The idea behind the "nay sayers" (I think) is that it's very tricky to refit a clunker and not give it powers that are seemingly near magical and out of place both in PVE and PVP .
I agree with you that at the beginning of the game you take out top-of-the-line enemy ships in T1 & T2 clunkers . However , the difference is that those ships (your ships) were not outfitted with uber powers , it was the enemies you fought were of weaker caliber .
And there is a huge difference there .
The B'Rel was given a "special power" that sorta equalized it's hull weaness , but if I play it against PVE or PVP enemies , I have to suspend dis-belief that this ship can survive the harshness of T5 , just as if I now replay the game from the start , I have to roll my eyes at all the Negh'Vars that I cream in my T1-T2 ships .
Because it's not realistic , not in T1-T2 , and nor would it be realistic to get creamed in PVP by a T5 Connie .
OTOTH I belive in giveing the ppl what they want , the question is what is it they want ?
Weak T5 ships with "classic" skins (and a low abilitie/slot count) , or T5 ships with full T5 abilities / slot counts ?
The latter has some ppl up in arms .
I'm wondering if it's possible to get both ?
