# 11 My opinions on the holds

Yes, it is beyond aggravating.

As a melee specced tactical, I don't often have the luxury of fighting at range.

And whenever I try to back up, I get rooted, hit motion accelerator and then get rooted again.
And the second time, there's no escape, because both my hypo and motion accelerator are on cooldown.

There was a brief glorious time when I was immune to assimilation.
The accolade Immune (200 borg vessels) meant I was unaffected by assimilation.
This debuff simply had no effect on me, it was like being a member of Species 8472.

And then something changed.

After 2 months or so of ignoring assimilation, suddenly I got hit by it again.
Considering I had been formerly immune to this debuff, I was quite surprised to get hit with it again.

Would someone care to explain why the most useful protection against the Borg was removed?
