4) Team mates, stacking GW.






One ship tossing a GW and turning all of the spheres into helpless apples in a barrel was always a sad, poor design for the encounter.

It still needs improvement, like better AI behavior, but its better than it was.

I don't run EWP on my Vesta, prefer to have the ltc as sci. Not to mention that i am running a max auxbuild anyways.

TBR is sometimes helpfull but it depends on the overall position and if the targets are moving more or less in one direction out of the grav well.

And as i said before, any of the special consoles like Theta Radiaton and so on don?t count cause not everybody has them. And yes i know they are more available now, but you shouldn't have to rely on them to make certain builds work.
Same with specific weapon loadout.

And as i already said, a boffskill should be able to do the things which are described in their tooltip on their own, at least on the highest available skilllvl. So basically you should get a decent effect out of every boffskills if you have at least a few skillpoints in it and runnung a decent power in the related system.

And that is something that basically doesn?t apply for any of the holds, drains, or shield stripper skills, sci has.

And getting Teamwork in a stf with randoms is something that does not happen really often. You are already lucky if they have mostly decen?t builds and/or know how to handle the stfs.

Anti-cloaking ships rejoice!

Oh don't you worry little submarine,
I know you won't be hurting me,
You'll be too busy sucking vacuum,
Asking yourself where that gravwell be.

Still, I think the tribble testing will show it to be underpowered no matter what. It has to or else, Escorts will be crying for nerf before it even hits the holodeck, same goes for GW.

Here is what will likely happen when the GW and Tyken's fix hit Tribble (Warning : Dramatization, do not imitate at home )

Unnamed Escort hero : "Woah! Dearest Adjudicator Hawk, the GW III and Tyken's Rift III are super OP!"

Average STO forum reader : "What's wrong?"

Unnamed Escort hero : "Look, my super OP Bug ship can't move, nerf this now!"

Average STO Sci Captain : "Really? The Borg probe is still moving like nothing happened at all..."

Unnamed Escort hero : "Says who? My speed used to be 110 with EPtE now I am moving at merely 109.5! Did you know this reduction of 0.5 will get my bug ship killed! Nerf this now!"

Average STO Sci Captain : "o_o"



Get ready, because the nerf cry will be coming soon.

Testing feedback will be most appreciated, when this change lands on Tribble. Please keep an eye out for the patch notes.
Thank you!

fairly devastating against what? your crappy npc's with no resists?

give'm 50% resists right off the bat and then let us know how devastating it is.

Heh, didn't realize the prices would spike up that far! I only got 6 or so, though, so it sure wasn't me pushing up the price. There were plenty left at 2mil or so.

Anyways, even if underpowered, a doff proc will help massively combined with other drains/holds - especially on Romulans.
PvP-ready toons: Ishmael - Betazoid Sci - Vesta - U.S.S. Yukikaze - The unsinkable destroyer - T'Scurr - Romulan Tac - Mogai - I.R.W. Archer - Countervape overwatch - Ffairl - Romulan Sci - T'Varo - R.R.W. Yuudachi - The nightmare of Solomon

Take it easy!
