Sure they've stumbled before -- but this time they stepped on a landmine. Dan should have had someone else post on his behalf. Someone much more diplomatic.

We've known since the start of season 6 that fleets under 25 were going to have it very very very hard now I understand why they took out the FM form the foundry and I agree should have been put somewhere else, but small fleets no matter what were going to have it bad compared to big fleets.

See you during the 4th anniversary


Now back to that Sexy sexy ship.

I wont be buying any ships until the FM issue gets resolved. I've been wanting the kumari since it was to come out in December but I'm not spending any money till the issue is addressed and I don't mean three months from now.

I'm not sure what the big fuss over the removal is. Were that many people using it for fleet marks? You know there's plenty of easier, quicker ways?

I'm currently part of a small fleet. By small, I mean we have 2 active members, and the other person isn't really all that active. I haven't been doing Foundry missions at all lately, and by the time our fleet projects actually get the dilithium needed to progress, I've got more than enough fleet marks purely from doffing. I have about 10,000 fleet marks on each character at this point with something like 4 million fleet credits earned so far between all my characters.

On topic, that looks like a really sleek ship, and I love it for the looks. I just hope the stats and gameplay will be something that fits my preferred playstyle.

I'm curious to know whether or not you've maxed out your doff tiers. How many purples and blues do you have? Don't you think that people who don't have it maxed out yet won't be criting as much as you, so they won't be getting as many marks?

All the tiers are maxed, and yes, I have a lot of purple doffs now, so it's true not everyone will be getting quite as much as I am.

That said, you'll find that if you ask around in the Academy or Duty Officer forums that most people agree it's generally fairly easy to get 10k CXP in a day or two if you pick the correct assignments to go for and slot as well as you are able to maximize your crit chances.

So is this the ship that breaks the no more than 4 forward or aft weapon slots Mr. Stahl referenced in the latest Ask Cryptic. If this has more than 4 forward weapons on an escort we'll be seeing some interesting threads on the forums.

There's no confirmation of this, but personally, that'd be my guess. I'm predicting 5 fore, 2 aft weapon slots.

Not that easy if you?re new to the game and just have common quality Doffs.

i do wish people would stop assuming that their highly developed characters are the standard by which all other things should be judged.

For myself, i have one toon getting on for your status, and I do convert CXP into FM as often as I can. However, in my fleet I am the exception.

These changes are hitting small fleets and new players disproportionately hard.

This kind of callous disregard for a broad section of the player base will have an impact on z-store sales, including this nice new ship.

That would be my guess also since it's an escort if this was the ship Mr. Stahl was talking about.

The way its been going for power creep on escorts I expect this to be the first T6 ship:

40k hull
17 turn
1.2 shield mod
5 forward weapon slots
4 aft weapons
11 consoles (5 Tac, 3, sci, 3 eng)
20+ power to weapons

Andorian Berserker Console - doubles flight speed and Dmg for 15 seconds

That will allow her to put out a 50k DPS alpha strike

Escort tac captains will be happy!
