Does anyone have any interest in organizing a night for flying a different meta? We could do this on TRE or Harb (or both). The idea would be to replace "OP" things like ion, hyperspace beacon stacking, TDM GS/bomberball, BLC, and slug railgun to open up other ship possibilities and setups.
Blackbolt/Novadive with EMP (no TT allowed)
Legion/Warcarrier with missile sentry drone (no railgun or interdiction drone allowed)
Dustmaker/Cometbreaker/Cartel with plasma/missiles (no slug allowed)
We could also simplify it a bit and just put Legion/Warcarrier and Blackbolt/Novadive on the banned list and have no restrictions on the Dustmaker. but I think the meta of EMP countering missile sentry drone + seeker mines is rather cool. And the Legion + Dustmaker combo would be neat because it would still be kinda tough to take down, but without slug it wouldn't be OP enough that it turns games into GS chess. Plasma is useful but you'd need to also use your heavy lasers to finish off targets. If we allowed T2 GS in its full capacity without bomber support it might ok but it's hard to say. That ship's main counters are ion railgun and BLC scouts.
What do you think?
