Hi to all the pvp fleets, I wanted to hear what you thought about the Cat Carriers, if the pvp community frowned upon them or dont mind with the spam they can produce. We are just deciding if we should use them or stay clear to stop any unwanted hate tells.

Thanks all and hope your well

ps: If this has been covered all ready please attach the link to the post as could not see it, I was away for the last few weeks getting married.

IMO, as long as people keep putting Sci captains in them, I don't care about them because they are easy to kill.

Seriously, they're no worse than KDF carriers. The pets are interesting in their own way (granted I haven't gone up against them in any ship that suffers to much from defense penalties, ie: only in a cruiser so far)

The biggest reason that I can see for them being frowned upon is simply the spam generation. FvF was the last refuge for people who hated pet spam, and that is gone now. Pet spam makes games unfun, but it's here to stay. Therefore, I don't see any way that they can be justifiably frowned upon.

Because of Fed Carriers I want to quit pvp altogether. The only thing I liked was FvF no carrier spam (still hate ams though).

Maybe itís time...it might be a good thing though.

Edit- Tex, I think you made this post because of my feeling of this ship and our pm's. Look, it's a game and meant to be fun. When it stops being fun and becomes a chore then itís time to go or find another aspect of the game to explore.

This game friggin sucks now. PVP was the only fun thing after I played all the PvE content and if Klingons had too many carriers going there was FvF. Now the choices are fight Fed NPCs or Klink NPCs, even if the spam is one the same team there's still the latency, the mantra I've been hearing in the PvP zones since yesterday is "OMG laggy", my comp/connection does ok but it still suffers.

Just went through a couple matches today, it wasn't fun at all.

the extra lag blows, especially on the already laggy solar wind map, my biggest prob is that it seems a team with 3 or more carriers is unstopable, an escort blows up faster than u can click any heal ability, 3 carriers worth of pets takes damage so fast it seems like i just got 1 shotted, even in my ody i cant heal fast enough, although i last way longer

cheers for the feedback, this is generally what ive been hearing in the diff chats, and tend to agree to some extent. As a fleet if we go premade we are gonna stick to one carrier only per premade team, I think this is fair, 2 or more can be a handfull especially in the solar wind map with lag. Im gonna pass that rule tommorrow in the fleet.

This is just what we the 110th are gonna do if we go premade, if other fleets want to field 2 or more than thats their buisness. We will not shout spam, but see it as a challemge. Its put in the game so if people want to use it then so be it.

From the last 2 days in pvp I must say how ever I have only come across a very few good carrier builds, most tend to be very squishy, I think it will settle down once the hype has gone and players go back to what they know best.

Thanks All

Some PVP'ers might send a few negative PM's to you if they were trying to cut through your spam, but a self-respecting PVP fleet is just going to kill you and say GG after

I hate them.

Especially with the free chroniton torps, phaser procs and extra tractor beams.

Just wait till we get a flight deck doff. No One will be happy then.

It's also yet more spam. If I want fighter spam, I'll go play a game designed for it and able to handle it. See you in Sins.

It's not a matter of if it's OP or not (the above mentioned pets are mind you) it's a matter of it making the game horribly unfun. If I want to pve I'll go faceroll the keyboard in a story mission somewhere.
