Still, idk that it's any more dangerous than a Bug, Andorian ships, or even Aux2batt Heavy Escort Carriers.

Sci B'rels still have a Sci spam role and there's still a couple of unique Alpha combos only a Raider can pull off, but those are fewer and fewer these days.

The dog fighting days of raiders has been over for awhile now, this change doesn't help/hurt that style of play in the bigger picture.
Ah now we are getting down to play style I suppose. but thats for another thread.

Im curious if people will use saucer sep more with this change though?
