How the hell do you deal with beacon spam as Eldar?

Postby Adrmial Seraph » 22 August 2016, 04:41

I've been running into this issue lately, vs every race they'll get close, spam beacon on your ships and then kite you with long range ordinance. Be it SM mass boarding torps, chaos lance fleets, Ork Zzaps, etc.

I'm at a loss how to deal with it, once it's attached...that's it. It feels like the only option is to either end task or capitulate.

Any ideas?

currently pathfinders can do perma crits , so stay out of 10k spot them and kill their decks?
at least thats what the guy i was fighting as an ork did and it killed me

Huh, that's a decent way of dealing with it. I was getting frustrated with how utterly broken it was when a long range fleet beacon'd you. Felt like there was only 2 options at that point: capitulate or warp out.

Gonna try this later on, thanks!

knowing the systems and focusing them down is really important
most detection skills are deck related, induction coils are engines, void overcharge and teleport is gennys
bombs and boarding is hull so nothing you can do about that
although if you see a ship with a broken hull its safe to go for a full boarding instead of being happy with a teleport... usually

I know most of this already, thanks though. I've been playing since beta. I refunded pre-purchase just before eldar were released because at that point, the game was pretty messy. Came back later though.
