# 1 Season 6
07-23-2012, 08:23 AM
Thanks to the STO team for giving us Season 6, new content is what the community was waiting for. I love the game and the way things are going.

There are a few things that I am not so happy about:
-Tactical Escort retrofit unlocks at tier 3 with worse stats then the Fleet Blockade Escort which unlocks at tier 1? When you have a fleet escort already (bought recently for 120k dilithium) you still need to buy 4 fleet modules? Isn't there somekind of compromise for those who own a tactical escort retrofit, bought the fleet escort because of the better stats and now want the enhanced version of this fleet escort?? Bit greedy if you ask me and I am not even considering the commodities required to upgrade your shipyard and such. The price of the new ships would become astronomically high if I did. But ok, I appreciate a challenge but come on, give C-store buyers a break.
-Fix the Exchange please. It is a nightmare to find stuff, see your stuff placed on it etc. This was one of the better futures of the (ground) game play. Almost no reason for me to be on the ground now.
-If you make new items that can be sold, don't forget to create a search button for it on the exchange window or else they can't be found!
-The forum account switch to PWE gave me a crap reward. That's ok! Wanna help you out in this area but... I can't access my in game mails on the forum Private messages anymore, this was a very handy feature to sort out your mail because the ingame mail system (pardon my French) sucks. No options there! Besides the fact that I can't delete mails (Exchange sales exp.) after I took down the items from it.

So please fix these essential things because they downgrade season 6 to 5.1 and it can be real good!

Thank you for your attention and keep up the good work!

If you own the C-Store version of the ship for Example the Defiant-R it only requires 1 fleet Module to get it.

But I'm not sure what you mean here.
I was once DKnight1000, apparently I had taken my own name so now I'm DKnight0001.
If I ask you a question it is not an insult but a genuine attempt to understand why.
When I insult you I won't be discreet about it, I will be precise and to the point stupid.

I have the tactical escort retrofit (c-store), I bought the (previous named) fleet escort with 120k dilithium because of the better stats.

If I want the fleet blockade escort, I need 4 fleet modules.
I think it is strange that the tactical escort retro unlocks at tier 3 fleet shipyard while the stats are worse then the fleet blockade escort (unlocks at tier 1 shipyard). The TER is a c-store ship and there should be some advantage if you buy with Zen.

I.m.o. the tact escort should be upgraded so it levels with the fleet escort. The cloak is useless as it is not a battle cloak so you dont have much value in this ship.

The fleet version of the Tac Escort Retrofit has 5 tac console slots and an absurdly high turn rate. With the exception of the Jemmie, nothing else has that. Player skill being equal, the fleet tac escort will out-dps the fleet patrol escort. So it's flimsier than the patrol escort (less hull, less shield), but the point of the Defiant was to do damage, not to be a tanky super-escort like the patrol version.

I don't think you're being gypped by shelling out another 1 module + 20k FC for a fleet tac escort at tier 3.

Sorry, but in any good pvp you don't need it. Perhaps when you do a STF or SF but when cloaked you can do any DPS and if it was battle cloak then you would be right. But if its valuable to you, fine with me

16 for fleet escort, 17 for Tac. So so for the fleet escort?

Because of 1 tactical ensign console? Both have same lay out and +15 to weapons.

If you compare them 1 on 1 I don't see these 'huge' differences.

If the shield had 0.99 and a bit higher crew rate, you would have more of a point imo. Now the difference between both ships is to less to put 2 shipyard tiers in between. The fleet escort is really upgraded but the TER not so.

The easiest way to compensate would be to grand access to the FTER at tier 2 shipyard and players who bought the fleet escort before the update should only pay 2 fleet modules if they want the new fleet version. I would understand if this change would put the fleet escort to tier 2 shipyard.

The thing I don't understand is why you think paying 120k Dilithium entitles you to a cheaper rate, than the person who chose the ship at RA and than purchased another ship for 120k Dilithium. Let's be honest I think paying $20 for a Fleet ship is a joke as it only unlocks it on a single character where buying the Tactical Escort Retrofit from the C-Store unlocks it for every character.

Now if paying the Fleet Modules once meant never paying them again even on another character I may be a bit more tolerant.

This. Remember that the Fleet Escort from pre-S6 is different from the new Fleet Escort. They are totally different ships, so I see no reason why you should get a discount.
I currently have the Patrol Escort (use to be Fleet Escort), waiting to get the Fleet Patrol Escort, I see no reason why I should get a discount.

Nope, nope, nope.
Have to disagree!
Gameplay is nice, content is cool, but gamers are horrible.

I hate season6 coz too many tards came back online and ruined the good play I had for a few months now. 7 Straight fails in STF elite and I could almost solo that s*** last month.
As long as people are talented and willing to learn i'm happy to help and everything is acceptable, but these ignorant piece of s**** geeks don't talk/read, learn, teamplay, they give as little F**** as to AFK through the whole event. There are more nabz in STO than in hello kitty online atm.

So I think i'll just sit this one out for a few months for things to go back to normal.
Sorry for the flame, it had to be said. After all truth is truth, undeniably.
