I have a Kraken, and bought it because I liked the idea of a big, capital ship that could host several other ships. Didn’t really want it as a fighter/ combat ship, more as a mobile base for friends and family and/or an org. However, thinking about it recently I don’t think it’s likely that I’ll have a whole host of friends to really make use of it properly and am concerned also about the number of people required to just operate it, plus the (in-game) cost. Feels like a lot of bother.
I have a Polaris in my buy backs and was thinking maybe I should melt the Kraken and get the Polaris back, then use that as a (smaller) mobile base instead. Will the Polaris be easier than the Kraken to run with a smaller crew? Will they have comparable running costs? I just think maybe the Polaris is a better option than the Kraken, even if I’m not going to be that combat-focussed, because it’s versatile and can be used for other things and more manageable.
So could do with some guidance from people who know better than me.
