No, the Vo'quv and Atrox are 3/3 ships with a science/eng bend and little tactical capabilities, its not a Recluse that is also with a science/eng bend, its closer to the Jem?Hadar Dreadnought and the Kar'Fi that are 4/3 ships with a tactical bend.

Problems:

1) Why heal them when you can bring their cooldown to negligible levels?
2) Why heal them when you have thinking players on your team who you should be healing instead?
3) Why heal them when they will hug exploding objects and die anyway?

There's more at work here than their hull/shield values.

I think the new status UI is fine.

I think that there will still be no incentives to "save the unit" (see points above).

Again, why would you waste a BOFF heal on a single pet out of up to 12 pets, that goes onto a 30 or 45s cooldown, when you can simply recast the pet? (I can only hope players make the silly mistake of healing their pets instead of their teammates in PvP)

As it is, you are better off recasting Danubes or Frigates, etc., anyway to reset their powers cooldowns.

That's right! You can recast pets faster than their own powers cool-down!

Do you think that is acceptable?





The only way I'll be ok with pets becoming "more powerful" through some kind of veteran system is if when they are launched they start out ZERO of their special powers that they shouldn't even have in the first place (power drains, tractor beams).

Because if they are starting where they are now, and only get better, then this is just going to make them even more problematic than they already are in PvP - even though they will continue to be relatively useless in PvE.

See that's the kicker. The devs make these changes thinking they are making their core audience happy, but their core audience (PvE) can barely make use of 1/5th the OP stuff getting pumped out due to the design of PvE content.

The only thing they end up constantly impacting in huge ways, is PvP.

I think we can finish this thread here. It's been fun and informative.

With the latest dev blog and the impending release of the Scimitar, I deeply bow before all of you in here. See you out there, and enjoy your new ride, if you're set to buy that 3 pack first thing tomorrow after maintenance like I am.
