There should not be secrets out there for a game that everyone is supossed to enjoy. The Jem'Hadar shield use to work but since this last patch it doesn't regenerate at all and torpedos go right through it. The Devs definately nerfed it or bugged it. Now I have no defense against the teams of game hackers out there harrasing normal players.

What? I can't tell if this is supposed to be horrifically satirical, trolling, or an honest opinion. I can only assume trolling from the statement of "Jem'hadar shields working" because that was what you call an exploitable bug, now they simply work closer to intended.

I do however agree that the mechanics of the game are fairly poorly understood and communicated. However, there is no "hacking" just people who have taken the time and effort to understand how the game works better. There are a number of skills that reduce the amount of damage you take and a number of tactics that also do the same thing. The most experienced players are simply the best at doing so. Learn the techniques. And as always the basics:

Redistribute your shields, keep your defensive buffs up and remember, there's always someone out there who's better. Learn from them.
