I'm going to run the ship I want regardless if Johnny Starship Captain rants about how bad it is. They don't like it, that's what ignore is for.
As for the Ambassador, cruisers really need to make a comeback as the battleships of the fleet. So I'm hoping for a little more from the C Store version that will be released after they give a free taste to everyone with the basic ship giveaway.(Like they did with the Odyssey.)
As for balance, escort ships should be all offense with basic defense. Like a Borg cube, they should be hard on the outside, soft on the inside. They should not be at the top of the food chain. They should be quick strike and get out of dodge. Not, lets tank this tactical cube point blank without moving and then survive its explosion after its destroyed and fly on to the next one, then rinse and repeat because its so OP.
This is one of the major problems with PvP. Nothing is balanced like it should be.
My 'hate' is directed at ANY new Federation ships. I don't care what it is. You lot already have enough ships, as I've said elsewhere.
You. Don't. Effing. Need. More. Effing. Ships. Get used to not having a shiny new toy to throw money at every 1-2 months.
The KDF faction should be the focus. It's supposedly the focus for S8, so it should be getting the bulk of all resources (including ship-designing resources), at least for the S8 period. Put the effing Fed faction in maintenance mode for a while. Bring the KDF faction up to par before throwing more toys at the Federation.
Of course, that's always been far too much to ask. So Cryptic will just screw around with giving the KDF crumbs while allowing the Federation to retain the edge in development and content, and thus the bulk of the playerbase. And Federation petaQ'pu will mock the KDF for complaining about being dumped on.
