So all MMO models are not switching to a pay-to-win format?

That aside Star Trek fans are known to pay massive amounts - silly amounts of money for anything Trek.

How are you getting that from what I said? lol or are you asking me? because I have no idea.

I just miss the old everquest days of grinding the big eye balls in the elephant graveyard for gear. Always found it fun! And a great social experience, as you had to group with other people to get the gear..and since you had to pay, there were much more serious players.

Not like these STF's, where one move could screw it all up. This was just wonderful hours of grinding away for an epic weapon/robe or whatever.

Now they just want our money. All of it I tell you! All of it! haha

And I agree we do.. I have put way too much moola into this game since I started almost 700 days ago.

Wait, wasn't this about a ship. Where the heck did this topic go lol

At least now I am ranting for both Fed and KDF!

Well I havn't got as far as ranting for an OP KDF ship but more for basic game things like fixing bugs, making KDF more visible - things like that.

Why else did you think the Chinese moneygrubbers bought over this game's developers?

PS: I'm a Chinese moneygrubber myself.

If the ship has a maneuverability of 6 it will
Bomb.

Unless it has a console to counter the insane
Speeds of the timeships , If it does have such
A universal console it's sales will soar

If it has a manoverability of 9 or more it's sales
Will soar ,a universal commander would help sales

Looks slow and slower to me , will possibly need
A entire STF map to turn around . Not very pleasing to
My eye either.

We can only hope it has many modification
Choices for it's looks if it happens to be any
Good

Cross your fingers ........heh
Jellico....Engineer.....Stargazer KDF Tac
Saphire.. Science.....Ko'el Rom Kdf Tac
Leva........Tactical.....Mailu KDF Sci

JJ-Verse will never be Canon or considered Lore...It will always be JJ-Verse

Can I join in with a guess on this one?

The Vesta will:
-be a Sci ship that can use Dual Cannons (3/3 weapons, Sensor Analysis, +0 weapon power)
-giving it a unique niche, so it won't bomb
-will have a very "meh" layout for dps, probably the LRSV's or the DSSV's
-with a gimicky console
-making it not too successful, either
-and will spawn a refit/reskin/re-whatever version half a year later that actually comes with a good layout and console or power bonus
-allowing them to double-dip on the sales
-and to save tons of licensing costs since the refit was made in-house.

That's how you make profit.
You really need to learn the Rules of Aquisition.

Give him a break, he may not have the lobes for business.

But then again... he could be a liquidator in disguise...

HIDE ALL THE LATINUM!!! QUICKLY!!!
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.

i agree this ship needs to be somewhat special if its going into cstore because of the new lock box and lobi temporal ships. if you charge a high price and then it doesn't do anything spectacular ie the regent then its going to be a dud like the regent . armitage was a new version of akira that had torpedo defense console plus it had a hanger and the tankiness of the derverish class escorts all toghter made her a bad ass escort which meant very popular
