Hey hey, keep it clean. Try to avoid the sarcasm and condescension, just advice and constructive criticism.
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.

seems to me if people spent more time comparing notes and giving "detailed" and "documented" proof as to what they are claiming is happening with Cruiser A or Cruiser B it might actually be more helpful than just complaining that the cruiser is now a joke.... try to do something constructive get with everyone in here and compare cruiser builds and see whats working and whats not.....

I myself fly a Nebula Science ship It handles like a cruiser but with LESS weapons, but I can still do a fair amound of tanking if I so choose... alternately since it IS a science ship that gives me the Science Magic people have come to hate so much...

aside from the BOFF layout the Nebula Handles EXACTLY like many of the Fed Cruisers out there and it has Fewer Weapons.... and I can still handle whatever is thrown at me for the most part (unless of course I am the focused target in PVP)

just my 2 strips of latinums worth

Re-reading your post I realize I am in error. I read it as you saying that a patrol escort had 4 eng power slots, not consoles and that you were referring to PvE, not PvP. In my defense It didn't FEEL that late lol.

That said I do not believe you need a Power Transfer console in a cruiser, but I only run my cruiser alt in PvE, not PvP. I gave up even casual PvP when it became impossible to play a match against anything that wasn't a PvP premade.

Thanks for the 2nd look. Been there, done that, got the T-shirt. lol

It probably depends on what build your running in a cruis if you need the Power console or not. I do not use them on any of the escorts I run (patrol, carrier, or even the 1000 day ship) with 4 DHCs and turrents but much need to on the excel beam boat due to the power requirements it takes to maintain even 6 Mk XII 3XACC beams. Without the Mk 12 (80%) power console, (even with max points in) weapon power drops way below 60 with just FaW and BO drops it a boat-load. With it, power stays mostly up over 60 even with BO3 and DPS goes up accordingly. Mav even suggests running 2, but I just can't bring myself, yet, to see hull resists drop that far.
