It has been almost 6 months since LOR hit. When do you think Cryptic will tweak that?
Well they've done it before haven't they, with other traits that had been uber for a long time? And it's potentially a money maker. If players need to buy Reman boffs to get the most out of warbirds and don't have the ec spare then that could be money trickling into the cash shop. So maybe they wait til they see people stop buying Reman boffs on the exchange and then 'nerf'.
Tell that to leadership. It originally didn't stack. Then it did stack. And now it doesn't anymore.
Either your information is out of date, or mine is. As far as I know, the history of the leadership trait is as follows:
1. The leadership trait was broken for a long time.
2. They fixed it, but the hull repair bonus was too strong. People were getting out-of-combat hull repair rates during combat.
3. They nerfed the hull repair bonus. The mechanics of the bonus have been altered. But the nerf also broke the trait again: the hull repair bonus didn't stack, and the subsystem repair bonus was missing.
4. They fixed the trait again. The hull repair bonus now stacks, and the subsystem repair bonus works.
well the purple boffs also may have subterfuge and 1 or 2 very good ground traits, which the rare versions most likely don't have.
but certainly there are folks that pay more because it's purple instead of blue.
