# 1 Fleet Ships and PvP
11-15-2012, 07:30 AM
Just out of curiosity, before you left, or now during season 7, how many of you actually fly fleet ships. The 2000Zen per character is a total bummer. but outside of KDf cruiser i hardly see any fleet ships in pvp, mostly lockbox.

I m just not interested in any of the fleet ships (bare the Noobula, which is just the noobula) but cannot justify throwing money in cryptics direction for it. so all my pvp toons fly either S5 ships, or lockbox ships (thx again for the presents).

What about you, anybody flying a fleet ship, which one and why?

Although I own Galor and could fly that, I mainly fly fleet nebula (because it is noobula) and I own most fleet retrofits, nova/saber/cheyene. Just because I like TNG era and I like to change ships frequently. I will also purchase (1 module) for akira/prometheus and dread, when available for me.

I guess I fly them only because of Style points, and because Star Trek = Starfleet for me.

I will, as soon as the Fleet Regent is available to me. Not right now, though, obviously.

Same goes for the Fleet Vo'Quv, but that is even more obviously a long-term plan.

I own the Fleet Somraw Raptor and find it very nice.
It has all the charatceristics that the original Qin raptor should have had in the begining.

My tac is in a Florcha because it's the best KDF escort. I was thinking about a Fleet K'tinga because I want a good A2Bx2 build, but now I'm in love with my McSteamy fed side. Seriously, this thing is a $10 fed fleet ship account-wide.

I fly the Fleet MVAE sometimes because she's by far my most favorite and byooteeful ship, but I know that she struggles without a team.

I can't really recommend any of the Fleet boats unless you're a hardcore fan of a given ship, the improvements are just too minor.

I flew the FDSSV fairly exclusively for a while (before I gots a wells). The 5th sci console slot really makes a difference. However, the 15 base turn rate of the wells makes it a far more attractive option.

I've been on the fence about buying one for a couple months, 2k zen for a toon unlock is COMPLETELY unreasonable. I'm just banking my zen and flying the stock Qin on both my KDF toons.

I was tempted to play lockbox lottery for a bugship, but the droprate stats of the Wells cured me of that sickness.

You're gonna upgrade my Chel Grett for FREE but charge me $30 to upgrade my Kamarag ?

Mirror Qin is a fantastic option that costs less than 1 mil EC and comes with the lovely layout of the old Fleet Escort (Patrol Escort), or the bug for that matter. It's pretty much my go-to 'scort if I'm not in much of a birdie mood.

I fly the Fleet Somraw and Fleet Scourge in PvP and both are nice ships. Both are solid improvements over the Qin in most areas, a few key ones being:
- Better Turn (Somraw: 16, Scourge: 17) without the broken pivot
- Better Boff layout (Somraw: Ens Eng, Scourge: Ens Sci)
- Better shields (yes even the Somraw, infact both ships have better than advertised shields, see the thread about shields on fleet versions of ships that were not originally T5 for more detalis)
- Extra Console

In short both finally provide good escort choices KDF side, though you could definitely argue that a large part of their upgrade value stems from how gimped the Qin is.

Also been trying out the Fleet Hoh'Sus and so far liking it, though I'm still figuring out exactly how I want to set it up. Its a BoP though, and what klink doesn't want to fly a BoP?
