Cryptic did it again -- Antimatter spread
 
Here's how the power works:
  • You can't heal anybody. Your buttons do not work!
  • You can heal yourself
  • You cannot shoot anybody if you have them selected, your weapons will not work
  • If you deselect you can shoot at random objects (including friendlies)

This power is broken. It's a better ability to lock down a healer than scramble is, since you can still heal when scrambled. Ditto for locking down an escort. And all that it costs is a science console slot that would be doing next to nothing on a cruiser anyway.

Cryptic, this is why the entire PvP community is ****ed off at you :mad:

I'll second that also.

I think you can clear it with the zoom in f1 sci team. At least I think it worked for me last night.

I thought Antimatter Spread was just another confuse ability, and all confuse abilities work the same in the engine? Seems not so now.... At least maybe you can bug them to not act like that.

Can we just stop allowing these devices in PvP and be done with this? They never work out right. I predict it'll take weeks for a fix, and in the mean time, the PvP communtiy has to suffer again.

Hello again all!

Pardon my mmo noobnessesss, but is there not part of the cyptic staff that plays the game to test powers and whatnot? Who r theese people? Where do they get info and feedback? Is it just the tribble thread? I don't tribble much.

Just a year in the game here and I feel like this dept needs a better approach to balancing the game. You do NOT need an antimatter spread to beat a single npc ship. Such a good idea could be used for team tactics if it were implimented in the proper way.

So sad face right now. More broken stuff, noobs won't q up because of "premades". pve is a joke. Crafting has become a joke. The currency system is a joke. (dilithium anyone)

Kk sorry second rant today. Off soapbox again.

Most companies do have some sort of Quality Assurance, however I think Cryptic's QA team is akin to the Peggy guy you see in the Discover Card commercials.

Cryptic can I just have an anti confuse sci console?


OR a matter spread torpedo... engine bat + evasive away and shoot the torp out a rear tube **BOOM** Make the lamer cruisers pay for using the ability.
