    I don't have that drop down. I guess because I haven't downloaded any games through arc.

    I don't even see any games listed under my account. Is there a way to get a game listed without using arc?



    EDIT

    I gave in and downloaded ARC. The code listed above isn't working for me.

    Didn't work for me, and went through ARC. Either a mistake in it or it's dead/maxed

    Well, there is the ship I'm getting!!!

    BTW, lately I've seen this green shield bubble in space battle, anyone know what that is? It's a handy thing.

    I'm thinking the Guardian is a day 1 purchase for me even if it has mediocre stats it looks substantially better than the hideous t6 "intelligence" ships for the federation. The Klingon and Romulan ships are good looking as those are hard to screw up but the new fed ships aside for the Guardian are atrocious.

    I'm leaning towards it but am probably going to wait for the stats first.

    I'm interested in the Dauntless myself, but am waiting for the stats before committing myself to it. It will have to be good to jump ahead of my Vesta, which after the upgrade has eleven console slots, 3 Engineering, 4 Science and 4 Tactical.

    Flying a Science Vista. Is the T6 worth getting or waiting to retrofit my ship?

    Me too. Plus I want to see how much zen it will cost. I'll probably only buy one or two T6 ships before the end of the year.

    Its clear Cryptic wants to double dip the playerbase by having them first upgrade to T5-U when Delta Rising launches, and a second time when they release a new T6 ship every few months for the next few years.

    The fact that lockbox and lobi ships were only upgraded to T5-U rather than to T6 suggests that eventually, everyone will have to get a T6 ship or miss out on new T6-only ship powers.

    So yeah eventually we'll all have to upgrade to T6, but personally now is not the time. The current batch of T6 ship is woeful and more will be released in the coming months. Perhaps the winter event reward will be a free Breen T6 ship. So for me, I'm taking a wait and see attitude. If a newly released T6 ship matches the capabilities of my current ship, then yes I'll probably upgrade to it.

    I have to agree with this. My upgraded Vesta has been able to handle everything with minor bumps on Tribble. I am sure that will improve further as my gear gets upgraded to Mk XIII and then Mk XIV. I am only 56 on Tribble currently, and have been alternating between normal and advanced difficulty levels and am very competitive.

    I am curious to find out if my T5-U can handle the Level 60 Elite content. That may be where I upgrade to a T6.

    According to the Devs it should, as thats really what you need the T5-U or T6 for.

    Despite what they've said, I think you're going to need a T6 ship with MK XIV gear that is at least UR or Epic to be competitive playing at level 60 at the Elite difficulty level STFs. Our T5-U ships will be fine at Normal or Advanced level.

    We'll see. The other day when we played Infected Elite with T3 ships we were mostly fine and completed the mission with optionals faster than most pugs.

    So there will be wiggle room depending on team.

    Today's Elite will be DR's Advanced. The new Elite is supposed to be a whole new level of toughness.
