Give The Tos Connie Her Blue Phasers
 
Hello everyone,
I'm starting this thread to ask Cryptic to change the TOS Connie. I want the TOS Connie to be able to keep her blue phaser colors when we put better phasers on her.The gamestop pre-order said a TOS Connie that fired blue phasers. The Pre-order did not say a Connie and blue phasers so If you are like me and want your Connie to Keep Her blue Phasers instead of them being orange like every other ship's phaser weapons please show your support in this thread.

As alway's Live Long and Prosper :)

I wouldn't mind it if they stayed blue no matter what phasers were in, but, considering how quickly you get out of the Connie, I'm not that worried about losing 20 points of additional damage by keeping them in.

There was an exploit where you could change your weapons by typing /powerhue 0 into the chat box but cryptic have taken that away because people couldn't tell what was being fired at them (I think didn't know how to do the command so they started whinging) The same people would complain about the connie if that happened. You won't have the ship long anyway.

You know the special blue phasers that come with the TOS Conie are actually more powerful than MKII phasers. Or were you trying to equip MK III phasers in your connie when you graduated to Lieutenant commander?

Hmm, for canon reasons I agree.

Put my vote down for blue connie phasers (or /powerhue 0 210)!

Hey I've considered trying to max a toon with just the connie for the challenge :)

The default blue phasers that come with TOS Connie are more than adequate to use up to say LCDR.

Please don't ask to have a squashed exploitable bug re-introduced to the game. :)

Find a supportive Fleet to play with then. You're going to need the protection. :)

It doesn't matter, that is one of the only bounes we got, unlike digital downloads with the cool joined trill, we just got a ship and a red matter cap, so yes keep our Blue phasers.

Canon be darned... I wish we were given [limited] customization of phaser colors. When I say limited, I mean limited within the realm of the show. Example, I'm flying around in the Connie refit. And I want red phasers.

People argue about pure canon, but neglect to realize that really, this game is its own universe -- and we're already given various limited-but-varied options to customize the looks of our ships and uniforms. Giving us a similar design option for weapons shouldn't be out of that realm.

And I don't buy the "I need to know what I'm being hit with in PvP". People got over that very quickly once power customization made its way onto City of Heroes, and Champions allows power customization right out of the gate.

... So my ultimate point, I guess, would allow you to keep your blue phasers, as it were....
