It's sad to say, but so did I. Just from some of the stats that were discovered prior to the blog it was obvious the ship was OP. After the blog though... Wow.

13 turnrate
1.35 shield mod
Can equip dual heavy cannons
4 tac consoles on the tactical version
Sensor Analysis (so effectively after 1 min it'll have more firepower then an escort)
Console powers
And Danubes!?

Cryptic is obviously seriously desperate for cash.

One ship to rule them all indeed.

I said it in the other thread, but I'll say it here too... not only was I wrong (well, technically they're wrong - but it's their game, so I'm wrong) - but I was so wrong with this monstrosity that in 2013 editions of most dictionaries, you're going to find my face next to the definition of wrong.

I mean, seriously... WTF were they thinking?

Well, I know they were thinking - giggity giggity, 5k zen - we're going to make money!

But this is absurd...

Honestly what did you expected from a Mary Sue ship from a bad fanfic series of novels?

Good to know Geko didn't lost his touch at creating imba ships...

If you?d like to start saving up now, consider taking advantage of the Bonus Zen Promotion that?s currently running.

Reading really is fundamental.
Thanks for the snarky comment. What thread was that in?

Your welcome

You think that your beta test was bad?

Sadly some are crying that it's not OP enough. Obviously you can't please everyone all the time.

But...but...the way that blog post starts off...

...to where it goes?

That's more of a lost touch with reality.

How do you go from starting off saying that they wanted to avoid the potential OP of what the ship was to some folks to a ship even more OP than was imagined - whether hoped for or dreaded?

i really don't see how they could have made a more overpowered ship, i don't think its possible. well, unless they did silly things like give it a 2.0 shield mod, 20 turn, 60K hitpoints. i mean without grossly exceeding stat parameters it isn't possible to make anything better then this. it has literally everything. the best pet, the best weapon, the moat crippling skills available, the most synergistic station and console setup possible, and BS console powers.

heres what a vesta that would neatly fit with in the game in a balanced way would look like

Rank Required: Vice Admiral
Hull Strength: 27,800
Shield Modifier: 1.30
Crew: 750
Weapons: 3 Fore, 3 Aft
Device Slots: 3
Bridge Officer Stations: 1 Lieutenant Tactical, 1 Lieutenant Engineering, 1 Commander Science, 1 Ensign Universal, 1 Lieutenant Commander Universal
Base Turn Rate: 10 degrees per second
Impulse Modifier: 0.16
Sensor Analysis
Subsystem Targeting
Can Equip Cannons
0 Hangar Bays
+15 Power to Auxiliary Systems
Console Modifications: 3 Tactical, 2 Engineering, 4 Science
