    i do like the 5% range but i literally am on the last ship of a nuc fleet im building so might still pass maybe if it was 10% with 5% range goes to 95.55 which is same as arbalest well .5 over defense are decent id say if your a mid level or new player go for this either wait for cyro launcher or use d 92 u up to you its nice but with just building a nuc fleet prob will pass :/

    Tomorrow, in the brief. 

    The list is the one part that changes the most closest to the event launch. I don't like to post it early in case anything changes drastically. 

    If you have technical questions, please submit a ticket here.

    *94, +5% makes 99. **** phone.

    So if you build the new hull around speed, with the new weapon, you could theoretically kite a crusader fleet...easier said than done I know...but dang, it just might be a solution when put in capable hands.

    Funny you mention that. There's talk around the office of trying to implement a VXP transfer feature that would let players move existing VXP or ranks to other ships. It would probably have some sort of time cost associated to it, but this would let players with your situation avoid that pain. Thoughts?
    This is a very interesting thought.  Maybe... would need more info on the approach to this before giving constructive feedback.

    Can you explain the launcher supercharge please I'm not getting it. And it looks pretty good.
    If you dont know what launcher super charge is by now then you need to google "BP Professor" weapons and specials and find out yourself...

    Love it except for the "some sort of time cost associated to it". Didnt we spent enough time ranking the other ship?

    You didnt notice that range on new launcher is 94 base and overpowered in everyway and its even superlight so you can go nuts. this is gonna be just like the first week of arbs again, WITHOUT the big shockwave this is one of the top weapons in the game easy.  with the big shockwave i cant believe these numbers slipped through




    THIS JUST KILLED BASES SOOOO DEAD  NO MORE 4tiles +2 walls

    Yeah, it's in very early "hey, let's throw this idea around" stage. I only assume there'd be a cost to transferring. There are literally no other details than "VXP transfer: maybe?"

    That's really interesting. Maybe the idea is you move your experienced crew from one ship to the next? It would definitely help limit the 'chores'. I think you would still have ships to rank even with that ability in place, and I can't think of a way it would unbalance the game. So, yes please!

    94 range + 10% range bonus on Enforcers, should be interesting.

    With all campaigns open to all players...I'm sure you can grind something out...now the amount of seat time required might be a bit much, but it'll be doable for all.

    The Launcher has a base range of 94. 5% of 94 is 4.7, game rounds up, 99 range. Not 95.

    Doom has confirmed it's the Fusion Cruiser, not Carrier, and pics of the new hull and launcher plus stats have already been posted in this thread.
