SINCE THE NEW POLICY, of the smartest people on the planet, namelly, PWE, to do not put new ships to tribble for testing, we get FAILS, FAILS, FAILS.
I just tried to enter a stf, surprise..... i don't meet class requirements.
I'm curious what EPIC FAIL you will have in season 6. ( maybe you approach the base and it attacks you, or maybe, even you get it, and after a patch, it says it is not your base, go build ourself another one).

lol dont want to sound like a whiner but the KDF has 2 light carriers and a full size carrier. and feds have 1 full size and now 1 light carrier. But leave it to the masses of the ever crying klinkers to start screaming about how unfair it is. the KDF has quite possibly the best tac ship in game in the guramba. the KDF has the BoPs which is a ship full of universal boff slots and even after this ship still have one more option for carriers. oh yeah and plasmonic leech console is not a bit op at all.

and the escort carrier wasn't released on tribble for testing.. why?... oh ya, cause YOU guys tested it an said it was fine, oh look, the ship is bugged, next time you plan to release a ship, do us all a favor an put them on tribble first, its the test server, so why not use it to test unreleased ships hmm?

Same old Cryptic politic. You have already paid, it's your fault. Do not bother us.

Man you guys will complain about everything. Nothing works 100% of the time, so it has a bug, big deal. I think they do a great job even if you guys complain about every little thing. If its so bad don't play, go some where else and play some perfect game. Every game has its bugs. The problem with you complainers is that you want everything now, instant fast food style and in perfect working order. its not possible with millions of lines of code. I know thats what testing is for but it does not always catch everything.

I think the new ship is great, good job

Well not getting a new ship this month I guess. Raging on the forums about this ship and my friends are always wondering why I wait to buy anything new off the CStore.

I was going to buy this ship when I got home from work, but with all the love for the ship on the STO forums I think maybe I'll pass on this ship for now and hope the next new escort doesn't take another 2 years to come out.

Ok is there an ETA on when we can take the T5 Akira Class into an STF? And is the Photon Torpedo PDS suppose to be bound only to the ship?

I would like to say that I think the size needs adjusted. Actually, preferably, the Akira and variants need increased. This new ship seems to be roughly 50% bigger than the ship she is based off of. If you mix and match parts, they do not look right. There is not any smooth transitions between the parts.

finally someone get's it

the rest of you, LIGHTEN UP. everyone know's about the issue, but calling Cryptic a fail won't get things done

Weird things I hate about my new 16 ship:

1) I can't use Scorpions. Think about that for a sec: It's a carrier that can't carry Scorpions, which even non-carrier starships can launch. Bravo to the common sense department guys. I can deploy a replica of the Phoenix, but a Scorpion is beyond my ship's capabilities

2) It can't take part in STFs. An end-game ship that can't take part in pretty much the only endgame content we have. Yes, it's a bug, and yes, a fix is coming (apparently), but it does rather beg the question - if the ship wasn't even given the most basic testing in STFs, the content it's most likely to be used in - how was it tested?

3) Piloting an escort-carrier is a really odd experience, it's not like a traditional carrier where the attack craft fly off and do the damage while the slow carrier stays behind coordinating - the escort outruns the fighters, so finding a decent use for them is tricky

Cool things I love about my new 16 ship

1) Oh my god it looks awesome
1a) +Reman prototype shield = Oh my god this is probably the sexiest ship in STO

2) Thunderchild PDS and Armitage PDS have separate countdowns, and are both on a 3-minute timer, so I can fire off the phasers to wear down shields and then hit the big button of make things go boom. This makes sense.

3) Balance actually seems ok, I'm doing 1654 damage per torpedo Vs 4K+ from my quantum torpedoes, and only 6 will hit any single target, at most (taking the equivalent in damage to 1 1/2 quantum torpedoes, at most)

It's a PDS, it's not going to ruin any big ship's day, but it's going to beat the hell out of smaller ships. combined with the lower hull strength the Armitage has a decent niche as an anti-carrier

(Oh, and PDS damage IS boosted by consoles)
