Actually a Battle Cloak with any serious amount of Hull will essentially amount to a Get Out of Jail Free card. As soon as your shield start to buckle you can Brace for Impact and cloak with that level of Hull and nothing short of sustained focus fire from a group of enemies is liable to pop you... unlike with a BoP, which is why a Battle Cloak works there.

The Destroyer has about 10,000 more Hull than a Fleet Hoh'SuS or about 29% more Hull. And it has nearly 20,000 more than a Fleet Ning'tao... or about 57%.

if this becomes a fleet ship (but without the vet console) with a 10th console slot and the ability to put the vet console in it, that would be really acceptable.

*laughs hard* That's the most ridiculous thing I've heard since I joined these forums

I may defend Cryptic, but name one proof that supports the idea that I work for them.

Sorry, but no: I don't work for Cryptic. I simply haven't been stabbed in the back once since I joined this game So I have had no wrongs done to me, and no reason to say anything bad about them... that is all.

We paid 300 dollars for a lifetime subscription for a game. The ship is a pleasant bonus, and seeing as how it's only been made detailed for a few hours it's clear that none of us bought our subs for the ship.

Although I WILL be flying it, it looks great.

The battle cloak is a laugh, in terms of balance here. Ignoring that for a second, lets discuss the balance difference between these two ships as if there were no other ships in the game. So Equal Pilots, KDF has battle cloak, and FED has .067 more shield modifier, who do you think will win? Federation ship should get more, if you insist on giving KDF ship a battle cloak.

You only pop in a forum to give a positive twist in favor of cryptic, whenever someone is speaking negatively, I can't even think of a time you've come in to say something unrelated to cryptic that wasn't defending them outright...........

But who knows, maybe I'm wrong, and you do post about other stuff... perhaps someone can vouch you here.

Not attacking you in any shape or form but everything you said can be contradicted in the stowiki or shipyard on qo'nos. As well the information you provided on squishy and shield modifiers is bogus info too. The lower shield modifier in fact is due to the perk of Dual Cannons vs feds not being able to mount them on most of their cruisers. KDF gets those mountable but they get a lower shield modifier in its stead. As for being squishy you are refering to the 30k on a b'rel vs the 40k this new raptor will give. As far as them being squishy they will both not have any shields while integrating into cloak which that is what truely makes them squishy but a good player will bring enough defense for that to not be a problem.

It is just a matter of someone trying to impose a nerf on the KDF from a federation point of view. As far as the KDF getting the better deal... look around the KDF hasn't gotten much of anything all year so your logic and statements are seriously flawed.

Edit: Whooptydoodah it has a batte cloak and can stand one more torpedo hit LOL.

I do occasionally answer questions others have Seen over the various subforums (most recent is the KDF ones)

Sometimes I don't even mention Cryptic, as shocking as that may seem. I simply hate hate HATE when something I like (be it STO or Cryptic, who has yet to do something I think is wrong) is attacked, I'm more-or-less in a rush to defend it.

You could pay it for the forum title or the in-game title.

You could pay it for the Jupiter Veteran costume plus the badge (or the furry Klingon ones).

Search, the forums - plenty of people have said on many occasions that since F2P the LTS simply wasn't worth the money - and I agree.

It's a $300 ship - anyone that's considering an LTS is probably trying to justify it otherwise but since F2P, the LTS wasn't worth it. It still isn't - but you get a shiny ship now that you can't get any other way - that makes it so much more worth it...
You are correct, I will be enjoying my nice shiny ship in addition to everything you listed above, plus all the vet rewards, and extra 500 Zen / month for the life of the game. Thanks for the congratulations

If you don't agree with someone, you must work for the enemy! It's a (false) dilemma! If you aren't with us, you're with the terro... err, Cryptic! Ad hominem FTW!

You think that your beta test was bad?
