Shuttles in Fleet Events?
 
A captain came into the Federation Fleet Alert using one of the playable Peregrine Fighters. Presumably he just made an honest mistake as he left the match after a minute.

Bottom line is shouldn't shuttles be "off limits" to the fleet events just like it is to STFs?

it obviously should be like this, but that is not the only screw up enciountered so far with the new content.
i have to ask myself...what are they actually testing on tribble?

The good thing about this, as we learned from the Armitage STF incident, is that the devs have stated it can be fixed in about 1 minute.

I had someone in a Tuffli freighter (by accident) join, though I suppose Tier 1 vessels are allowed even in STFs?

Yes you can join STFs in a Miranda.

That'd be one very brave Miranda captain.

Fortunately shuttles have been a rare occurrence in fleet events so far.

The sad thing is: A well-equipped VA shuttlecraft or fighter can probably outperform everyone of those low-level Mirandas, Novas, Escorts and Constitutions we currently see in there, which seem to be intended to be there.

Actually even the best speced shuttle is no match for an original enterprise in terms of fire power (retro phasers at mk xII are as strong as any beam weapon in the game)

Wasn't there a problem before Season 6 where you could do the Vault event in a fully fitted capital ship? Cryptic seems to like all the bells and whistles but often forget to focus on the fine details and more often than not just move on to their next big income cash grab than going back and fixing what they have already made mistakes on.

As for Tribble, I recall reading on here somewhere that the Dev's admitted that Tribble isn't actually a testing server but a stability one, if it doesn't crash the game and is stable it gets put on holodeck. This is one of the biggest issues with the game and company, they don't test. So many minor issues would never crop up if they spent a couple of weeks fixing reported issues on Tribble before releasing the new content on holodeck. It's a really simple and easy concept that seems to fall on deaf ears. It's really sad as this game has a lot of promise if only they would listen to their customers rather than ignoring us. I could on go about their lack of communication too but I'd be here for hours and I need to see about heading to bed.

Suicidal seems more accurate to me, especially for Elite. :D
