Yea, just checked out the store.

2000 CP for that thing?

Seems a bit much when other ships are only 1200 and if there is no other way to get it other than to buy it, ouch.

I don't normally say anything about prices for things in the store, but 2000 CP is pretty heavy for that and on top of that it is not an iconic ship either to my recollection.


Oh well, people will either buy or not buy it as they choose, but just the same, probably could sell a lot more for the 1200 pt value than the 2000 and not of made a lot of people irritated in the process.

It is just a ship. If you really want the newest shinest ship out there spend the credits. Otherwise, continue to hone your skills in your current ship. If its anything like the Gal-x, it does not turn on a dime and the javelin has a long cool down as well.

Also, like stated in other posts, this is not a REFIT. It is a brand new ship by terms of the game. It's basically the Gal-x equivalent. Continue to fly your Bop's and you will continue to kill feds.

It is not the Gal X equivalent, have you even tested the ship? The only thing it has in common with the Gal X is they have a similar (but not even equal) style of "death ray" special ability.

The complaint is that this is now a C-store only ship and it was never advertised as such. It would have been a perfect time to do so oh I don't - back when this post this post was made. Not the day of its release.

I believe this put the Nausicaan ship down to a Level 41 ship that is now coming out in December once they have time to finish all the crazy animations on that thing.

Im not surprised that Cryptic made this move. They saw that the Gal-X worked for the Feds in C-Store, so it was logical to try the same move here.

What hey did took into account is the lack of content we already have and that they promised more content. For me they broke their promis and shoew that hey are again untrustworthy with this ship and my subsricption will not be renewed when it runs out.

The problem is, the Gal-X has also fallen out of favor, which is why you don't see that many flying around anymore.

true hawks, many people bought it, they expected it to be a game changing ship and were greatly disappointed it wasnt. I purchased it tested it and liked the fact it was not over powered, it was a different kind of ship for sure, and you have to fly and fight with it, very differently then you normally do any other cruiser. It added to my enjoyment and was a lot of fun.

But this destroyer? now this is a horse of a diff color. Sure others will whine, complain cry foul, etc. Listen folks, If I ever got that upset over a game I would have it deleted so fast off my computer it make the manufacturers head spin. That kind of silliness just is not worth it. Far, far to many other games out there to enjoy without aggrovation.

That being said, I tested and flew the Destroyer on the test servers. Whoa.... now THIS is a ship. It can move, I was running 42.8K hull hp's, 10.8ishK shields and this little beastie in normal mode was a pretty viscous escort, and it had HP'S! WOOHOOO. ITs gimmick weapon, the disruptor lance, holy crap... now why cant the Gx phaser lance hit like this rascal? 11.7K base damage, I nearly one shotted a borg cube equal level to me in a STF with it, blew his shield facing down AND ripped his health down to 32% on a crit. I sat there blinking at the screen in disbelief and said.... "Oh yeah! my Gx never could do that, WHOS NEXT!!!!" and had sooo much fun flying this little monstrosity.

so will I ever purchase this for the 2k points. Unlike the Gx, yeah this little rat might just be worth it. You have to fly it way differently then you do a normal escort, and your attack strategy. Like the Gx, which you have to treat a bit like a big escort to make it work well, hit and run tactics. It can be used but it is something you have to master. This ship is no different. It is a ship that folks will have to master.

Now, the issue of it being unfair? looking around team, don't think any of us got invited to the CEO board meeting, sooooo that should explain a few things. Face it, they are a company to make money, period. WE are the folks who are buyin their product. Is it fair that this is a Cstore only ship? Well that is personal opinion. But lets not our own opinions degrade into personal attacks and let our typed words match the iq of our shoe size either.

While I would say even Dstahl would of like to done something one way, He too has a boss to report to and can get overruled, if he likes it or not. So lets cut everyone including each other some slack and breath folks.

>GASP< A voice of REASON... HERE?!?!? How can this be?!

Yeah, I have to agree with you on this. Although dissappointing for those of us who really WANTED the ship, but are currently cash poor right now (4 kids, christmas...), I don't see what all the fuss is about. It never fails to amaze me just how EXPLOSIVE some nerds can be!

Personally, I have always been the laid back, do your own thing nerd...
I think a lot of the peeps here are RAGE NERDS that probably got many a wedgie in school for loving Star Trek. LOL
