Yeah, this is what business as usual means.

Stealth nerfs. And Pay2Play C-Store ships. The first two major things under the PW regime ... the Rhode Island and nerfed blue phasers.

Future looks oh so bright don't it?
So bright I've gone blind

Why all this over the TOS phasers? I did the commission decommission trick once to load out a Excie with seven of them and it turned out to be schist, (yes I used a metamorphic rock in place of biological waste). At least till they do a damage range for common to unique weapons within a given Mk. Aside from looking cool they are commonly unique weapons with no special procs or bonuses that I have ever been able to find.

Though if someone has documented that there are hidden procs and bonuses, aside from leveling with you, to the TOS phasers I am all ears.

This!!! I loved my T5 Excelsior with 6 TOS Phasers, now I'm logging on and 3 of them are in the overflow bag.
They are weaker as the high-end MK XI, people who used them accepted that, so what's the problem? And let's not forget that with an active Beam Overload III all TOS Aft Phasers stopped working until the Beam Overload shot (who knows how many bug tickets I put in for this), so there was no tactical advantage in using them. The beams look much better than the standard fat beam shots, but mixing them with normal phasers looks just stupid.

And thanks for no notification in the patch notes at all, not that it might be somewhat gamechanging.

You answered your own question. People use them just for the looks and accepted that they are weaker than comparable phasers. So why was it necessary to do this and not even mention it, since we basically bought them for additional money. Valid questions I think.

Oh and btw, so they reduced the worth of the TOS Connie, which we bought from the C-Store. You can get millions of those TOS Hand Phasers or Lirpas and use them all at the same time, but the ship phasers are restricted now, thanks very much.

OK I'll buy that for an EC. Now where do I send that EC?

They should at least turn the blue beams into the proper color.

Its what they did with the hand weapons. took away the auto leveling ones from missions right before the auto leveling ones from the C-Store hit. This is most likely the same thing, only doing it to another C-Store item.
This.

My C-$tore sense is tingling...

Send it via PM to Hravik as a bet for his T 2.5 Connie theory, I may join if there are ECs left after refitting my Excelsior again with cannons now.
