You guys broke the Romulan Boffs...again
 
Multiples carrying the same level of Covert Operative (IE: Covert Operative or Superior Covert Operative) don't stack anymore. You can still stack different levels.

To Wit:

2x Superior Covert Operative boffs will yield the same crit bonus of 1 Superior Covert Operative boff.

But a Basic Covert Operative and Superior Covert Operative can stack?

As far as I can tell.

I don't think so.

My green Romulan Covert Operatives stopped stacking, too. However I'm unsure about the Subterfuge BOffs, my cloak cooldown starts now at 18 seconds (was 17 before the patch with 2 Subterfuge BOffs) but the damage bonus after decloaking seems to be a tiny bit higher :confused:

A dev mentioned on the tribble forums that a nerf was inbound for the quite ridiculous crit bonus, but they haven't decided yet what to do. Maybe this is a temporary solution until they make a decision, because honestly this crit bonus was just too overpowered.

Green = Covert Operative
Blue = Superior Covert Operative

Crit Percentages -------- Boff Loadout

15.2 ------- 1 Green, 2 Blue
12.7 ------- 2 Blue
15.2 ------- 1 Green 1 Blue
12.7 ------- 1 Blue
8.9 ------ Zero Boffs


Granted it's a small N, but the results seem fairly conclusive.

That's an argument I'm not really going to get into. My feeling is that somebody was rushing to put the cooldown bug fix in and screwed up something on the backend of these boffs.

i hope this is intentional. these boffs should not even exist

Oh-oh... Err... Yeeeeah... They're supposed to do that. Right, they're working as intended. No worries here.

You know, some people just like to have a Romulan bridge crew for their Romulan character. It's not all about PvP in this game :rolleyes:

Right, if people are going to start fussing about the Boffs...then you might as well nerf all the over powered consoles that have been released in the last year

<sigh>

And you will still have a nice edge over the next RPer with an all Orion bridge crew. :)
