While playing, both in PVP and PVE, I started to wonder why some ships are allowed to have such high BASE values for each Power setting..
Like a Cruiser being able to have a 100 Weapon Power setting feels silly..
Or an Escort with 100 in Aux...
I could understand if the following were true (Just guesses, not really sure if it would work):
Escort Max BASE values:
Weapon Power: 100
Shield Power: 50
Cruiser Max BASE Values:
Weapon Power: 50
Shield power: 100
Science Max BASE Values:
Weapon Power 25
Shield Power 75
This would mean that before items, the highest you could set the sliders, or the highest each generic setting would be, would be determined by each ship. Of course I am just Guestimating values, or eyeballing possibilities on the Max when using the slider bar. It would put more stress on the items that actually increase these values.
This is just a suggestion. Not any way or form any hate or dislike of any ship type. Just something I was wondering about, and thought it might be a good Idea.
