I'm really beginning to think that they need to massively redesign the game's combat system as I really believe that they need to reduce the dependency on captain and BO abilities.

There are fundamental flaws that.......whatever though I'm sure that I'm alone in that feeling so I won't go on.
That's what I'm thinking as well. "Eh, it's only Tier 2 and the PvP queues are dead, so why not".

But what worries me more is that they are throwing balance out the window for sake of appeasing the PvErs. Though the thing is, even if you ignore the PvP balance, PvE is easier to do. So if PvE is easier, there is less challenge and they have to revamp STO to make it harder.

but mabye there is an easier way (but it requires some math understanding)
  • 1 Ensign Tactical Power + 1 Ensign Engineering Power +2 Ensign Science Powers +1 Lieutenant Science Power < 1 Ensign Tactical Power + 1 Ensign Engineering Power +2 Ensign Science Power +2 Lt. Science Powers.
  • Subtract 1 Ensign Tactical Power + 1 Ensign Engineering Power +2 Ensign Science Powers +1 Lieutenant Science Power from both sides, and you get
  • 0 < 1 Lieutenant Science Power.
  • Divide by Lieutenant Science Power (Assuming Lt.Science Power > 0)
  • 0 < 1.

Now I've simplified the problem. We just have to prove that a Lt.Science Power is more than 0. This would allow us to take two regular Tier 2 Novas and one ship uses no powers, and the other a single Lt.Science Power.
Make it so.
