Eleven charges?! I don't think that exists anymore.
This is why I think small ships are going to have a much harder time dealing with large ships. I think this is a good move by frontier. It's stupid that a viper can outpace an Anaconda with shield cells. IMO, the viper should die in five seconds.
I agree, it should take at least a 'Wing' of Vipers to take down an Anaconda. I tried taking down a 'Dangerous' NPC Anaconda last night and put up a good fight but overall couldn't do enough damage in between taking down it's shields and then my Shield Cells were spent and my shields couldn't hold off so I had to flee. Sometimes when I get 'help' from other NPC's I can take it down, but this was 1-on-1, but that's the point right, I have better success with others doing damage to it. Maybe a better pilot then myself could accomplish the goal, but I saw the writing on the wall for me, flee or get blown up.
I'm really starting to like my Viper, tough little fighter against most ships close to it's size.
