Star Trek Online shows off upcoming Tier 6 Battlecruisers

You can also play a spaceship.
You can upgrade older ships in Star Trek Online, but your upgraded Tier 5 Battlecruiser just isn’t the same as a Tier 6 version of the same ship. It’s a bit disappointing. Or it would be, if not for the fact that you can soon get a Tier 6 version of the ship from the C-Store, complete with the options to use the look of the lower-tier cruiser for all three factions.

All three ship styles feature the Ablative Hazard Shielding console and the Emergency Weapon Cycle trait to be unlocked, with the former providing a last-ditch bit of durability and the latter offering a larger buff to Emergency Power to Weapons. Yes, you’ll need to grab all of them from the store again, either in a bundle with the three of them or individually. Still, if you loved your Tier 5 incarnation, you might want to consider picking one up.

Not that i mind them making so many cash shop ships…but i do wish they were more reasonably priced.  Spending upwards of up to 90 to 180 bux on sets of ships is a bit extreme.  I’m just thankful i only bought 1 t6 ship and thats enough at least to play with for now.

CastagereShaikura Faith77 The fact Whales even exists as a marketing term shows perhaps one of the biggest problems with free to play publishers. All they see are wallets instead of people, and only wish to attract the biggest, fattest wallets. It is also why their games slowly shrivel up and die, turns out when the only people having fun are the ones with large disposable income they leave, and when they leave the ones with the large disposable income get bored because they have no one to play with.

GoJammit CastagereShaikura Faith77 As long as you keep buying the new ships with no way of earning them in game then i guess its fun.

CastagereShaikura Faith77 I do like the game, and I don’t really mind them selling ships. It’s just the whole way they handled T6 has rubbed me the wrong way.  Many casual players who wouldn’t normally purchase ships, made purchases because they figured a T5 ship would be a one time investment since they were the endgame ships at the time of purchase.  Now with T6 and the level increase, those pricey purchases are pretty much useless now, unless you make another purchase for a ship upgrade.
I purchased an Avenger already last year for $20 during the ship sale, I’m not spending $30 more just for a new skin, stats, and a trait, especially when there’s nothing stopping them from just introducing T7 ships a year from now, and repeating the whole shady cycle all over again.

Ooh look, you can buy more P2W gear after getting burned on your last set of P2W gear. No thanks. This sort of thing is why I’m done with Cryptic & PWI games.

Faith77 The game is just full of whales. Not even worth playing if you are not one of them anymore.

They really should offer people who already purchased the Avenger/Mogh a year ago, some type of discount to re-purchase these T6 versions they slapped new skins on.
But the fact they keep on coming out with T6 versions of T5 ships at $30 a pop, means there are still some suckers who are throwing money at them to re-purchase those ships, so I guess I can’t really blame them for taking advantage while they can.
