    Just played a game probably my first of many event manipulators. My infamy 200+ cheater infamy 2800+. My boat mk2 shooter with tier 2 rare cannon, tier 1 rare carronade, tier 1 uncommon flare. Cheater boat mk1 defender with tier 1 epic big shield, tier 2 epic shield with 2 rare hit points perks, tier 1 epic cannon, tier 4 rare cannon.

    I have to admit, I'm surprised that they're not matching ship type for ship type. The entire game revolves around team play - when it's one on one, the dynamic is completely different. I run with a shooter and only a shooter (since I'm not going to pour more money than what I already have into getting another ship and set of ship-sepcific gear up to the infamy level I'm at), so if I'm up against a halfway decent speeder 1-on-1, well...curtains. lol. It's hard to do damage when your'e up against someone who can stun you, then run up behind you and kill you before turret gets anywhere near them.

    Oh... I never knew about this "cheat". Tried it now, didn't help =)))
    But anyway, I wonder where are all those 3200-3900 infamy mk6 ships? All I meet now - over 4000/ over 5000 infamy mk7s.
    That's not even fun...

    Well... I definitely don't want to play this event anymore. Will stick to normal battles for now

    Maye your gear is better than your normal infamy suggests. I, for instance, often get matched against teams full of high level legendaries and maxed epics while I'm packing all rares except an epic flare gun and turbo.

    I've spanked a couple of NM players in mk6s, but I swear it's been like shooting bots at times!

    Okay I tried my best but I just have to admit this event isn't for me. I tried my normal mk6 shooter gear (10,5k gear score) but faced mk7s with 12k gear score most of the time. I might be able to compete with them in normal 5vs5 when I have my team with me but in 1vs1 it's just brutal o_O

    My poor shooter got 9k hp but those mk7 monsters got anything between 11k (shooters) and 20k (defenders). And needless to say, a yellow enemy almost always means a loss :p but I'm not blaming matchmaking here - basically the matches weren't unfair in terms of overall power. Those people just got better 1vs1 weapons (flare, exc and bc) while my own weaponry (snipers, rg and torps) is better used at longer range team play. So it looks like I just have to wait for another team based events :cool:

    I seriously believe that these 1v1 duels should give more coins for a win, it makes sense to use stars/coins in other matches since you can’t win if your team suck, but for 1v1 it’s different, a win should be give significantly more coins

    I'm happy because shooters and defenders had the upper hand up until this event. Now yellow boats, whose forté is duelling, are being represented.

    Maybe we'll have a fixer centric event too? Ofc triptape fixers have a clear edge in this event, but still.

    That's because the event favors players with higher gear score (and thus infamy). I'm using my main Shooter with the best loadout I can put together. Here's the stats on my first 10 games (all I've played so far), and you can clearly see why you are winning:

    My infamy is high, not the gear score (comparing to majority p2p nightmare)

    Looks like it is easier to balance 5v5 than 1v1. The waiting time for a battle is soooooo long.
