You know, I've seen a lot of people take "little things" in this game pretty hard over the time I've been here, and each time I sat back and wondered why. People would rant and rave, and I don't think I ever really understood.

However, I now get it. Making the Fleet Assault Cruiser a tier 5 fleet ship was the "little thing" for me. The Regent is the first ship in this game I really "loved," and now I'm not going to be able to fly her without feeling underpowered (still gonna do it anyway though), knowing that there is a better version out there that will never be accessable to my fleet of modest means.

I don't really get the logic behind the decision, so let me just say this...to all of you who've been burned by a similar decision, I now feel your pain.

I guess on the bright side, there is now no reason for me to spend real money on fleet ship modules...

The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The Constellation is made up primarily of Connie refit parts and it is tier 5, there is no logical reason whatsoever for the no tier 5/6 connie rule.

does not look like much of a difference, from the regent and sovereign class, all i can see is added tac console, 1.1 shield mod, boff layout looks the same as the regent, hull i think look a bit higher. Was expecting more from the fleet ac, like increase turn, higher shield mod maybe and higher hull and maybe another science console as well as a extra tac. Some of these thing i would of been happy. the AC is a DPS/Tank hybrid and should continue on.

fleet sov 42900 hull, 1.1 shield mod, regent stations, 4 tac consoles

fleet brel 24750 hull, shield mod .88, 4 eng consoles. yes, it has enhanced BC. 4 eng? really?

fleet varanus- 31350 hull, 1.32 shield mod, 11 turn, same ens eng, 3rd tac console. a 5th sci would have been nice, like the fleet deap space.

I cannot understand why a company would say

"No, I will not take your money unless you join a mega-fleet and/or grind the longest grind in STO history!"

Confuses me.

according to this http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y16...2/sovfleet.jpg there is no science boff just an added engineer. not sure about that. What they should do is bump the LT to LCT and add a science boff?
