# 1 Kumari Speculation Thread.
02-16-2013, 07:18 PM
Honestly I was surprised there wasn't one yet.

as Dsthal had been asked.

"Q: (whamhammer1) If it is true that the game?s space combat engine cannot handle more than four weapons per side (front/rear)?

Dstahl: Let me stop you right there. We have a ship coming that breaks this rule, so it is not true."

this could mean one of two things.

1. more than 4 fore/aft weapon slots.

2. Broadside.

and with the statement "Kumari LINE of Andorian Escorts" it makes for an interesting topic, Will it be like the vesta, has 3 ships, each with a slightly different look and special item? will they be bundled like the vesta and oddy sets....we all know it will.

so go my fellow forumites, discuss and bicker!

All I know is this is yet another freakin' federation escort thats getting insanely overpowered crap and the KDF gets nothing. The last what? 5+ ships the KDF received were dumb copy/paste versions of the new federation ship.


The pathetic thing is, they could've made this ship and the broadside capability be a beta or delta quadrant ship that both sides could purchase through the cstore, each side with a unique console for their faction. A Talaxian ship... Akaali (from ST:E pre-industrial civ episode)...the list goes on and on. You know, a ship from a race that no one has ever seen before AND that could give the broadside ability some uniqueness.

But no. Andorian it had to be. Federation only. And an escort to add insult to injury.

Meh.

The KDF are gonna get a huge influx of new ships and possibly new ship types in May, this has been confirmed multiple times, the Andorian Warship has been long awaited since the arival of the vulcan ship.

dont get too upset because the KDF don't get a new ship right now, this is likely to be the final fed C-Store ship the feds get or hell any kind of ship for quite some time possibly a year, it would complete the pattern being set, Oddy-Cruiser, Vesta-Science vessel, Kumari-Escort, nothing else after that.


I am in full support of new KDF content, and I suspect they are going to be very glad in May, Hell I think it might even get me seriously back on my KDF General, though I do love my B'rel Refit.

Listening to Geko's Interview with Priority One, he mentioned this with the Broadsider, not the Escort.

To me, the Andorian Escort will be a take on the Steamrunner, but instead of 2 LT Engineering, it will be 2 LT Science.
NO to ARC!

Your kinda acting like this is all said and done, who said this is going to be the *broadsider*?

Kinda like people are going around expecting it to also be that ship that has 5 slots, they said ship but the Kumari is a group of ships...plural so when they said soon they might have not even meant the Kumari.

The ship is what a day and a half away unless they wait till after monday so lets just wait and see what happens.

No, it hasn't. All that's been confirmed for May is "everything's gonna be awesome, but we can't actually tell you anything about any of it".

Which is Cryptic speak for "please keep giving us money for the next three months while we release absolutely nothing".

My understanding was the end of Feb but nobody knows at this point. What's happening next week is we are getting information on it, it may also be released at that time.

I would guess on the 22nd if they want to release it on a patch day...but if not then sometime between then and the 28th.
