# 21 Keep the MVAE powered up!

I love my MVAE. I just hope they don't "normalize" its power. The Federation is finally getting some ships that can go one on one with the KDF carriers and such. I just hope they make it were each section will ram a select target after another section has done so!

lol no

The MVAE also has a different BOff slot layout, making it its own ship. Not to mention they had to model three different sections for each ship costume available for the Prommy. So yeah, a fair amount of work went into it. Moreso than the Defiant Refit ever got, but I don't see you whining about that.

I see your reasoning to be upset, (duration and NUMBER of cloaked mines) ,BUT I personally find SOME of requests for "changes"on these said posts to be "excessive".
Particularly the request to make changes to the science ability of photonic fleet.
Photonic fleet is NOT pet spam, It is the LATEST science ABILITY being offered up by SOME for sacrifice. As a science captain, this my perspective. This annoys the hell out of me personally. Particularly since I've yet to see a post asking to reduce the numbers of birds of preys the carrier can equip. Isn't this contributing to the spawning problem and player lag too?

In the regards to player lag. It's my opinion that as the game improves and more items/content are introduced
this is going to be more and more of a concern. I wouldn't want the game to stop evolving, improving as it were. Many of these upcoming changes/content, may require more from our systems. . I was experiencing a lot of lag until I purchased a new system. Now I'm not having any issues at all anymore. I understand that many players might not be able to purchase new systems, but they might be able to update their current ones at a much more reasonable cost. At some point, these lower end systems are going to be a more and more of a concern in many regards to the online experience in general.

More to the point of this thread, I for one will not be purchasing this ship, which is a shame, because I want to. Reasoning, I know that what I pay for now, may not be the ship I end up with.

This exactly.

I'd agree with that if the thing was actually finished! Too many damn bugs and it's not graphically acceptable yet. Until then, it's not even worth half the current cost!

This exactly.
I was never against photonic fleet, MVAM, saucer seperation, and carriers. Wat outraged the PvPers is that you caould have all of the above, AND 4 mine launchers, with one launcher pooping out mines every 15 seconds (after global cooldown expires) all at the same time. Add to that the fact that anyone can launch Scorpion fighters, and let the CC overwhelming amounts of pet spam hilarity unsue.
