The ship has the best cooldown
Cool, the gift wrapper uses no power. In exchange, the damage it deals is also the lowest in the game... At least the firework platform deals some damage and has a good AoE. And snowformer actually dealt some serious damage in PvP and PvE
Ohh, not to forget, chicken can heal itself and has some serious damage mines and good damage bonuses.
Speed alone doesn't help me, otherwise i would see more explorers flying around and fighting... But i see no explorers, might it be because speed is useless thanks to vindicator? Or is it because of it's power penalty? Release a ship that has -75% power, -75% power regen but +400% kinetic damage and see how many people are using it.
Cool, cooldown! How much use does cooldown have if you can't kill enemies in a good amount of time? I'm level 8 on my newest alt, i have most weapons that usually deal a good amount of damage, yet i only can shoot 2 piercing shots, 8 sticky bombs, 7 acid blaster shots, 3 missiles and i can count up more. And it takes a very high amount of time to regain the energy, and using the gift wrapper slows down the recharge time even more. So it's NOT Zero power use
it just uses like 1 power per shot.
