Were these things seriously a problem? Really? An experienced level 50 player should be able to pop a D'deridex like a balloon.
And they do pop that easily. However, the problem did not lie with the D'deridex being hard to kill. It lied with the fact that it was essentially a summonable ship, including all the things it would use over and over. Stuff like it's Torp HY, Photonic Shockwave, etc...most important though:
VM is wicked in PvP because it can force people to use Engineering Team on someone, or possibly shut down a whole team in some manner if the right DOFFs proc. So to summon a ship that can use that freely regardless of what your class and ship is, was powerful.
Then times it by 5, for a whole team doing it, especially at the get-go of a match.
Hey guys, I created that thread "moaning about the romulan ship"
And all I have to say to you guys is this...
LEARN TO FRACKING READ.
No one in the pvp community asked for this to happen to romulan ship, all the pvp community asked for was for the ship to not be useable in pvp. Guess what, cryptic then basically told us too bad, we're gonna change it instead.
This is not the pvp communities fault and I for one am getting sick and tired of the pvp community being blamed for crap it had nothing to do with.
I say good day to you sir's.
