# 1 BoP time to an upgrade?
06-13-2012, 08:44 AM
So Feds have nearly every BoP configuration on any flavor escort they want. With better shields, hull, weaponry, and more bite to that weaponry due to 4 tac consoles.

I really do feel like the BoP is the AGM Zero of STO. Very good at the start, it had its spot in the limelight for sure. Now we've got AEs that can mvam to bop turn rates while maintaining superior firepower and protection, we've got the fleet escort carrier which I fully intend to try out just because of warp poo. Defiants are superior turning raptors.

It's the age of P-51 mustangs, corsairs, and bearcats vs. the little old zero.

Yes, the BoP is still good, and I still fly it, even a Brel because it's the iconic bird.

I will still fly it even against coordinated teams.

How about an added Ens slot to both heavy bop and brel? Would that be too much to ask? What are your thoughts on it?

An upgrade to existing ships is unlikely. The best hope is a T5+ C-store version with its own special console.

I guess the only thing the bop can still do is psw from cloak.. but that's been the case for a while.

But I guess that bops needing some love is not the biggest problem with pvp right now.

Does it make sense for a bop to launch pets... that they could sell on top of the ship ?

No...

Ok then forget it .

console? that's so last month!

The T5 will be a full carrier-BoP! Boff layout like the Vo'quv, turnrate like the B'rel, and launces enhanced siphon drones!

You're thinking way too small, and frankly I'm disappointed in you.

It should launch Kar'fis.
