Watch out people the old Sci spamming seems to be back with the old you have no power for anything spams.
You can kill them because of their heals with a normal team. These matches where you fly in and cant do any thing, breen power drain x5, power syphon x5, tykans rift x2, sub noc x3, sensor scan x? then target anything with no power and you just go pop!
A all sci team is the worst thing ive ever had to play in pvp, I dont mind loosing but come on the match is just sci spam tastic, cyrptic please do somthing about the spam, whats the point in playing when you cant do anything but pop a bat and run every time?

I remember a capture and hold I was in. Two intrepids were coordinating tyken's rifts and tri-cobalts.

All power levels on everyone would go to 0. (my 125 weapons power hit 0 several times) and then they'd just hit the group with two trics and kill them all. It was gruesome.

ABSOLUTE irony. First people complain about the breen set being too weak and now its a spam power and needs a nerf.... This is irony at it's finest. Leave it be. Its just the flavour of the month.

Kinda what I thought too when reading this thread.

5 ships using 1 or 2 powers will always seem OP. Doesn't matter what it is. FaW, drain, or SV. Cryptic will have to be the one that has to stop the NERF calls via ignoring them. Right now? They provide instant gratification and they work. Bad precident. If this keeps up and Cryptic falls in line with the constant NERF this, NERF that, we'll see an NGE in the future just to comply and "make it easier to balance". Already calls in this thread to take away some of the powers slots available. Unlocked Jedi, anyone?

Cryptic development, see what you started? And will you "go all the way" with an NGE of your own? Dstahl, do you remember the april fools joke? "Star Trek Babies Online"?

(and no1 can say I'm taking up for my own this time, I don't even have a sci toon or a sci ship)

I think it's understood that you can't make everyone happy about everything all of the time. It's a difficult but necessary task to sift through the complaints to find what is legitimate and then correct it.

Believe me Steve, it won't stop. EV1 wants to WIN! Escorts get Crusiers NERFed, Escorts amd Crusiers get Sci NERFED, Sci retaliates and gets ? NERFed and so on, and so on, and so on. Everyone posts their "numbers" and their "testing" to justify the NERF calls. One day, a developer wakes up with THE "great idea". "Hey, it takes going thru 4000 issues to NERF FaW, that's a lot of work. Let's CHANGE the entire combat system so we can balance easier".

The beginning of the end. SWG, ***, EU, etc . It all started this exact way. And to be honest, you can trace it all back to the respective PVP communities never ending quest for balance. (mostly due to the fact that they lost a match somewhere) I know, I used to be one of them until I seen what it got me.

well this was a problem before the power drain from the breen set. A full team of Sci's (Or a full team of MVAMs) running Gravity wells and Rifts can not only drain and crush you but lag you to hell. Add in photonic fleet and beam target sub-systems and you're not going nowhere.

This is why I generally PvP with friends and fleeties, the whole "it's all about winning screw actual skill" thing has gotten on my nerves.
