from what i understand the new patch had a new and improved material #6. now the way the patch notes said to make this work was to rebuy your escort carrier or adv heavy escort refit. well here is my experience. i dont notice any freaking difference. i still cant use the type 6 material if i use anything other than the thunderchild or the armitage, also the skin looks no different than it did before, and as an added bonus you guys broke the fleet emblem option.
so lets sum this up, perfect world fixed it by doing absolutely nothing to the ship and taking away the fleet emblem. if it aint broke dont fix it.
