I have been Scrambled/AM'd so much these past few days that I hereby recant my vow:
I'll join the masses using Scramble. Not Scramble 3, but I shall be using Scramble 1 from here on out.
I don't mind losing, but when the only reason I die is because my heals are sent to random Photonics, it's time for me to play dirty. (Not trying to be full of myself here - I die a lot of legitimate reasons :p But when I know I could have held out with my heals, that's a no no).
I actually said the same thing in the ss/tac team thread.
I'm with you MVS. And will now give up a tss2 or he2 or sciteam2 on maybe a couple of our fleets sci builds. We stayed away from it for so long because of the frustation it causes. We have had every ship carry a copy of scti team, and the sci ships 2 manditory just to counter.
But enough may be enough. I've spent so much time scrambled the past week it makes the past 6 months seem like a joke. Especially when I noticed over the past week cruisers with 2 SS, and sci ships with 2 on the same team. Under same banner. Planned that way. Just uncouth.
In this game we should have fun killing bad guys.
Not spend a half hour looking for em, and healing their photo pets.
Nothing wrong with using SS I or II. You give up big heals for it.
Ok If our STO "Guru" is saying here that there's "nothing wrong with using SS 1 or 2", I'll prepare one of my BOFF's and at the nearest occasion I'll scramble QEW permanently. Oh man i just can't wait.
If you can't beat 'em... join 'em. Obviously scramble is something we're going to have to live with... so you might as well run it. I'm just glad we cruiser captains got the Antimatter console, as we have very limited Sci slots on cruisers.
Short of that, spam the crap out of mines and scorpion fighters... you might not get hit by SS.
