Eh, squadron is fine. Not my favourite rule and big unreliable damage always seemed more of a laser thing, but I guess boring reliability wasn't getting the job done for mass drivers and it's not like they cause trouble. I don't think the corvettes needed it on top of the A2A buff (though it only really matters to Medeas and desu any day they get fucked is a good day to me), but Osaka and Rio definitely needed a leg up to compete with their laser brethren.
As for Obsidian, I've never found it to be particularly stronger than the other heavy cruisers, it's just the cheapest particle boat that isn't absolute dogshit. And considering the buff relates purely to narrow arc weapons free (while Obsidian's biggest strength was always a lack of reliance on WF) and comes with a price increase, I don't think there's much to worry about there.>Also, there's some ships which are in a really bad place which adepticon does nothing to help
This is definitely true though. There's still more work to be done, for all factions (except maybe UCM, they're doing alright). There's a few PHR ships that are still lacklustre as well despite the buffs, and the assault troopship situation really ought to be addressed. The Resistance custom ships also leave a lot to be desired, I think finding a good balance for them is going to be a long and arduous process. Then in Shaltari there's FUCKING Jade.
