# 1 Give the Varanus Dual Cannons
11-09-2012, 09:07 AM
I just thought of something. Why not give the Varanus Dual cannons? I've been running it on my Gorn Alt and its a fun ship, but it just doesn't stand a chance firepower wise compared to the newer fleet ships. Of coarse, they KDF didn't even get a Science ship in the fleet store....

I doubt the guys at Cryptic even read the KDF forums. But think about this...I know you guys are in it for the bottom line and making a buck. KDF hasn't had a new ship since the Bortas pack back in spring where as the feddies have had something like four going on five releases. So how about throwing us a bone and giving us a few little things? Putting Dual cannons on an older C-store ship like the Varanus or even the Corsair probably wouldn't take much labor and it would at least be a good, but small, gesture.

And who knows might even generate some sales. I don't know the numbers, but I doubt the Varanus has ever sold well. I've been playing since F2P and I don't think I've seen more then a dozen, that might have been the same ship. I bet it took a good deal of resources to model it and insert it into the game, so why not get your money worth and freshen it up. Maybe do a blog post to highlight its new capabilities.

As nice as it would be I doubt they will, they won't even give us a fleet version of the Varanus. Plus once again the Federation, the ones who are supposed to be about peace once edge over the Empire, the ones who are supposed to be about war in the offensive department.

Have no escort type ships with 5 tac consoles to their 2 and now they even have a sci ship the can equip dual cannons. "sighs"

I don't think cryptic will give a ship with only two tac slots canons. I think it is against the rules of ships.
Look at the corsair. You can even see canons on it but alas and alac, beams.

I don't really think it would happen. I do think releasing as a retrofit or even a fleet ship would be a good idea though. It would require a minimum of work (like all the fleet ships).

And lets face it, the Gorn will never get a combat oriented ship. Hell will freeze over 6 feet thick before we see an escort or battle cruiser. I've already decided that I'm not spending another real dime in the C-store until the KDF gets a new ship in the store. I don't care if a retrofit of an existing design.

I don't know, it would be cool if it were a mirror of the Vesta...even if it didn't have the hanger.
