Is it still possible to use a SLF in a CZ

Postby Spike1986 » Tue Oct 03, 2017 12:01 pm

With the new rules for conflict zones in Möbius, how do commanders manage their ship launched fighters? My fighter will engage any opposition ship regardless of whether it is hollow or solid. Does anyone have any hints or tips to prevent PVP with SLFs in conflict zones?

Keep your SLF in "hold formation\fire" at all times.
Specifically designate targets.

This also has the benefit of the SLF not running 20km off and pull aggro on a blob of 15 hostiles and bringing them back on you.
Unless it bugs out and goes "fire at will" regardless of orders, and it does that A LOT !, you should be fine, and your SLF should last much longer.

Although I would simply recommend dropping group if you do, if you don't feel like winging you might as well be solo.

Rule 1: Pillage. Then burn.
Rule 2: No such thing as overkill, as long as there are reloads.

This had never even occured to me! Thanks for pointing out the risk.

I use "hold formation" or "attack my target" for the SLF in CZ's. Otherwise they tend to die quickly.
