I guess if you do cry enough you can get what you want eh turtle heads.
Perhpas one day it wont be like that maybe but im not crossing my fingers anytime soon .
I really wish I could use Battle Cloak on my T1 BoP. Sadly, a very vocal group of Federation players went on a forum crusade to have it removed. Completely ignoring the fact that at Level 8, while still in Tier 1, their Science Officers got the skill Sensor Scan, which is the counter to cloaked ships.
I guess what I'm trying to say here is Pot. Kettle. Black.
I've never used MES, doubt i will, only time i complain about cloak is when a BoP is getting hammered runs behind an asteroid and cloaks, is it a valid tactic: yes, is it annoying as hell: yes, but i live with it.
It was an op skill not working as intended. It got what it needed. Expect other skills to go the same way. No MMO launches with perfectly balanced skills that all work the way the devs wanted them to. Expect more changes!
