09-08-2011, 11:19 PM
Hi i hope som devs see this .. first i most say this game is on the right track now it getting better all the time .. keep it up..

and i love the new torp spread we now have but now then the borg boss in the borg dse fire those you have like 0.1 % you will come out alive for you cant ant longer dodge that big grean cloude of torp that comming for you ... i whas thinking can the the boss get back the old way of fire torp spread?
so the players have fair chance to dodge them? If not can at least lover the amount of torp that are hit you to like 10 (think it is like 20 now)

Hmm the only near insta kill, and that's only with shields down, attack i've noticed from the Borg boss is the giant plasma ball of doom. Is that what you ate asking about?

I've noticed big volleys of torps being fired but apart from nuking a shield facing I don't really notice them doing any damage.

The plasma bolt will one shot you if it connects, regardless of how much hull/shields you have. Been hit with full shields and hull by it and got vaporized.


The torp spread will kill you IF it hits when your shields are down/really low. With moderate shielding, you shouldn't even notice any real damage. The real kick in the teeth is when the Borg hit you with their shield drain, and immediately follow it up a couple seconds later with the torp spread. That's really the only time the torp spread should get ya under most circumstances. Keep your shields facing the B'Ger up, and if you get hit with the shield drain either haul *** out of range or grit your teeth and try not to grab any aggro while staying clear of your allies until you can fire the shields back up.

Odd my assault is fine as long as my shields are over 50%, under depends on how many hull res buffs I can get in before impact.

Not the plasma balls, no one gets hit by those after the 1st time, just shoot them on the way in. The attack he is talking about is a single target torpedo spread that hits pretty hard, but can be withstood. I say leave it alone because the boss mob should be something that could have a good chance of smacking a ship down in one hit.

Sometimes I let it hit 'cause the death animation is so cool or Ablative is up on my Intrepid

Oh fully agree here, tis a big attack from the volley as you'd expect from such a ship. Makes the fight interesting.

Gripen how are you specced? A few shield/hull buffs when you see the volley incomingshould be enough.

Do you use any Kinetic resistance armours? My fleet escort is running 1 or 2 Neutronium consoles, depending on the layout and manages to survive all the torpedo spread attacks. My hull resist is only 30% for kinetic damage but against a 50k hit that's a big reduction and makes it survivable if you use extra resist buffs like Aux to SIF, HE or PH. My Tac in a Defiant R is a little squishier with the reduced Eng console slots but even then it's just about survivable with the Mk XI kinetic resist armour (can't remember the name but I think it's Monotanium).
