Any chance of the dreadnought getting 4/4 weapon layout and a turn rate not normally associated with the Costa Concordia?

wonderful job here mostly, simply because these ship have no chance of rewriting pvp balance around themselves. these state are extreamly conservative, im shocked the heavy escort just has a 12 turn, but with its versatile station setup, strong hull and shields, and the hanger it is completely appropriate.

the mirror kdf carrier kinda stole the show imo, the LT being eng and just the commander sci is a great carrier setup, second only to the recluse.

the dreadnought carrier, well i just sorta feel sorry for it. with its movement stats, that station setup is down right horrible. it could never utilize that many tac stations effectively, and it would tank like crap with the rest of its stations.

the least you could do is give it the same station setup the escort has, that it could work with. besides the commander tactical, it needs no other tac stations, its to much of a liability to have around. seriously, no end game ship would be easier to blow up in pvp, be a bigger liability to have around, or be more ineffective with all the bulk. all that tactical, and none of that support capability in something that doesn't move like an escort is worthless. this is the biggest pve toy ever lol

for the sake of all the clueless that will pick this huge joke of a ship up, change the LT tac to a LT eng on the thing. that will go a long way toward keeping them alive in it, and it being semi usable in pvp


oh, and i also like the fighters. they arent a new fighter with some control ability, they are fighters that just deal damage, and with DEM they do it in a bit of a unique way

I can only assume this is not going to be how we see the size of this ship when playing? That would be about x3 the length of a Galaxy, with the same turn rate. :/

Agreed, it needs more survivability

Well I guess cryptic decided they don't want my money after all. I was seriously considering going after a heavy escort carrier but with that boff layout its off the table. To get me interested i would need either a lt cmdr tactical or atleast an ensign tac to go with the lt universal, in addition to the cmdr tac it already has. As it stands right now its no competition for my tacs jem hadar attack ship or even for my engineers breen ship, only thing i am a little interested in it for would be the console.

Carrier on the other hand does look good for a carrier, but I prefer ships that can turn around faster than an aircraft carrier so probably won't bother with that one either.

The Lobi Crystal Consortium has continued to salvage derelict Mirror Universe ships and sell them to the highest bidder. Three additional Mirror Universe ships are now available ? for the right price.
This would imply that the Mirror Universe ships are going to to be sold in the Lobi store, yet yesterday's blog states they'll be the Lock Box prize. So which is it?

Also, the Heavy Escort Carrier with its current stats is going to be a monster... No reason to fly the Armitage anymore IMO, even the Fleet variant.

Actually United States Carriers are swifter than you believe.

More survivability? No, just way more more turnrate. Otherwise the cmdr tac boff is a waste.

IMO with the current BOFF layout Drednought Carrier's surviavability is too low, perhaps you should consider layout such as:
Com Tac,
LTC Eng,
LTC Sci,
LT Uni.
Reason is that LT Tac is a bit of overkill, but two extra science abilities sould come in handy.
