# 1 Battleship Can we have one??
06-25-2012, 01:00 PM
Im looking for a ship with MASSIVE bulk , many weapons , bags of power

something useable as a fleet flag ship

Maybe twice the size of an Oddy
something with REAL punch

(ideally able to strip the sky of escorts ,fighters and other chaff in a single button push)

Don't care how much it costs
Any chance?

Sounds stupidly game-breaking.

Is this a serious thread or are you trying to parody other similarly idiotic threads? I honestly can't tell.

Well if i can't have my cruisers left as they are and I MUST Tank i want to do it in something thirty times the power of the strongest escort

After all we seem to only want holocaust weapons right?
ships with no purpose but the destruction of entire worlds

...You're asking for something that would completely break the game. Silly and stupid request, given everyone in the game would demand to fly it and you end up with everyone running the same ship, removing customization from the game entirely.

But, you do already have a ship as close to this idea as you're ever going to get. The Galaxy/Venture X Dreadnought. Cloak, more defensive strength than most other cruisers aside from the Flagship Odyssey, ability to equip Cannons which other Cruisers cannot (though why anyone would, I've no idea), a very high crew compliment and tanking/healing ability, as well as the Spinal Lance - capable of dealing upwards 150,000 damage in 1 blast in PvP (proven against Defiant Retrofit for 71k in 1 of the 2 lance bursts, after taking the shields with it that would've equalled 75k+ per lance burst), untold higher amounts in PvE.

The issue stems that you want an "I Win" button. No game is going to give that to you. And frankly, you're a moron for even asking for it.

BINGO

now go tell the people demanding changes to the Galaxy R the same thing

or accept that an arms race has begun

All I ever wanted was to fly my cruisers on general duties

but if I MUST tank
then there needs to be a ship VASTLY more powerful than anything else to do it in

Imperial Star Destroyers for all \o/

That'll teach those pesky OP carriers.

Or more accurately, you just need to learn how to use the ship.

Before you state that you do, I already know you do not, or you wouldn't make such a request.

I've video after video of a cruiser deemed among the most worthless ships in PvP winning again and again and again. Several against worthy opponents, premades, etc.

I tank with this ship. I 1-shot enemies in seconds with this ship before they even realize I'm there at all. I heal with this ship.

I also fly an Escort. Vastly different role, but there isn't an Escort in the game that can do what my Galaxy-X can. Still fine ships.

Then there's the Science... and you don't need a degree to understand how powerful they are if used right.

I do not blame mechanics for a loss, I do not blame ship design for my inability to use it properly. I find out what I am doing wrong and my enemy is doing right, then I sit down and actually think, then test, then implement solutions.

To quote General Chang... "The lesson you must take with you into this trial is that victory is ALWAYS possible, no matter the circumstances. The fog of war may obscure it, but it is always there."

I have to admit, it does intrigue me to wonder just how well such a ship would work in the game.

A battleship who's size is so huge that it can barely obtain 1/4 impulse for maximum speed, and has a turning rate of 0.004 degrees per second. While it takes 7 minutes for the ship just to get near the gate in Cure Infection Elite, the damn thing will blow up in no time thanks to the weapons the ship has.

I see several "elites" have failed their save against sarcasm here

the whole point is the beg threads to RUIN the Galaxy R are getting your approval

this one is a Satire on those threads
GET IT?

I want the cruisers left as they are
100% as they are
not nerfed not buffed not painted yellow
not equipped with fluffy dice

oh and by the way my bog standard Galaxy (not the R)
can handle STF on normal
the R handles them on both settings

I find the X a little slow in the turn (yes ill fly any galaxy variant)

Next time I will remember that the intelligence test for escort captains has two questions

1 what is your name
2 what is todays date

get 50% or more and you pass right??

and yes thats a JOKE
