There's a definate advantage to doing so, it's just more of a personal one.

Still isn't pay to win, mind. Pay to gear-up-moderately-faster perhaps.
Wait. Cartel ships are fully upgraded ? I wasn't aware of that.

Not fully upgraded. They just have the 10% req bonus from the beginning, you don't need to master them to get it.
They have just the basic stuff with zero upgrades.

Okay. If they had been, I'd have gone back on my words about Pay-to-win.

so much this. perhaps if the OP had taken the time to read the ship description, he would not have made this thread. the CM ship are NOT an advantage outside of being "mastered".

really OP, you should read ship descriptions before you open your mouth.

1) if you don't like it, don't queue
2) if all you think GSF is is doing circles, then you don't really know what the point of certain class ships are. and since you don't seem to know, you REALLY don't need to QUEUE anyways.
3) go back to doing... what ever it is that you were doing before GSF, because you obviously don't get it.

Cartel Ships are already considered "Mastered" normally you would have to fight enough to upgrade one of each component to max level to Master that ship, thus gaining the extra 10% ship/fleet req.

I do think the ships are balanced, I do think there is a steep learning curve, and i do think the point is to have a ball .

That being said ... Match-making is horrid. Newbies with basic ships going up against people with upgraded Gunships is a horror. 80% of the matches tend to be one sided. and you can only que 4 from you guild, if you qure more you may end up fighting each other, vs working as a team

Most people will watch your back automatically , as you are a team in these games, however a slew will not, they will just ignore you as you fly by with someone on you, that you cant seem to shake.

All and all its FUN, but cant be frustrating, at the same time, IF you manage to que as 2 4 man teams and end up on the asme side.. *(has happened twice for my guild) its Epic.. teamwork and Squad leaders , people moving as a squad and taking down objectives, its prolly one of my favorite parts of the game. Than again .. I might hit my head one too many times

I just do GSF for the quests that come for enduring it. GSF matchmaking is pretty bad. I have screenshots of all new players with only two ships vs an entire team (or nearly so) with 4-5 ships.

The best thing would be a "kiddie pool" for people who only have 2-3 ships in GSF before being thrown to the wolves.

In answer to the actual topic question. For me it is a light hearted diversion from the ground pvp.
