Is it just me, or does it seem like cryptic is ripping us off with c-store shps?
the dreadnought cruiser is rbably one of the top 3 in the store, but you cant use anything it comes with on any other ship.
the voyagers ablative generator only lasts for 15 seconds
quad phaser cannons from the sao paulo cant go on any other escort
multi-vector assult cant go on anything other than prmetheus
(granted, some of these abilities would require cryptic to to have to add many more graphics prperties to all the ships, like the multi-vector assult)
also, these ships are anywhere from $15-$25 if you buy c-points with money, and a heck of a lot more dilithium to exchange (one amount more to buy then to sell, really?)
on the other hand, some ships, like the thunderchild and bellephoron are better in the sense that they arnt super expansive and their consoles can be put anyhwere
not to discredit cryptic's ideas with these ships, i just wish that they would give us something that's actually worth the money were paying for it (especially if your a paying player)
but most importantly i think, is that you're not allowed to use most of these things (cloak, armor, etc) during combat when you need it most. so therefore, i for one am not buying any more c-store ships until i can get something that's worth my money
none of them are as god-like as they make it out to be
and i actually liked my old ship better than my dreadnought cruiser, go figure
I'm just saying that you claim the quads only fit the paulo and NO other escort which is untrue. The MVA console only works on the MVAE because thats how the ship works, would you like to attatch it to a science ship and break that into three too? Their not trasformers plus you CAN use the armor in a fight, thats the point, its a "holy **** i need to heal and rethink" console to keep you alive in a fight. So please re-ceck your "facts".
yes, but not on anything else. im just disapointed at the flexibility of everything.
Only escorts can use Dual Cannons with a exception, this is by design.
You are not getting Quads in a cruiser and its actually amusing your complain about you cannot mount then on anything but a escort when the Quad Cannons have their own issues as they are surpassed by other cannons at Mk XI.
If your complain is "my brought ship is not OP enough and it should be P2W" I dont think you find many sympathy around here, one thing is raising the issue Quad Cannons are not as effective as other weapons at higher levels and another is complaining you cannot bypass rules by brought items.
Oh and Ablative Armor just brings your energy weapons and shields offline, its a Turtle mode that does not disables your skills ... on a Science ship (that primary deals damage by science skills) or your Kinetic weapons (Torpedoes and Mines) so even if its not a panic mode, it can be well used if someone knows what they are doing.
