# 1 The Rhode Island is Live

Cryptic snuck in the Rhode Island today and didn't change a thing. This is now the best ship at Tier 2 and already leaving it's impact on PvP (not the new console).

So how long before Tier 5 has this happening? Odyssey anyone?

Enterprise F will have 8 uber unique consoles that only T5 cruisers can equip

2 x "IPWN" tac consoles that give +OMFG to damage
4 x "Zombie" Engie Consoles that make AUX2SIF so strong the ship that gets it will glow like the sun
2 x "LOLSci" console that makes HE and TSS as strong as aforementioned Aux2SIF (post console)

Oh I think they should have just made it a skin, but people don't listen to me, lol.

Anyway I wouldn't worry too much about the Odyssey just yet, the ship will undoubtedly have drawbacks (I'm trying to stay optimistic) and the Klingons will have a new 'Flagship' counterpart as well.

LOL, I got a good laugh out of this one. Thanks for that, had a bad day until I saw this.

Yeah, my Invincible Mode was feeling lonely, being the only megabuff that ship had. Now it has 2! yay!

Sure, but wouldn't it be boring if we all fly the same 2 Tier 5.5. ships?


Of course, it's kinda temping to just develop a new tier of ships. Just throw away all this fine-tuned balancing stuff that only causes forum QQ when you screw up. Just add a power and be done with it. Tada, new tier of ships, C-Store money printing module installed.


Writing this post makes me sad. I used to be pretty optimistic about STO. In some ways I still am. But I can't help but getting more bitter and more snarky. I want my innocence back!

Innocence was OP, it needed a nerf.
