This is something almost all MMO's strive to avoid- unbalancing inter-player combat in favor of those who spend more money. It's insulting to players in a free to play game, but understandable in order to generate revenues.

In a fee per month game though, priced the same as any other MMO, its inexcusable.
No it isn't superior to anything.

Dstahl told me in a previous thread that certain teams just get their stuff out first.


It just always seems to be the stuff that puts a few more coins in atari's pocket.
I'm not surprised either considering they've been working on this ship for at least four months and the bugs we're dealing with now started with an issue tied to the updating patching process that started two weeks ago and requires people outside the STO team to fix.

Now if they are still saying this in a week or so, then they to take a look at it.
O, I know. If they go on a rage nerfing campaign, it just makes things worse. I would've liked to have seen how the original BO set up worked, but then they nerfed it. Now they can't do much with it I suppose.

Did you mean F=Ferengi ? Cause Farangi isn't anything I've ever heard of

Yes, you will have to excuse my bad spelling, after all I am raging at the moment.

Irrelevant. The tier 5 version has stats that are not available in the game otherwise. That is a gameplay-affecting feature avaialble only in the C-store, and that is breaking a promise made when they were selling lifetime subs.

if you read the wording they never actually said it would be only cosmetic. they used some very careful wording like 'almost' and 'virtually'

they said nothing is needed to play or complete the game. they never actually said it would never be game affecting in some way or only cosmetic. that is often something that we on the forums have created by interpreting their words

does it make it right, probably not, but they never broke their promise, they just worded their promise with some room to manoeuvre.

but of course that does lead to the argument of what is game affecting as everybody sees thing differently. simply having ships that look different can be considered game affecting to some people. i can buy an excelsior and slot if differently to someone else's ship but it does not mean i have an advantage, just something different. it could be argued that cosmetic is no different. i have something that looks different but gives me no real advantage over anyone else.

for me personally it does not bother me, i dont need the ship but i want one so im fine with that
