That would make too much sense. The game is broken. Almost nothing works properly, and they just keep releasing more C-Store crap to the unenlightened masses of Care-Bears. We've been complaining about pet-spam in PvP for as long as I can remember, they keep adding more (many thru consoles or devices. Who needs hangars?). We keep asking for powers to be fixed. They keep adding more to break, via consoles, again.
Now it's a Fed carrier, we all knew it was coming. I was in denial, I think, hoping there was still a chance it would just go away. Feds shouldn't have a carrier. No such luck, here it is.
At least most of the available offensive sci powers do absolutely nothing, and the remaining ones require a decent-turn rate to use well.
"here's this great new sci ship!"
Two weeks later "Sir we've only sold 100 of these.... "
"What do you mean science is lolz? what does 'lolz' mean?"
I am almost willing to bet cpoints that we get devs in our sci threads asking what they can do to improve scis once these things fail to sell like hot cakes.
I never pictured myself as an old man on a porch, so enjoy... I think I will end up as an old man sitting on driftwood on an isolated beach giving sage advice.
I think I need to log onto vent for a while. The people are the only thing this game has left to offer me, and they deserve better than me just disappearing.
Yeah, your fellow Pandas miss you!
I think I'll be the science captain who retires to an isolated cottage in the woods and tells tales to passing travelers of the days when science ships were worth running. Now the only place that sci captains can really find a home is in a bloody cruiser... Panda.
