The actual combat balance for cloak and countermeasures is very good in STO. I am sure it will continue to tweak back and forth from stealth to detection but it seems fairly balanced to me.
The problem is that there is no means to home in on enemy ships, or friendly ships for that matter, from outside visibility range - whether cloaked or not. It is from the game design perspective that I believe there could be improvement for better game-play in the long term.
