    So does it mean that at T6 you can go to fleet and buy a T6 ship for gobs for resources like with the T6 Lukari ship? Requires 5 fleet mods? Per toon who wants that ship... each toon will need to reach T6... yeah. /yawn

    Why on Earth would you assume that?

    Not sure why that's good news for Vor'cha fans, unless it'll be able to use Vor'cha skins. Seems more like bad news for Romulan players, though. Between this and the destroyers, it doesn't bode well for future Romulan ship content.

    The references to the Ambassador class and Vor'Cha class in the linked article are rather suggestive of these ships being able to use the skins of the aforementioned ships.

    Um...does what mean that? The announcement doesn't say anything about acquisition.

    past precedence... colony world at max rep you can go to fleet and buy a T6 ship. requires 5 fleet mods and gobs of resources per toon (ship not account unlock). do you honestly think they will give you an account unlock for maxing it on one toon?

    considering the new cruiser can use the new orleans -galaxy skin I can't see why not

    There's no way in hell they are going to pass up such a good money making opportunity. Even though this particular blog doesn't say it out, T6 versions of those ships will be coming for sure.
  • tigerariestigeraries Member Posts: 3,478 Arc User
    Lukari Dranuur Scout Ship - requires your fleet to have T5 Fleet Colony World. Only 20k fleet marks (nice), 1 Starbase Military Fleet Ship Provisioning... and this is the kicker... 5 Fleet Ship Modules. So 2,500 Zen/$25.

    This is per toon. Not an account unlock. And if you some how dismiss the ship... you need to pony up another 5 fleet mods.

    Yeah once your fleet grinds all the way to finish off T5 Fleet Colony World... you get the honor and privilege of spending about $25 in zen to buy a ship for 1 toon.

    Don't get me wrong here... I would be very happy if they just gave you the ship for free once you max out T6 rep. But I just don't see them doing that.
  • captainkoltarcaptainkoltar Member Posts: 768 Arc User
    No, I'd expect them to be C-Store ships, selling for 3000 zen each, with a two pack also available.

    My God. On the Federation side they finally designed a original 25th century Cryptic ship that LOOKS LIKE an actual Star Trek ship. ;)

    Did anyone notice the typo in that blog? "he is supposed to be the." LOL
    The Rising of the Delta is the best expansion ever, and people love it to death because it is a good day to die in the endless struggle for supremacy of your own conviction. (A spin off of the Delta Rising is the best expansion ever and all the players love it.)

    And it is now offical that the romulan faction is dead.

    Nah - Cryptic confirmed that they are planning to continue designing Romulan ships in the future. And I mean, they have never lied to their playerbase before.
    Obviously sarcasm.


    Thing is, I wouldn't even have much problems with it, if they were upfront with it. But no, Cryptic again needs to live up to its name to the fullest and has to continue with vague promises ("I want to assure you we aren't planning on never making another Romulan or Jem'hadar ship"), obviously leaving an incredibly bad taste to everyone's mouth.
    Don't think your players are all 5 or something, we aren't that stupid.

    Oh, and who wants to bet we are getting another pointless mini-faction with AoD, complete with recruitment event, that turns into yet another fed (or maybe kdf) clone at the end?

    T6 Vor'cha and Ambassador and it doesn't seem like the fans are being punished for harassing them like the Connie fans were.

    I may buy them, it might give the Ambassador skin some use.

    CStore ships, just like the New Orleans was a couple weeks back. And it'd be just silly, not to mention stupid, if they didn't allow the old skins to be used on these new T6's. Probably even get an updated skin of the T5's.

    Also, no new Rom or Jem ships. Figured as much. But, I'm willing to bet they will eventually release a pack just for Roms and Jems. A 2 pack, 1 for each. Of course WHEN that will be...?

    Very interesting. But... support cruiser ? I've got this sneaking suspicion I won't get a pimped Tor'kaht.

    Don't forget the T6 Ambassador and to brace against the Romulan complaint storm approaching....
    This program, though reasonably normal at times, seems to have a strong affinity to classes belonging to the Cat 2.0 program. Questerius 2.7 will break down on occasion, resulting in garbage and nonsense messages whenever it occurs. Usually a hard reboot or pulling the plug solves the problem when that happens.

    T6 Vor'cha!!! T6 Vor'cha!!! T6 Vor'cha!!! <3<3<3
    *Dances around maniacally* :D

    TBH, both of the new desigs are good. The Narendra Class looks sexy as hell and very modern and yet retains the very traditional Starfleet design. Very nice!
    The Vor'ral pretty much speaks for herself - it has that Klingon battlecruiser killer look and will be a strong contender to use instead of the classic Vor'cha. Which doesn't surprise me at all, Cryptic always nails Klingon ships when it comes to the design.

    No, 99% chance these will be C-Store ships with a 2-ship bundle at 4,000 zen and 20% off for the first weekend.

    Well, whilst pleased that the Ambassador/Vor'Cha fans are very probably finally having their wish granted, I can't help but feel offended here. There was a poll last October:
    https://mobile.twitter.com/BorticusCryptic/status/921547628835323904

    Or, if you don't want to click the link:
    T6 Vor'cha
    28%

    T6 Nova
    31%


    T6 Oberth
    13%

    T6 Ambassador
    29%

    I could say more - but I think I'd rather create a new thread instead.

    So...here is the venerated Vor'Cha. And....I don't like the way it looks.

    Is it decorated?? How odd.

    Aw... Don't you like that mighty hammer shaped head? It is a ship worthy of a Viking!-- I mean Klingon!
