Retro Set Change, bad idea
The retro set is now 3pc, Deflector, impulse, and shield, 2pc Hull heal 3pc SHield heal AND Tractor.

Now first we are losing the ability to run a good shield in combination with this heal. 2nd, We are losing the ability to run 2pc borg with 2 pc anything else. I think the consol should remain part of this set, and an alternative make it also include in the (dreadful) weapon set.

Dont believe me? Look.

This change is not good, focus on BOOSTING MACO and Omega Not nerfing Borg.

This is a post generaly recapping what most ppl will think when this goes live,

EDIT: I use regnerative shields, this change hits me very little compared to most ppl in STO.

Ah, goodie. I can finally be free of old tech. I'll be getting full Omega now, and with the new rep change this will be easier!

I say just reduce the cooldown on the borg tractor beam and leave the 4 pc set........then again the borg tractor is ****

Y'm glad for this nerf. MACO shields + 3pc borg is the commonest zombie build because its so OP. Highest cap shields, and crazy regen? Really?

At least now 2pc + MACO shield brings balance to the Federation. Good job Cryptic! :D

No, the change is a good one, for exactly the stated reasons.
Finally no more 3pc borg with ueber shields.

cynder2012 10-16-2012 09:16 PM

Then a link or SOMETHING that says cryptic is doing this in the first place.

I think the shield heal should have been 4pc and the Tractor could have been 3pc, The probelm here is the loss of the ability to have the hull heal with another 2pc set.

I do thik zombie setups need to be nerfed, However they removed avery viable tactic, Which discourages the other sets even more.

khayuung 10-16-2012 09:33 PM

Not really. I'd just see more people with full MACO. Which isn't completely unbeatable?

You have to choose now. More speed? More shield cap?

For me, the choice is obvious.


brokenmirror2012 10-16-2012 09:36 PM

1 reason i should drop 2pc borg for full MACO/Omgea 2pc Omega is the only useful 1.

THe problem being even after the nerf Borg is STILL better then th other 2 xD...

They need to boost MACO and Omega And KHG, nerfing borg has not worked out.

EDIT: For the reccord i use regenerative shields, this change is meh to me.

That is a very bad idea from Cryptic, and it shows again that they don't understand their own game.
