I recently joined RvB and I'm looking for some tips to get started. So far I've spent some time flying solo in a kestrel trying to find fights. I have managed to find a few fight so far, but they haven't been going my way. I'm not really surprised that I'm losing fights because I'm quite bad at pvp, but I am surprised that I'm losing them without seemingly being able to do anything to my opponent. Just a moment ago I was fighting a breacher with my kestrel, and despite having two ancillary shield boosters and resistance rigs on my ship I died incredibly quickly, while my opponent was easily able to rep his shields through my damage. Here's the fit I was using:
4* t2 rocket launchers (Inferno rage rockets)
2* medium ancillary shield booster
t2 warp scrambler
5mn cold-gas enduring microwarpdrive (I realize this should have been an afterburner)
t2 damage control
Now I realize that the mwd was a terrible choice for a brawl, and it's probably part of the reason why I died so quickly. Still, that doesn't change the fact that I was dealing negligible damage and I would never have been able to take him out in time. Are there any tips that you could give me based on this to help me improve my game? Thanks in advance!
PS. my character has quite decent skills to fly a kestrel.
