TIE’s ShipBusters talk STO Ship Tier Revamp with Suricata!
Xander and the ShipBuster crew sit down with Suricata and talk about the Revamp that he has proposed on the STO forums HERE.
For quite some time now many people have had issues with the current ship tier system. It’s also becoming apparent from the C-store that the develoeprs are having issues coming up with new ship layouts (or knowing where to place them in the tier system). My idea is to basically revamp the entire system with the addition of 2 new ship items (the warp core and computer core), these items are responsable for the base stats of a ship. Ships would still get unlocked for use at the same levels as now, however, players would not be forced to change ships all the time as they rank up.
I’ve created the idea as an image so the system can be explained better than me writing a wall of text:-
This is a WiP idea and some stats are placeholders (not tuned for balance). I apologise to the Klingons for using Starfleet ships for thisidea, it would port over the Klingon ships quite easily.
I know this revamp would require some serious work, but, if done correctly, it would open up the players choice of ships (which many have been screaming for) as well as open up many new possabilities to the developers for new items aswell as make it easier to create new C-Store ships and items. Using this system would give way more leeway for future expansions of content as well.
Take a listen as we discuss our love of STO in a casual and friendly atmosphere.
