I see a lot of higher level players using a lot of starting ships and mention that some of them are their favorite ships. My question to all of you is simply... Why? What's the draw? Less bonuses, if any and no base stat boosts. What's the purpose of this?

To keep us from getting bored with the very strong few end game ships, and cause it was the first ship a person ever got, and what you mentioned, there isn't as many bonuses or stats, so a bigger challenge to make usable. Those are my reasons at least.

To have fun, at lvl 150 with lvl 150 arts you can make most ships OP, so you use what ever you want to have fun. If you need to do some serious leveling or farming you will always go to the ship that is the most efficient. At those levels you can also have several ships upgraded.

I use Golden heart for pvp, not because it is the best, but because I like it. I use blade for most PVE farming because it is the most efficient way to kill things. I use assasin, vindi and some more ships to test out builds and weapons and for fun.

I am currently at 220 milion steel, and I know those who have a lot more.

Dont forget this is a game with the purpose of having fun.

I had a higher damage output with the astro falcon than that piece of utter joy. Whoever made the spy-1 deserves to be flipping hugged

The Spy-1 is obviously meant to be a kinetic ship. Are you seriously calling it "worse than a starter ship" because it doesn't work well with non-kinetic weapons?

Also, using that kind of language is never necessary.

Apart from the -80% to other types of damage, even if I have fully upgraded shield and health arts from an enemy like the regius, I can still get one shotted by a player 20 levels below me because the shite-1's base health and shield are abysmal.

Abysmal?!

The Spy-1's shield is very good. It's better than every ship in its price range, and it's only slightly less than that of the Retro, a ship that costs nearly 1000 flux more. In fact, the only other ship that has better base shield than it (other than the Tanker, which is slow, has no damage bonuses, is getting nerfed, and still costs a lot more than the Spy-1) is the Judicator Prototype, which costs 5980 flux.

As its stats clearly indicate, it's meant to be a shield ship, so don't complain if you try to use health% artifacts with it and don't like the result.

We use horrible ships as a way to show off our strength. The spy-1 however is an excellent well rounded mini judicator. Personally I prefer the prophecy - I'm an energy guy.

This video wouldn't be as cool if I had used the nexar blade.

Then either your artifacts are bad, or you haven't put enough steel into shield upgrades. Either way, it's your fault, not the ship's.

Huh? We're talking about the Spy-1 here, a ship with a shield stat of 10 but a health stat of 1. Trying to use a health-to-shield setup on it wouldn't work well at all.
