Why not? Infinite combinations, infinite possibilities. i think the Federation could use a few variants on the assault cruisers or star cruisers and turn them in to flight deck cruisers.

i'm hoping the Typhoon becomes a dedicated carrier or command ship.

I think the reason why some people don't want more carriers is that they are challenged by using the mouse for selecting their target. Hence the "spam" term they use for the fighters.

Of course, if an easier target selection method could be implemented (such as a button "select next enemy player ship"), then these people would have more fun.

As much as I would like to see the Typhoon, being my favourite ship design, I would rather not see it as a carrier. We FEDs just got one, besides, the Typhoon does not look like a carrier to me.

Because cruisers (especially low tier cruisers, if you're counting all the Orion FDCs) always trump escorts, correct?

Is this what they teach you in Starfleet?

/I suppose this explains why I see so many Starfleet cruisers in PUGs.

Well, to be fair, with the poor targeting selection of STO, bad hit boxes, you can click on a target five times before you actually select the target.

Combine that with abilities that shake off target lock, and you have a recipe for screaming frustration.

I'm all for that argument. In the long term I would like to see more ships of "equal" balance on both sides, not just favoring one as has been with Starfleet since the get-go.

In all fairness, you are ok with the Feds getting more ships before the KDF?

Because if you are, and if you use the same old argument that because everyone plays Feds, which is not a valid argument by any means, it goes to prove a long standing proposition.

The Feds are very satisfied.

Before the carriers made their way Fedside, I remember reading countless threads about how once the Feds got the carrier, they would start moaning about how weak is was, how unfair it is that the KDF are so OP.

And here we are.

For a moment I almost believed you. But, please go take a long hard look at just what the Feds have in comparison to the KDF. Please.

Could you do everyone here a favor and try to be objective? You're just oozing elitism right now.

Sorry but the OP is out of his mind.

Just sounds like he gets blown up in Ker'rat too much.

Lol you want a ship to launch 8 shuttle craft all with weapons and equipment you customized.

Must have been drunk or high when typing that one:biggrin:
