I'm experimenting with a kiting Condor with tracking disruptors, and it works rather well against many frigates and even destroyers when I can avoid making stupid mistakes. Any turret ship with just afterburners has no chance of course, but some of the faster combat frigates with MWD can give me considerable trouble.
In a recent fight a Rifter managed to catch me and kill me. The Rifter is a bit slower than the Condor, but not much. So with some overheating it has a pretty good chance of performing a slingshot maneuver and catching me while I try to kite it.
What can I do to prevent that? How do I tell that my opponent is trying to slingshot and how can I maneuver to avoid being caught and scrammed?
