some of the complaints just make me lul.

"its a big ship it should have bigger hull!" - no mention of the turning speed
"its a big ship it should turn slower" - no mention of the relatively small hull.
"omg this ship is too science oriented wdf" - no way. a SCIENCE SHIP is too SCIENCE oriented? what's it like being a rocket scientist?

in any event, i agree that its current layouts somewhat make it a tad "overpowered". however, i see this as the ship that finally puts science vessels on fairly even ground with escorts and cruisers. say what you will about your "super awesome science build", an escort or (in certain cases) a cruiser can produce the similar necessitated result in a far more efficient manner.

Can you buy a single variant, remove the ADHC, dismiss and reclaim the ship, and repeat for as many ADHC's as you want?

That as much so be an obvious YES!

Defiants cloaked with full aux power, decloaking and suffering minimal DPS loss when they do.

Right now I cope by using Tech doffs and Aux2batt to quickly turn all that Aux power into firepower. Imagine not needing to do that and just go straight up 3 subnuc doffs and 2 BFI doffs.

Scary thought.

Maybe, just maybe, this means they'll be removing those restrictions from the 180 degree Torpedo, the Quad Cannons, and the Thermionic Torpedo...

If the KDF can get a Fleet D7 (That can be upgraded to a T5-U), the Feds should have a Fleet Exeter.

we can certainly hope , the 180 torpedo in multiples on an armitage would be a nice concept

By does an armitage need 180 degree torps? You can just as well run all normal q torps. Its the shared cooldown between projectiles that kills it for the armitage.

And I really don't recommend mounting several QCs at once or you'd grind to a halt every time you spacebar.

ok, now i feel like cartman in that post you edited.


balance implications- you eliminate the need for weapons power, you only need to worry about 3 of your 4 of your subsystems, and not give a second thought to weapons power. and thats on ALL ships that can use DHC, dismissing and reclaiming would get you a 4th.

if the devs in charge of introducing new things in game, and balancing the game, think that for even a second this is a good idea, they are not qualified, incompetent really.

for them to remain employed they should be made to learn their own game better, and the only good way to do that is to que up for pvp, were balance maters, and truly learn. its unacceptable that they arent all top tier pvp'ers, those that deal with balance. it can be balanced and awesome at the same time, really it can. its your job to put enough effort into this to make sure that its both, or your not doing your job, and damaging the game long term.

Random point, but if it's like the Quads, it will scale damage off weapons power despite draining Aux. Thats probably why you can have several.

Running at max aux can be a good investment for scis, but i'm still wondering why every new ship has to be even more OP than the previous one, without any PvE content buff...
