Flying straight up or down... is that so hard?
I did PvP though i find it too mainstream, i did enjoy it abit... untill i had someone sitting right above me with phasers blasting me slowly to bits, because it was impossible to bring my front mounted cannons on target. why? bacause you can't face straight up or straight down... whats the point of cannons then?
Cryptic realy needs to fix that problem... IMHO
Its by design. Its not canon movement for the majority of ships.
That's a huge Crock, dragged out as a pathetic excuse for the limitations of the game engine.
Not canon movement? How can you say that? Just because you thing that you see a ship in a TV series always travelling in one plane is nothing more than a relationship between the camera and the ship. How do you know which direction it is travelling with no reference?
Not canon is an insult of an excuse. The fact is the game engine is designed for a 3d world with a ground plane and it's not capable of handling models rotating fully because they are gimbal locked.
