So far, so good!



  • The flight speed reduction value has been decreased from -83.33% to -80.00%.
Nothing to worry about here. No real change.



  • The flight speed reduction now takes all of a target's resistances into account when calculating the magnitude.


NPCs don't have any real debuff resistances to speak of.


No problem here.



  • The "Disable" component has been replaced with a "Weapons Offline" mode, while within the subspace hazard.
"Disable" doesn't really do anything to NPCs. They don't have captain powers, at most they have 1 to 3 BOFF powers.


On the other hand 'Weapons offline' means they are unable to shoot you.


It means their weapons are disabled.




So, this was mostly some improvement and some PvE neutral changes.






The only reason I think people aren't rejoicing is because they don't understand it all.


Well, that's why Uncle Ulti is here to help.


Enjoy.

I have a few of these, wondering how much I can get for them on the exchange?

They're worthless, I'll take 5 for 10000 ec ;-)

This is good to hear and I can now say "HA told you so!" to the disable part being removed due to OPness.

Has damage got out of control?
This is the last thing I will post.

Hey thanks Uncle Ulti! Maybe you can help me further:

I got a couple of these from boxes the other day, but I don't PvP, so I just set one aside for future consideration and sold the other (Hey wolfdog14, I got about 3.3M EC from the one I sold).

I've read various posts about it, but it's hard to sort out details from between all the PvP vs. PvE rage and discussions about "the baseball" and... well... I'm still a little uncertain of what it even does (I think I'm partially confusing it with some of the other new Elachi gear/effects, too).

So, dear Uncle Ulti, would you mind giving a bit of in-depth play-by-play of how this console works, it's cool down, how it stacks up value-wise to other consoles, Pro-Tips/Warnings on use, etc.

Thanks in advance.

/roles for bluff check

being a pve'er, im real happy they buffed this console! no win and stfs are hard, but this makes them a bit easier to handle, with the damage and the weapons fire disable!

Hi Havelock,

Sorry I didn't see this and respond sooner.


The best way to think of this console right now is:

> Works similar to a Grav Well as it will debuff enemy movement.
> It may be more effective than grav well as it directly debuffs movement speeds, where's as Grav Well applies a negative (or "reverse) "push" effect (pulls inward).
> Also puts target's weapons offline.
> Does not do damage over time and instead has a one time explosion of damage to everything in radius once the black hole "collapses" (power expires).


I'm not convinced it's overpowered in PvP anymore, although the actual visual obscurement is kind of huge and should be resisted by skill ranks in starship sensors IMO.

I can't be sure about PvP usage though, as I haven't had it used on me by any very coordinated opponents. I also tend to avoid using this kind of console in PvP personally.

I use it liberally in PvE for stuff like Azure Nebula, ISE, CSE, CE, Mirror Event to increase overall completion speed.

No worries Uncle Ulti. I appreciate the info you've provided, thanks! I have a couple more questions... Why are people referring to a "baseball" in relation to this power? What's the cooldown on the power/how often can it be used? Finally, what's the Firing Arc (if any) and Range?

1) I think they call it the baseball because its round and there are some vague lines in it. I think it's a silly name.

2) 3 min cd.

3) Firing Arc = 90 degrees, need to double check.

4) Range should be 10km, but I need to double check.

I wish it was that recent, I haven't had dancing octopus since July.
