I read that and got all into it so you could sell me a Jem'Hadar Attack Ship at the end?

Seriously?

I've never complained about C-Store tactics before, but...that just makes me sad.

I am likewise intrigued. My biggest questions are:
  1. Is this a C-store ship or something you earn in game?
  2. Is it just for the upcoming FE?
  3. When is this available? Soon (as in Dec) or when the FE comes out next year?
  4. Does this mean more non-Federation/Klingon ships will become available (Cardassion, Romulan, etc)?

The cynic in me wants to say, "But haven't you heard? You can now earn anything in the C-Store in the game! You just need time and dilithium!"

As true as that may be, it still leaves a bitter aftertaste. Oh, well.

I'm not sure what it means. I suspect it's a setup for the next FE, and the Purple Beetle Boat is going to be used in the FE.

Oh god here it comes, nerf nerf nerf it's so OP, oh this is not fair... GIVE IT UP!!!! This game needs to STOP nerfing everything that comes out, you people need to accept that this is a decent ship and be happy with it, I'm sick of everything decent coming out getting nerfed because people can't handle getting blown up. It's gonna happen, you're gonna get beaten at some point.

Don't change a thing about this ship Devs, I'm looking forward to taking this puppy for a spin...

In the DS9 episode "Sacrifice of Angels"... The Prophets cause the Dominion ships to vanish, saving Bajor, and those ships are never seen again... Until now, perhaps?
That was my thought too. I hope there's Cruisers and Science Vessels to be had as well.

Also with global cool downs..... the ship is going to be useless pretty fast if you load it up with Tac boffs. I think all of this complaining is kind almost over the top. I could probably still waste it with my fleet escort in head 2 head.

Its also possible they put it in the ship store and sell it for Delithium in the same way Silvers need to buy ships. Cryptic needs to start creating delithium cash sinks outside of crafting & the Doff system for delithium to keep its value. Putting in ships that cost Delithium for gold and silver players is a sure way to do that.

It also makes it seem like less of a cash grab by not putting it directly in the Cstore.

Nobody has said we can keep it at all. Guessing it is like the B'rel in Doomsday machine where we get to play with it for the missions.
thats what I was thinking but if that was the case why would the requirements be admiral/lt general? that would limit the FE to only the highest level characters...not the smartest thing to do to the only missions we've had in a year, almost immediately after going free to play...

so i'm thinking its used in the missions and kept as some kind of reward

Why is it every time we get something new, people start complaining? Good grief, just enjoy something new for a change. Less Q_Q moar pew pew.
they're not complaining. people have raised valid concerns if this is to be a ship that people can use outside of the FE. it is clearly overpowered if that is the case.

again, nobody is saying nerf anything. theres a difference between nerfing it and balancing it. as it is in that description, it outclasses any of the current T5 escorts and therefore is by definition, overpowered.

how can a jem hadar attack ship from the 24th century be better specced than 25th century ships? Since you said its the original ship and not an updated one.
