    On the other enemies, such as Savage, Dom'Nepeshi house Dom'Razak house, also need to fight?

      The same principle applies to all enemies. Once you make moves of your own, you can use them in every type of fight, either that be PvP or PvE. Well, I don't think you need CDs against npcs :D , but the same principle of a dogfight (the moves basically) applies to every kind of fight.

    Like WOW; I have been playing Freelancer for... 14 years(?) and I've been doing something completely different. Mind you, I've never engaged in PvP, only PvN, but I've almost never used CD's, and never in combat. You're approach to dogfighting is completely different from what mine has been BUT your combat stategy makes a great deal of sense, especially from a defensive standpoint. I will have to investigate "seing the hole" and "the perfect angle" as I don't understand these concepts but the rest of it I shall practice starting today. The greatest revelation you've provided me though, is the tactical use of CD's. I will map a key for it as soon as I can and begin using it.

      glad to help :) . About angles, weapons turns in theirs hardpoints and in some cases you can hit your target even if 'you not see him'. Knowledge/experience with each ships can be quite different. Fast turning can be beaten with better placed hardpoints and pilot knowledge how to use it for his advantage.

      Ships have also different hitboxes and some ships is much harder hit from front as from sides. There is allot hidden if you like these things :)

    All of these are PvP specific. Out of all of them, the entire series could be summed up by just one or two videos. The only two videos that were interesting/helpful were the ones involving explaining Engine Kill and the one explaining how to utilize Rapid-Fire. The other ones aren't that helpful for newbies. I'd love to see some updated videos in 60 FPS showcasing a few Newbie Tips and Tricks.

      Hi, and yeah I know, this was just a long time ago and I wasn't really good at making videos, but it was the best I could do at that time. I also want to update them, but right now I am too busy in RL, so we shall see.

    Ha! Easy to say, hard to master. One enemy in front of me, and 2 behind and i am smashed in 30 seconds even when trying to dodge like you. Practice...practice... practice.

      Everything takes time, it took me years to get to the level I'm currently at. I've been through a lot and have learned from my mistakes and still have a lot to learn, it just never stops. So you can't dodge well? Learn from that mistake and move more often(thrusters/thrusters + EK combined especially), improvise, invent your own moves etc. It's not necessary to copy my every move, invent your owns for example. These videos are just to get you up to speed in case you have difficulties, the practice is all up to you, that's how you learn everything. So, yes...practice, practice, practice. :)
