Q: (trygvar13) What happened to the D?Gavama class Bird of Prey? I have the screenshot of when it was released on TRIBBLE but it is still not available.

Dstahl: This ship was removed prior to our Free to Play launch and we expect it to return to the game later this year.


Wasn't that some sort of B'Rel variant? It's a Romulan-Klingon BoP, no? Too early to speculate on stats?

Q: (nometa) Will we be able to get a Romulan Warbird or a D?deridex class now that we?re helping the Romulans on New Romulus?

Dstahl: We discussed this opportunity when we were developing Season 7, however we decided that player interest in a Romulan faction is so high that we need to reserve these ships for a future update when we can implement a playable Romulan faction. So until then, these ships will be off limits to the Romulan Reputation System!


Dev might get to go wheeeeee at some point, eh?

Q: (blubsplash) Have you ever thought about implementing a socketing system for gear?

Dstahl: Yes we have and, in fact, we will be implementing a new type of gear for the May update that will use a socketing feature.


DDIS, going to update all the ships in the thread?

Q: (whamhammer1) If it is true that the game?s space combat engine cannot handle more than four weapons per side (front/rear)?

Dstahl: Let me stop you right there. We have a ship coming that breaks this rule, so it is not true.


Could that start with the Kumari?

So, how many DHCs before it becomes a detriment to performance?

5?

6?

5/4 would be bad, eh? Should I run 4 DHC or 3 DHC and a Torp? Ahhh, 4 DHC and a Torp!
3/2/3 would be interesting.
4/5 would be...lol.

Technically, the question was:

If it is true that the game?s space combat engine cannot handle more than four weapons per side (front/rear)?

So it included options for 4+/4+ or more than just fore/aft.
