We will be bringing down Star Trek Online tomorrow, Thursday, March 14th, at 7AM PDT (click here to view in your timezone) for maintenance and to apply a new patch. Patch notes can be found here, and we expect this maintenance to only last for 2 hours. The test server may also be unavailable during this time.
If this is for the 14th, WHY does the launcher and Pacth notes Forums say it's for the 13th at 7-9amPDT?
[6/24 23:12] [Combat (Self)] Your Thalaron Pulse deals 126254 (48978) Radiation Damage to Tactical Cube. Hehe. Suck it Borg!
[10/8 15:47] [Combat (Self)] Crystalline Entity deals 98082 (147136) Kinetic Damage to you with Warp Core Breach. WUT? I blame Kurland for this and all other problems in STO.
The Cryo Pulsewave and its Mk XII upgrade now deal 75% of their previous damage when fired against Players.
Why would they nerf the best gun for pvp?
It's a stupid change and they should feel bad.
The Cryo Pulsewave has the stats it has.. it doesn't magically 'do more damage' than guns of other types with the same stats otherwise. I guess this is just a case of whinging-pushing-devs to make pointless changes.. like the Trico nerf that doesn't actually fix what is wrong with Trics.
People in PvP, even if the damage level is reduced, will continue to use the cryo pulsewave for the freeze effect/etc, and other players will still whine that it's overpowered. The right way those other players could have handled it was.. GOING AND GETTING ONE THEMSELVES, thereby BALANCING THE FIELD. Reducing damage (only to players) isn't a fix.
