# 1 Gurumba please buff?
09-04-2012, 03:20 PM
Hello,

Since most lockbox ships and fleet ships are all buffed klingon ships, and since Gurumba is A cstore ship, I find that buffing this ship a bit would be appropriate.

What if it just simply had its turn rate restriction in siege mode reduced or removed?

I love flying it in seastar (siege mode) but the turnrate is a too big of a penalty.

Just a suggestion,

Discuss.

I agree i think a simple turn rate reduction during seige mode is in order.

This would make the ship more competative in pvp as well as pve.

A siege ship by definition is not supposed to be maneuverable, nor a PvP ship. She is designed to place massive firepower on a fixed position - thus the change from flight mode to siege mode. Think of an STF gateway, a perfect target for this ship. Or have one or more placed such as to cover the exit point of a wormhole. Probe duty is another place they shine.

She is a niche ship, and best used for the purpose she was designed for.

A little bit small thinking huh? "Nor a PvP ship"

Trying to dumb down the meager pvp in this game even further? Respect the people who do want to pvp, we respect you pve'ers as well trying your good effort to try and blow up a gateway! Cuz thats so damn hard hahaha without having a spinal lance or javelin :p

I am not in any way "dumbing down" any aspect of play in this game. I am merely pointing out the obvious - there are many ways of fighting an enemy, and weapons are designed for a purpose. This ship in particular was NOT designed for what you want her to do - I suggest you use a ship that WAS designed for that - like a Raptor, Kar'fi or other first line warship. I would rather see the ships made the way they are supposed to be (Qin incorrect pivot point) than force ships to do that which they were not designed to do.

Siege ships are designed to conduct sieges - hospital ships to heal - transports to move cargo/troops. Each has a purpose - and that is not necessarily to be in an open battle.

I dont think it gets a fleet variant due to not having a console rather built in ability,

It would be nice to lose the turn rate nerf in siege mode, but being skeptical, i cant see it happening (though it would be nice to have!)

If they bump the Cruisers, battle Cruisers turnrates then I can see the Gurumba getting one as well for its "cruiser mode".
