So after collecting the 1000 photos I needed to get this ship I take it out for a spin with the best of the best that I have (antiproton cannons, the Maco MKXII set, tricobalt device (antiborg) MK XII Rapid Reload Transphasic Torpedoes MK XI, Neutronium Plating X 3 granting 50% resistance against both kinetic and energy weapon damage, etc etc) I go into a standard STF with my stations set, play like I normally would and I die in the first five seconds without reason. One moment I'm at full health the second I'm down to 3% and I've been hit once. Power distribution dropped. In the same STF I died 8 times with this ship where with the Vesta or even the mirror universe Recon-Science ship I'd maybe die once normally.

This ship is supposed to be on par with the Dreadnaught for the most part according to the website yet it is HORRIBLY underpowered. I thought the Vesta was bad and no where near what they said it was but this ship is utter uter Shista.

I'm not happy right now that they wasted my time and my resources for such a poorly designed "warship". Even the Galor warship lasts longer than this thing and it's hull is 3000 points lower than the Ghet warship.

And now that I've been reading about the kinetic 360 weapon I'm debating quitting this game all over again. The developers are purposefully under powering weapons and ships for supposed game balance which is truly stupid.

Its a Breen ship

its weaker than Romulan and indeed borg vessels

also consider that your crew are working unfamiliar controls in Long underwear

Could you elaborate on how, technically, it is underpowered?

havent tested in an STF yet but this thing seemed to kill things as quick on balanced power with my Tac Gorn than was previously seen in the kar'fi at full power to weapons. personally i am quite happy with it. It will now spend all its time where it is supposed to be - Orrelius block killing Breen and Defari all day long.

User error.

What do you normally fly? The Breen ship is basically an extra-agile, tac oriented battlecruiser.

Okay first off if you going to complain about how bad a ship is please go into more details try using this format

Explain your goal
For weapons
Aft weapons
Shd
Deflector
Shields
All cons
Devices
BoFF Ability
And equipped doFFs
Then rage
Then ask how to fix it or make better

Okay now that I explained how you can get better feed back let me add my point to it for what you did post.

Your running to many types of weapons TCD's, transphasics, and AP DHC. That septet sections of a BoFF you need to spread out on a ship with set spots for tac. Next what heals did you have on at the time where you rotating buffs the right way. How where you flying the ship like (an escort or a cruser) which stf where you in and did you have the gate or tac cube aggroed. There are a lot of different things that might have lead to your death here.

Something is obviously wrong somewhere, ive been in it on my KDF and the thing is a monster of a ship in ESTFs, im not the only one who thinks so as other people have found it an excellent ship for them also.

Its quick, agile, over gunned, great bridge slots and consoles and i am loving it

So, you tried to fly a "cruiser-ish" escort like a science ship.
I can see how that might take some getting used to, so take it from an escort-flying tac: Yes, we get blown up a lot more than other ship archetypes.

Me, I like the Breen ship. Tested it out today and was quite satisfied with killspeed and survivability. Then, after the fifth or so mission, I noticed I had been flying without a powersetting the whole time.
So yeah, definitely packs a punch.

definitely need more info - Maco X12 set - standard stf - die in the first 5 seconds

there is only 1 way this could happen - you flew right up to the cube and got hit point blank with a HY plasma torp from the cube.
