Ahh!

Well the way things have been going lately you're more likely to get it added to the C-Store than have it nerfed.

faq suggested it will be unavailable on cstore for an "unknown amount of time" and that it may crop up next year.

although "unknown" must mean...when the moneymen tell them to release it....is suspect summer

Turn rate of 20, versus defiant 17, other escorts and raptor at 15. Hegh'ta BOPs are 21, and B'rel is 23 I believe.
Base 33000 hull versus 30000 hull for escorts, 33000 for raptor (but raptors have weaker shields than escorts), Hegh'ta has 24000, B'rel has 21000.
4 engineering console slots, 4 tactical slots, 1 science slot, the absolute best layout an escort could ask for, assuming 4 is a maximum, because science consoles are by far the least valuable, especially for an escort.
2 Universal Boffs, something no other full escort has.

It is clearly the best escort in the game.

They had to make it over powered in order to sucker so many of us into dumping buckets of money in their laps. This is so much better (for them) than just charging a flat rate for a ship. It's very disappointing to see just how little balance matters when there is money to be made.

Yeah, I'm not falling for that. I got 5 holiday gift receipts on all of my toons because I had too much currency so maybe one of those receipts will be lucky but its sounds like a long shot.

People that are doing that are actually encouraging those kind of things ironically. If Cryptic sees that people dump their money on something, more stuff like that will come.

Yep, that's the truth for sure. The best way to complain about P2W scenarios is not to P2W.

You know, I was really looking forward to this ship when they hyped it right before this event implying it was easily obtainable) but theres no way in hell I will ever stand a chance in hell of getting it. The algorythms they use for this kind of random drop make it near impossible so only about 200 ppl will end up getting this ship.

Thanks cryptic...merry christmas....
