Maybe thats because the guns they are using aren't really designed for being a cruiser's
main armament. I don't know everything about the game for sure, but I do know that its a
bunch of B.S. that people make their ships do crazy things (like the HH mess that led to
the start of this video) that were probably never intended in the first place.
If you have a ship that can't defend itself, then you need to re-consider and come up with
a different setup. AA should be nerfed if the team loses. Otherwise, whats the penalty???
It makes no difference if they win or lose. In fact, its about as bad, if not worse, then
the shared xp system. It encourages selfish behavior. If you really for one second believe
that there are no people in the game that AA and don't care about anything else around
them you need to do a reality check.
