dude, the ships are getting better all the time....and gear too....and powers too....in all games ive ever played.... thats what happens.... things get more powerful as the game evolves...this one seems to be doing the same....which does not surprise me, and i guess i can't speak for others...but...i don't think it should surprise anyone really...

whats the point in playing the game if you cannot work towards something better? hell, i pve grind for just about everything...except my super cool McSteamie, which i dropped $10 on....but that hurt me like it would anyone i guess...

i guess what i'm trying to say, is...i'm trying to get your point. but i'm finding it hard, thats all...the game keeps going in this fashion, you can stick with the curve...or fall behind...i can only keep up with 1 toon these days and stay competitive....which sucks...because i really like playing sci too...

but really my point was....i can still take my old defiant out and pull the same kills off as i ever did vs being in my new fleet defiant...because really the difference is only 1 tac console....

or....i could rock my old fleet escort...thats what it used to be called....and do the same thing as my new SUPER COOL McSteamie...the difference there being i trade off a lt sci power for a lt eng power....

or....enter ship name here....and do the same thing as....enter ship name here.... with a little different results...

i seem to just ignore everyone with their lolspecial cooldown doff hax.... doesnt bother me at all...and it will be fixed soon anyways....matter of fact ive had several conversations with people in the past week at how they noticed my cooldowns werent reduced and why i wasnt running the doff while i could....my explanation was that i can do the same thing without it, so why even bother with stuffs like that anyways....

same with A2B builds.... i don't like them. 3 doffs, possibly 2 if you spend a lil more....just to get some cooldown reduction.....cool for you bro, i'll take my 2 lt eng powers and do something usefull for the team instead of being all selfish about my own tac cool downs...as most engineers in cruisers for some reason still focus on doing damage for same silly reason....go ahead bro, knock yourself out....but i dont think you understand the game as much as you think you do. now it does work for some people, and specific builds...thats great...but its far from being efficient from my point of view. but i will defer to drunk for cruiser builds....

so, this power creep you speak of.....its the curve of the game....and if you are not used to it over the past year and a half, and how perfect world seemed to step on the gas with it....then...well...idunno man...i seem to make enough EC just PVP grinding to buy whatever i need of the exchange....i imagine PVErs make tons more EC than me, and can buy whatever the hell they want through EC, or dilith, or convert it into zen....

so what is the real problem here? are you upset that the time you spend in the game doesnt yield the same results as it used to? well i'm sorry my old friend, but that is life. i learned that lesson in my early 20's, and decided to kick life in the balls instead of having life kick me in the balls, and cry about it.

and thats the thing! its a game! i love getting blown up! and i love having fun and killing bad guys.... (Blue team, i got your number) (Go Red team go!)

anyways, i was at work earlier, i hope i made my point a little more clearly, and a little less *******-ish.
