Hey all,

I just joined and was hoping to get everyone's opinion on the current ships and packages. I currently only have a Polaris and would like to know what I should look at to be my daily driver. Any advice is welcomed and appreciated.

Welcome Bravo, Zhou is the leader of this faction I'd like to help you but this is a secondary game for me. Some my be slow to reply but with enough time I hope you get the answers you seek.

Welcome. There really is a ship for almost any type of play style at this point. What do you want to do in the game and I can probably give you some suggestions on my experience with them?

I'm thinking that I want to do Escort/Support for the most part, and focus on scouting and Intel second. I got the Polaris as its the biggest ship I want to fly, and it offers a lot of versatility.

Wow that is an AWESOME ship, and quite large! I would say that based on what you were describing a Vanguard Warden or Freelancer DUR would be solid choices with a Constellation Aquilla or Carrack on the higher end of things. You will certainly be able to Escort/Support a LOT in an Polaris which is a Corvette class ship (up to 24 crew) with up to 216 CU of cargo + a landing pad for a fighter! ^_^

I have one as well - so we'll be able to fly in formation together! beer

How does the Vanguard handle? Should I get it with LTI?

I like mine, definitely a heavy-hitting ship (a bit tanky) - can fly solo or +1 in the gun turret. As always, you can just go with what you have and earn them in-game on release. The one I have is LTI because I picked it up when they were first introduced, but it does look like they are on sale right now WITH LTI.

If you want to hook up in-game and give mine a fly let me know, be happy to let you kick the tires of mine.

Yeah I would love to, I'm using a friends account until I decide which package to get. Username is MorganR. What time do you normally play?

Looks like Taxman is doing a good job give you some good advice on ships. Having a Polaris is a nice addition too. I believe he hops on during the weekends. May of us are at least waiting till 3.0 to play more.

I am easier to hook up with on the weekends as Zhou said (due to my time zone), but sure let me know when would be good for you - I am on today (pretty much whole day) and tomorrow is flexible (nothing specific planned).
