Post i like big decks and i will not lie
Anyone else notice a , pardon the pun, large # of ships will a silly # of decks?

I have what i consider a fair ship for rank, but when 25% of the people i hit now take 3000-6000 damage per hit..im baffled

My span of targets now seems to be very tough ssb's and veterans ..or....super large ships ....

Just curious what experience others have..im rank 1932 for referense on bt target range

I'm under Rank 1000 and have 4800 decks. Proud of it. 8-)

Good for you, you have a great opportunity to fit in perfectly with the ships Kool is describing, if you can just manage to double, triple or quadruple that number by the time you reach his BT range :)

There are truly some ludicrously large ships, who cannot possibly need or use all their decks, there just aren't that many modules.
When you hit for 9000+ damage on someone (shocking but true), it is reasonable to wonder if they are perhaps intergalactic property developers transporting a large number of 18-hole golf courses, with extensive residential options, commercial districts, world-class casinos and entertainment precincts.

Admittedly seems like a weird way to do it, but no stranger really than 18000+ decks :P

I hate to disagree, but there are modules still sitting in my cargo waiting to be installed when for when I add more decks...
There are too many modules on the game and I wonder why they are there if they become irrelevant once you start spam hiring tactical officers?
We should have an attack per rank ratio, not by decks. It's a flawed PvP system...

I could have the strongest ship in the game if all I did was hire tacs and kept my ship at 20 decks. AND slow ranked. lol

Please, if you are going to quote then quote enough to keep the context.
If you can list 18,000 decks worth of modules then I will be *very* surprised, my jaw will drop in stunned silence and I will immediately and profusely apologize.
I am pretty confident that this will most likely not be happening.
Otherwise, you are agreeing with what I said, not disagreeing.

Now given you are "proud" to have 4800 decks before Rank 1000, in the spirit of truthiness I have to say that I don't believe you have a lot of basis to complain about the way the damage cap works.
You know (or should know) how it works and choose to ignore it.
That is fully cool, but deliberately and proudly building a big ship then complaining about a "flawed PVP system" is just a tiny bit hypocritical.
"Everyone told me having a big ship could be a mistake for PVP but I ignored them and I am proud of my decision to have a big ship but PVP is broken because my big ship..." sheesh

As for "strongest ship in the game" by going SSB and slow-ranking... nope, nope, nope. That is exactly the opposite of my experience.
I am not the strongest ship in the game by a long way, but I think I have a pretty reasonable bucket of bolts and the number of slow ranking SSBs that I would consider "strong" is very limited indeed.
SSBs like Senator rock because they rank with purpose and understand the importance of AP and cost-benefit, but they are the exceptions, not the rule.

Don't even know what to say really. I respect your playstyle but 4800 in rank range just Wow.

What i dont understand about LSB's complaining about SSB's. Is At under rank 1k the Mod's we have suck... most give horrible stuff:deck. And instead of figuring that out you just added deck after deck and put the useless mod on. And end up in most cases with a junk of a ship, and then complain when ppl who put the effort and time to figure out whats best/ if the mods worth the deck ; not being a deck whore ; and instead saving the deck ,End up with a better ship or are harder to disable/better pvpers.

I personally chose the crappy SSB life, after getting a bunch of useless mission and npc mods and realizing you know what these Mod's just arent worth the deck. Once the Mod's are junk i might add some more deck.

at 4800 deck at my range ... you're ship must be really good or junk .. thats how LSB work in my rank, there is no inbetween. I could write a lot more but another talk on LSB and SSB... I'll save my time and everyone elses here. Look at some past posts, which are endless.

So no slam on anyone, but question was more what do you see, not a negative hit on ssb, cap , etc. Just bt experience and what your real life experience there is.

I know its all relative to your range, your attack, and other factors. Just seems like i have seen , what seemed a shocking #, of ships with many decks. Sure some are very good, but,to see sooo many seemed wild to me. Myabe its just perception, could believe that.

I also kind of ask because typically, not always, having what obviously amounts to 8k+ decks puts the captain of that ship in dangerous waters damage wise. Since the cap formula changed so long ago and with so many legions and top players advising new players against it, i would have thought the # of people falling into that category would be 1-2%. I'm defintely not big ship on the block attack wise, so for me to do this much to this many baffles me.

If you were at rank 1000 and had a 20 deck ship, I'm sorry but you would only be holding yourself back.

teehee, not surprising that this particular vessel should appear in this discussion.
Am sure quite a few people will know who it is despite the kind anonymity.
