Missile snipers costing matches?
Is anyone else noticing a large amount of players using the Jericho frigates and staying back during domination matches? They never move up to hold or cap a point and end up losing the match for the team. Then they complain when the 3 guys in fighters/intys don't hold the points. Also Team Captains boosting towards the enemy....

I boosted once as a captain and all my teammates went mad lol! About those frigates I think theya are just full fill their roles coz heavy damage frigtas have really low movement speed, all they can do is snipe enemies by thorwing missles.

I dont have a problem with snipers, its just when 75% of your team is sniping and not enough people are on the point.

You see a lot of this in T1 and T2 and then in T3 you get one guy that does this. People are slowly realizing that frigs are important up in the front lines.

I've had many matches where at least half the team is frigates sniping at spawn.. (At least snipe at a beacon or by the captain to protect them). Always lose matches when that happens. Not to mention many Jerichos throwing missiles near allys and getting them killed.

As an empire frigate player, my favorite past time is ramming into friendly frigates trying to snipe, since I'm much more likely to have more hull, the friendly frigate dies first.

If I'm feeling lazy I'll just warpgate ram them :D

yeah but most snipers are empire frigates because of the disintergrator cannon,

you're completely missing what I'm saying.

dumbed down version:
1. See team mate just sniping,
2. Rub hulls with said team mate,
3. team mate explodes and dies.

well this is kind of even more counterproductive, sniper > no sniper
