I've finally got to do some extended PVP with my Vo'Quv to see how all the changes that were made to the Carrier effects my play style.
My Snapping Turtle build still does quite well for the most part; however, it does have a very costly flaw.
I use Feedback Pulse 3 and I boost its effectiveness with 3 x Rare Induction Stabilizer Mk XI, it would be 4but I use the Borg console in the 4th slot.
If I can stay alive I come in 2 or 3 in total damage.
The problem is if I die once, I end up with no crew and start getting owned if I don't have any team protection.
The worst part about loosing crew count is that all of the heals that work of the crew system loose effectiveness and makes my Carrier that much softer.
If you play consecutive PVP matches, your crew count never regenerates and you just keep getting softer and softer.
The damage that I'm getting off of Feedback Pulse is what makes the build deadly and helped keep Escorts at bay; however, now it seems that I'll have to load up my science console slots with Rare Biofunction Monitor Mk XI just to try to keep my crew count up.
I use to use Tactical Team to help with crew recovery but now Tactical Team does not effect crew recovery.
What steps if any are you guys taking to help mantain your crew count?
When we respawn, we should respawn with our full crew compliment.
I went through 6 cap and hold matches and never was able to get my crew count above 1500 after I got popped in my very 1st match.
I have fired my entire ships crew and replaced them with tribbles...........now i activly look for battles to cull the herd on board...if I don't I have to beam them to the minor race planets in a expanse somewhere so they can have target practice with their one shot kills on my BO's that they love so much......
Was in Ker'rat yesterday when i attacked these two sci's in cruisers. They pushed me into the BIG thing of borg before they died.
I spent the next 5 minutes crawling of of it.
After that, I spent the next 5 minutes hiding because 1 crewmember survived the ordeal and that was with the consoles.
I always think to myself, if Kirk father can one man his connie 100 years prior, why can't I one man my carrier just as effectivly?
