# 1 Can the Excelsior compete?
03-04-2012, 12:00 PM
As sleek and tough as the newer ships are I have a soft spot for the older, lower tier ships specifically the Advanced Heavy Cruiser Excelsior (no refit). Do any of you think itís possible to beef it up to compete with the bigger ships in STFs and PvP? And what might those builds look like?

Thanks.

The Excelsior has the Best DPS of all the cruiser of course it can compete.

...The question then becomes. Why on earth would you want to gimp yourself by using the Tier 3 version of a ship that exists at Tier 5!?

It can be rather intimidating when looking at the hull and shielding stats. but i guess it can make up for that with its turn rate.
