DEVS: Nerf ramming please!
DEVS: Could you please do something about the Crystal Entity Fleet mission? Nerf this new thing called ramming. . It's seriously no fun for the rest of us who are playing. The entity dies in1-2 secs because of this! I'd like to be able to fire my phasers at least twice!

Bump, big time. This mission currently sucks for anyone who isn't an escort with ramming. Took my cruiser in there, waited 4 minutes for it to spawn, and when it did it was dead within seconds. I fired 2 phasers before it died. Got an engine battery as my reward.

Fix this! Make the Entity waaaaay tougher and don't base the reward on dps, cruisers and sci vessels never have a chance.

Yeah... this needs to change.

Get in, action starts, action ends. JUST THAT FAST. I didn't even have time to power on my engines.

This encounter is a joke in any sense.
I have yet to have a run of it where it didnt last more than 20 seconds Ramming speed or no.

Either nerf the drops or buff the mob hugely IMO :)

crystalline entity works alright... for a 5 man LtCom team.

the instances max out at 20, and half the people in them are commanders.

And why do you want to nerf a skill???

Maybe the Crystal entity should be fixed, but don't touch Ramming speed. It may be abused in the crystal entity, but to fix this, make the Crystal more resistant to ramming! (Its a hughe crystal... it should kill any ship-hull) but holy don't change ramming speed. Its such an awesome skill to blast away battleships which lost their shield.

Well if someone rams the crystal it should give off an electrical blast like a pizo electric crystal, the shockwave should obliterate any ship within 5km. Now that would be sweet.

I think calling for nerfs is pathetic, nerfs wreck games, don't like something well 2 darn bad, do something else

You want to nerf a skill because of one stupidly designed fleet mission? :rolleyes:

Ramming speed itself is ridiculous because of the absense of a proper death penalty. There is no reason not to ram.
