I’m sure that someone probably already brought this up in the past and I just missed it; however, the Carrier is currently the only vessel in game that does not get a skill boost from a lower Tiered vessel.
Maybe the Carrier does get a boost from something and I’m just missing it but I’m pretty sure that’s not the case.
I’m wondering if it would be possible to tie the Carrier into the commander and captain levels of the Cruiser class so that we can get the same benefits that all other vessel classes get for their lower tiered incarnations.
I know that what I proposing is not the best idea but tying the Carrier into a lower tiers vessel class is the easiest fix that I can think of.
In a perfect virtual world Cryptic would add a Destroyer/Carrier class vessel at the lower tiers that would skill into the current Carriers that we have now.
Anyone else have any ideas about how this no lower tier bonus for Carriers problem could be addressed?
I went over to tribble and cleaned up my skill point placement.
My build did not turn out has bad has I thought it would be.
I pulled all my extra points that really were not doing much for me and the only skill that took a real hit was Starship Energy Weapon Efficiency (boosts my Photoinc Fleet somehow) it went from 9 down to 4.
My Carreirs hull and Shields saw a nice boost after the respec
My hull and shlelds were 47720 and 12618 before the respec and after the respec they are 54353 and 13959 not to shabby.
I'm happy that my BOP and both my fighters retain there full skill bonus (whatever that may be since we can't see it anywhere) and the primary skills I use with my Carrier where not touched at all.
I am sure that the points from the cruisers and the heavy warships carry over from the lower tiers to the T5 ship. All you really have to do to check it out is to respec and spec again on tribble and see in system space if there is a difference......Yup, that's what I do when I am looking at build-changing.
