I've done a few Shuttle Events now, and I've been seeing people in here will full sizes ships. I at first thought it was a graphical glitch, until I saw the ship shooting. Pretty sure the ships needed for the shuttle events don't have 4+ weapon slots.

How are people bringing their full sized ships in? Is this even "legal"?

NOPE... and there was a patch that supposedly put a stop to this...
(there was also a previous thread that described how folks were doing it)

Apparently..., Not So Mcuh...

That's what I thought. It's normally only 1 person per group. Saw a Dreadnought thing in one today, as well as one of those Advanced Cruisers.

Like I said, at first I thought "hmm must be a glitch" then I see a volley of torpedoes followed by 3 or 4 different colored beams shooting from the ship, and was like "WTF"?

Do I even bother trying to report them? Or just ignore it? :/

You just reported it...

And since it's been moved from General Discussion to this forum..., apparently They are aware.

Yesterday the first one I ran had an Atrox, 2 Defiants, 1 MVAE, and me in a Peregrine. I just parked near the click to proceed stuff and let them get on with it.

People who do turn up in small craft are aborting/exiting when they see there are no full size ships in their grouping.

That's kinda silly. Doesn't bother me either way, I just want to get it finished and get my Data card.

LoL, I didn't even notice they moved it. But I meant like the individual person. But meh.

Now I know they are just being baddies. ^_^ so thanks.

Just did the vault shuttle event for the first time... well a few times in a row... and noticed the full sized ships to, notably one cruiser with saucer sep. Not that I'm complaining but I thought this was for shuttles. seems overkill for a ship like that to be there, a shuttle does plenty of damage in there if you set it up right. Personally I use 2 shuttle beam arrays and a tactical BO with beam overload and the best tac console for the type of beams I have equipped. I can usually one shot the BoPs in it from what I've seen, so why would I need my escort?

Have only done the vault shuttle event a few times since completed the Reman set - never used the same shuttle twice - used my Yellowstone the first time, Delta Flyer the second time and did it in my type-10 (Chaffee) yesterday.

Certainly, the second time I did it there were only myself and one other shuttle present - the rest were large ships.

Have to be honest thuogh - I've seen Defiant's on several occasions, and a Nova-class on one occasion. I don't actually have a problem with the much smaller classes of starships being there. Heck, the Defiant class is only marginally bigger than a runabout as it is!

I use the Danube... what can I say it was free. I think the problem with full sized ships being there is it gives them an unfair advantage over the shuttles, which are limited to 2 weapons at 25% of the power of a full sized ships. where a full sized cruiser beam boat with fire at will can simply take out all enemy ships in one shot. meaning no fun for the rest of us, it's even worse if that cruiser has saucer separation.

To be fair, I've done that in my Delta Flyer when equipped with the Point Defense Console (though it doesn't make quite as much of an impact on the Romulan BOP's).
