Tornado or Oracle? And why?

Haven't really flown either of them. What I am most happy about is that there is not a consensus about which one is better. That tells me that they are of comparable power levels, yet not so much the same that you can't compare them. I think that's the biggest and best impression. None of the T3 BC's seem to be overpowered compared to any other.

Tracking is crap against frigs, but that's true with faction ammo with ALL the large guns - even with tracking bonuses, the enemy frig has to pay no attention to transversal, and even then it will be hard to land good shots on it. Ofc lucky (or stupid, depends on the side you are on) volleys on straight - approach-MWDing frigs can be devastating, but most of the times you have more to win than lose using T2 long range ammo with all "Short-range" turrets and Tier 3 DCs - with the Tornado being the exception maybe, as with 2x TEs shoots pretty far with faction.


I don't think that I agree with you. I've been having really good luck with FN AM, a web, and some situation manipulation that forces their transversal to drop in a big way. Null just isn't able to hit them - though I admit that it might if I were gonna fit a FN web on my Talos.

Naga is the worst comparatively. @tleast when comparing close range turrets.

Solo = Talos (drones), Tornado.

Fleet = Tornado, Oracle.

Sniping = Tornado, Oracle, Naga.

These ships are most viable in fleets. The Tornado and Oracle are far superior when compared to the Naga and Talos.

Yeah, I've seen the Naga do well in fleet ops. The vid I saw, the Naga had 2x tracking computers in the mids and switched them out depending on what he was shooting/how far he was shooting. Worked out quite nice for him.

BTW, now running dual LSE oracle now. No cap drain from invuln field= longer cap useage/MWD time. Still has enough buffer to GTFO. I also consider that 60KM a sort of 'buffer' If there's no ceptors around, I can sit still at 60KM and lay down the PAIN on the primary. If anything starts approaching me, I have almost 40KM to recognize it and then burn away before I'm even in long point range.

Range buffer FTW.
