Wow Odyssee 5 Eng Consoles ? Are you serious Cryptic ?
 
I mean i don't say alot of ships are OP sure there is a few advantages in some ships over others but seriously 5 Eng Console Slots ? What did you guys smoke when you came up with that because i want some too. I guess it will take a 3 man team now to get 1 cruiser down if skilled and played right and you better have a science with you.

I can see Era taking 5 man pugs appart without any support in a cruiser like that. That is a joke and Cryptic you made every other Cruiser we paid money for useless compared to this uber Cruiser.

Oh and btw. Where is my Escort with 6 Tactical Console Slots ?

Just wait till next month when a new escort or sci vessel comes out that will invalidate all other escorts/sci vessels that have been bought and paid for.

We said it with the Rhode Island, "it's a slippery slope and before we know it bam, selling T5 +1's in the c-store".
"Nooooooo", the apologists and devs said. "There are no plans to do T5 +1's".


Look where we are now.

Yeah you are absolutely right and it ticks me off quiet a bit. It makes me feel the pain for every ship i have and paid cryptic points for it. All those Cruiser right now become virtually useless. But then right now i don't do pvp anyway since the great still not fixed Jem Hadar Shield.

I really need Diablo III to come out so i can get away from this...

To be perfectly honest, having 5 engi slots is not as OP as you would think considering that to get the most benefit you need to sacrifice 3 of your total consoles... In fact during testing I had a hard time justifying equipping all 3 special consoles since it nerfs so many of my console slots...

I think the real problem is with the Sensor Analysis on the sci version. Sub-System Targetting would be FAR less OP.

Honestly, I think Era would fly the Sci variant with 4 Engi Consoles and 4 Sci Consoles. But that is my opinion, and I don't know him personally to be able to make such an accurate assumption properly. :rolleyes:

If sensor analysis stays, the sci one will probably be the only one really worth flying, imo.

Did that on tribble, you are absolutely right.

Which raises another issue: The problem with buying only one of the versions lies with the possibility that that version gets nerfed...
