Fleet Red Alerts - Not For Cruisers
 
Seen too many times since they were introduced with Season 6 that when you are in a group with nothing but Cruisers, you never finish within the timelimit, thus not getting your fair share of the Fleet Marks and basically wasted your time. (Even worse during Fleet Mark Events).


Cryptic, please revise these events so that they balance the time limits when there is PUG Cruiser Groups.

Or just have a queue system like this

Cruiser force (cruisers and science cruisers only)
Sci force (science ships Only)
Escort wing (Escorts only)
Training wing (lt coms and down , adjust to LT com not VA)
General alert (as it is now)
Cross faction wing (mixed team)
Solo elite (no team just you)
and
"Elite VA" team (only VA's)

then maybe everyone will be happy

i do ~90%+ of perfekt runs with cruisers so i dont understand your prob sorry

the only real prob can be that you get 2 lower lvls in your group then you must compesate alittle firepower but thats not really a prob.

Me in my ExcelsiorR and 2 star cruisers completed FRA with 13 seconds to spare each with over 4.5k dps avg... 2 others bugged out

agree

some times i get 2 Miranda class in team... is a bit difficult. but it is possible to do ... it's just work together

I think it depends on the cruiser. If you've maxed out driver coil and stuck a couple of RCS Accelerator consoles on it, you can improve the turning by a ton. That with the right firepower and you're good.

When the STF revamp happened, we told Gozer make so that 5xEsc isn't the only viable option for those events....nothing happend
THe FA revamp didn't happen, but currently the same problem exists since their appearance of Holodeck
The Redalerts....same thing
WIth the Fleetmissions we finally have some inkling towards healing and CC that sci boats/cruisers do better then Escorts.

Have they balanced the player classes and ship classes ....hell no, baby steps stumbling into the right direction.....

Just shows they think there is balance, but there is none.

Escorts may die fast, but given enough of them, you can clear out really fast. But Cruisers and Scis aren't the same.

Will they listen? Absolutely not.

I am flying a tactical odyssey in a cruiser and I don't have problems with Fleet Red Alert. A few days ago I was even in a 5 Odyssey group and we also completed all waves without problems.

Yes, with rainbow pony ships and low levels it is hard, but otherwise cruisers do fine.

Try a Fleet Alert with 5 Science Ships and tell me again this game is balanced....
