Really? A +1 to turn rate was considered excessive? The set bonus was prety meh to begin with.
Edit: for reference the bonus is now + .5 turn rate on the set bonus.
I hate this change.
As do I. I get that they're trying to say these ships are "huge" and therefore should turn like slugs, but c'mon they're also supposed to represent the latest in tech. Surely they would have found a way to give them respectable turn rates.
The idea that I could at least get a decent turn rate if I chose to Pay-to-Win made it at least tolerable. +1 Turn Rate bringing the ships to 7 and 6.5? Meh. That was not as impressive an incentive as I'd hoped, but might have been doable. But now +0.5 for $50?
