# 1 bop=shockwave+subnuke+bo

this build seems to be running rife in pvp with every bop, you cant defend against it I saw a full hp/shields oddy dropped in 2 seconds against this set up.
I don't mind being alphad but at least give me the chance to defend myself there is no defence to this and iv got 114 in both sub system repair and dampers and also i hate being spamed by mines from cloaked bops that don't even show up this is the way a coward plays

okay I'm listening, can you be more specific did they stack consoles? because I've been playing a sci ina sci ship for a long time now never had an easy time like that unless it was an escort.
MMO's of 2014 where normal gameplay is considered an exploit and the eastern billing model is celebrated by apologists. smh

Huh, looks like something I'll have to try out, see if it's really that, or just someone having a bad Oddy build.

I know what the tooltip says. I know what the DOFF tooltip says. Somewhere along the line though...

edit: I have no phasers, phased polarons, etc, etc on my BoP. Only thing I have that can disable a subsystem is VM. I don't BO - it's a non-Tac Hegh'ta. Just something to annoy folks with rather than kill them. Much more fun to be called a Sci Spammer than be just another guy that unintelligible insults are being hurled at (and you're never sure if it's you or somebody else...I mean, do you ask?)...

edit: Dorking around, I dropped shields on maybe 2 out of 30 or so guys I was fighting. With nothing that should drop shields like that. I don't know if it is some combination of everything else going on - it's just shocks, nadeon shocks, grav well, tractor, hargh, trans, VM w/ Add+Spread. It's an annoyance BoP - not a kill BoP.

edit: Hrmm, the Breen Energy Dis shouldn't drain enough to drop them.

edit: There's nothing in the patch notes to suggest this has changed, and I'm not sure what is causing the effect I see from time to time. Would be easier if I was the target instead of the attacker.
