I've been having problems with that actually.. At least when it comes to dealing with Escorts. Not the turn rate necessarily, but more being able to tank even a single Escort at times. I would think that I'd be able to tank abit better then I have been. I've also been questioning if having 100+ Shield power + EptS even gives enough shield resist any more to help tank.
Doesn't help that it feels like most Escorts now adays use Tetryon Glider, or worse, Concentrated Tachyon Mines. Not to mention Tricobalt Mine Layers..
I am also trying to perhaps a Plasma DoT Build. But I'm not sure if I should be using Torps more, or Plasma Beams for that one. I would think Torps would work better or are more reliable especially if Mines were used. But I'm just not sure. Bleh. I feel like the more that I play STO, the less I know.
You think that your beta test was bad?
