It's a good thing I live to impress people online and be credible with them.

But that's fine feel how you want. I've dumped enough money into the game at this point to warrant playing it how I want.

I have something that works very well for me in PVE and for me that's just fine. But I'm glad you're so much better than me.

Let's all remember the guy who started this thread doesn't even own a Scimitar.
I was once DKnight1000, apparently I had taken my own name so now I'm DKnight0001.
If I ask you a question it is not an insult but a genuine attempt to understand why.
When I insult you I won't be discreet about it, I will be precise and to the point stupid.

Too squishy, too big and with low turn rate.

it is probably one of the worst ship in the game, and I knew it.
I said it about 20 times in various threads, but no one believed me.
Linky.

That would be a video of one of my fleetmates in a Scimitar COMPLETING ISE SOLO WITH THE OPTIONAL.

Worst ship my rear end.

Wow - 8 Experimental Romulan Plasma Beam Arrays - on 1 ship - interesting weapon set-up

4000 romulan marks just for that

great for PvE it seems although hard to control with others also involved - but I think this was just for show? PvP of course would be another matter with a fast moving escort coming up behind.

Scimitars started out really fragile until folks got the hang of them. There's still a few dodgy ones but generally I see them doing loads of damage. If there's any downside it is getting tangled in one warping between sectors. I've been juggled to top then bottom then top of the zone, at least until it fled. The coolest scims are the few with thalaron pulses. Once you're sure it's not aimed at yourself then you shoot for as much threat and lockdown as possible -- fire everything. No doubt the scimitar player spent quite a bit on it, so let's make it a party! Quick game's a good game.

the real art of dpsing is to keep over 15k dps in a 9 minute battle when everybody else is doing <3k.
4 minute battle with 2 others above 10k, is normally an indicator that the 20k guy was spamming a2b infused BFAW.

this is not a critique, i'm just trying to explain why and how those numbers come to be, based on personal experiance.

and @ newromulan1: the romulan beams, once the store for them is unlocked only cost refined dilithium...there is only the unique romulan experimental beam that cost dilithium and 500 marks.
Go pro or go home

I don't know about you but I love my ship. It's been one of the best I've had thus far.

People are slamming this, but not saying what the problem is.

1. More than one torpedo is too much. You have the mines already, drop the torps for more beams. Or choose one Torp and drop the other torp and the mines for more beams.(Just because it CAN mount cannons doesn't mean it SHOULD)

2. Tactical consoles should be buffing your energy damage of choice(In this case, Disruptor). Shift the universals to Engineering and Science. Yes, that'll mean taking off the Field Generators and potentially one Universal. You'll have to make a choice on this one given how many universals you have.

That's what I see at least. Can't see your bridge officers for whatever reason.

They aren't much of an improvement.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
