Hello,

So im really liking the new cruiser mechanics and a lot of my toons will thank cryptic when these updates hit,as i have a corsair,odessey and a bortas'qu.But i couldnt help but notice that while the galaxy class did get some buffs,the second most horrible thing about the gal-x (first being the lack of tac consoles),i.e the turn rate,is being addressed for cruisers in general,the galaxy did not receive the buff to turn(Command: Strategic Maneuvering).Please can anyone from the dev team comment as to the reason why the galaxy did not get this buff?The other 2 buffs are very important too but the turn rate is the second biggest issue and should have been addressed first.If the devs are worried about balance,they can take the Command:Attract fire in return for the turn rate buff.

So can any dev comment please?

I'd like to know also what exactly makes the G-X not able to follow in line with other federation cruisers and get all 4 buffs. Let alone what makes it so uber that your only allowing for 2 out of the 4. Attract fire seems kinda lame on a G-X when it could use the turn buff alot more then a buff to add aggro.

I hate to say it, but the Devs don't go here. In their eyes, there is evil here that does not sleep.

Pretty sure they don't care for the Galaxy family much. The Avenger pretty much replaces the Dreadnought, minus the Phaser Lance. Can hold DHCs, turns much better, has cloak, more hull...

Maaaan. The Galaxies are utterly worthless now...

The gun IS the difference. Just need to build yourself for it. But I won't share my secret lest everyone copies, and forces devs to nerf it.

And also, I could easily reassign my eng boffs and turn into a combat support healcruiser, which is what I am in fleet 20mans and when a friend drags me kicking and screaming into pvp.

I've lived without a buff to turn for 2 years, I can carry on living with it. WSE is the most important buff for the Lance. Attract Fire however can be almost completely nullified by -TH consoles, giving the ship a +hullres buff.

The buffs given are all better for pve than pvp, but the Gal-X has always been an excellent ship for pve anyway.

Those of us who know how the Fabled Dread can perform are sworn to silence (oops) and are grinning from 10 forward to the shuttle bay in anticipation of even the slightest increase in our OPness. When the great day of reckoning arrives and the Fleet Dread is released in the new battle cruiser ship category, the Captains of this Widowmaker Galaxy will rejoice once more and chuckle silently at those who scream for more OPness for our beloved chariot.

Sir Lance A Lot is waiting, silently stalking Kerrat, waiting for the opportunity to swoop down and relieve a Klingon vessel of it's crew and it's very existence in a nanosecond. Switch off your music, listen for our buffs for you are our prey, and when we read the inevitable "wtf?" in zone chat our grin is stretched that much wider and the legend is confirmed to another unsuspecting soul sent gibbering on his way to Gre'thor. Aye Gre'thor for you, the shame of being popped by a Galaxy will haunt you forever as you slave in the firepits of hell.

*points at my signature image*

I NEED to ask this... What do I have to do to get into the secret Dreadnought club?
I've put so much work into mine, and it still has a ways to go, and even though I'm a Tac Captain, I KNOW there has to be a way I can be competetive, I just can't figure it out...
I'm tired of being the weakest VA in the fleet, and I don't want to be relegated to Escorts cause I'm a Tac...

Please help. I don't PvP much, but I'd like to at least be a threat when I do...

Just be incredibly deluded anything the gal x can do the regent or excelsior can do with ease and then go past what the galx can do and double in effectiveness

Except cloak but then it's not a battle cloak and swallows one of th already Drab 9 console slots
----=====This is my opinion you don't have to listen and no one else has to read them these "OPINIONS" are based on my exploits and my learning other people will have their opinions and that's fine just don't knock my way of doing things thanks=====----
