# 1 Newb 50 exploration crusier
04-10-2012, 02:05 PM
hi hit 50 and am lost as hell! Thought i would spend all my money on Exploration crusier retrofit with saucer seperation, and now am serously doubting my choice, had a first PVP today and man got blwon up in seconds, and now I even notice PvE the ship is just not good. Huge slow boat that blows up easy. sigh. Help.

What should I be doing to build a good tank?

Yes the Gal-R is the slowest ship the Federation has, but when you pop the saucer seperation your maneuverability will go up. For more help though you need to list your Boff power layout and which ones you really use heavily, and your basic tactical concept (beam broadsides, team healer, etc).

As for blown up in seconds in PVP, thats just an experience thing as much as anything else. The nature of learning curves, and the curve for PVP is pretty brutal on the low end.

I met a Gal-R in my Klingon ship before.

I had the upper hand at first and almost defeated him but then he separated the saucer and that got me in the end.

1 on 1 c-store ship would defeat comparable 'free' ship. My Klingon ship was a Bortas I think equipped with Mk XII anitproton beam arrays and dual beam and some very neat equipment. If he hadn't separated I'd have him but that ability gave him the win.

As promised, please see below.

If you build this as listed you will live through PvP matches, and do ALLOT of healing. Please note this build is not about damage (It does not matter how you build this ship as an Engineer captain, you can't do damage (not on the scale needed for PvP anyway). The Gal-R is literally one of the, if not the; best healing cruisers in game. Play to its strenghts.

As I have said in other threads PVP is the harshest possible enviroment. Your new, people will see you make a mistake and hammer you knowing it's an easy kill.

You could take a ship built to be an absolute beast, copy a "perfect" spec and still get wasted near instantly because you lack the experience. PVP is the Ultimate School of Hard Knocks and PVE is so easy it leaves many people just unprepared for it.

And to everyone who says the Galaxy is slow. Yes, All the Galaxies are slow, Tier 4, Gal-R, Gal-X and even the Odyssey are all turn 6 ships. Infact only 2 ships are slower, KDF Carrier and KDF Bortasqu Variants.
