I doubt that's relevant here. There's been pretty much zero whining about *wanting* the leech on the fed side. 99.998% of all forum threads have been klinks whining about the feds possibly getting it. Now they've gotten it.


So with those metrics mind... maybe they did it to make the small but very vocal minority of kdf players who whine about leech, of kdf players who post on the forums, of players who post on the forums, cry harder.


Because in all honesty y'all are the same guys complaining that C-store ships and 'p2w consoles' aren't 'content', and how much you want original content.


Now that Cryptic has listened to you and given you a ****load of new and much more interesting than the fed equivalent content, now you don't care about that any more and want your consoles that you whined so hard about back?

Please.

Yes it must be klinks complaining about leach.

Its the most terrible console they have added... its easily countered though... we all just run one... so congrats we all have one less console slot now.

Its a great boon to escorts blowing up borg a slight bit faster though so score on that front.

To be honest, I'm not particularly worried about Feds getting plasmonic leech, except the effect it may have on KDF population. On the other hand, what worries me more are the Tal Shiar command code doffs, given that their track record is much, much worse where it comes to special Doffs. Every time they've introduced new doff powers, there's been at least one which shakes things up a whole bunch.

Oh, and the Borgbird cruiser could be fitted out like a Science Vessel, giving up subsys targeting for an additional 2 weapon slots. Could make things interesting.

By the way, Drunk, it appears that your Warp Plasma might get some bite back. From patch notes,

Plasma-Generating Science consoles from the Romulan Reputation system have been updated to increase all Plasma damage, as opposed to just Plasma damage from Directed Energy weapons.

Yay! So now ALL my ships, by adding in the new warp cores, are gonna be running with super-mega-ultra powah levels!

Wait...Aren't engineers supposed to be the best at having high power levels? I mean, sure, before the KDF DID have PL, but it was still only a KDF thing.

Now, with all the rep gear, rep passives, fleet gear, BOFFs, warp cores, etc, along with Plasmonic Leech, everyone will have high power levels that are easily obtainable and kept.



So...Engineers are meant to be the guys with high power levels, right? Because...all I see is little more than redundancy with them. I mean, before you could argue that you could use an engineer for healing and/or high sustained power levels, particularly with the LoR changes, but now...why?

I am serious about this btw. I mean, now ANYONE on any toon, can keep high power quite easily.

Sure the 10 power across the board is all well and good, but what's the point when a console that anyone can have negates the whole point? Yes, you can use PL on TOP of the trait, but...why?

(Just thought I'd bring up a different point, which won't hopefully be ignored)

Geko always wanted to sell powers in the store and was only held back by tech. Apparently the trait tech has caught up with his wishes. I wonder how long it will be until we see the first boff power on the store / in a box?
