I haven't used EPE for getaways since OB T1/T2. I doubt a stacking problem specifically related to EPE will harm the general combo of high Engine Power + Evasive Maneuvers. Guess we'll see though.

I think there's a general misunderstanding with the Emergency Power to X skills. They are used primarily for repairing damaged subsystems. Their benefits are relatively minor beyond that.

Emergency Power to Engines - When used in a specific sequence with Evasive Maneuvers, the speed modifier from this ability was improperly applied so that it was multiplied by Evasive Maneuvers. It should no longer matter which order you use these two abilities in - they will stack, but not multiply.
(Emphasis mine) Going by that text from the patch notes, it was a bug fix, not a nerf. Now that the bug has been corrected, they can more easily evaluate whether the ability needs to be buffed, nerfed, or left the same.

Lets say, before you had 20 speed, EP-E does lets say +40 speed, EM does 500% speed. While before you got (20+40)*5, now you get (20*5)+40 ie. 300 to 140, thats more than half the speed.

And the main repair ability is engineering team anyway, so using it for repair engines is silly. There is great imbalance in the effect of various EP abilties.

EP-S gives 3 bonuses, EP-E gives 2, EP-A/W gives only ONE...thats sooooooo balanced.

just give up, your not gonna win the arguement, get one of them EPS dohickies (cant remember the name, im tired) and slap full power to engines and evasive out, you'll still get a good 15 km if you suck.

But thats not about it. Its about even more increasing the gap between EP skills, in favour of EP-S BO abiltiy. Really if the logic behind this, is to force all people in 2xEP-S,3xRPS, we wont see many subscribers after first month ://

Full power to engines is nothing, compared to the speed boost of EP-E :/ Im more concerned about the fact, they dont balance/fix important skills, but pick on skills like this. If this how the developement of this is going, we have dark days ahead.

There are bugged skills like aux to battery, wich doesnt even make sense sometimes (the CDs), raising their ranks does nothing etc. But in their wisdom, they changed math on a BO skill, wich noone complained about ?

IT WAS A BUG FIX. the sky is not falling, the world will not end. If people quit over a bug that gets fixed they were better off leaving.

Wouldnt call it bug, rather different math. But stop yelling jesus, there are tons of different other skills wich needs "bug fixes", this one was on the end of the line, not at the start.

I think it was causing problems in PvE more than PvP. People were lol comboing bosses like that crystal entity thing (who does pve eh?) for stupid amounts of damage.

that was purely evasive manuevers + full impulse for the short superburst of damage and then using ramming speed to smash for 700-900k
