Oh boy... Elite Fleet Pets
It's about to get a whole lot worse.

As if Danubes with their Tractors weren't bad enough, now they get Tractor Beam 3 and Eject (Tetryon) Warp Plasma.


Danubes get TB 3 + EWP 3, whereas Type 10s get Phaser Arrays, Micro Photons, and Polarize 1? How are these pets even balanced amongst themselves?

These are the stats for the player Tetryon Cloud, except very similar (if not the same) for the NPC version:
Ejects Tetryon Plasma Cloud:
-90% Turn Rate
-66% Impulse Speed
Disables Cloak
50% chance: Disable Engines

some of the pets sound worse... dont the very rare fed fighters currently have quad cannons?


and yay the type 10 gets a torpedo! finally still useless!

More invisible ewp for us to get stuck in because STO's graphics aren't capable of displaying it until you're actually in it.

A lot of the pets look barely buff while some look over buffed. Fighters got squat and friget type of ships got massive buff. If this is so cant wait to see BoP and Fek'Ihri.
Kdf is about 2 weeks away ;)

I hate it how the shuttles didn't get mines, but the danubes got a whole new can of whoopass!

Gonna be so lolworthy spraying EWP1 everywhere together with my pets...

That is rediculous... the Danube's TB is enough... but this... the Yellow Stone is a movement debuff nightmare.

On the other hand, most people carry HE1 these days thanks to romulan plasma spam. While the buff is up, you cannot be slowed.

Also, more reason to run full Assimilated now.

And to think, the Vesta can pop these out while still effectively coating the engagement area with GW 3 and EWP. With it's own Tractors to go with it.

I think this thread should be in the PvE section...pets are not Players just saying :rolleyes:

if you dont play PvE now everyone will play PvE like it or not.

Maybe this will catch me a lot of flak, but...

That Runabout is WAY WAY worse than any Power Siphon drone. Heck, if anything Danoobs are gonna be the perfect way to counter Siphons (and really any carrier spam) now.

Plus the ridiculous fact that they will be using tractor beam 3 on people left and right, so even if you pop HE or PH to escape one, you'll have to hit the other to escape from both.

Isn't that wonderful? You'll HAVE to carry PH and HE just to counter the sheer amount of debuffs from those PETS.

And folks think that FvK is bad.

Oh, and let's not forget the BATTLE CLOAK on those Stalker fighters.

Ugh...I don't even know what else to say.
