It's sadly entirely too trivial.
So true. I just tried it out this morning and it was ridiculously easy. Its "regeneration" effects have been nerfed to oblivion. I didn't even find the need to dodge those crystal shards. Although I never agreed with the idea that it could regenerate from large shards hitting small craft/mines, the fact that they removed this feature gave rise to all these carrier pet spam and mine spam that pretty much clears out all the crystal shards.

I also noticed that the CE's beams now fires regardless of it's health at multiple targets. While that's a nice change, I also noticed that it's beams just doesn't hurt like it used to. Aside from the shards and tholians, the CE has no killing power.
