Also, for the first time in ages, I failed to defend all 3 posts (1 of them blew up without me even realizing it until after the mission was done). Granted, the difficulty level is set at Elite. However, their damage got boosted so much, the firs tank is reported to suffer heavy damage pretty much within 5 seconds of the NPC showing up, before I could even started to open fire.

So perhaps, it would be wiser for you to get your facts right and actually play and see the difference yourself than patronizing others with those remarks. There is speed and damage buff, not just the Borg.

Also, to be confirmed by the dev, Borg NPC have in fact higher resists against many Sci powers than players do. Notice how things like scramble sensors or jam sensors barely affect the Borg? What you see in the pic is a Borg Sphere being hammered by total drain on his weapons system by a wooping 109 points. Against a player who has no energy resist, his weapons would be offline long time ago but the Sphere's weapons are not. In addition, NPCs in general have been greatly enhanced at the Elite level since LoR. Borg in particular now move incredibly fast and aggressively that Gravity Well no longer holds them anymore. You should try fighting those NPC at Elite level and see how much they have been buffed, the difference is super obvious.
Actually I do know the mechanics involved. My point is that the leech is not what is giving him these huges numbers as he gloated about.

Coming from the person jumping down anyone's throat who disagrees with them, and subsequently going off on lore related rants: even more adorable.

Look at that, you managed to answer your own question. Elite is, and always has, scaled terribly. Not to mention that ESTFs and "Elite" missions are not remotely related.

So no, your hypothesis is wrong. As to the exact why & how and details of the mechanics or what consoles are used - I am not going to disclose it in a Klingon forum - sorry, classified on the orders of Starfleet.
I don't think anybody claimed u were running syphons simultaneously. That would, in fact, be counterproductive. You were running them back-to-back, is what was implied.

The blog reveal is older than this thread.. People are not as dumb as you like to think.

In any event, blaming it on one console is just, um...how can I say this diplomatically, well "far-fetched".
Do you see the irony in your position yet?

I have doubts about that. Judging based on your posts here re: this topic, your grasp of this topic contains errors that anyone who is familiar with the mechanics wouldn't make. But again, this is besides the point and you are not on trial even though I resent your choice of words such as "gloat". In any event, times to move on, all we hearing is excuses after excuses that somehow justify these series of emotional outbursts. I prefer to focus on the pragmatic and see what we can do. One of the recurring theme that has merit in this thread is that the Emission-Seeking torp is too weak and not a fair trade. I haven't seen anyone who disagrees yet. So, in light of this, the focus should be how to make this right? Think about it, the trade is done, it's too late to revert it, as there are so many of these boxes for sale on the exchange and many have already bought. You can't undo it so the only option left is to fix it. I will start a new thread in the appropriate forum to get Borticus' attention, he is very open to constructive & pragmatic feedback. I will even convey many of the frustrations summarized here, stripping away the emotional aspects, and present the factual part to him. He is not kneen on listening to emotional outbursts but show him the facts and good points, and he will listen and consider.

So indeed, people are not as dumb as you think because anyone who is not blind can see exactly that this news was released one day before LoR release as opposed to the false claim of "weeks before LoR", per the timestamps.

Clearly, because I carefully read that blog before making my own post, which is time-stamped at 11:30 am. Assuming I took 30 mins to read the blog in its entirety, that puts the blog 1hr ahead of its purported time stamp..

I stand by what I said. The Player in question is not getting all his bonus power from the leech unless its broken and most likely is seeing it from running twin Energy Siphon on his build much like one can run almost twin anypower by doing so in cycle like one can with EPTx powers.

I surely stand by the gloating or say you did not read this whole thread. A lot of fed gloating in here.

If only I could get a tier 5 version to go along with my apparently game breakingly good (for feds) leech console.
Actualy reading things pefore posting will make you look smarter than yelling loudly. Reading comprehension is aparently a lost art.
