Oh I don't know, they have some serious playtesting to do before the throw something like this into the mix.
So really, what we can take from this thread is that the Nebulon B Frigate is FREAKING AWESOME and we CAN'T WAIT for FFG to produce it so we can field this bad boy in an pic game. Am I right?
Just in playtesting my DP20 I get the sense that anything larger than the CR90 on the playfield with other huge ships is going to make the fighters look like the mosquitoes of the battle.
As I'm sure you can figure out, but fully energized, with an Engineering team,
this thing can fire 11 weapons on the second combat phase.
Need to tone down the Energy gain on this (As if the Rag-tag inept rustics needed more huge ships).
I get it is supposed to be a gunship, but the energy gain is way to high especially since it already has 4 primary firepower.
The CR-90 is a blockade runner, the DP-20 is a gunship.
Give the DP-20 the energy gain of the CR-90 at 1 and 2 speeds but only the energy gain of the GR-75 at 3 and 4.
That way the CR-90 does better at high speeds but the DP-20 will have as much firepower at the smaller speeds.
However I would say the DP-20 upgrades would look good on the Tartaran Patrol Cruiser.
The references that I have found say that the DP20
has more energy and more maneuverability than the CR90.
I don't see your reasoning for ever having the DP20 have less energy.
Perhaps if you elaborate.
