    That is kind of what I was thinking, but I clearly haven't had enough coffee yet... lol

    Thanks all!

    I have the Delta Operations Pack, Temporal Starter, and Gamma Starter on my account already. Have the Orion Blackguard Flight deck, Archon Intel Assault cruiser, Valiant Tactical Escort, and Andromeda Exploration Cruiser for individually acquired ships already.

    May go the Alita Heavy Escort (Really like my Akira and Armitage), Europa, Kor, Malem, Narendra, Reliant, Shran, Theseus, or Yamato. Wish I could get the Kamarag as a tier 6 currently, Still have the Teir 5 retrofit from the old Anniversary event it was a reward from.

    Just need to decide which faction is the highest priority for myself then narrow it down from there. But with 9 Fed, 3 KDF, 2 Rom, 1 Jem Hadar, and 14 Cross-faction tier 6 ships unlocked on account for my toons I already have a large enough selection so no real rush to decide yet.

    Decided to go with the Shran Light Escort.

    Compared to other Pilot Ships that I already own (Kuthar, Ajax) it's not that great.. but it does have a very flexible BoFF layout, and a trait that I can make use of.

    When it came out, I didn't have much interest just because I have better ships already, but if I can eventually get it free just for playing the game.. that's a different story.

    At 1250 now. Coming up to the halfway point.
    At this point i am leaning towards the Klingon ship, but it is not yet set in stone.

    As its free I might go for the andorian chimichanga escort for the grav well trait on my LTS, mainly because I dislike the idea of a sci trait being lumped into an escort and don't spend zen on ship I'd never otherwise fly just for a trait.

    For f2p more likely to be the vanguard carrier as its faction agnostic and easily the best store carrier.

    Think I hit 1300 today but with both weekends being a bonus one its got me wondering if that will be the norm going forward.

    Let me warn you, the andorian escort is addictive. It's an awesome ship. Still fly both the Tier 5 and 6 versions.

    Hit 2000 today. Might as well resume the talk about which ship to grab.
    Has anything changed in your opinion?

    Last Thursday the journey towards getting enough coupons for a free T6 ship started.


    Since the coupon cannot be used as a discount on a 12k pack and i don't really fancy any of the AoY, Vanguard or Disco designs and since yet new to be released ships will be excluded my list is brought back to either
    - https://sto.gamepedia.com/Aelahl_Light_Warbird_Battlecruiser
    - https://sto.gamepedia.com/Intel_Assault_Cruiser
    - https://sto.gamepedia.com/Jupiter_Class_Carrier

    For those who actively choose to participate, which ship will you choose?

    Edit: forgot about the Tellerite and Suliban FDC
    https://sto.gamepedia.com/Tellarite_Pralim_Flight-Deck_Assault_Cruiser
    https://sto.gamepedia.com/Suliban_Silik_Flight-Deck_Assault_Cruiser

    Already have the Orion one which is nice.
    https://sto.gamepedia.com/Orion_Blackguard_Flight-Deck_Assault_Cruiser
    Downside is their "unique" look which doesn't really appeal to me. The fighters and trait are very interesting in today's spam filled battlefield.

    ^The problem with most of these is that they are part of larger sets...so in the long run you end up spending more to get each individual ship vs. the entire set together.

    I purchased the Orion FDC separately since i really did not like the visuals of the Federation and Romulans ships. To gain access to the trait the Tellerite ship could be useful.
    Still mostly leaning towards the klingon https://sto.gamepedia.com/Negh'Tev_Heavy_Battlecruiser but i haven't really looked over the various options lately.

    Gaining access to the wide angle torpedo and trait from this ship is also tempting:
    https://sto.gamepedia.com/Intel_Assault_Cruiser

    Choices.

    I do indeed have everything I want at the moment so I hope I can use the tokens for ships yet to be released.

    looking like I will be settling on the Valiant, fro some Sci-scort withering barrages...

    one question though... Entwined Tactical Matrices... Does Withering Barrage affect the scatter volley duration?

    I actually have the baby t1 escort on one of my PC accounts but my main issue is that escorts have never really grabbed me as being fun to play on PC. Maybe if we had proper controller support it'd be different as I've found that to be a more enjoyable experience even despite the awful clunk of the ui and rather slapdash execution of the console port.

    A new T6 Science Warbird. No new ones in forever.

    A new T6 Warbird. Nope, try again.

    A T6 Nova. Nope.

    I know, I'll just hang on hoard it until one of those is made, so that Cryptic can hop into my personal bank account and delete it like they did with event vouchers.

    In which case, probably a Tactical Scimitar for alt account, and main account Gagarin for its starship trait although useless protonic console that would even harm my Harpia's protonic/exotic hybrid build. So the Support Cruiser > Gagarin for my purposes since it has a useful console, looks really cool, and has a good starship trait although less useful for science since feedback pulse was nerfed even with starship trait boost along with embassy sci consoles.

    Hathos looks cool but it's a poor version of the faeht with a ship-bound console along with a heavy experimental weapon that requires more upgrading on my 3 main romulans that probably performs worse than other experimental weapons anyways, and with a starship trait that benefits ambush bonus flanking for only 8 sec in a game filled with swarms of low HP cannon fodder or bosses that resist it all anyways.

    Still not sure. I am more and more against splitting a bundle, so the Jupiter is a favorite, but I'll have all summer to think about it some more.

  • seaofsorrowsseaofsorrows Member Posts: 10,913 Arc User
    I was going with the Shran, but I picked that up during the last ship sale using excess Dilithium.

    I am not sure what I will go with now, either the Thozyn for Promise of Ferocity (though I don't really need more traits) or maybe the Klothos MW Cruiser for one of my KDF characters. The Europa is also a possibility.

    I pretty much have everything from the C-Store that I want.. I'l likely end up using the coupon for an admiralty ship or a ship I want for cosmetic unlocks on another ship.

    I think the Shran for me now. I was going to get one of the Pilot Escorts but I'm keaning towards getting the pack now. So the Shran it will be. I'm going to try a dual beam bank set up on it

    You should be able to. Though new ships would be on the black list at first, they should fall off it after some time.
    Now a LTS and loving it.

    I'm still unsure as to what I'll do with mine - my current favourite would be one of the Eclipse, Chronos or Phantom.
  • echattyechatty Member Posts: 5,721 Arc User
    The Eclipse and Chronos are great ships. I have both. A friend has a Phantom and she seems to like it, though says it a bit squishy, which is natural for the type ship it is.

    Thanks.

    I'm currently leaning towards the Eclipse - it looks to have pretty good base turn rate for a cruiser, and I've never really played around with the Intel powers so those would be fun to explore as well.

    For most of the time since I started playing, I've favoured the cruisers (Galaxy, Sovvy, Oddy, Gal-X et al), but more recently I've found myself going in more of an escort/destroyer direction (Klein, Theseus, Denorios, Ouroboros et al), hence I think if I went for the Phantom it would just be more of the same and I kind of feel like flying something a bit bigger again. The main point against the Chronos for me is the aesthetic - I'm a bit of a Space Barbie obsessive, so looks are a factor in my decision and something about the Chronos just doesn't do it for me, although I don't doubt it's a very capable ship.

    All of that being said, the Eclipse is feeling like the natural choice at the moment but that will probably change back and forth multiple times before I get the token!

    Just grabbed the Arbiter with my coupons, was mainly for the trait but surprised by how much fun im having flying her. Nice turn rate always makes the pew pew more enjoyable :smiley:

    Just want to say thanks to Cryptic & the staff for the ship as well, its muchly appreciated.
  • echattyechatty Member Posts: 5,721 Arc User
    I've considered the Arbiter myself.

    The Chronos is a very capable ship once you help the turn rate some. I fly it on a couple of my toons. Intend to fly the Ouroborous on one of my tac toons.

    Still, the Chimesh is heading the pack cause I do like to use gravwell sometimes.

    The Arbiter is good and has a good trait. It was my second ever c-store ship.
  • echattyechatty Member Posts: 5,721 Arc User
    I do like battlecruiser/destroyer-type ships over escorts. Perhaps the Arbiter would be a better fit.

    Eclipse is a pretty nice ship. Makes a good beam boat if that's what you're after. It has a good turn rate for a cruiser and excellent inertia rating. Also, access to Intel and a cloak is nice to have. The trait is ok if you need something defensive just nothing all that fantastic. I don't see many of them around anymore, so that's actually another thing that makes it kinda cool. It's really best used as an Aux2Bat style Beam Boat.. but it does do that very well. If that's what you're looking for, I doubt you'll be disappointed.

    Arbiter is a great ship. I know a lot of people just get it for the trait, but on the fed side it's one of the most versatile ships you can get. It does all types of energy weapon builds and does them amazingly well. Rather it's front facing, broad siding.. whatever, the Arbiter is fantastic. I think it's an absolutely stellar ship and tough as nails.

    I can only underline what @seaofsorrows recomended. If you dont have the arbiter yet it would be the one to pick. Good ship and you get the best trait in game for all your fed side chars. :)
