I’ve run over a thousand incursion sites now, in three different ships.  At this point, you’d think I’d know everything there is to know, but I’m still picking up various “pro-tips” from the vets.  Of course, I have all the basics down (i.e. anchor points, memorizing target order, and everything from Guides section of the forum), what I’m looking for is things like this: (1) Splitting Guns (either to minimize wasted DPS with Machs on low health targets or to help quickly switch to subsequent targets when DDD’ing), (2) Pulling initial room agro into DPS in TPPH’s & NRF’s, (3) Sniping the far Niarja in a TCRC, (4) Burning left 2 prop mod cycles in pre-loaded TCRC’s, and (5) In TCRC’s, Webbing Mara’s to help snipers, and then the untagged Schmaels while on the tower to help DDD.   Oh, and I’m also rather new to logi, so any pro-tips involved with that would most certainly be appreciated.  And no, Thrawn, I don’t want to know how to be a better sandbagger :)

Maybe this has been posted elsewhere, but one nice thing to do for the AAA before sending them into a TCRC is to remote cap in case there is a preload greeting party on the other side of the gate. I have benefitted from this more than once.

The only thing I think I can tell you is about DDD. I split my guns into 7/1 stacks. Typically I'm killing two frigates at a time when I am DDD. I have the one that I am firing 7 guns at, and the one I am firing 1 gun at. With a little experience you can work it to where the drones assisted to you go to one frigate that only 1 gun is firing at while you kill a different frigate with your 7 group guns.

Apply 1 web and the 1 gun group, this puts drones on target. Find another close frigate, apply web, pause 1thousand one 1thousand two, activate 7group guns. Repeat as needed. You need good tracking to do this, and typically if you are moving beyond about 250-300m/s you wont hit anything unless your transversal is low.  There's a reason DDD has 2 webs TE's and split guns.

TPPH: Being anchored for each wave is a must, it helps a ton.

1st room burn forward 10km one prop mod cycle while madly spamming target lock and hit stop. You should be sitting within 15km of all the frigates and motionless by the time they get there.

2nd room sit still with the snipers and spam target lock, they are coming to a sniper or basi, don't bother moving until they swap targets. Don't be afraid to take shots at frigates 20 or so km out. Even if you are moving the traversal should be low enough.

3rd room burn forward 10km one prop mod cycle and stop. Again you should be right where they end up, and again motionless. Also you can typically pop a frigate with  your 7 group guns while waiting on targeting delay for the next wave if you already have the frigates locked and in range. Don't spread webs on new waves. Web what you are wanting to kill (ex wave 3 Otuni 2) and DONT activate the second one until you want drones to move off your current target.

NRF: Being anchored for each wave is a must, it helps a ton.

Again burn directly forward 10km and stop. From there its the same as TPPH. 4th wave the 2 or 3 otuni is your target. 

TCRC: This is where it gets fun

Re group your guns and load null.

While in warp reload to AM/Void if preload, kill near Niarja, links should be on you now and you can kill far niarja. Pop schmeels <20km from you. Once you start burning swap to null and kill schmeels >20km out while looking for niarja respawns, prioritize those. Once you are in your spot and schmeels are dead swap back to void, target the tower and shoot it, decycle guns when Niarja's spawn. Target Niarja, use both webs 1 thousand one 1thousand 2, shoot. Should 1 shot. 2575.

Thanks for the full write up Ixex.  I've always used anti-matter and chased my targets (well, except for TCRC, where I also post up), and just heard Ty Coe mention that he posts up and uses null the other day.  I'll definitely have to give your method a shot the next time I DDD, and see how it compares.

as long as you have good tracking skills and (tracking enhancers are good for DDD) null won't be a problem. As stated before don;t chase the frigs. just be close to where they're orbitting and you want to make sure you are anchored at the next spawn for every wave. Void can be used for niarjas in TCRCs when you're anchored and you will just insta blap them
