Promotional item scaling.
I was just wondering how many people out there are like me and would like to see the devs take a look at some of the retail promotional items that currently don't scale with your level (i.e. tr-116, chromodynamic armor, etc.) and change them to where they are at least decent at higher levels?

I don't think they should be so powerful that they're better than anything else out there but it would be nice if they could function as a solid back-up item.

Would like that very much, also for the Automated Defense Turret please.
The Phaser Sattelite Turret scales to your level AFAIK, it's just a bad item to waste a Slot on anyway (huge cooldown).

in addition those Tactical Consoles could be remade to fit into the Ships Device Slot (where the batterys go!)

also i would like if the TR-116 would get into the C-Store at some point,
i believe i have everything else but i wasn't able to get that one.
I keep scanning ebay for it but seems like they are not existing anymore :-(

It would be nice to see some of my pre-order items scale with me, particularly the Automated Defense Battery.

Agree... pls help to add scaling to:
~Automated Defense Battery
~Other items like TR116, Multi-Spatial Personal Shield, Chromodynamic Armor, etc

The feeling of pride in acquiring such a self-leveling equipment would go a long way in keeping players keep playing STO, don't underestimate this factor!

While I can agree with most of the promo items scaling... I have to wonder, am I the only one who finds the ADT as useful at VA as it was at ensign? :p Best HYT/Tricobalt killer around. ;)

They do have the tech available though, we've seen that with the Breen/Deferi equipment scaling, so it should be possible, if they can justify some extra dev time towards making it so.

I've really only used it at RA and up, once I got an Assault Cruiser with the third Tac. console slot.

Oh, that would be nice... I realy hope they can do this sooner rather than later...

The TR-116 and the Multi-Spatial shield would be good items to start with, and maybe adding this other items aswell...

/signed on the scalling (and why not? The blue phasers from the Connie scale, I'm told.)

/signed also on changing items such as the Automated Defense Turret and the Phaser Sattelite Turret to load in the Device slot (like a Red Matter Device) instead of using a valuable console slot.

Still, with the exception of the Borg BO, all of the vendor's 'perks' were designed to be fixed and mostly out grown by the time yiou hit Lt. Cmdr. Changing these items to 'scale' with your character would be a disservice to the STO community, especially when many of these 'perks' are no longer available for purchase...

Would you care to elaborate on how you think making these items scale would be a disservice Otaku?

And as for these items being unavailable, I can say that the only item mentioned in this thread so far that I don't have is the multi-spatial shield (where does this one come from anyway) and I got the tr-116, the chromodynamic armor and the phaser satellite within the past two weeks and from their retail source.
