This is STO today. STO has universal consoles. It didn't before, but now it does. Don't try to pretend it's something it's not. Are they a good part of the game? Not all of them, but they are still part of it. Calling them gamebreaking can not be justified IMO, they're no IWIN button. Most of them are actually more of a wasted console slot... But you have to adapt to them, as to any boff ability.

These consoles upset the status quo, and the builds that were good before may be less good now, but we have also gotten a lot of new build opportunities. This is not the same STO as before the consoles, and while I find it different, I don't find it worse. (at least I wouldn't if they tweaked console balance a little)
of course they are part of the game, if not we will not having the discussion. And they are not IWIN button, is right, but if u know how to use them is almost a certain win, a premade (or even just 1 or 2 players with the proper build..) can easy win a match just using those consoles if they know how, u probably won't understand this point until u see it in action (for example AMS+scamble sensors, plasmonic leach+aceton assimilator+tyken rift or sphion drones, etc..they are many way of use this consoles in order to make an IWIN combo), and in the case of pugs there are enought gamebreaking for ruin the gameplay in the most of the cases
I have no problem with universal consoles, for example i think borg and ferengi set consoles are good consoles, they give u an small -but usefull- boost to some stats, and no a uber skill.
