Fleet Tier 6 vs Tier 6?

dratikusdratikus Member Posts: 118 Arc User
Is there really a big difference between the Fleet Tier 6 and the Tier 6? I already spend the money on the tier 6 just don't know if it's worth it to spend more money for a minor upgrade in ships.

    Do you have an extra console that you'd really like to add, as in 500 zen worth of like? There's your answer.

    extra console slot, extra hull, extra shield mod. look at the guardian as an example:

    t6, 53000 hull, 1.0 shield mod, 10 consoles
    fleet t6, 58300 hull, 1.1 shield mod, 11 consoles

    so if that's worth 5 bucks more is up to you.

    Keep in mind, the C-Store Command FDC's are already Fleet level also.

    500 Zen gets you:

    +10% Shields
    +10% Hull
    +1 console slot.

    What a Fleet ship does not get you:
    Starship Trait. You need to buy the "normal" version of the ship in order to get the Trait (Mastery is included, though). Keep in mind that some ships (Like the CBCs and Lockbox ships) already come at Fleet level.

    If any dev guy reads this for whatever reason, let me just ask a question... Is this what you (collectively) wanted? To see your most loyal fans, who were willing to offer help, who were wanting to improve the decency of a basic aspect of the game, completely stamped out? Is this what you wanted?

    the op already said he owns the t6. he's just trying to decide if he wants to upgrade to the fleet version.

    I know, I'm just throwing that out there for anyone that reads/searches for the thread with a similar question.

    I bought the Andromeda class from C-Store. Judging from the other responses, the differences in stats is just too minor to justify the cost.

    On that note, are there any other ship/gear that might be worth the cost? Should I hold out for a future "tier 7"?

    it took them 5 years to come out with t6. i don't think you['re going to see a 7 for years, especially since they're just starting to release the fleet t6s. there's like a 100 fleet ships they can sell before needing to worry about 7s.

    as far as the cost to upgrade to fleet t6, 5 bucks is about 2 weeks of grinding dilithium. not exactly a big deal.

    Run the tour the universe quest for the rest of the week on one, (and/or alts) and buy it off the exchange. Decide then

    You can't buy the T6 ship in game without money. (ok but you own it).

    You can buy the fleet version without spending any real life money. (no wonder no trait).

    IMHO, if you own a T6 and can buy the fleet version for EC, why not? ANY increase is better, period. Worth real money? your choice. Dropping EC that you can earn easy, dude why make a post?

    forgot you can buy fleet mods on the exchange. not even much of an issue at all then.

    T6 just came out. Do not worry about T7 anytime soon. Not to mention we were on T5 ships for years.

    As for gear worth the cost, judging from your registration date, I'm thinking you should have a decent assortment of gear already? If you've been playing enough during those years you should have good gear and that for now would suffice until you feel better about venturing out for experimenting with new stuff. But if you don't have much, there are some freebie gear that can be attained that are decent to good.

    Jem'Hadar Space Set from the Dominion "Second Wave" story arc. Ideal for traditional Polarons and Drains.

    Solanae Space Set (look in the Episode, can't remember episode name). Oriented more for Science but has a real nifty Hull Leech Proc.

    Kobali Space Set. One of the later Delta Quadrant missions, used to be a recent FE. This space set on a ship like your T6 Andromeda.

    Absolute Zero / Breen Space Set. Not too fond of it but it has it's following in the playerbase. Can be collected free of course from the Breen / Deferi episodes.

    Do not forget to take a look at the 2 new FE's. You get some interesting free stuff from there.

    If you need free weapons, you need to scour your Episodes list. There's tons of decent free weapons offered as rewards that will do the job for the time being. If anything, I'd say hold off on fancy purchases past your ship until you get a better feel of things. When you are more confident of the game and your knowledge on it, then you'd exactly know what your ship needs to get better.

    I doubt they'll do a T7 at all, because I don't think they'll do a level cap raise ever again. What are we going to be after reaching Fleet Admiral and Dahar Master? President of the Federation? Chancellor of the Empire?

    ...

    Aw ****, they'll do that won't they.

    I really think specs are our new levels. No need for T7 or MKXV.

    Don't let that date fool you. I bought the game during the pre-order and played through head start. I think I played for almost a year, then sometime last year I played again and got my character up to level 50. A few weeks ago I hear about the Delta Recruit and in that time I leveled up 2 delta recruits to 50, and my main to 55.

    So, the date isn't an indication of gear or knowledge, at least in my case. :o
