Wellp, still not having lots of luck finding GalMil fleets. The one major fleet I did find ended up -1 Guardian. I have since been building back up. Lots of plexes. And yep, my Slasher now has a cloak. Pirates are otherwise just too annoying.
I have to give the current plex design a D-. Maybe a E+. Hard to say. They need to have LP per pilot bell-curve like it does in incursions to encourage small gangs to plex together instead of splitting the FW population between plexers and combat pilots. So that right there is VERY BAD DESIGN. But very CCP so *shrug*. What I've come to expect from their design team.
Back to plexing and dodging pirates to make back what I lost with the Guardian.
Also: Post #700. I do believe I sound like a proper bitter vet now :P.
