Not in a carrier...

To clarify: I'm using advanced swarmers and a rather poorly geared Obelisk with the 2-piece set. However, each and every one of the Voth ships has at least one ability which can take out all 12 fighters within seconds.

Palisades: Photonic decoys with their countermeasures. Contrary to what I expected upon reading the dev blog, that stuff deals damage as well as disables your engines - and there is no ability I know of that can simultaneously heal 12 different ships.

Bastions: Tyken's Rift. Not even half as threatnening, usually fired at me. Still pretty dangerous, as it's mostly used before my swarmers can get to a safe distance from me by starting their attack runs. Also, aceton drones.

Bulwarks: These things, just like the Citadels, have more than 2 ways of shooting down all fighters nearly simultaneously. Gravity well, reflective immunity matrix (it's bound to take a few of them down, ESPECIALLY if they use beam overloads) and aceton mode.

Citadels: Replace aceton mode with aceton drones and double the effectiveness of the immunity matrix.

Oh, and did I mention they like FAW? That's also a problem, albeit slightly less significant than the others due to the fact that it doesn't instantly destroy all the fighters it affects.

Wasn't the OP making the same QQ rage post about the Crystalline Entity a month ago, where they basically showed that they had not read any of the info the game, the wiki, or the forums provide as to how to play?

Voth ships haven't changed since day 1. If anything they're even easier to kill because I hold my alphas until I circle around their invulnerable shield facing.

First of all, are you sure you're talking about the Voth NPCs?

guys stop complaining the voth are fine, yes they have tough shields and they take longer to kill, while playing storming the spire at elite difficulty i rarely heal my shields and when my shields are down i don't even care about them even if 3-4 ships are firing at me cause they do very small if any damage to my hull, you want a powerful enemy ? the borg with their torpedoes that can one hit ko someone and even then if you shoot the destructable ones you are fine. yes i am using a cruiser, the freebie star cruiser and it's tanky but why don't you use one too ?

With the exception of the torpedoes the Fortress throws at me, of course. The problem are the grav wells the Bulwark and Citadel love throwing out, and those even kill my Obelisk! you want a powerful enemy ? the borg with their torpedoes that can one hit ko someone and even then if you shoot the destructable ones you are fine. For comparison, the Borg you're referring to are in STFs. Which, if I'm not mistaken, are still supposed to be the hardest content in the game. Regular Borg fall apart far more easily than the Voth with much less risk to the player. yes i am using a cruiser, the freebie star cruiser and it's tanky but why don't you use one too ? I can't speak for everyone, but here are my reasons:

1. Some of my characters don't HAVE cruisers, and I have no C-Store cruisers.
2. Do you know how hard it's been to get some decent gear for a ship since S7 dumped the STF weapons? Without dumping tons of dilithium or trillions of EC, that is. Neither of which I have or will have in the foreseeable future.
3. Completely different gameplay. Before you ask why I don't use the Obelisk instead of a cruiser, I will refer you to my previous post on either this page or the one before it.
