Where has Cryptic stated that they favor Escorts over all others?
The first we heard of getting new PvP maps "soon" was in August of 2010. We're consistently told something will be coming with the "next" update. Absolutely nothing has come to PvP since launch.

I think it's finally time Cryptic stopped stringing us along, don't you?

I think that it is going to stop some of the complaining about Feds not having cloaking devises and the BoP alpha on spawn. It might balance things out but it might also give people another reason to complain. I suspect the later, but until it is implemented we will not know. One thing there is for sure it is going to open more options for people to do, which is a good thing.

The blog clearly states the T1 warbird will handle like a raider (bird of prey), the t2 will be like a escort, and the t3 will be like a destroyer, all of these will have t5 versions available.

Also they stated the D'deridex will appeal to people who like battlecruisers, well battlecruisers vary a lot in their base turn rate, from slow turners like Bortasqu, to the Fleet Ktinga which handles almost like a destroyer. So we really have no idea how good this thing will turn until they release the stats.

I am confident Cryptic wants to sell ships, so they won't make these suck.

sounds like the big warbirds everyone cares about are going to turn like fed cruisers, and thus suck, draining away about 90% of my ability to care about the faction at all

battlecloak and a mighty singly LTC Tac. Sneaky snoozers. Well it'll still be better than the GalX with that setup.

Turn...? Turn!?! I don't care about TURNING!

I'm making all my Romulan toons go to the KDF side, so they will have instant (and free) access to Subspace Jump. So the moment they have the level, and if I choose to put them in a slower turning ship, I can use Subspace Jump for the same reason as my Bortas:

To make it so that turn doesn't mean ****.

Besides, when I have to turn, I've always found that Evasives in reverse is perfectly fine most of the time. If needed I will chain a Deuterium Surplus, and maybe an engine battery.

Plus these buggers are going to be cloaking. So I can set myself up for an attack however I like ahead of time.

Sure in PvP I'd be totally running it differently, but in PvE, I don't see a massive need to turn as it stands now.



My plans of flying a D'deridex haven't changed.

I bet the bops will be beasts.
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.

We need to wait and see what kinds of powers willl be associated with the new singularity warp cores as well. we simply don't have enough information at this point to make a call on this issue.

In a PodcastUGC interview with Captain Gecko they asked about the sci/esc/cru dynamics. Gecko stated that they focus more on escorts as more people spend money on them. Because of that they give escorts more love. VERY disappointing.

My fears exactly.
