I have seen whole topics dissapear just for speaking out against Cryptic. If they want people that will continually kiss their behind then just allow the largest fleets in the game access to the forums and nobody else.

Why is there such a need to be so tyrannical... why is there a need to suppress people's opinions on the state of the game and blatant favoritism that Cryptic have displayed over their own preferences in ships and weapons etc...
You must not play BSGO. Bigpoint's forums are so tightly censored it reminds me of some real countries. You can't even poke fun at them without having your thread removed and your account either suspended or threatened with a ban. It's quite sad and highly amusing.

It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.

Before F2P it wasn't as bad, not that you would think that from how much everyone complained. Those controversial days following the creation of the +1 ship category seem like a placid paradise now. But Mewi is right,its only going to get worse as time progresses. It would not surprise me if the Rom ships are more in line with the recent ship lineup than with the older ships.

For example, I expect the D'deridex to be a lot like the Breen Chel or the Dominion Dreadnought.

Why does that matter?

You over-complicate the situation by tracing the Zen all the way back to its original buyer. If I give a guy a $10 for a car wash and he uses that $10 to buy lunch, did I buy that lunch? Hell no, he bought that lunch with money he earned, that just happened to originate from me.

The DilEx is exactly the same. I exchange my time for a currency with a backed, set value, that I then spend on whatever I want. It doesn't matter who bought it before me. It's not P2W because I can spend $0 and get everything.

Seriously, saying it's P2W because I use currency someone else bought it like saying the government is guilty of buying drugs off the street because they printed the money to start with.

I'm not smoking anything. Zen only has value because Cryptic and PWE made it valuable. They can put as much as they want into that exchange for when they started it they would have to put in something to get it started. I would think that would be a simple concept to get.

Miracle Worker = Engineering Team

You are healing the hull by being Mister Scotty by leading the Engineering Team in repairs, naturally they will be busy.
Why cant someone rotate their shield frequency wile still using emergency power to their shields or transfer their shield strength or reversing their shield polarity? This is not the same as using 2 Attack Patterns at the same time. You can only use 1 Attack Pattern at same time not 2.

EPS is not the same. Yes your raising power levels but their are multiple ways to do so that don't prevent other ways.

Miracle Workers is a single person performing a Miracle and that person does not prevent a Engineering team at another location of the ship do their work.

Attack Pattern Alpha with another Attack Pattern makes no sense whatsoever wile all the others have a possibility of being done at the same time.

Don't nerf tactical ships.

But they could sure use a little more weapon slots in the forward area!

They also need DHCs to drain less, something on par with turrets.

I never liked the power drain mechanic for weapons anyway.

This is one of the most wonderfully insidious things about Hive Onslaught-- the spheres are more dangerous than the tactical cubes, and their constant use of tachyon beams makes a shield-repair boat vital to keeping a balanced party alive.
... that's not to say that I haven't seen a party of 4 escorts and a tac cruiser roflstomp 'em, but it was my tac-cruiser, which is a heal-boat in disguise. So take that as you will.
I admit that in Hive it is a good balance for sphere. Part of the escort issues with the "roflstomp" of spheres is either they need a bit more health or a bit more speed/maneuverability or maybe a bit more aggressive. In ISE people kill the gate then the the spawn sphere. The ones that pop out of the gate stop flying when the generator blows up until some one shoots one and agros them. Then they one by one fly into range and get shot down. Some in a broad siding pattern will fly out of range again. Usually it is easy to pick off in their single fire pattern.

Nope. They don't. So the entire system hinges on cash transactions. I wouldn't worry about people abandoning the system though, since Fleet projects get done much faster if people just buy up some zen, convert to DIL and viola, fleet progress.
