    I'm not going to continue this discussion unless I have a good reason to do so. I've made my point, everyone else here has made theirs, and you just point to arbitrary, mostly meaningless numbers and complain about the second fastest boat being too slow.

    See ya later, everyone.

    If you click on the stats at the bottom when viewing ships that you own, you can see the more detailed values of their max speeds, or you can count the slots and slot points for red and green items.. together you can see how the ships compare in all things except acceleration.. enforcer certainly has the highest acceleration for instance.

    How come the enforcer has more total speed than a interceptor? Because it’s a big scam really. Yes, it’s a very good ship, but it simply isn’t good enough. Their is a lot of inaccurate descriptions of it to make it seem like it’s faster than it actually is ( food companies do this two )

    It has more hp, more blue slots, more weapons, more base speed than enforcer, just less yellow items... and less agility

    I think if any of the new ships need a little bit of a buff it would be reaper, I have seen plenty of great interceptors and guardians, but I have only seen maybe 2 or 3 good reapers.

    I´m willing to go custom with you with my interceptor to prove you wrong :) As I said it needs some skills to master, same goes for enfo and speedy. Its not too slow, it has all the best abilities of a shooter and a speeder without being op. Give it a slot of something more and it goes op. 2 turbos? why? maybe you should build a turbo that maxes the speed first before going interceptor. it only need 1 epic tier 3 or so to max speed.

    In a straight chase, I have completely overwhelmed enforcers with sheer burst in my interceptor. I've hunted speeders, assassinated fixers and gone toe-to-toe with defenders and shooters.

    The interceptor is strong. But it fulfills a role that hasn't existed in BB until now. It's not the fastest ship. It's not the most well-armored ship. It doesn't have the potential to carry ALL the weapons.
    But it CAN intercept.

    Ah, intercept. What a beautiful word.

    You cannot intercept someone with a speeder. An annoyance isn't an obstacle. You cannot intercept ALL classes with an enforcer, it simply lacks the firepower and health. You cannot obstruct faster ships in a shooter.

    It's the only ship in the game capable of going, "You. Shall. Not. Pass.", even if the opponent has oceans of HP and tons of burst and moves at fast speeds. That's the beauty of it! It's not MEANT to be any of the things you mentioned, it's meant to STOP the enemy dead in their tracks.

    It does that VERY well indeed, provided you know your weapons and placement. And yellows.

    1. Calling people idiots is not very nice, and I'll let you off with a warning since you're new here. Don't do it, and be nice.
    2. Nowhere is it said that the interceptor is a "special ship". Sure it needs ship pieces to upgrade, but no, it's just another ship. A unique one, sure. But not something gamebreakingly strong or anything like that.

    Giving it better mobility will make enforcers irrelevant, because their already endangered role of "moving bastion" and "speedforcer" will be done for. Giving it better HP will just make it a uber powerful dodgy ship. Nah, in my opinion, it's good enough as it is.

    Here, have a puppy:

    Doesn’t mean reaper needs a buff imo. I’ve been in battles against some double tape, double nitro reapers, and I’d argue that they’re even harder to kill than speeders at times because of how flighty they are.

    Alright you done arguing? If I had the opportunity, I'd lock this here and now.

    Would be unfair since the argument on one side still hasn't reached its conclusion. I do have my eye on it, however.
    Thanks!

    Updated the poll to remove the bias, i think the results speak for themselves, 15 to 1 on "interceptor does not need a buff"
