  • Hey @questerius, So believe it or not, but I've actually been working on my next series over the last month or two. But all this time I've been trying to complete the Specialization System on as many toons as I can so that I can get back into the Budget Build Series. That, and the fact that we undertook a pretty major…
  • Thank you for trekking it out and taking the time to comment! :smile: -Winters
  • I have also had this issue. I thought that it would have been fixed by now. I am "pretty" sure that I lost 2 slots with the update. Definitely 1 but I am almost 100% sure it was 2. -Winters
  • I am actually more than willing to listen and consider alternatives believe it or not. In this episode as with many of my episodes I give what I feel are very valid reasons for keeping the KCB. Anyone who actually takes the time to watch the episode would know that rather than just going off the STO Academy link. The thing…
  • Ahhh, yeah. It's "m e d i a" so it can go in the "m e d i a" section of the forums. It's also part of an ongoing series so that makes it qualified too. Of course, not to mention that you have to have permissions to create threads in the "Media Corps" section of the forums so that in itself prevents the "irrelevant posts".…
  • Hey @vetteguy904, so as @questerius said, I do post in the Shipyard as well as here in the Media Corps since the posts are relevant to both locations and each sub-forum has their own followers. Thank you for taking the time to trek out my video and for leaving a comment. I really appreciate your support! :smile: -Winters
  • I'm not sure that there is a direct KDF equivalent to this ship @smokebailey. Anything that comes close is different in one way or another or missing something that this ship has. Either the hanger bay or different Boff seating or different console layout, etc. -Winters
  • Hey @szerontzur, Sincerely, thank you for your comment and input! That is actually not a bad idea and something I never really considered before. I will admit though that I do like the title "Budget Builds" and I think that it is fairly catchy, ya know. I will consider your suggestion though for "Basic Builds" or see if I…
  • You will have to forgive me but I'm not sure what you mean by "click bait"!? As for your "Aston Martin" analogy, using a "cup holder" would be more accurate for comparing a "visualization shield" wouldn't it? Completely pointless and has nothing to do with the performance of the "Aston Martin". Sticking to the "Aston…
  • I was actually very surprised at how good you can get the turn rate on this bad boy when you're running the right stuff. The odd console, pilot spec, etc. A few other players have said about using the Nausicaan Torp too, and sure, it wouldn't require too many changes to add it into the build. I take it that you like it…
  • Build goes on ship, not ship on build.
  • I could not have put this any better myself. Thank you @jcsww for recognizing and articulating what this series is about. :smile: -Winters
  • It does exactly what is says on the tin. :wink: lol
  • Niiiice, I would probably use the Trilithium Enhanced Phaser Turret too and the Reinforced Armaments console if I wasn't using the Borg 2 piece. If I was to put a torp on the build I would most likely use the Dark Matter one too. Thanks for trekking out my video and for taking the time to comment. I appreciate your…
  • Hey @questerius, So unfortunately I was not able to recreate the build on STO Academy as the ship is not available on there yet. I was very surprised to find that it's not yet up there. I am gonna try and keep an eye on it though over the coming weeks but hopefully not months to see if/when the ship is added. Once it is I…
  • Hey @reyan01, Sorry for the really slow reply, but I did leave an explanation over on the other thread and responded to @seaofsorrows post that you quoted here. :smile: -Winters
  • Hey @seaofsorrows, First of all let me apologies for taking so long to get back to you on this. I have been so busy lately that this is honestly the first chance that I've had to reply to comments. We are currently celebrating our 7th Year Anniversary in the Priority One Armada and we always celebrate for the entire month,…
  • Hey @redwren89, Sorry for the slow reply! I have been so busy lately that I just haven't had a chance to check the forums. Anyway, I'm not sure that I fully understand what you mean!? Is there a particular weapon you're referring to? -Winters
  • Hey @questerius, Yeah, I seen that. Believe it or not I completely spaced about posting this one all week and I'm only just after seeing your post a little while ago and I was like, "agghhh, I never posted the video"! lol So thanks for the reminder! :wink: As for the Terran DHC, I think I would have used it if the 2 piece…
  • Oh yeah, the D.O.M.I.N.O console is a good console but like you said "a player might not have access to" it and that does cost an "Epic Phoenix Token" which is beyond a reasonable cost in my opinion. Which is why it probably won't appear in any of my builds. Well......maybe on the Bajoran Interceptor whenever I get around…
  • Hey guys, So to address some of the comments here, too many to use the "quote" feature for each one. So yes, the Temporal Disentanglement Suite never entered my mind as a possible option for the exact reason that @seaofsorrows I think said about this being an Aux2Batt build. I think it was also @seaofsorrows who said that…
  • Hey @trendor77, Thank you for trekking out my build and for commenting. Man, I have to tell ya that trying to do a build without any "fleet" or "rep" gear would be really hard and tying ones hands a lot! :smiley: lol However, I can tell you that having a "good" skill tree, "good" Boff abilities is often a big part of the…
  • Hey @westmetals, I'm really sorry about this. I was operating under the assumption that everyone knew how to view on YouTube. So, when you click play and you mouse over the screen the "Play Bar" appears on the bottom. On the right hand side, on that bar you will see "YouTube". Simply click on that and it will bring you to…
  • Hey @redwren89, so regarding the "Cold Hearted" Trait. Yeah that would be a good addition to the build for sure but not everyone has access to it. Starship Traits is probably the hardest thing about this series because in an ideal situation, I would prefer to use only traits that come from the Specialization System. But as…
  • Hey @duasyn, thank you so much for trekking out my build! You are absolutely right about the Plasmonic Leech getting nerfed, however that doesn't mean that it's useless. Believe me, if there was another consoles that would give more power I would use it. The Saucer Separation console can be fun for sure, it's not one that…
  • Thanks @seaofsorrows, I really appreciate the kind words! :smile: Regarding the Kinetic Cutting Beam, I freely admit that it is and will appear on like, 95% of my builds. I just love it. Plus as I said in the episode it's always handy to have on any build for the Kinetic Damage Endeavor. Anytime I get that one I always…
  • It's in the "description" of the video itself. Just view on YouTube and scroll down a little. :smile: -Winters
  • Greetings to all STO players, As some of you know, I was running a little competition for reaching 1,000 YouTube subs over the last two weeks. I want to thank all of you for the incredible support that I have received in getting me this far! The prizes up for grabs were a T6 Ship Coupon Gift Pack, a Walker-class Light…
  • Thank you very much @meimeitoo for the kind words! I figured that it was the least I could do since I have received such outstanding support for my channel. :smile: -Winters Awesome, and no you weren't too late. I will be announcing the winners later today on my Twitter account. Thanks a million for the support. I really…
  • No Problem @davefenestrator! Thank you for the support! :smile: -Winters To be honest @smokebailey, I originally wanted to do this to be done via YouTube but unfortunately it wasn't possible and I honestly never considered doing it on the Forums. It's a good idea and I will keep it in mind for the future. :smile: -Winters…
