My main reasons for wanting the MVAE, admittedly, are aesthetic: I really like the look of the Prometheus-class, and the multi-vector assault mode is really nifty (and, I would imagine, is the sort of system any Engineer would love to work with in the actual setting).
So, my question is, do you find the MVAE to be worth it? Would it work for an Engineer Captain in PVE? Or is it simply the case that there are better ships out there for me to choose from?
There is sadly no reason to be an engineer neither in PVE nor PVP in this game, the measy extra self defense doesnt go up against the awesome Tactical damage, sci is also quite useless these days, only really viable in PvP, and well perhaps the hive stf lol....
