I don't see any issue with that.

If we are going to go off on Ensign level counters.

There are many more ensign level counters that 100% cure things.

How about Hazards 1 clearing Siphen 3... or Eject Warp Plasma 3... or Tykens 3.

EPTE isn't a hard counter its a soft one.

Frankly tractor beams with Zero spend in Graviton shouldn't hold anything at all imo.

Why is it that so many people think there 100% unspeced stuff should work perfectly all the time... even when there target is running soft and or hard counters ?
Honestly tho, higher ranks should also increase the strength a little bit more, it does _NOT_.

Ok. spoil a whole Leituenant or Lieutenant ocmmander for a few secs more tractor? thats dumb. Increase the strenght on rank upping too.

In that case nothing on EptE needs changed and investing anything higher then TB1 is finally worth something.

I agree tractor beam 2 or 3 needs the hold to be beefed up. Tractor beam 1 should still do more against epte1 though, especially if you have more points in gravitons then the target has in inertial dampers then maybe it will be more worth it to slot higher epte more instead of just having epte1 immune to everything. Also you should need more then epte1 to move around in grav well.

Is it my imagination or is it no longer possible to have engine batteries and Deuterium Tanks on escorts? And I have never seen an escort have problems keeping up with cruisers.

I'm pretty sure you can but most use a subspace field mod so only 1 battery. Cruisers have more device slots but lower impulse modifier and worse inertia, also many of them can't use attack pattern omega for another speed buff, also the ones that can slot it can only slot 1 copy so need aux2battery or attack pattern doffs to use it as often as an escort can.

The main reason why you won't notice all that much speed difference though is because of EPTE, most likely both the escort and cruiser are running it, and keeping it up 100% of time, all the other speed buffs like omega and deutrium only last a short time so don't make nearly as much of a difference as the overpowered epte.

50% off the EPTE buff... and 50% off the EPTS buff...

Sounds good.
-----------------------------------------------

Also reduse energy weapons damage by 50% and speed while cloaked by 75%

Thats sounds good too
