This is just a shout out giving props to the devs for hearing our feedback and giving us a choice of ships for the three different careers at Sub-admiral Rank! I was seriously not happy about the idea of scis with no subsystem targetting or Tacs with no turn rate. I absolutely LOVE the three variants you are offering now, and they seem be balanced very well against KDF and Fed counterparts.

Before this update I was planning on just buying a Dhelan for my Rommie Sci Officer and dealing with it, now I will get the Dhelan and the Guardian and find a way to get T5 shipyard access for the fleet version of the Guardian.

End result:

Before the changes: Cryptic sells one Dhelan retrofit and One Fleet Module

After the changes: Cryptic sells one Dhelan Retrofit and FIVE ship modules and some lucky fleet gets 20 million ECs from me for T5 access.


I am very excited about having both the ships and the options of different setups for different PvP groups.

THANK YOU DEVS!

Between the fleshing out of the DOFF system and the adding of Tac, Eng, or Sci choices at Tier 5 for ships, the Dev Blogs have been an extremely happy thing to read this week. Excellent news.

Yeah. they keep getting closer to good. However it doesn't matter what they change on the D'deridex if they keep it at 5 turn. You could give it 5 tac consoles, and it still won't matter. With 5 turn, you are stuck with beams which cannot hurt anyone.

Please, please PLEASE devs take note. Low turn=not fun, in any way shape or form. You may have a handful of people who think its fun to RP and think they are tough in a big slow cruiser, but they are not the majority, and they are not tough.

Please, for the love of pete, give some decent cruisers to someone other than KDF. I really would like to get into pvp again. However I have been stuck with a fed cruiser in which again, low turn=not fun.

3 years of feedback and I am shocked that you have not grasped this concept.

All the escorts are great now though. Shocking.

The D'Deridex is the Excelsior of the Romulan Navy. But turns slower.

The T'Varo is the B'Rel of the Romulan Navy. But turns slower.

Notice the theme?

Romulans take their time turning. They're chill. You should chillax with them.

For me, before changes Cryptic was going to sell a starter pack and a fleet Mogai.

After changes, Cryptic lost both sales. With nothing interesting enough to replace it with.

The T'Varo is not the B'rel of the Romulans by no means other than enhanced cloak. Its the Defiant, but turns better.

I am sorry, but I will not chillax. The turn rate is too slow to have any remote effectiveness in pvp. Neither of the cruisers will not have any kind of effectiveness in pvp. I like cruisers. I like flying cruisers. Anything lower than a 7 base is worthless.

I mean, why put cannons on the stupid thing at all? You can't use em.

For me, its the oppositve. I always wanted to fly an end game Valdore, but when I looked at the old Mogai readout I went like "No, dont want that"

Now the new Retrofit Mogai stats fit the armored, heavy looks of a Valdore perfectly.

So for me, this is a sale.

Also, with 1 RCS console the Deridex will turn great and bring its DHCs to bear on any foolish borg in an STF.
Let us wear Swimsuits on Foundry maps or bridges please! I would pay zen for that.

I don't give a flying pig about borg in STFs. 1 RCS will give it roughly 7 base. Hardly enough for beams let alone DHCs. You already have plenty of ships for your boring STFs (read ANY ship). Why is it so much to ask for a decent pvp cruiser fed side?

But you pvers continue raving that the thing is going to turn awesome. You are who the devs listen to, which is why it will go live with 5 base turn. Yay!
