Emergency Power to Shields has been removed from the category cooldown shared with Reverse Shield Polarity and Extend Shields.


i personally feel the emergency power to shields SHOULD still share a cooldown with rsp, but not with extend shields. otherwise all the changes from last week are mostly good. a few minor tweeks would make them better (but thats a deeper science issue)
------------------------------------------------------
TRIBBLE-
apparently the borg 4 set is being broken into 2 seperate 3 sets. this means no more 2+2 for most builds and the 3+1 will be out the window.

the ramifications to this are not fully known but the major visable effect will be a reduction in "free" heals. this is a good step. however there are other more visable "free heals" that need to be adjusted first. (BFI and TT being the 2 that come to mind)
-------------------------------------------------

the general feeling about science (not my personal opinions though)

Poor performance sci skills:
- Scramble (only good at maxed out 3 too high opportunity cost)
- Energy Siphon (doesn't drain much but gives good return)
- PSW (too weak knock, stun resisted)
- GW (too weak max pull)
- ST (too short clearing)
- MES (well...)
- FBP (too high opportunity cost. only good for tacs)
- JS (useless in teamplay)
- Tachyon beam (does nothing because of resists)
- CPB (does nothing because of resists)
- Photonic officer (high opportunity cost, very little effect)
---------------------------------------------------------

OTHER-
the time ship consoles needs adjusting, their consoles when combined are not resistable. this was stated from the start by borticus as intentional. now he's come back and said that its not intended for ANY ability in this game to not be resistable. please make up your mind.

everything else seems in good order.*

also, still no fleet marks for pvp, and i highly doubt there will be personal reputation for pvp either in season 7, come on cryptic and PWE, for PWE saying they sure love pvp they have yet to show it at all in this game. pvp is constantly being neglected and left out. way to show the love there.

anything else will be added and updated as usual.

Ib4 complete thread derailment.


TSS should resist the time console field, its like voyagers temporal shielding. add that it does that in the abilities description.

Don't give them ideas well get reinforcement transporter doffs that give TSS a 20% chance to proc temporal shielding. lol

perfect idea for a "anti time" set. itd be shields, deflectors and engines. the shields would grant you a power to be immune to time effects (chrono torps included)

etc etc etc.... each time you use it when someone uses the backstep+

itd wipe out whole civs.

Here is some PWE news... I received (likely we all did) an invite to there RaiderZ stress test... Hey PWE guys should any of you happen to read these forums ever. (I know not likely)... There is NO WAY I will play a PWE game again, its plain that you folks don't like PvP. :P

Yay! best news so far since F2P! This makes ALL the other sets better, AND reduces healing!

:eek: I made the news!

Feedback i've on this list:
- ST clears long enough
- GW pull is disputed (i still say it's too weak, with last weeks changes in hold-resist CDs)

Hale love is underrated. If you only knew...

Talking about the borg set changes.

The universal assimilated module will be part of a 3 console set.
The 2-piece bonus is not that big, but how would I have to interprete the 3-piece: reactive deflection. The discription states as follows:

"passive, When hit to drastically reduce all incoming damage for 1 second"

Is this a kind of spike counter?

I'ts vague, granted, but this sounds so very bad. Bort, any chance you can let us in on exactly how this bonus works?
