sniping ????? in a space game FOR GODs sake WHY?
i dont get it,.. a space ♥♥♥♥ sitting on 1 spot (spawn) for wwhole game, protected by fighters who respawn,.... I DONT get this idea.. ruined the game for me... figters interceptors, tanky frigates all makes sense and is fun BUT THOSE SITTINGS DUCKS killing with no effort makes me puzzled and dissapointed... and to all those " you can just take team and destroy them easy" LOL YEA WITH at least 3 ships you might destroy 1 sniper if there are not spawned fighters.. :D:D

i myself play support frigate, and theres simply no way i can fight those snipers, usually 3 of them sniping me from far away, i got no speed to avoid it...

Look you need somewhere to farm kills and campers are locked in tunnel vision easy kills. Don't discourage camping I need the points lol

Yep, I was actually enjoying this game in the beginning but the sniping is getting out of control. At least a third of the team is sniping and on one hand it makes any attempt at a decent dogfight with a proper player next to impossible due to their constant interference and on the other hand they're worthless as defenders/attackers when they're on your team because they only focus on getting kills.

Another game ruined by snipers .... *sigh*

Sniping isnt exactly a problem for me, as i always play a covert ops ship such as the dagger, it's fairly easy to ambush the snipers and kill them :D

The Rabid Collector is correct the counter to snipers is a fast ship with some proxy mines or minefield=dead snipers good times good times

Snipers are easy to avoid. Hide behind an asteriod/obstacle. And use TEAMWORK to gang up on them with fast ships. Once you get a frig into range they're generally screwed because they aren't getting away.

Also, If you are getting sniped at a spawn point it's because your team is lousy. Join a corp, get on comms, and coordinate. Stop whining.

Snipers? I like them! More enemy snipers > less ships in dogfight and support > less initiative> easy to #put your mission objective here#.

another ignorant,.... i didnt say im getting killed on spawn, my problem is THEY DO SIT ON SPAWN, and once i try to go for them, i get killed by fighters who SPAWN.. and since sniper sitting at spawn GUESS what happens.. really i feel like talking to the wall... yeah yeah you can kill 1 snbiper with good team work, see the problem here? well ...

when i go for snipers, they are normally alone, easily give them some debuffs, missiles up their ♥♥♥ and done, a easy kill

Snipers are easy to take down, also the sniping cannon has a recharge time, so...... stop whining?

Tier 1 is a mess with snipers, but in T2 the snipers aren't a problem. And people, keep in mind it's a BETA. So tired of people complaining about a game in the trial period. They are still developing and adjusting the game, give it time.

The sniping and camping is pretty annoying.. Even in the sci-fi world of movies & tv shows when you see long range fighting its.. not sniping. Its barrages. I just get sick of getting them on -my- team. Useless as can be and all the Jerichos have a lovely habit of getting you killed/team killing. Simple fix would be a much larger CD on the specials for frigs or make them more appropriate/push ppl to go to the front lines more somehow.

+1 ...
ppl who say they have no problems with them are not playing support frigates, but mostly interceptors... seriously love this attitude, "i haz no problemz with something so its fine"
look at bigger picture for once, blind ppl.
