I don't know how, but [Borg] proc is not completely broken.
 
The other day in Kerrat, I was fighting a tactical cube and a group of probes. After I was one shotted by a plasma torpedo, I went back through the logs to see how much damage it dealt (something like 40k I think) and I came across this:

[CombatSelf] Your Chaotic Particle Stream deals 1000 damage to Probe.

This is exactly what the [Borg] proc on the old STF store weapons does. While I have only seen it once (I still have three Borg turrets on my ship), which was this instance here, it is apparently not entirely gone. Just thought I'd share this.

nobody said is was gone or didnt work.
the correct statement is that it only works on some borg npcs not all of them why you cant get the weapons anymore why bother with something that doesnt work as it should when they eventually come back they will probably work correctly against all borg ships

It was the unique borg ships in the Cure Space Elite that caused the borg proc to not work since they were not correctly tagged. Against regular Borg ships like those found in Infected Space Elite and Khitomer Accord Space Elite, they worked perfectly. So an assimilated klingon ship would cause the borg proc to not work, but works perfectly on probes, spheres, and cubes.

Yeah, it was never completely broken it just never completely worked. :)

Working as intended? ;)

There I was, in CSE today.
After I killed a Borg Bird-of-Prey I checked the combat log...

[Combat [Self]] Your Chaotic Particle Stream deals 1000 damage to Borg Bird-of-Prey.

Did they fix it? Or did they break it so much that it works? :confused:

It always worked. I guess just not enough to the Devs, who knows.

They simply replaced it with something else. The [Borg] proc didn't work as intended so they eliminated the ability to purchase those weapons, but left the ones that already existed.

I LOVE my [Borg] weapons working as intended or not. How do the new ones compare ?

New ones?

*looks around*

Are you referring to fleet weapons?

i think they just came up with a bad excuse to get rid of free AP weapons -.- makes me wish i could still get them...would LOVE to have AP (or other types) beam arrays for free on my sci ships (but since they got rid of the currency that drops them its a no go) i would LOVE to use borg marks (say 90-150) per weapon, obviously untradeable except maybe bind to account. Outside of borg its a rare weapon so there isnt anything to complain about :).
