pop the Sansha, the faster our fleet will be in a safer state. I hope to stay on topic by sticking to Maneuvering, Web calls, and general info ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Maneuvering ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The VVV Anchor should always be on your watchlist, easy right? But what happens when FC calls tag 1+2 outini/auga/deltole and you have no anchor in the pocket? BURN BABY BURN! (Turn on your MWD) You do not need to be attached by the hip especially at the beggining of a room (exeption TCRC) remember almost all FC's want Focus fire 1-X so you will generally be in the same place as the anchor anyhow. As a Blaster ship, you must close to the enemy Sansha to hit them effectively. So in every beggining of each room, You should be anchoring on your DPS Tags. Pay attention to how many DPS tags are left, as you Should be Keeping at Range on your Anchor when DPS tags are low, or when FC calls for DPS burn to anchor spots This applies in 1st rooms where the sancha are already on field, tags are up, and DPS is warping in: What I do 1st (example TPPH turn left go fast) i am spam 'E+Click' on tag 1 and as soon as i see warp meter ~40% i hit my MWD to start the burn. Then start locking your tags, i find im already hitting max speed just as the rest of the tags come in -Just remember the closing rate is fast! don't Bump nor overshoot your target (~20k out kill your MWD) and keep spamming that keep at range so you do not 'bump the targets' If your not still burnin' you can actually start to "keep at range"(E+click) to Tag 2, IF T2 is within 10k and IF Tag one(T1) is webbed.. this will help you apply more dps to T1 as you slowboat to T2(tag two) Get familliar with the Keep at range mechanic, as you get more experienced you'll notice how to apply more efficient DPS, and help the fleet and you make more ISK/hr as well as BE safer. - Eve University has a great thread on Transversals, angular velocity, and general gun dynamics, as a blaster you could benefit greatly from checking it out <https://wiki.eveuniversity.org/Turret_mechanics> ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Webs------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Precall webs Webs help the whole fleet, especially DPS squad; in the pre-spawned pockets, down to when your VVV brings you to the next spawn, you want as many DPS targets webbed down as possible. - don't call webs after you web them imho -i would suggest precalling webs, it allows your fellow DPS to not waste time switching web targets wasting precious cooldown seconds. Be aware and know what will be in web range, and what will not. If your gonna lose a web on something, call it. WTM culture will not mind if you were mistaken, if you call "6 got away" it may allow another dps to try and catch it. Foshkey wrote an excellent article (that includes pictures) regarding BS that need webs that are doing 100m/s or more. Dont forget if BS are webbed, go for them cruisers (Rommi's usually) as well, and help the HHH out. Remember when the FC calls for 'DPS burn your anchor spots' turn your MWD on and keep at range on your anchor (Be aware not to bump any objects (Tower, Rocks, etc), the fleet and your VVV needs Your blasters and webs ready and in range for the next wave.* again Spread those webs! Precall, and if there are no tags yet, STILL WEB. You can coordinate what you have webbed when the tag numbers appear. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Tips------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Vylaids DONT NEED WEBS (Fiona helped me know that) apparently they have no acceleration module. While your webbing, remember to keep focus fire on your DPS Tags 1-X Don't chase after tag 9's when the rest of the dps targets are killed. You should be K.A.R on your anchor when there are 2-3dps tags left. Remember Shoot in order. In a TPPH Final Room, Tag 9's Or Z's Ostingales are the Trigger for the next wave. It is important to not be shooting 9 or Z when 7-8 are still alive, or X Y If the final Osti's are killed before the rest, there is a good chance you and your Fellow DPS members will not be waiting in ambush for the Next Wave spawn. PRECALL Them Webs! Remembrer to shut your MWD when you are done using acceleration to close to targets. or when your done moving Tactical Overlay Helps me out in maneuvering around the field the Default hotkey is (Alt-D) You can also find a Press-button Bottom left of your Capacitor GUI Keep and mind: listen to your FC! If the FC calls full fleet Arnons + Outini, or DPS Auga Outini Deltole Start locking them! You Do Not need tags to lock Primary targets, When FC calls primaries you can lock the primaries and then lock the rest of your DPS tags when the numbers arive. Remember to keep focusing fire. Just be aware if you accidentally lock a sniper target to Unlock them. You want to help your DPS squad crush your targets before you hear Hoover telling the Snipers to "help the lazy dps out" we laugh as snipers are our friendly rivals. No worries about burning to final tags when there is another spawn to come, as it is much more important to be in position for the next wave Your 2 types of ammo will almost always be Long Range, or Short range. Try to pay attention to how far your targets will be, and Load the Appropriate ammo for the Task at hand. You can be firing Null(long Range) while they are outside of Optimal Range for Short Range, And to Void (short range) when close (Usually within 12k) Remember it takes 5 seconds to reload I have a blast flying with WTM (pun intended) these are just tips i gathered from learning, they are not manditory (exception: for DPS burn to your anchor spots, be with your VVV) I apologize in advance for any typos, as this was done from mobile device. Good luck n Fortune, I shall see you in Fleet! --VVR P.S Whether you are a Hyperion, rohk, or vindi -* if you have blasters*- and have any questions or would like to know more feel free to message me me in game mail, or give me a poke on TS "Victor Victor Rothwulf" - Me' door is open if im around. And I will find the time. "Make them sansha's go No-whear!"
