Except the StarWing never fired bombs. The only bombs fired in those videos were from Sheriff's DX-9.

You used missiles against heavy freighters that were intended for fighters and back then they didn't do enough damage to make it worthwhile otherwise we'd have used them constantly against freighters. Missiles back then were kick ass because they were difficult to dodge, not because they did more damage, a point that is moot for a freighter anyways. If you'd have unloaded concussion missiles into a AA-9 like that now I'd tell you off for wasting ammunition but we've already established I was a noob back then and didn't know better anyways. Don't pretend you did either.

Secondly, in all of those raids the freighters were secondary targets to any NR fighters that showed up. I know because I set them up. The freighters were mostly a 'no hostiles showed up so there's a big thing to shoot at' deal.

I'd take that bet if the devs would revert the mod back to the state when we flew those missions. Because frankly a StarWing back then didn't have the missile (or bomb for that matter but you didn't use those anyway) capacity to even down an AA-9's shields and 3 Interceptors had a much higher laser DPS than a single StarWing, so they'd down the freighter first. And even though it would definitely take the cake now AA-9s and Star Galleons were removed from spawns so even that is invalidated now.

If we were packing to kill AA-9s specifically the Skipray would have by far been the best choice and frankly when we attacked shipping in Fresia we used a combination of them and Defenders because we knew the Skipray had the most firepower.

How about you stick to what you know and don't tell me I don't know anything about what I've been doing for the past year and a half?

?? I used Heavy Rockets in that video, fyi.
And the Ions of the Starwing STILL cut shields faster.

How about somebody tones down his hostility?

Daelin, you're the one that started it, so I'd cut it out next time around.

Now, can people go back to happily reminiscing about the past with rose tinted glasses instead of flinging shit in public? You've got an entire forum for that.

I remember being all like "oh em gee, the rebs only outnumber us 3 to 1, this is gonna be a boring night."

Also shooting down whuuuuuping so many times that he'd rage and quit.

Other than that things are a bit of a blur...
