Right now, I'm between buying the Scimitar and this because I love the look of the Tactical Warbird and the beam attack you get is pretty nifty.
I could live with that.

A HUGE thank you to Cryptic for the Mogh-class battle cruiser!

Can you imagine what THAT would do to this build? ... And can you also imagine how much MORE money Cryptic would make off THAT because of this BOFF layout many question with this base build they are putting in the standard c-store model?

They would then see all of us who have been sitting on the fence and not getting it then getting it for the fleet ship module discount as we also rush to buy the fleet ship version.

That's my bet on this. That's what I bet they are thinking and planning.
and i really hope you are right because that would be pretty damn awesome.

After some more testing...

I've decided this ship is baddazz. I can't wait until it is released. Great job on the BoFF seating. I can kill a Vorcha in a flat out attack run in like 3 seconds. Plasma Cannon FTW!

You can see how I set mine up right here: http://starfleetops.com/romulan-destroyer-1080-hd/

BORTICUS: I know you might be tempted to change it up, but please leave it just like it is!
Just make sure to give us a FLEET variant

I see nothing of how yours is set up. What is worse it appears that you set up your ship focusing on Tactical, meaning you made the Ltcmdr Universal into a Tactical Boff..... If not then you do not use Tactical Team??? Also, please do not assume that killing a NPC Vorcha is a good bench mark for declaring the ship good. It is very underpowered in terms of comparison to other ships of the same Tier.

Sorry, but even with Borg Regeneration going. You would still melt in seconds if you did not use the Ltcmdr Universal for Engineering. Please also include your build, as your Buff Bar was too much of a mess to make many assumptions on what you did with it.

As I suspected, no Fleet version on release as per Brandons comment in the latest dev blog....

No fleet variant is unfortunate, as apparently many Romulans already use Fleet Dhelans, Mogais. Of course, for those, there will be no reason whatsoever to get the new ship...

I was merely comparing it with C-Store Tier 5 ships, and there, in my opinion, it played a really nice role (I like Boff setups of 6, 4, 2).
TOIVA, Toi Vaxx, Toia Vix: Bring in the Allegiance class
Toi'Va, Ti'vath, Toivia: Design that long overdue Tier 5 C-Store Raptor
Tae'Va, T'Vaya, To'Var: Give us Asylums for Romulans

Don't make ARC mandatory! Keep it optional only!

The lack of a fleet version is incredibly stupid it does not take that much to just copy a ship and add the extra stats, and i really doubt the fleet skin would take that long either.

very dumb decision.

It's hard to really give an opinion on the ship without knowing what it's fleet variant is like. That extra console could make all the difference in builds and such.

An engineer console slot will mean an extra space for universal consoles (Ah, I remember when sci console slots used to be for universal console dumping).

An extra sci console slot could make it a shield tanker or effective mid-sci ship that some Romulan players have been looking for.

An extra tac console slot would make it an equivalent of the fleet advanced escort.

As it stands it looks to be an effective escort for Romulans (read - just as OP as the rest of the Rom escorts).

I do wish we could adjust customize it's appearance on tribble.
