Ok, let’s take this one thing at a time:
First of all, I don’t remember this being so bad in HW2. It’s like Hiig BC ‘hesitates’ for a long time before it actually decides to fire.

…you guys want to gimp the Vagyr Trinity Canon to have less range?
As is, the Vagyr BC is more easily disabled than the Hiig…if you disable the Vagyr BCs engine and Rocket launcher, it only has its point defense guns left (just stay away from the front of the ship). The Hiig BC still has its kinetic turrets + point defense guns, even if you disable its ion gun turrets.[/quote]
This is incorrect. It takes exactly two subsystems to disable Vaygr BC - engines and missile battery. It ALSO takes exactly two subsystems to disable Hiigaran BC - top turret and bottom turret.
This point is moot, because you’ll be jumping your BC forward, 99.999999999% of the time hitting forward inhibitor. Also, Vaygr player has plenty of time to maneuver his BC to face yours if you try to be tricky and spend resources jumping your BC to the side first. Inhibitor range is rather large.
Another point to consider here is that ramming your BC sideways into a mass of destroyers and frigates is not a smart idea. Vast majority of skilled fights will happen 'face-to-face".
[quote]Also, the Vagyr BC heavy rockets have a bad habit of detonating on itself when moving vertically.
Also, the Trinity Canon does less damage than the Ion Canon turrets on the BC.
Finally, the Vagyr Trinity Gun misses a lot of the time when used against NON-BC/HC targets. Ion canon turrets do NOT have this problem![/quote]
LOL, how does any of that help Hiig BC which can’t fire AT ALL on the Vaygr BC?
And it takes ONE hit to kill a frig with trinity cannon. It doesn’t matter if 2 of them miss.
You obviously did not watch the video.
I’m going to try and avoid your completely baseless personal attack here, to keep this thread on topic.
My point is that I will ALWAYS play Vaygr on medium and large maps where BC battles are surely to happen eventually. And so will every other skilled player out there.
