Well...they can harass them if them if they are looking to get banned for life.

I'm not a fan of Dervish either, but the fact I can edit the look of my ship and make up my own class settles it fine for me....plus I have a niffty "NX" to put on my ship..so in a RP sense, I am making my own class of Escort...that which I deemed "Sentinel". :)

So what's wrong with Dervish? If you actually understand what the Dervish were ( not are, but were) Then it's a very fitting name for a fast and fearsome warrior vessel.

The only thing that Cryptic got wrong is that they neglected to check that it has been lifted straight from one of the best ever space combat games, Homeworld, and is actually a n anti-capital ship multi-beam war frigate.

So if you want to remind your customers how flight combat actually should be what better way than to name one of your vessels after a ship from a game that did it better a decade a go?

it's ok, i am sure cryptic is even more disappointed with you, and shocked at how puerile some parts of their playerbase can be.

there is no dervish, its just written on a button in the ship customizer, there are fleet escorts.

But whatever the reason you are here, you are here and you are expressing 'shock and disappointment' at cryptic for a ship class name. It has been rightly pointed out that it does not affect the game in any manner other than when you are in space dock it is a name given to a T5 class of escort parts that you can use for your ship.

I'm still waiting for the explanation of why you would be so shocked over a name. Let's have some reasoning please and then we can see at least where this conversation was meant to go.

And just so you know where we are coming from, I'm the sort that will say a lot to a man's face and rarely gets any lip in return.

Did we really need to revive this again? Can we go to stuff that actually affects the game? like difficulty, exploits etc? This is stupid.
