I have so many ships It become a bog down - especially given that I spend 75% doffing.

Perhaps I will give the Fleet Excel a try too as it is only 1 ship module.

Is there any point in PvE in using the MVAM console??
Definitely try it out. Run something like this.

GW keeps mobs together. Focus on the weaker ships and watch as they destroy their friends with warpcore explosions.

Reason to split ship in PvE? Cuz its canon, just pretend you're the Doctor.

It's agile, it shield-tanks well for an escort, it has a lot of hull, it's boff slots are outstanding, it's console layout is very nice.

Using one as my PvE torp boat at the moment and I haven't had more fun in any Fed ship.

I have lots of Fed ships but can't really settle on one for my new Fed Tac
If you have tried out all those ships you listed on your tac, then there isn't too much advice that can be given. Except for some minor differences, cannon-mounting escorts in PvE are not going to play any different from each other or require a different playstyle.

You're always going to get a relatively fast-turning ship, which you have to point at the enemy. Weather that ship is going to have a tiny bit more hull, a tad better turn rate or a Lt. Sci instead of a Lt. Eng. is not going to change much.

The Fleet Patrol for example, will "feel" the same and require the same basic tactics and playstyle as the Defiant-R, Fleet Defiant, MVAP, Steamrunner, Armitage or Fleet Sabre.

At first the Breen ship was so so for me.

But it's growing on me.

I fly it in my Tac officer. Sturdy and puts out good DPS. I have a similar set up to the MVAM.

I'm a bit of a point-and-clicker myself (though not as bad as you by the sound of things ), but I do OK in a cannon escort. If you have a lifetime sub the Chimera's a pretty good ship. Lots of flexibility, works with beams and cannons, with slots you can use cool sci and eng powers with.

Assuming you don't have that a Vesta is also a good choice. An all-cannons setup on that can get you good DPS and Sci powers as well.

Since I don't have one yet I can't say anything about the Breen ship, but some folks are loving it.

So I took the Adv MVAM out today for the first time since my toon just hit lvl 50 - Granted it does not have the borg gear - just decent equipment - purple and blue M11

Took it into Infected elite - done that stupid think 1000 times so nothing new - managed not to Blow up even though I rushed to get in the 1 hour bonus event without even setting my power tray up.

Was kind of Meh. I will continue to play with it a bit.

Hows the Vesta for a tac - 27k hull seems kinda squishy.

Really hoping in Jan when the Andorian Ship comes out it is a Fast destroyer with a Good Boff layot and 10 consoles.
