But that's a whole other story and we also talk about completely different price classes.
Concerning your last argument, that a FT in a CapMC can beat a HMC, I must disagree and correct it for you in that way:
A FT in a Cap MC can beat ANY unexperienced player in ANY class in ANY ship! But this counts not only for a FT in a Cap MC, but for every class in almsot any lvl 50 ship tbh.
Especially from all nat classes e.g. the privateer is the most dangerous vs a bucaneer. And of course a priv also can beat any other class.
Conclusion: Learn to play instead of spreading out half truths on the forums...
