# 1 Fleet Arkif
09-29-2013, 03:08 AM
Is there going to be a fleet version. For some setups id really like to have an arkif. But with 9 consoles and less hull and shields and only 4 tac consoles it still is a bad tradeoff compared to other romulan ships.
Is this going to happen ? If yes when ?

I dunno, but I know I ain't touching this until I see the fleet version, and if that doesn't happen before I find another ship, then I won't touch it at all since I'll already have a ship.

They need to hold some fleet ships back so when the Federation and Klingons get the next Fleet ship Romulans can get an upgrade too. Although why would you care about not getting a Fleet ship upgrade if you got it on day one.

Yes a Fleet ship is coming, the developers have said as much. When is anybodies guess but when you hear talk of the others getting a Fleet ship chances are this one will be upgraded at that time.

Remember 10% Shield and Hull so 0.99% Shield Modifier and 34,650 Hull.

The big question is where will the 10th Console go? Considering you have 2 Fleet Escorts with 5 Tac Consoles, I think Science or Engineering. And if I where to guess Engineering.
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.

I am pretty sure it will get an Engineering console, giving it a balanced 4/3/3 layout, like the Fleet HEC.

With Fleet tier rapidly becoming, if not already, the de facto standard of ships nowadays, and ships being sold at Fleet Tier out of the box, the lack of a fleet version, particularly on Yet Another Tac Warbird, is pretty much a dealbreaker, and it shows: You can't enter CE without tripping over at least 2 or 3 Scimitars (despite it being fairly old at this point), but this new bird is nowhere to be seen. The Hot New Shiny has no love, and I can't help but think the lack of a fleet tier version's specs, let alone the actual thing, is a dealbreaker for more than just me.

Sure, they have SAID so, but at this point their credibility is in the terlet. They say many things, most of them untrue. At this point, one should not believe anything they say until it becomes fait accompli. Hear all, believe nothing.

According to some **** on tribble, some tooltips have popped up stating there will be fleet versions of not only the 1000 day veteran ships, but also the Karfi and Caitan carriers. There is already a tooltip about the fleet arkif on its console from the refit. It says one of the requirement ships is a fleet arkif.

Whoever earlier said they wouldnt bother getting the arkif unless its fleet, you should really re think that. In PVE, its an extremely powerful ship when using plasma. Just because it is missing one console really doesn't hinder it that much. I dont usually like 9 consoles either but i have come to overlook it more since buying that ship however my comments only really apply if you get both ships for the quads as well as the console. The 2 set bonus is awesome.
