Is there going to be a ETA on getting this fixed so Fed's can have a stealth again? It broken shortly after launch so it no longer works in PvP or PvE any eta on getting it working again so we can at least get it in PvP? Should even up the scales so feds can have a chance against cloak?

I doubt they intend to do anyhing to it, since they took the nerf hammer to it.

It's completly useless right now so id say its broken too.

Would be a joke if its "broken-by-design", considering how many overpowered abilitys there are in PvP at the moment.

It works in PvE btw. Tried it out 2 days ago.

In PvP enemies will detect you. I still don't know at which distance because I wasn't able to find cooperative Klingons elaborating it with me.


And I don't think anything is on its way at the moment. They changed it to this and will keep it this way.

MES III with maxed skill can be seen in PvP at around 10km.

You need a Science ship for MES III right? I have a escort.

What would be the point having MES on a Science ship?
Science ship with strong shields can hide while the glass cannon escort gets blown to bits?
And I have never seen a Boff with MES III before so i cant try it out either.


I find it a quite ridiculus that they broke this abilitys so horribly.
There are so many God-Mode and I-win buttons in this game why make this OUT OF COMBAT skill so useless?

Of corse you shouldnt be able to get right behind some Klingon and decloak.
I dont want a cloak, i just dont want to be so easyly detectable at far ranges.

I dont think there even is a difference if you have MES on or not. They always see me.

they really do need to fix this ability, they need to make it more like stealth.

first you should not be targetable when you use it. second you should not be able to fight when you are using it. it should be an escape option or an option to get really close to ships before attacking or getting far away after say too many borg suddenly notice you and only you out of twenty people.

Today I tried it again. With two sensor array consoles and max aux (and all MES related skilled maxed) vs some +3 lvl ships during a PvE mission. 6 encounters.
3 times I was able to move into the 10km range without being detected, 3 times I was attacked.
I don't know. Is this working as intended?

I have a BO with MES 3 (what I can't learn/use for my escort ship and don't really need for my science ship), but I wonder, if that works better than MES 1+2.

i would be happy if it atleast (in pvp) it didnt show your name or anything else that makes you easyly spotable.

exactly i say make it like cloak but without the ability to target or be seen for a few seconds because #1 you arent going to attack until you are ready and #2 all ships accept federation do not have windows used by the bridge crew, no ones standing at a window in the middle of a battle. and lastly, the feds need a better escape option especially when dealing with the zerg problems that the deep space encounters tend to have still to this day.
