The real question is why the Fleet Escort, Defiant, and Raptor are conspicuously absent from those mentioned buffs.

Not that any of the ships needed a buff.

Not that often, and far less when you have a decent tank. Escorts are far too survivable IMO in the first place, the hull should be going the other way and the focus put on getting a balanced and capable team together.

Also, whyn do these get a buff when not too long ago, Cruisers took a 30% nerf to Accuracy?

It's one thing to have no balance through lack of ability/effort on the devs part, quite another to deliberately put it in.

I'm equally afraid of reading his reasoning, and of being left in the dark about it.

Of all the balance issues this is what you decide to work upon??? Escorts survivability has already been buffed through the roof with the doff system

To be honest, both the Akira and Prometheus are more towards the Cruiser end of the spectrum than say a Defiant.
Especially the Akira which actully is labeled as a Heavy Cruiser in several sources and certainly handles like a cruiser Canonicly.

What about the Galaxy-R? Which DOES need a buff?

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

Really? Huh. Someone on the Penny Arcade forum mentioned that the Armitage's hull HP was actually reduced somewhat shortly after launch. Are they going back on that already, or was the poster mistaken?

...well, whatever. I think I'm more concerned with how the KDF side of things will be balanced now. There should be something for those guys to counter back with.

lol. Once again the Klingons get shafted on a change.


I guess those Kirks needed more hitpoints to spacebar spam those ultra-hard featured missions. :tongue:

When they posted the details on the blog about the Armitage it had a Hull rating of 36k when it got release to the C-Store it was only 30k

I think they are just making it up a little as it is nearer the size of a cruiser than an escort.

I can understand why they are doing this.

Because the Jem hadar ship is OP...

It's typical cryptic backwards logic. Rather than nerf the OP ship, they have to OP the other ships to compensate.

Thing is though, we don't care about hull. We don't want hull. what we do want is the stupid jem ship to not have an 80 degree turn rate capability with a Fleet Escort layout.

Also, hull? LOL. If anything you buff shields, as hull points are a joke in this game.
