I'm betting that we are either not going to see a fleet version until things are ironed out, or they are holding off on a Fleet version so that all factions get some ships added to the Fleet holdings with the Season 8 update end of Oct or beginning Nov.
EDIT: I just have this horrible feeling that is when season 8 goes live because that is the week that all the other major titles come out I wanna dedicate some time to.
Hi, my name is: Elim Garak, Former Cardassian Oppressor
LTS, here since...when did this game launch again?
Elite Scorpions are pretty much Sir Spamalot of awesomness for STO.
Still without a Fleet Version no buy at all that ship still does nothing the Dehlan or Mogai can't manage aswell ecxept yes now those fancy carrier pets.
There is still the issue with Quads and [Dmg]x4 making them only to some extend useful for less challenging PvE and the fact that the -10 ENG drain is twice as painful on a Warbird because those ships already have a hefty powerlevel nerf.
And ontop of that you get forced if you like to use the 2p Bonus to have them equiped.
So most of the issues that got mentioned in the Feedback are still there and not addressed at all.
P.S. actualy pretty funny 1st all rage about it how subpar it is, and after the result of slapping a Hangar on it to appeace the masses all Looks fluffy again?
Still feals a Little cheap to me Fighters not the everything cure.
Like knocking someone over and stealing a kidney. And as compensation buy em some Icecream.
As an aside, as far as the quad cannons go and what modifiers work best for them, I think it's clear nobody particularly cares for [dmg] mods either for quad cannons or any weapon. What if you had x4[CrtD] mods? Suddenly that -10 engine drain looks like it's worth it now, right?
(tbh I use quad-phasers on my Defiant for style points. I don't really see the big deal and don't feel disadvantaged in PVE)
