I figured all the tier 5 ships would be obsolete once tier 5.5 or 6.0 are introduced. That's a given.
well you sure belong in this bs thread. how would the current top of the line ships become obsolte. what, they gonna suck 9 NEW ships out of their thumbs that outperform ships like the sovereign ? doubtfull ....
new lvls arent needed either, they hardly have enough to keep you busy at the current cap, what r they gonna do with a new one .... im not dumping my Nebula either. they can invent new ships n new tiers if they want to. but nebula = my one and true love!
It should be entirely possible to cause ships to scale with level, they can already do so with the Delta Flier.
Mind you a Starship is more complex than a shuttlecraft, but it shouldn't be too hard to adjust the subnucleotide matrix.
All shuttles scale as far as I know. They did that because shuttles don't have Tiers, so they had to make them scale. As for the Tier 5 and Tier 5.5 ships, they will be top of the line until Tier 6 is added, which isn't until much later this year if I'm not mistaken. Even once there is a better tier, you will still be able to use them on alts between level 40-50, and if they add ship retrofitting system, something they're considering adding if I'm not mistaken, you'll be able to cntinue using them forever.
