T5 Excelsior Loses a Console Slot!
 
The Tier-5 Excelsior had its Transwarp Ability turned into a universal Console, yes? And yet... it receives no Console Slot. So... in effect, it loses a Console slot.

EVERY OTHER SHIP that had its Special Power turned into a Console received an extra Console Slot. Even some that DIDN'T have their special power turned into a Console got an extra slot.

What the hell!? Does Cryptic hate the Excelsior?

Topic.

Reason?

Discuss.

Now that it is pointed out... yeah.. wtf? Why do I loose a full console slot now in comparison to the other T5 ships? Not cool cryptic, not cool.

it's called balancing. i don't see any reason to give the excelsior more console slots than any other t5 ship. it already has the same console layout as the sovereign.

It had an extra slot before all this mess with making special powers into consoles, and as far as I could tell, it wasn't unbalanced. So how is this not NERFING the Excelsior?

That's not what I'm getting at. I'm saying that the Excelsior now has to waste a slot on its special ability, denying the Captains who fly it the use of that slot for something more useful.

While... every other ship basically has no change. It got nerfed. And I can't see why, in any terms, it would need to be nerfed. It wasn't broken, why mess with it?

The issue is that all the other ships are gaining console slots to accommodate for their new consoles.

The Excelsior, who has the least combat useful console, didn't gain any new slots. Hell, even the galaxy dreadnought gained a new slot.

yeah, because the transwarp stuff is that important. how often do you use that? once a week? less? i think i used it - well, i NEVER used it on my excelsior.

btw., don't forget that they buffed the console. now you get some extra power across all systems if you use it. put it in a sci console slot and everything is fine. since it also boosts aux you shouldn't lose much compared to a sci console and still have more energy in weapons/engines/shields.

edit: you don't have to use it. it's not that the transwarp stuff was an i-win button ....

yeah, because the dreadnought had one console slot LESS than the excelsior .. now they have the same amount ..

the excelsior should've come with one console slot less when it hit holodeck first. than everybody would be happy now .. but since it just had a sucky non-combat power cryptic said: "well, we'll give it the extra console slot on top so nobody can complain" ..

I find it interesting how you're talking down on its powers, which means as far as I'm concerned you clearly are bias against it to begin with. It's really easy to disregard another persons oppinions when you feel they are not being objectionable.

Simple fact is other ships are getting consoles for freaking cloaking devices, excelsior should have gotten an extra science slot at the very least for the console, hell the T3 version did get an extra slot I believe.
