Devs, when will T5 become undead?

This question has probably been asked a thousand times, but I was curious if there are any future plans to help make T5 more accessible to more players (or at least playable by the "elites"). It seems odd that this class of ship was created that no one can play. Like having a dead arm, there is an entire aspect to this game that is unusable at the moment. And it seems to me that nothing will change unless something is done from the top down.

Have we heard any word from this inside about this? Perhaps it is on the ticket to be addressed this year?

I think were supposed to just play t4 then once in a while we play t5 lose a bunch of money and go back to playing t4. I believe is how they want it. t4 is the normal and t5 is a blue moon special.

I didn't get a Tier 5 ship, but I totally agree with you at this point.
Getting T5 ship is very hard, but you can not play with it.
What a paradox we have here!

I have had my first T5 for months now (two in the hangar at the moment) and I haven't been able to fly it once in a real match smile I know there are other people out there, who have T5s as well, but gettting enough people together is just so difficult. After the patch 1.7.0 came out, I was able to try my babies in a Proving grounds match. Excitement, yay! Except it gets really boring really fast, because the AI ships are just so stupid to provide any kind of challenge. The game mode is supposed to queue up other players as well, and it does, it works on veteran. But again, where do you find other people queuing up for Legendary match? (Please don't say go to Discord. I know how it works. An online multiplayer shouldn't have to rely on 3rd party chat apps.)

Seems like there were a few T5 matches this night. I think T5 becomes alive when the maintenance mechanic is removed.

Tonight we held the 3rd, 4th, and 5th ever Legendary games with around 13 Tier 5 ships in battle.
There are well over 50 players now with Tier 5s to date. However, some prefer not playing Legendary because the cost of losing is 3500-4000 credits per match if on the losing team and not top 3 in battle.
For a preview of a full on Tier 5 battle, you can view a video I uploaded to Youtube tonight in 1080p, all settings maxed. I'll do it in 4k next time! You may wish to lower the volume as it was a bit chaotic before we separated into different voice channels in the next game.

Those desiring Legendary play with only Tier 4s must be in a squad with another Tier 5 player or you will be matched up in Veteran at the risk of Legendary credit loss, without the additional 3% bonus.
To answer your question about 'how to' get Legendary matches not involving AI, sadly, the answer is still Discord. Takes around 17-20 people minimum because there is always something that will come up.
Below is a sneak preview of the action we had tonight with a group picture of 16 people in Legendary game play.
Enjoy the fireworks in the last picture!

Ugh, watching that video makes it even more bitter-sweet. Its sweet to see you guys getting together, to be sure. But it is bitter for the rest of us who were not there. We really need to get better organized to have regular (weekly?) Legendary matches---if this is the way its going to be.

Clans maybe?

i've been longing so long to be a part of those matches, we really need a better system to organize this. Or add everyone with a t5 vessel, if most are online then you can at least suspect that legendary battles are being organized and check on discord what's up

T5 will become undead once the maintenance system is changed. (This is in the works.) Since they've announced the changes I've started focusing on unlocking T5's rather than maxing T4's in preparation. So hopefully soon!

Legendary fleet not working because no reason for T4 to sign in. Improved matchmaking should allow to play Veteran pool games IF there are enough T4-T5 ships present in queue. Basically when you go Veteran in T4 there is a slight chance that you will play cannon-fodder in T5 rumble. It will stimulate players to get T5 and give a better chance to find a game for your T5 toy. Legendary queue will basically allow to play full T5 matches (cos no one with T4 sign in it anyway atm)
