As the Devils advocate, Why should the fed Cruiser get a power buff? Just becuase they do not have access to the Plasmonic Leech?
Is that really the defense to base such a buff for Cruisers on, becuase " Feds don't have it."?
How will you compensate those KDF players whom do not use it but are disadvantaged if the Cruiser get a buff to compensate for the KDF's use of the PL?
Should we also give said buff to Battle Cruisers since they are the KDF form of a Cruiser? Why would it be only a fed thing? Do they have better Power sources over the KDF?
I'm all for buffing the Cruisers turn rate and/or Inertia stats to give a better gameplay feel but only if its not a buff soley to them alone and a balance is maintained. Otherwise this is still a pointless debate as the "we need this " buff will quickly be turned by fan perceptions into a "we deserve this buff becuase we feel we do" buff.
Or such is what I think the Devils Advocate would respond with in this situation.
