The Bortasqu' is a pure crap, there's no mystery, if they lost money on it it's because it's a cruiser with very poor stats!
They should take a look at their metrics. Most of the KDF chars i see are tacs. Tacs, and more tacs, everywhere. Most of them flying tac ships (and a lot of carriers too). Maybe it's not "profitable enough" to release cruisers, but escorts should be ok. Because we need that %$^?* 5 tac consoles + cloak raptor, just to make the balance with the horrible glass cannon the fed just got. Or at least a super aggressive Ferasan Carrier with a cool turnrate.
