Anything with a cone effect WOULD affect EVERYONE in that cone.
As such friendly fire 'realism' demands these weapons hit EVERYONE in that cone and Line of Sight of the weapon.
End of Discussion.
I will TOTALLY enjoy being on ground zones or Starfleet Academy with folks spraying cone weapons all over the place and these powers screwing everyone.
FF has no place in STO, the playerbase cannot handle it, the game mechanics cannot handle it and Cryptic have made it repeatedly clear Gameplay > Realism.
Star trek in general is full of complete garbage techno-babble explanations, why start critigueing them now?
You're right though the playerbase can not handle FF, thats very evident.
Guess we can look foward to more Gravity wells at .5 km only affecting targets will the caster is immune to the hole in space-time, or targetable PSW's that only know how to affect the enemy or CPBs that only effect the enemy, etc, etc.
