Huh.

I'm trying to care. But I don't.
Yep, same thing for me.

Hm. My escorts are just as lethal today as they were when escorts were fotm

Cruisers got more dangerous but they still pop like they always did before.

Spec a little more defensive, add another hull heal and watch a loldem cruiser fail over and over to kill you.


inb4 "well i know this one cruiser guy who eats escorts alive blah blah blah" yeh okay good for him, he is the exception to the rule.

A solid escort pilot will either stalemate or kill even a competent tac cruiser most of the time.

My thread is more than 6 months too late but people still think that every non escort is up or useless.


And rylanadionysis my scimitar (pve build without epte or any acc mods, no a2b , cannons and a single torpedo ( i try to keep a canon loadout ) ) don't care for a2b spam in pvp and is still able to kill stuff,even a2b scimitars,avengers or whatever the next a2b capable ship is. They only thing which is able to destroy me is science magic/hax.

You fly a Scimi yet you're apparently feeling inadequate in it against, say, an Oberth?

Do we have some performance anxiety issues going on here?

Are you concerned that, despite flying the biggest, most OP ship in the game that somehow you don't quite measure up to the Big Kids?

A good STO player can fly anything and do well with it. PvE, PvP, STF. It does not matter. P2W doesn't matter either. Give an incompetent Captain the very best of everything and he/she will still find a way to fail. Epically at that.

I tried A2B/DEM because I became interested in it since it was popular. It was fun for awhile. But since everyone else was doing it, I wasn't that special snowflake I've always dreamed of being. Tried some different things because I wasn't really wanting that "One Build to Rule Them All" thing. My Eng toon flies a Sci ship. He doesn't need A2B or Grav Well to be effective. He's best described as a Ship Medic who does a little shooting at the Bad Guys on the side.

It's not A2B which is OP. Nor DEM. Nor Marion. It's... Tact Captains. Tact Captains have abilities that can make em do up to 3x as much DPS as you. Heck, stick a Tact in a Science Vessel, and he will do better than a true Science Captain. And that is sad. And sick.

If you nerf A2B, you're really just hurting Engineers. A2B/BFAW is the only way for Engineers and cruisers to be still in this game, and not look like a complete fool. That Tact Captains adopted their style, and in doing so made it OP in their hands, well, see the above paragraph.

LOL... How did a miss this thread? Hmm, what if aux to battery was an Engi captain skill only? If engineers need A2B to do damage, just make it for engineer captains only.

Yeah, but then engie captains could A2B in everything.... There's a less OP solution somewhere. My research team is on it

I'm going to try this A2B in a B'rel on a tac captain I think... shouldn't be OP at all should it
Which one will you be?
