There should be a big sign - the carriers need top pets, otherwise they are half a ship - if you're not ready to spend 70-80k dil, stick with the escorts or the cruisers.
Agreed.

I've seen loads of Obelisk carriers in STF's over the past fews day; I don't actually think that I've been in an STF without at least one being present since the FE was released.

BUT, as with pretty much any ship, whilst most of the players I've encountered using them were probably only using them because it's the latest new shiny - the by-product of this being some pretty poor builds and players who either didn't have fighters equipped or were simply not using them if they did.
On the otherhand, I've seen some players doing awesome things with theirs, and the Elite fighters, if used, can really give the likes of the Spheres (in ISE) real trouble.
