This is how the turn rates should be to make cruisers competitive:
Tier 2 -> 9
Tier 3 -> 8
Tier 4 -> 7
Tier 5 -> 7
None of these ships will be able to out-turn their Klingon counterparts so they won't be overpowered. Cryptic really should consider this their first fix to Fed ships in the next major patch. The more threads like this one, the less that Cryptic can ignore them.
Sign in if you agree.
Or make a stupid troll comment if you like to pretend that cruisers are fine but never fly them yourself because you know escorts and science ships are always more effective.
