Well people asked for "account-wide" options fo rother stuff. Stuff that is probably actually costing Cryptic more when all your characters have it... (Thinks like BO slots, Costume Slots, Ship Slots).

and all thoses things that customers asked to be "Account Wide" (BOFF slots AREN'T account wide by the way) are actually benficial to the player as an "Account Wide" purchase.

As an ONLY "Account Wide" option, new ships are overpriced for a feature that not all customers actually place any value on.

I, for one, would have bought the Excelsior if it had a "One Character Only" option at a reasonable price (as well as any other new ships that end up the C-Store exclusively).

# 115 Overview

Its not the poorest MMO, but there are some problems...

At first, a positiv remark: Walking on the ship - 1. release, just walking, cannot control anything, loading different areas - is possible. This feature don't make any sense at the time, but it's a good fundation for new contents.

1. (The old MMO system) Cryptic released STO in the WoW like form. Lot of skills, item grinding.

2. (Low development costs) All the nice ideas not implemented. Like control the ship inside, do the ST specific things, Romulans, Ferengi, maybe Borg and Cardasia ist not playable. As a replacement, Cryptic released starfleet command + worser elite force version in one game.

(German)

3. (Game not finished) You know.

4 (Big item shop, very much work , nice) Put the unfinished content in the item shop, cool idea! But there is a byeffect, where are the lot of player? Item shop for an MMO is one of the biggest fault!

5 (Poor content) You know, but no rescue, the game is gonna to a oneway game play.

6 (Klingons quick hack) Story line missing. Just PvP is fun.

7 (result, hardly enough player online) Maybe 10-40 online ? That's my feeling.

8 (high subscription costs in europe) 15 euro, for what ?

Well... Im going to disagree. Ships that I have used to destroy an excelsior at T5.

1- Galaxy Refit
2- Galaxy X
3- Intrepid Refit
4- Defiant Refit
5- Fleet Escort.
6- KDF Battle Cruiser

In fact I have not been killed by an Excelsior except when running challenges with my fleet for training.

It isnt OP. I tried using it and found it lacking unless I was an Engineer. It goes down really fast for a cruiser. The good pvper can drop it really fast. It isnt a threat like the Galaxy Refit or the Star Cruiser is in pvp. At least in the right hands.

Its not a game changing purchase. Its something that if you really like the Excelsior you can buy it.

Beam Overload 3 is over rated too. It failed to penetrate my Covariant Capx2 and the 35% shield capacity console science ship shields.

Its just a matter of adapting to the game play of the Excelsior.

You should understand that not every comment that isn't praising the game, is "disrespectful or complaining"
By the way, I have a right to post my opinion on game matters as long as it doesn't violate forum rules.
Seems like you should take your own advice and move on. NEXT.
So where can if find these game changing items in game?
So by your own admission, having not done any research or data collecting of your won, you have been lecturing others on not doing that. That really helps people take you seriously.
You make this too easy, and where did you see stated I have not done any research or data? oh wait, you didnt. I have this info gathered, just not sharing it here on this thread.
You have not been paying attention, as data I have been discussing other forums with those with their own data, you can look for them yourself since I dont accomodate lacadaciousness. Which is all you have done just in the above posts along with other posts.
You opinion is good, and its great you have one, but beyond that you have the ability to post what you think of the game on the forum, Cryptic has the right to change/alter/remove. You will find that under the Terms of Service, please familiarize yourself with it or not if you wish. In public you can spout what you like and dislike all you like, go for it. This isnt public, its a private forum owned by Cryptic.
Far as your personal opinon of me, your a big lad, you will survive and get over it
Now, if you want to look around at legitimate discussions where we are talking stats and info, you will find that data. Yes, you can do the leg work yourself, be good for you, builds character. This thread isnt about that , it was a slanderous knee jerk reaction not well thought out by the original poster, who while I can understand his frustration, went about it in a incorrect way presenting incorrect or no info of his claim at all. He has done this in several locations, in an attempt to just start crap. Much like yourself, which is cool if you wish to do that, just dont expect a friendly reception anymore as myself and seems several others are calling folks out on it.

Now this will be the last posting I do in this thread, or to you if you reply back, which if you do will be just as hillarous to read for some. I have moved to the forums where we are actually discussing the ships powers and abilities.

What? Excelsior is overpowered? Uhm... check your skills... they probably need a proper update to work with Season 2 :p

Actually the Excelsior feels like its the weakest from all Cruiser. I have more problems bringing an Emissary Class down then a sloppy Excelsior Class...

Heck I even soloed one in PvP last night, and I dont deal good damage with my ship as I am skilled for tackle and heal.

I agree fully that the excelsior is not OP.... I ran one for a a little while and came to the conclusion that the assault cruiser (sovereign) is so much more equipped to deal damage... with the excelsior I constantly would go in to cap and holds and hit around 1 million damage... after I got back in my assault cruiser I am usually around 1.5 mil and I also hit may all time record for dps in a cruiser... 1,998,365 made me so happy ! so the excelsior... not op'd I loved it while flying it but gimme my assault cruiser anyday! (tac in cruiser FTW)
