It's a cruiser that gives up part of it's tankness for firepower... it means it will die quicker, before it has a chance to use that firepower Isn't that how it works?

And a console that can only be equipped on this ship (or other Breen ships), has a mins-long cooldown we can assume, causes general power drain with chance to take one offline, is Targetable (meaning you can shoot it down), and will probably have a global cooldown with the Breen set's 3-piece ability, and other power drain abilities...

yeah, that's game-breaking imo

dont forget that the winter event has a pvp system...snowballs pvp
Just because you don't play PvP doesn't mean other people do. Like for example: People with the gametag Mewi Just saying. Cryptic has gotten 80 times worse these last few months with game balance, they keep releasing fluff doff specializations, and skill "improvements" just recently they patched a skill that could kill any player in under 10 seconds with repulsers, supposedly cutting beam also has a similar effect. GG Cryptic, the geniuses of game scripting.

Oh look it is trek21 defending cryptic again, big surprise there.

Oh, and borticus posted these stats about the Energy console from this Breen ship:http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...11#post6945811

And mewi, when Cryptic does something right by this forum's standards (like the Winter Event blog yesterday), you were nowhere to be seen So I guess we're just on completely opposite sides

Yesh Cryptic thank you for the over powered eyecandy! Keep doing more of the same! It is "free" Im so happy, im so sorry for complaining all of the times you lied to me! I forgive you for the endless dilithium gouge, that you will probably also impose on this "free" ship! But that is okay! You gave me overpowered eyecandy, so I forgive you, no matter how many more bad ideas will be conceived in the future, as long as I get my overpowered Eyecandy for "free." Yay ^.^

You know you are a smart girl; I'm just surprised you haven't learned that to work for PvP balance in a mainly-PvE game is... well, that it's not exactly rewarding, or likely

And there are plenty of games with much better PvP modes for you.

a vet ship with a sci LTC sloted looks more dangerous to me. down on hitpoints a tad but with a more useful, minmaxable station setup. a vet ship with a LTC eng is stupidly more dangerous.

you know im usually 1 of the first to screech and howl about something being op, but i just don't see it here. was it you that insisted the fleet patrol was on par with the bug ship? im still trying to figure that one out.

the truly OP ships are the ships that do 1 thing well, that are further buffed to do that 1 thing well even more. the bug ship and recluse being the best at dilivering damage and healing damage respectivly, and the most OP in their field.

this ship looses what makes an escort do its thing well, and lets it do other things pretty good in exchange. in the end your left with something closer to mediocre then op. i see this as a fun ship that will fit my preferences well, a ship that can do most of everything, but not be a standout at any one thing. its not that at all. the 10 consoles, 8 weapons, its sorta needs that to be competitive really.

i mean, this ship cant even use 2 AtB. if it could, like the tac LT was a 2nd eng LT, then HOLY CRAP ITS OP, with tech doffs.

I can't decide whether I want this ship or not.

I mean it's obviously a competent vessel, it looks fantastic and it's free. Bit of a grind involved but from what I've seen on other threads this event doesn't seem too bad.

My main issue is...can this ship play nice with Engineers? The grind may be simple but it would be time wasted if it turns out to be useless.
