In the new Beta the other day I was in 'open' and spent some time defending CMDRs at the Thargoid site from some of the normal disruptive elements in my engineered Corvette. I was doing OK until an unshielded FGS engaged me and through clever use of heat sinks and some wonderful flying handed me my arse.
Thoughts I've had are:
- Don't forget to fit shield boosters (doh!)
Learn to not rely on gimballed weapons
Actually learn to fly with FA off
Try CQC (this one I tried but never got any match ups, got bored waiting)
Any other thoughts on how to improve combat flying? I'm still not interested in PvP in general, so I get the argument of 'why bother' but it bugs me that I could be better.
