# 1 Most common captain type
11-17-2010, 07:59 AM
Hey folks, its been a while since I played and I've pretty much forgotten 90% of what I knew.

SO, in that respect, what is the current most played / common captain type?

Also, are there still a lot of people playing?

Thanks in advance.

More people playing all the time; it actually gets almost crowded on Saturdays when they release the Featured Episodes.

I don't think there is any really popular captain type, although engineers in cruisers might have a small edge in numbers.

Engineers in everything are about the most powerful captain type, so they're more numerous, followed closely by science captains. People still roll tacticals, but usually they're not the more experienced folks, those already had tacticals and they stubbornly stick to them, in the hopes they'll see a silver lining one of these days

Also, the number of people playing has been growing, you can tell by all the newbies and newbie questions you get to answer (if you're so inclined) - I could literally spend hours every day answering them.

Science is the deadliest imo engi is most survivable and tac is.....oh well.....meeeeh.....the one that can rush through PvE fastest.

It seems like 90% of the pugs I see (PVE or PVP) seem to be Tacticals in Cruisers, while Science officers in Escorts like myself seem rare.

.
If you choose a Klingon character , you will also do well as a tactical officer .
It takes time to learn how to be a good/deadly science oficer player -- some never master the skills and opt for a sci officer in a cruser(instead of a science ship) to compensate .

But , as many have stated , Engineer seems to be the call of the day . They survive the most in crusers , and for a lot of ppl , surviving is what counts ... , as pvp games at the last level are brutal .

Admittedly , I am also looking to do an Engineer char ... , just haven't decided if Kling or Fed yet .
