So, the Avenger-class has five forward slots, and can mount dual cannons? Interesting...

Also, thank god for this. Cruisers and Science needed a good seeing too, glad that they're finally getting it.
Iconian? A label created by the Dewans to give voice to their destruction.
In the end, what they chose to call us is irrelevant.
We simply... are.

With DCs to boot. Now let's see how high they set the shield modifier, then try to claim it won't be tanky

Dumb question (addressed to Devs and Players alike): Which ships exactly constitute the Dreadnought class?

Obviously the Galaxy-X, and I'm assuming the Zen-Odyssey & Bortas'que are included. Would the free versions of the latter be counted too?
How about the "Vo'quv Dreadnought"? Admittedly, that's the NPC version, not the playable Carrier, but I'm curious nevertheless.

Will the Federation's Assault Cruiser (both normal and Refit) be considered a cruiser or a battle cruiser by these rules?

This is very welcome news and i look forward to trying them out.

So much awesome over the last few weeks. I'm glad things like lobi, afkers, sci powers and now cruisers are getting some attention. thanks.

Of couse it is. How could I ahve been so stupid. Thanks for the quick reply. You might want to clear up the phrasing on it to make it a bit clearer though.

It is funny, all I see are powers that indirectly make Escorts even more powerful.

The only way around this is to set the powers to not affect Escorts and Destroyers of any type....

Carriers will still benefit when they stick near the cruiser projecting the ability, so no, they do need to be mentioned right where they are. (The effect I think affects everyone, but realistically speaking, escorts are generally too all-over-the-map for them to really reap a noticable benefit. They just listed who the ability was designed to help.)

We now return to my regularly scheduled post:

*makes a finger pyramid*

Eeeexcellent.

Although lately, in CE and PvP, I have been suffering a bit of carrier pet and effects lag. If there's one downside, it's another permanent effect clogging up the graphics card.

=O

Consider me floored. Not only are the two most common complaints about cruisers, turn rate and beam array power drain, being dealt with but you're also buffing the cruisers tanking and threat control at the same time.

Wow. Just wow.
