Power
 
Time to un-nerf Eng consoles.

They were neutered back in the day because one of the Devs felt like they gave too much power and that it was way too easy to have high power levels.

Look at what we've got now.

Plasmonic Leech can give you +15-20.
MACO shields can give you +10 (or is it more?)
Warp Cores give you a bunch as well, let's say +15 to call it even.

That's +40 power without having to actually do anything - no BOff powers, no DOffs, no active player actions. Nothing. All it costs is 1 console slot (since you're have to run shields and a warp core anyways).

These consoles used to grant +7 to a single subsystem and that was enough to get them nerfed. Leech alone can give you +15 to EVERYTHING.

Why bother ever running an Engineering console that will give you +3.5 to a single subsystem?

Let's face it , we need all this power to fight NPC'S.

+3.5????


Thats a bit too OP lad, I request cryptic nerfs them to +2 at most.

I agree with this. If they want us to have power, might as well just let us go all out.

Sarcasm\ After all, the tacs and scis need more power levels, especially tacs. /sarcasm

From items readily available...

From items that are sufficiently monetized...

It's possible I'm being too cynical, but there really are days when you just have to wonder.

Even if it was unnerfed, would you still run the power consoles?

My Fed tactical officer runs a ship with no ability consoles (except for cloak). I have no room for something that would just boost one subsystem that, because of Warp Core Efficiency, wouldn't even give me the full amount anyways.

Solution:

Add a corresponding non-power bonus to the consoles, perhaps similar in function to the bonus given by the related EPtX variant.

IE: Weapon power consoles gain some manner of energy weapon damage, drain reduction, accuracy boost.

Shield power consoles gain some form of shield resist, regen, bleedthrough boost

Engine power consoles gain defense, turn rate, speed boost

Aux power consoles gain stealth detection, healing, exotic damage boost

Just a thought.

I like your idea, but it probably won't happen because that makes sense.

That would be a nice usage of them though. But maybe not give the Defense bonus on the engine power console. Because that might be a little much, there's already a ton of Defense bonuses around.

Never.

Which is why in this day and age of multipurpose consoles, it would need something more than just +Power

power consoles are fine.

Now if they unerf EPS back to when it reduced weapons drain, that would be ok in todays game, because with doffs and mogai anti -weapen drain is already in the game.

Or give it to insulators, to resist weapons drain when fired, like geko stated it did in a previous post but is actually false they don't effect weapon drain.
