# 1 Q&A for Ship QQn!!!
07-06-2012, 08:01 PM
Ok question 1 for cryptic. why do people buy or obtain a ship?

Answer: because they like the appearance.



---------------



Question 2: Does it really help giving one ship this Bridge officer layout, and the other ship another one?

Answer: No, it does not.


-------------


Question 3: Wouldn't all the whining about balance on all ships disappear if all ships of the same type (i.e. Escort) would all have the same base stats, and we would have a seperate skill tree with a certain amount of points to distribute them over the base stats?

Answer: Yes, Great idea. No more QQn, every1 can run the ship they want without doing any concessions.


-----------------

Question 4: Wouldn't all the whining about balance on all ships disappear if all ships in addition to the seperate base statistics skill tree have the option to move 1 or 2 consoles up or down (to Engi/Tac or Sci) to further tweak one's ship? And on top add at LEAST 1 ensign universal bridge officer station to all ships?


Answer: Yes, great idea. this will solve all the QQn and crap like that.


-----------------

Question 5: Would such a system be viable and could it be made possible?

Answer: Yes it could. All the basics are already in the game. We have a skill tree system, wouldnt be hard to implement a seperate one for ship base statistics. Etc etc etc.



-------------------

Question 6: Why isnt this being implemented, Cryptic knows the longer they wait with such a system, and when they keep this old, static, and middle aged/predefined system, the harder it is to revamp it.


Answer: Must be bad for their moneyz.

--------------------

Question 7: Do you want to stop the QQn?

Answer: Yes, Cryptic would really like to fill in their time with more precious stuff like revamping PvP and add more content, rather then to constantly having to adjust all the ships statistics and stuff.



---------------------

Question 8: Would both parties, both the company, and the customers be happy?

Answer: Yes, but this will never happen because Cryptic is known to make errors and failures and other bad decisions since launch.


---------------------


Question 9: Am I done?

Answer: .....

Answer: because they like the appearance or because they like the stats, boff layout, console layout, etc
Question 2: Does it really help giving one ship this Bridge officer layout, and the other ship another one?

Answer: Yes it does, since that divervifies ships and their capabilities.


Question 3: Wouldn't all the whining about balance on all ships disappear if all ships of the same type (i.e. Escort) would all have the same base stats, and we would have a seperate skill tree with a certain amount of points to distribute them over the base stats?

Answer: No because people wanted diversification in ship layouts, and so that is what they recieved.

Question 4: Wouldn't all the whining about balance on all ships disappear if all ships in addition to the seperate base statistics skill tree have the option to move 1 or 2 consoles up or down (to Engi/Tac or Sci) to further tweak one's ship? And on top add at LEAST 1 ensign universal bridge officer station to all ships?


Answer: See answer three.


Question 5: Would such a system be viable and could it be made possible?

Answer: Yes , because we already have a diversified system.


Question 6: Why isnt this being implemented, Cryptic knows the longer they wait with such a system, and when they keep this old, static, and middle aged/predefined system, the harder it is to revamp it.


Answer: It has already been implemented. *points at the ship charts*


Question 7: Do you want to stop the QQn?

Answer: Yes, Cryptic would really like to but saidly that will never happen because people will always want more than what is presented. ie "Why doesn't that cruiser have 4 Tac consoles and 2 Com tac slots like I WANTED"

Question 8: Would both parties, both the company, and the customers be happy?

Answer: Yes and No. As the saying goes, "you can't please everyone all the time"


Question 9: Am I done?

Answer: With this pointless I WANT thread, no. I will make more until I get what I WANT!
Fixed alot of that for ya.

I can't stand how my little fleet escort looks, especially with the borg crap on it.

It's like that because I want to do semi well at the game and I have little choice.

I grew up on TOS. I want to fly a cruiser in this game but we know that's not going to happen.

You have the option to turn the "borg crap visuals off" and are free to fly any of the dozen or so cruisers in the game.

My galaxy class should have 12 beam weapon slots like in the show and I want my photon torpedoes to fire more than once every couple of seconds like in the show and I want my sovereign to be able to rapid fire beams all around to hit cloaked ships like in the movie and I want my intrepid to be able to fire torpedoes while ablative armor is active like in the show and I want my Defiant to be impossible to hit like in the show and I want klingon ships to explode with one or two hits like in the show and I want my constitution to maneuver and fire while at warp like in the show and I want genesis devices on light cruisers like in the movie. Oh and I dont want other players to equip shields.... or weapons in pvp. I WANT I WIN BUTTON NOW! QQ

P.S. This is sarcasm. I hope it wasn't lost on everyone, and I hope I made my point.

I still blow up premades with the single most laughed at ship in all of PvP. There really isn't an excuse.

I still do think the game is Pay 2 Win, but not imbalanced. A good pilot can fly any ship and get away with it.

It would be nice to be able to change the cosmetics of your ship only, more so than what we have now.
