Yeah, that suggestion was not entirely serious.
But at this point it really feels like they smashed the assets of a game like that into another type of game and hope nobody notices.
I read the stats of the new ships. Still not impressed.
They won't be a game changer by themselves, but get a high synergy effect from using DOminion gear and support from other Dominion ships.
I wouldn't want to go up against a premade including 2-3 bug ships, 1-2 escort carriers and a carrier dread captain with bug ship wings.
