Tiered of flying the same old escorts and looking for a challenge? Try to build a cruiser that can spike and potentially replace an escort in team based PvP.

Whose up for the challenge?

I know for a fact it is very very doable. Go on, impress yourselves

i dont think a cruiser can spike, spike is'nt only an overload

cruisers don't have a well compensated tanking capability to balance with the lack of dps
and don't do it, dem might be nerfed

but try this in the fleet assault
tt1, bo2, apo1 or bo3
hy1 with omega torpedo
epts1 rsp dem2 dem3
et1 auxtosif1
he1 tss2

it might work with the thunderchild console to rip some shields, then, the omega torpedo and dem should do the rest, but i dont see a good spike build for a cruiser
it's not the ship or the build, it's the atitude

Stack your power
Use Dual beam banks
fire a serious torp launcher
AND deploy secondaries (turrets , fighters etc) you can do just as much damage as the average escort

Ferengi D'kora.... there is your cruiser/escort... also.. there is that one klingon cruiser with ltc and lt tac stations.
Say the word, it saves the world.

It is probably possible, but I don't see much use for it. A cruiser that can put out sustained damage through an aux2bat build or similar would be of more use I think.

i think it is harder to build a spike dmg fed cruiser than a support escort...

only 3 ships come in mind: D'kora, the galaxy X, dreadnought carrier

d'kora was explained already so i leave it at that

the galaxy X may have potential when coming out of cloak with DHC...but it will allways lack high ranking tac boff powers and maneuverability...so i would say forget that ship.
dreadnought carrier has potential to be bursty, but i think it will be hard to bring those weapons on target in PVP.

klingons have it better...fleet vorcha with great boff layout, cloak, DHC
Go pro or go home

pfft if you want a challenge fly an eng and be usefull.

Glad that TAc's in cruisers can spike, god forbid that Tacs would be useless in any given combo.
