Wait... we will spam cheese cause everyone else does...

That is a change to the TSI modus operandi... used to be you spammed the cheese so Cryptic would correct it.

I guess the fact that even the people that do PvP now don't know who the heck TSI is means you had to find a new way to justify. All good... I would suggest you mine spam in your carriers no one would suspect that. lmao

So we would like to announce some new playstyle changes in our fleet to the community, and what we intend to do in hope of some favourable changes:

1. Tricobalt mines. We are sick and tired of being the victim of this, so we will now return the favour tenfold. Tricobalt mines with dispersal patterns will now be used more liberally.

2. Science ships. We have deemed after some disusscion that science ships and its science abilties is mostly redundant, easy to counter, easy to resist and the fact key science abilites can be used on other ships, that we will (mostly) not be using them any longer until Cryptic does some significant changes to science skills and its resistance. The Vesta was a welcome change, but most of us know its really an escort in science disguise, but a far weaker version.

3. Cruiser + Escorts = True love. Yes, tank and spank is the new deal. Stronger hull, can carry all the nessecary skills to survive, lots of dps, and not as paper thin and gimmicky as a science ship. But you say that science has the best shields. Yes shields are nice, but shields are easy to strip away by sheer dps alone, or even disables. Besides, a premade team knows that all what is needed is just to keep shields up and running that shield ammount really doesnt matter.

4. No, we will not use cheesy skills like AMS and that sorts. We are still above that and if we do use it, its likely a single "cheap" console, and not a whole loadout like many others use.


With this announcement we want to state an example to the developers on what and how we feel and think the game is going wrong and going good. Cya in space!
Great jokes here seeing how TSI members have used AMS, Jump, point defense, theta, tachyon mines and that just what I have witnessed.

Maybe these 2 quotes will shed some light so people dont go overboard yet again with their passive aggresive insults.

Your right that was pretty passive aggressive of me. I intended to flat out insult you. I shall try harder.

Hmm.. No offense.. but I don't think TSI has the same "Street Cred" in PVP that it used to..

Doesn't help that more then half of TSI it seems has been off playing other products out there. (Not that I blaim them mind you!)

So go ahead, field your Escort/Cruiser Pug stomp team. Pew Pew and have fun. If that's what it takes.

Meanwhile I'll enjoy my Aux 2 Bat Orb that makes it eaiser for Escorts to Pew Pew Healers and enemy Escorts.
You think that your beta test was bad?

You doing this on purpose in order to force everyone to use tric mines plus DB and thereby make the game completely not fun while we all have one hit kills?

By whom? Tricobalts are a bad idea because they aren't reliable enough. (And the whole stun and multiple hits from dispersal patterns thing is no fun either.) Who in their right mind would sacrifice a high-level tac slot on an escort for a dispersal pattern (and two weapon slots for the mines themselves) that will be easily countered by FAW and/or TBR?

How about you just post full details on all possible future premade setups that I have tossed around?




Why is it that someone always has to go to the forums and make completely stupid "from now on TSI will only run spam crap" announcements? I have no intention of doing anything like that - not when Zorena announced it years ago and not now. And I hope that I'm not the only one in the fleet who thinks that way.
