*2) An instant drain of all subsystem energy.

*This has no duration - enemy immediately begins regenerating energy lost from this instant effect.

*The new Stack Limit on Polaron procs applies ONLY to the duration-based aspect that reduces a target's max energy.

*The instant drain is not limited.

... what? ok so the new proc now have a cap of how many times it can be applied, though that number was not provided, and to make up for it the old proc is back on top of it?

is the drain amount split between these 2 parts of the proc? do they stack on top of each other for double the effect? how many times can it stack now? once? this is not enough information.

Sounds like a good change to me honestly...

If I read this right it means this

If I proc you once and your power is reduced by 45... your 100 goes to 55...
Now for 5 seconds you power can not go over 55... (right now it just keeps stacking that effect to infinity)

Now if I score another proc on you your power will go down by 45 again... but it will not be forced to 10 and stay there for 5 seconds as it does now. However it will go down to 10 and your ship will regen it back to the 55 until the proc wares off.

This is a good change, if the stack of the system cap reduction is 1... which I am going to bet it is seeing as they didn't give another number.

This means multiple procs are nice... but no one is going to get proced to ZEROs accross the board anymore.

I like it ... Honestly I stopped running polarons cause it seemed like a **** move to me.

i should make a list of things in game that would qualify for that mark :D a lot of things would get a mark of disapproval

The devs would be very sad indeed if they saw my Disapproval list.

You need to be on SOB TS more often. I never see you which is where I go when I wanna try to game with you before I log in anywhere.

I suppose i should stop in and say hi. It's been a few weeks. I'm on skype a lot and the MWO TS sometimes. Gotta say I'm liking it lots! Playing a missile boat support is quite a change for me.

Anyway, this change looks like it might be more complicated to implement than cryptic is capable of doing properly. I hope it's tested well. Only 2-1/2 days until it goes live.
