Even if I didn't have a record of every carrier after it rusting the Atrox a little more? Even if it does fail in ever aspect vs. a cruiser or even a science ship? Even if it fails in it's design use of being a anti-klingon ship? (Even if there wasn't a tiny foot note about updating the description to current standard in the patch note before last?)

In the rush to make the the the escort omni-carrier and lock boxes nice shiny, they updated updated the Antiproton Sweep sweep graphic.

One small hickup. Advanced Stalker Fighters.

Please note they have Antiproton Sweep. ... So that's 12 super shiny particle affects going off at once.

What frame rate? I had a frame rate? Where?

So what I got from this was,

-The Antrox is being made worse to make new lock box carriers better
-All the antiproton sweeps are causing frame rate drops.

So the a guy may be saying, "How I know that the Devs dislike the Antrox."

Though I can agree with the Antrox statement, this would hurt other carriers like the Dreadnought too.

Sorry, I'm a odd ball (and bad at english ). The should be "How I know the devs forgot the Atrox?"

What xigbarg said. I wouldn't say it's being made worse, so much as it's dieing of neglect though.

Good lord. It's 1am as I read this OP, and was wondering if my brain was still working right since I didn't understand anything.

To answer the OP...
It's planned obsolescence. If your Atrox didn't SUCK vs the new shiny ship, then you'd have no reason to buy the new one, right? It's how things go. Cryptic does not care about what you BOUGHT, only what you will BUY.
Sometimes I think I play STO just to have stuff to rant about on the forums!

Quoted for truth. Cryptic is a business, and exists to sell you whatever new shiny thing they've cooked up.

I think my brain just works 'left' instead of right.

That's bad logic on someone's part. Expanding the stock is good for giving people more options, and with more things to buy, more things bought. That logic effectively means only one item is in stock at any given time, the rest is just clutter to be safely ignored.

What's more it at least discourages me as I have to ask my self: Why buy anything (old or new) at all if it's shelf-life in two to three months?

Not for the same cause, that is the effect I refused to even look at the vesta line or escorts in general. I don't view them as participially well balanced and refuse to inflict that imbalance on someone else.

It "seems" like bad logic to the shoppers, but to the business it makes perfect sense...

As was quickly mentioned earlier, if the new Jem'Hadar Dreadnought carrier wasn't better than the Atrox or the Recluse, what reason would the Feds have to rush and get the new carrier, they'd just sit on their existing carrier.

Lots of things work this way, cars, computers, TVs, Blu-Ray players, etc. As new features/toys comes out, they have to be better to entice people into buying them, otherwise you'd get one and stick with it until the device breaks...
Well, with the upgrade announcement leaving NX and Connie fans in the dust again, can we restart / revisit the T5 Connie and NX threads - since they will no longer be "truly" endgame ships... (after we get the T5 versions, it'll be time to see them added to the T5U upgrade charts too...
