Brandon, NO escort should EVER have a shield mod higher than... MAYBE 1.1, TOPS. I will tell you right now, I already have a build planned for that to make it unkillable and strong in DPS. I'm sorry, but this ship is BROKEN. Saw this coming the moment I played the Rommie mission on Tribble. This ship will be capable of 20,000 shield cap EASY. Full set of Crescent Disruptors on her with a decent BOff Layout? Yea, that will RAVAGE enemies. If PvP wasn't dead before, it is NOW. I don't even PvP, and I know this.

This ship is PW doing what PW always does: Hitting game balance with a WRECKING BALL in the name of profit. They really ARE Ferengi...

Which means it's extremely resistant, since shields mean much more than hull in this game. At the same time it has high damage output, granted if you manage to get through the shields somehow it's toast, true, but that is true for every escort I think.
of curse while you figure out a way through the shields, the elachi escort will shut you down with it'S sci abilities and prep for kill.

The Monbosh Battleship dissapointed me...
"Achiever Killers often look to 1v1 duels for proof of their superior play and are frustrated by "rock paper scissor" game mechanics."
That's me !

Can you release stats on the new lobi console?

I really like the look of that escort. It reminds me of an Insecticon. If I can ever get one of my characters up to max level, I think I'd like to try and get myself one of those.

You mean, like, if for example they were to add a weapon that had a decent chance to proc a shield bypass? That'd chew these right up?

Don't get why everybody's annoyed\surprised: Elachi ships have always had annoyingly durable shields. It applies to both their space and ground forces. Glad they went for something different rather than cutting and pasting stats.

Don't really care about PvP, so any "implications" in that regard don't bother me *shrug* Still gonna enjoy zooming around in that Escort

Assuming the person flying it has never played this game before, sure. This blog hasn't been out for half an hour and I've already got all its equipment planned. This thing, in the hands of ANYONE that knows how to build a ship, will be a totally unstoppable killing machine.

It is no problem to tailor a ship to be an Elachi killer and either shut down shields or bypass them, but you sacrifice other abilities for that which are generally more useful.
