They aren’t really the same ships.
Angel battleships come in the form of Machariels…but they have Launcher slots.
Cruisers with six hardpoints.
Armageddons with full racks of lasers.
No drone bays.
Weird resist profiles.
Npc’s have HP that is lower than an empty no-sp hull. Their dps is lower than no skill ships.
It’s not just their lack of skill. They are just not the same ships. And certainly not the same equipment.
Probably cause their ships aren’t made from the same materials.
Given how bad they are at it, throwing millions of ships to their death every day, i doubt it.
Not any more.
