Well, it's looking like all ships being phased out again.. have been building up my everests for FM and I see I'll now need Lionfish instead. If I don't have Lionfish does this mean I'll soon have no chance on FM? I remember why I quit before.. If I'm not coining, then I get way behind and can't hit anything. When I came back I was hopeful... old ships useless, but was at least given some new ships.. now they are becoming useless too. Rather than keep releasing ship after ship after ship, how about updating some old features? All the labs built on base have no point anymore, add some new researchable tech in there that fits current fleets. How about making armour and weapons that can be for different ships again? All current weapons seem to be ship specific. That takes any design aspect out of the game as you've decided what tech for us in advance!
I'll maybe keep playing a month more at most to see of any improvement, but find it highly doubtful!
