Ships ships..

My first T6 ever, the original and bad-@ssest Escort in the C-store, has become my main ship again and theoretically highest parser (the average parse is a little higher than my previous average).

Reman Vanity shields make it much easier to fly, and, I can appreciate the turn speed and 5 weapons up front in a whole new way with my better use of Intel Raider Flanking, and, what I use now for weapons boosts. Well, and, it has Pilot Maneuvers.

Lately, since abandoning my stint with Beams and Destroyers (FaW and Forget..it *does* have its appeal..) I've been bouncing between the Andorian Pilots and the fleet version of the Magee which has raider flanking *and* pilot maneuvers *and* a 21 turn rate, which, is the best turn rate you can get being Fed aligned. The Magee is a great Raider/Escort. Nearly perfect ship for my purposes. Great boff layout, too.

Losing that weapon up front on the Magee (has 4) instead of having 5 with the Pilot ships, and, having a much better turn rate than the Andorian Pilot is what made the original Pilot the winner. It's way easier for me to fly with the Reman Vanity shield and a couple years or so of flying practice, which, is very fun making. If we're fighting big bags of HPs.. I'd like to hug their rear shield and hull with a Magee, but, for the other 90% of the time I'd just rather have 20% more weapons up front for a consistent ~20% more damage where most of the damage is being dealt from - the front weapons - that can be shooting at ships coming from all directions and who will hopefully explode before I take the time to wheel around to the back of them.. I save some Intel Flanking for the big ships or when it's just convenient to get that bonus damage. The few extra HPs and shield were good for when I got the Andorian Pilots when they were new but now I can't hardly tell the difference. There's a significant difference in maneuverability, though. I think I get a tiny bit more out of the Boff seating, too.

If I could swap to a Magee every time … Dranuur Gauntlet popped... I'd jump out of my Pilot Escort in a heartbeat. But. Since we can't do that. I guess I'll random with the original Pilot Escort and save the Magee for special occasions, such as, when I just want to have Raider Flanking for awhile.

That's the biggest difference between the two ships. One has Raider Flanking and one has 5 weapons up front. Losing that weapon up front just can't make up for the Raider Flanking bonus in fast fights, which, are what make up the majority of most TFOs. Lots of fast fights with smaller guys and a few big bags of HPs (that generally the entire team are focused on) tossed in.

I want to fly a B'Rel.. but.. KDF.. My one KDF is Eng which doesn't fit what I want to do with a B'Rel, and, my C-store Ships (Traits..) are all Fed. So it's like, do I wanna open that can of worms for 1 ship...? Naw. Someday. Fastest turn rate in the game + enhanced battle cloak, gotta try that. It's missing a(n Ensign Boff) seat... but.. All the seats that it does have, are... Universal. Even the Commander seat.

Ships ships!

I don't see any new ones that I like, and I've been looking since the Andorian Pilots, but, my oldest (purchased) one feels brand new and that B'Rel looks fun too. The Magee will definitely see more use, too. For respectable deepsing without a lot of that darn aiming... it's hard to beat the Fleet Recon Destroyer and a boatful of beam arrays.

Summer (and the impending Labor Day weekend) are also the busiest moving time of the entire year.  I can vouch for this, as my son and I just moved, too. 

I'm also changing jobs within the next couple/few weeks.  Whew!   ;D

But CoX is just as great as I remembered it, and the in-game player base is just as great.

Long live CoX, and I wish Titan, Leandro and Homecoming all the luck in the world with NCsoft.  I hope it all pans out.  (And even if it doesn't, the code is alaready out there.  There's no turning back now!)

and its not like there is anything even remoretly out yet. We are eagerly awaiting fall 2018.

I was lucky. Just after I Started playing.... they made the original series intro and we were in original seriesland for awhile, which, we could stay in and that'd be fine with me. But we didn't, we moved to this and that and now we're moving on to what Angel said.

The only thing that caught my attention in the roadmap stuff, is, Patrols are getting some luv. I didn't look up the details of that luv and don't even know if they're available, but, Space Patrols are fun and it would be nice to have an additional reason to run them, so, fingers crossed that something good happens there.

~~~

I just want to add... dang. How tempting are Jem-Hadars? They have really nice ground skills.. They have a decent look.. And, they're halfway levelled already...

They're set to farm Rep.

Which, is about all I do.. Due to I run a f-ton of Randoms.

21,000 Omega marks.. An obscene amount of unrefined Dil...

It's alt time.

I have 2 fully geared alts, but, I want another toon just like my main. Which... I could do with a Jem... Just like *snap* that.

Except.. no SRO.

SRO is the only thing keeping me from rolling at least 1 - 3 Jems and RTFOing/Repping the bejeezus out of them.
