There is a lot regarding game mechanics that have changed over the years. Bops used to be on par with a defiant. Now they are either better (pure burst) or basically a nut that gets cracked. Add the other variety of ships added, it's what it is. I will say, with the addition of Romulan's the focus of "nerf BoPs" (MORE because I suck and can't time a epts or tact team) has went down.
The Romulan ship/s (Fleet T'Varo is the only one I have played so far) on the other hand have way more damage potential. In many cases it's situational though. I find myself leaving both my tacts in kerrat and just change between the two as I see fit. But I'm not a big tact player and I am told I suck a lot so. idk whatdo? Quit????
Both are very fun but I find my Romulan being favored more even with less Rep and non-fleet/stf gear --- over my little BoP. That is disappointing, IMO. And I am not the only one who see this. I'm not saying they both aren't fun but when I can fly my Rom and do as much or more damage while dying less, that's profit. As I grind it more, it only gets better. It's silly since my other toon is over a year old and has all the bells and whistles.
That's the cash cow I guess
Regardless to date I spent $0 on my Rom other than the modules I bought on the exchange for 24m. If that is counted as P2W it was 20 I guess.

Didn't watch your stream but was told about it by a little birdie. Since you want this public and all. Lulz. BTW we never wish death on any of you. And wanting a fight so you aren't pugstomping isn't a crime. kkthxbai Hai Pax, Priest, Neo.
