I don't know if this is a problem with all raptors or just the Qin but, seriously, this ship's turn axis is annoyingly set way too far back. In my opinion, it's the only thing that prevents it from being the perfect strike ship.
I thought I was the only one who feels that there is something wrong with how awkwardly the Qin Raptor turns. Then I come here and find out that this issue has been brought up before (several times by the looks of this "archived" thread) and yet nothing has been done after more than a year.
Yeah, it's been brought up by myself and other forum regulars. And, in all honesty, it's an obvious problem to anyone who tries to fly raptors against Fed escorts or other KDF escort-level ships. Maybe the devs will deal with it at some point in the future. . .we'll see. In the meantime, I just won't be flying the Qin raptor or the fleet Raptors (assuming they have the same pivot problem). There's nothing it can do that can't be done BETTER by either the BoPs, the Guramba, or a escort-built Vorcha.

Agreed... though I still think it needs more love than just a pivot fix... particularly the underwhelming Fleet Qin.

It's been broken since Beta. But it's A klingon ship, so it will never get fixed.

Have you filed an in game bug report? I know that sounds like a stupid question, but if you file one, and then you have everyone who complains about it file one. they are going to end up with alot of bug tickets for an issue and THAT will get noticed alot more likely than a forum thread.
those tickets have to be read by someone, where this thread might be missed. So that should be the new motto. "if it's broken, report it with a bug report".
And everytime you see someone complaining about it, have them submit a ticket on it. Squeeky mouse gets eaten by the targ.
Our turn rate will be much slower if they share leech console with feds and drain effects are cancelled while feds maco shield will keep on boosting them +10power.
Just saying thats its more important to keep leech console on KDF only rather just fixing just one ship's turn rate or axis bug.
And it will be worst turn on all ships we fly not just raptor which already suffers from low turn rates if u ask me and thats the reason i prefer fleet scourge destroyer and i recommend it instead of a fleet raptor.
