Do interceptors ever get good at higher tier?
why does it take so long to kill something when your are the lowest health unit on the field? thinking of playing fighter, not sure. my aim is bad too really hard to lead your target when they are sparatically moving around.

well the as an interceptor your role is to support your team / lock down targets, its hard to take targets down by your own unless they are low or an interceptor.

At tier 3 Interceptors get stasis, an active module that stuns the target for 3-4 seconds, they also get spy drones which reveal targets for 2mins (strong against stealthers / empire snipers) as support mainly. you also get to lock your target from using active modules / firing.

You don't kill enemies per say, you help your team kill them by providing the best lockdown modules in game atm.

Also interceptors are the best bomb carriers(empire fighters overdrive contest this though), hit and run unit in game.

So yes they do get better, the game changes from tier to tier but from what I played in T4 all classes have their strengths and weaknesses .

I will put it in words that will make you understand why you will mostly only see interceptors in tier 3-4.

*Ehem

Infinite Afterburners.

Plus a plethora of mods that can make you harder to already kill or turn every ships into cripples.

So yah go fighter and click overdrive and see the wonders it will bring to an interceptor as it plays the trolololol song when you do.

I think interceptors are the best ships in the game. At least Empire ones are. Not only can you use the MWD to warp out of danger, but if you get a couple of guys together you can MWD right on top of snipers and destroy them before they even see you coming. They're fast, agile and can deal decent damage when fit properly.

Here's my experience.

Use Frigates if you want to defend and get a lot of easy kills.
Use Fighters if you want to hunt interceptors and still be fast enough to occasionally cap or drop a bomb.
Use Interceptors if you want to actually win the game and you assume your entire team will be of no help.

I personaly love interceptors for the emp bomb matches, just lots of energy for afterburners, great top speed and my advice on this is well basicly never fly in a straight line and have flares equiped, cause a lot of people will their missles to try shoot you down, but for the other match modes i just use a frigate justt for its high health/shields and they do good damage, sure they are slow as a snail but when you get t2 frigates get yourself a warp gate support module, it will save you a long 2-5 minutes to travel 5K meters (whatever the measurement is).
