I miss the 'coming soon' calendar on the website

ps. battle cloak for Fleet Tactical Escort Retrofit one day?
And people say it's pointless to feature old ships, because there we go someone did not know about it....and Knowing is half the Battle


But i guess someone should tell coca cola to stop advertising coke.

I find that I ended up defaulting right back to my old standby Hegh'ta, even if the EBC is neater looking and has snazzy powers, the big beast just...works better. I can't explain why, either.

I agree with this. I recall the original STO website had some fun videos to showcase each and every Starfleet ship that the game started with. And then for each C-store ship that came thereafter.

Those were fun. I was reminded of this when I watched the showcase video from last week. That sweeping arc of the K'maj swinging around.

Thats not a reason thats a lame excuse. There should be a valid reason for the b'rel to still be sold in the cstore. I don't care about the fed ship, thats the fed player's problem.

When a cstore tier 5 ship becomes a fleet ship one should be able to transfer the bonus console to the fleet ship and have the ability ONLY if you bought the cstore version.

This is how it needs to be done. Adding the console to the cstore b'rel is neither hard to do nor unbalancing. But it will keep the cstore b'rel as a good buy option as well as keep the fleet b'rel as a great purchase option for both cstore version owners and non-cstore purchase owners.

The console I request makes the enhanced cloak shine. No cstore b'rel? you dont get that in the fleet b'rel but you get the enhanced cloak at least.

I think you misunderstand. The B'rel has no console on the c-store version so what you are proposing is to make the fleet one have to use a console to get to use it. As it stands right now the only difference in a C-Store B'rel and a Fleet B'rel is the hull, shields, and console bonus. What the person you quoted was stating is that both the excelsior and the b'rel have those extra module because of the bonus that they come with *WITHOUT* needing a console.

I would say though if shields or shield tanking wasn't an issue in this game the B'rel would be nice to use all the time for pve or pvp but it really only shines in pvp is when you have a group who focus targets and fires thousands of torpedoes hoping you can get some of them to pass through the shields with the omega tier 4 passive.

What it really needs is something to help it with shield penetration instead of a 5% chance out of thousands of torps. I would say let it be a special photon for the KDF in the D-store so you could run a setup where you could run a cannon mode when fully decloaked and also in a build setup a bomber. Which I've been trying to get Cryptic to do for years but they always take the word of the troll over an actual KDF player when it comes to this ship.

Pretty much what I would recommend Cryptic doing is until this ship some day becomes viable... make it a tier 1 shipyard ship even though its not even worth that in its present condition when it comes to using the special cloak that costs an extra module.

I own this ship and absolutely love it as a torpedo boat especially with attack plan Alpha. It has been replaced temporarily for the breen ship as I wanted something with higher armour and shields for STF's.

As for the Fleet module I believe there should be more of a incentive for people who already have this ship like maybe a console to increase damage or maybe fix the cloaking bug to stop decloaking when someone speaks because quite frankly. There was never complete silence on a cloaked ship in any episode so since that is canon we should be able to speak to the bridge crew without them hitting the decloak button
