Cruisers aren't "losing" the DPS race. They're not even competing. Nor should they be. It isn't their job.
They're almost certainly going to come out with an Ambassador pack shortly after the 3rd anniversary that releases 3 new, better versions of the pack then the free one. Perhaps then, a more tactically-biased ship would be appropriate, but the free one should be little more then a toy, as it's going to be in
hands..I can agree with it being unique (OP's suggestion), but I can't agree with with it being superior, or even equal to, anything that costs real money..
We don't need a free Vesta flying around that everyone can have.
Wow are you serious, did you even read my post? First off I'm not suggesting that this cruiser be any better then those currently available. It has, what I would consider, a decent tac layout, nothing over the top really with a single LTCmd tac officer spot. Also, having 3 tac consoles is basically what the majority of cruisers currently have, other then the star cruiser and free oddy. Also, your comparison with my suggested ambassador and the Vesta is laughable. My build idea does not even come close to being as powerful as the vesta in any of its three forms. It would basically be on-par with the regent and excelsior (who both have LtCmd tac spots) Also, no where did I post this as a possible free version. It's just an idea for a sci-heavy cruiser. While I do agree that cruisers do, and rightly so, less damage then escorts. Most people that run cruisers still put forth an effort to make them do as much damage as possible, at least most people I know do. No one I know has chosen a ship they specifically know will do less damage when another is available to them unless they are specifically in love with said ship. IE people who love next gen flying the galaxy even though its not a very good ship.
