In short.. i found it harder and even less lucrative than before (even if money is not why you go to a CZ..).
Those elite wings are a pain in the butt, and io guess you need some rank before your weapons do anything. I blew up a few on dumb ships like Asps, but ended up dancing with a python for 30 minutes, using all my ammo, all my SCBs and having to bail out with him at 8% hull.
I guess i'll try them in 2 or 3 years when i'll have moved up one combat rank, at the current rate lol (yay for 1% rank increase in one hour..)
CZ have gotten a lot tougher since 3.3. A low CZ is pretty chill for a player running solo, but a medium can be VERY challenging solo and is a bit scrappy even for a wing of two commanders in engineered ships. Don't get me started on the challenges of a high CZ.
I used to do hogh CZ in solo and pretty much last as long as i had ammo without losing shields a single time.
Now i'll have to watch the fuck out and rethink my build (hull reinforcements are pretty much useless.. will replace with guardian shield reinf and add maybe a SCB).
Not complaining tho. i am only combat master, and it was maybe too easy before. I imagine Elite players would get bored in a CZ.
Even if i did lose my Krait in my last fight against one of those elite pythons, it was pretty intense, and quite a come back to combat after months of barely deploying hardpoints. As long as it's not cheap deaths, i am fine with it
