USS Defiant major IP overhaul
 
Oh thank god its about dam time the Defiant is seeing some more love, "proper rapid fire Cannons like in DS9 show" that will get some people crying some more about nerfing the Defiant some more. Lets remember people like it was said in DS9 show, "It's a Warship". This ship is ment to be the "most powerful in firepower ship", its not a tanking cruiser or a sneaky science ship with lots of tricks. This fix that Cryptic says they are going to do will for sure get me wanting to play my Escort ship again. If no one likes this, maybe you should learn to play your cruisers ans science ships better.

Q: alexisnomad Are there plans for dual torpedo launchers, like the ones the Defiant has in DS9?

A: While I donít know if the dual torps are coming yet, I can say that the Defiant is getting a major IP overhaul for the next feature episode series and that includes the proper rapid fire cannons you remember from the show.

I hope this also means a fix the interior. I know it may not matter to some people, but it does to me. At least as far as the defiant is concerned. (Fav ship.)

Well, I hope this is good news. FYI, I've noticed my crew getting a lot more hurt since this week's update. I hope this wasn't a stealth nerf to appease the defiant haters.

You know, the players whom have never played with the defiant and don't understand it's weakness'.:confused:

I was happy reading through the Ask cryptic, but when I saw this I was bouncing up and down in my chair from joy.

I just cannot wait :)

I wonder if they will be a console that gives us the ability to fire quad cannons for crazy major damage (like spinal lance) every so often? 'cos in DS9 if the Defiant did anything with the cannons, after those pulses were fired whatever was on the other end was space debris.

I also hope DS9 gets an Earth Space dock 2.0 style overhaul alongside.

I love my Compliant! I'm curious to see exactly what it is that they are doing. I hope they don't do anything to screw with the balance though. Is this quad cannon bit just a cosmetic change? Is Cloak going to get the console treatment for this boat?

The Defiant is already a hell of a ship!

Ok, that looks really freakin' sweet:eek:! But it is just cosmetic, right?
