...I suspect I've missed the 'Cruisers are OP' thread during my travels.....
I saw it right next to the "Runabouts are very OP" thread last week
But wow, 1 sci vessel vs 5 klingons, at least one of which has got to be a BoP?
Did that sci vessel have chuck norris as captain, or were all 5 klingons trained in the Advanced Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy?
I would like to think I am a decent PVP science captain.
I know if I take on 5 klingons and win........I will ....I will......Truely I have no words as to what I would do cuz that seems so far fetched to me.
Last time I took on 5 Klingons -
- I was dead about 1/3 of a second later.
To be perfectly honest, my first ship was a cruiser - mainly 'cos I'd read lots of stuff that suggested Eng captain/Cruiser was the way to go (I know now not to read the threads written in green crayon any more).
After being torn apart spectacularly in PvP by Klingons who went past me a 3x lightspeed sounding like chainsaws, while my ship dissolved in a flickering green kaleidoscope of violence, my reaction wasn't to post a 'Klingons are OP' thread, no - I thought 'want one of them!'
I'm wary of saying 'xxx is OP' because I am not a god of Boff skills, I don't (probably) optimise all my Boffs, or even my own skills, so if I get slaughtered by someone I figure it's more likely that they are more efficient than I am, and I try to figure out how to improve, how to (perhaps) get closer to the standard of the guy who just swatted me... it's actually one of the very few real challenges in this game in my view, to raise your own game to the level of those who have beaten you to a pulp.
My 5th toon is probably going to be ground oriented, for example - as a month or more ago the Klingon 'Holdholdhold' swatted me aside without slowing from a fast jog, and I'd like to be that deadly on the ground....
...so don't complain 'X is OP' unless You are positive that's true, and it's not just that you aren't actually playing a very good builld - or your build is okay and you aren't playing it well.
Whilst if you are sure 'XXX is OP' then before you campaign to kill it, at least give it a go to see if there are good reasons to keep it that way.
Now, where's that Bat'leth I picked up at the Risa PX?
