Are both ships the same tier?

I just checked and they aren't, which probably accounts for their difference in price.

1200 vs 800 for quad cannons is unfair in my oppinion.

And you are completely entitled to your opinion. However the ships are priced by their tier, so that is the answer to your question.

Yes you are correct, the ship is pretty worthless and too high a price, the quad's are not as good as dual heavy's and you will only be captain for a few hours as leveling in this game to max level you can do it like a day or two if you play non stop.

So yeah if your going to line cryptics pockets with cash wait until your max level, then atleast it will be worth your cash. Well just about. :P

The quad cannons are sub-par anyway. They look and sound nice, but for actual damage you're better off with dual heavies.

Hmmm, I didn't notice the price for Sao Paulo went up. I swear it used to be only 800 too. I bought it the last sale and think I only paid like 640 or something for it. Maybe it went up during one of these last patches. Since your a lifer, at 600 days you can claim a VA ship so buy the Sao next time its on sale(or now) and when you hit 600 days, grab the Tactical Retrofit and load the quads on it. That is what I did. So its not a waste really. The quads are only useful on Galaxy X and escorts so at unless your taking a Galaxy or Intrepid retrofit at VA, you will get use out of the Sao costume and quads.
