Love my Armatage. Please don't nerf it. If anything some better pet A.I. and a display of some type showing how many I have launched/still alive and what they are doing would be greatly appreciated. Oh and the ability to command each wing separately.
NERF. NERF. NERF. If anything is so blatantly OP and gamebreaking its an escort carrier. absolutley retarded.
It's not much different from the MVAE and is FAR from the only escort I see in Fed vs. Fed PVP. The more I think about the MVAE the more I think it's biggest "problem" is one under performing pet.
The Armitage has nothing on a Jem'Hadar bug and seems balanced compared to some of the "goodies" klinks have enjoyed. After all who doesn't love Acetone Assimilator spam and ships that combat cloak when they hit 50% hull? Or better yet a B'rel BoP that fire's nothing but torpedo's so it doesn't leave cloak for more than a few seconds?
None of those things have been game breaking yet. I doubt this one will either.
The Armitage gives up some tac slotting for its pet and utility. This ship is most definitely not "Op". I'm also a cruiser fan who put his engineer in this ship. Outstanding loiter. It takes quit a bit of focus fire to convince an engineer Armitage captain to retreat, this thing can take a licking. I also enjoy pairing it with Delta flyers and Danubes.
