if the ONLY STF you play is Infected, it's not bad for STFs.
everywhere else, it's basically worse than a Vo'Quv. Yes, it has enormous firepower potential-problem is, actually getting that firepower in a position to take the shot-which is where the design fails utterly. (The Vo'Quv only holds one advantage-but it's a key advantage-the ability to deploy swarms of smallcraft that CAN turn...)
remember: the only time Potential firepower COUNTS is when you can APPLY IT. The shot you couldn't take or the shot that misses, neither one matters, only the shots that HIT can do damage!
In observation: Bortas are easy meat for Feds in Ker'rat, and the few I've seen in the que'd PvP only make a positive difference when the rest of the team is built around keeping the opposition off their flanks while facing five kirking feds in slower fed cruisers.
I will reiterate: POTENTIAL firepower (peak DPS) only matters if you can actually line up the shot. when you can't, it becomes meaningless.
So why didn't you just come on here and say "I don't fly one cause I don't know how to fly one."? I mean that's what your saying right? Don't worry though, we aren't gonna get into this. You just keep on not being able to do stuff and blaming the stuff, the devs, and anyone but yourself. But please, stop telling other people that they can't do it.
And why the heck are you bringing carriers into this?
Budget Bortas in KA
Bortas in Cure and Fleet Event
It is a big slow ship. It has some fun consoles. The ubercannon combined with dem doffs is uber silly. If you don't mind driving a ship like it's a huge assualt ship, its great. Think of a WWII style SP Gun. The other ships are just insanely fast. I really like the console and boff layout on the fleet Vor'cha, but hey, they are all capable ships. The only obvious bonus of the Bortas set is that you do gain 3 ships that you could set up for different missions. I admit I didn't. I simply kept the command version.
Cheers happy flying, and this ship is fun for any borg stf. Except maybe the ground missions. And don't let anyone tell you different.
PS: Romulan or the Transport Escort events all my toons use escorts. Just the way it is those are speedy turny missions. The right tool for the job and all that.
