And even combine the new Borg set which consists of the console and 2 ship weapons. So possibly more visual Borg crap on your ship than ever before. Bound to make some people happy.
I wonder if equipping all 6 parts turns your ship completely Borg now.
Oh, I am glad cruiser finally get some love and a set that can help them do some dps, but why nor make the console work with both sets rather than nerfing one to make another...

I never had trouble competing with my cruisers. Just took a bit longer. Elite STFs can still be completed well within time.
The only thing that was impossible, was killing player escorts because they tank so well. Let's see, how well they hold out in a prolonged fight without the Regen procs or with weak shields.
Of course you still have your OP doffs to unnaturally enhance your tanking...

Because that would have turned this into a 6 part set...

Fine w/me. I've been using MACO XII + 3 pc Borg for a while myself and as much as I love it on everything (cruisers and escorts), they were bound to take that koolaid away some day. Might actually make PVP a little more interesting as well.. (also apparent by the fact that no PVP'ers have thrown a nerdrage post in this thread yet)

Though I have a compromise for you: You guys keep the overpowered borg set with the MACO shield and we cruiser captains get heavy beam arrays for us only that do spike damage on the Escort level. How does that sound?

And don't think you can delete your ridiculously elitist post before I quote it. You won't get away with it. Have the courage to take responsibility for your opinions.
Cruisers aren't meant to do damage like Escorts. This isn't RP Cruiser pwn Online.

Besides, the damage you can do in a properly built Cruiser is more than enough for the PvE content in this game.

Read my sig to learn how to make a proper build.

If you can't destroy an Escort then support the team Escort who can. It's called teamplay.

And as for tanking, it's not like they can't take shield distribution doffs.

STF's can be done with an all cruiser team. I was in one earlier - myself (Galaxy-X), two Starcruisers, a Regent and an Odyssey.

It did, of course, take a little longer than it would have had an escort or two be present, but we did, nonetheless, complete it (optional included - just!).

You know I agree with what you're saying. My response was to a guy who said cruisers are fail dps boats, yet he also expected escorts to have access to awesome damage and awesome healing. I was just suggesting that he shouldn't expect an advantage in his escort anymore, he should be able to accept equity between ship types.

And all I was talking about was that your awesome escorts have finally been reduced to something that makes them more equal with cruisers. You're the one who whined that escport captains will all ragequit the game because they could no longer be better than all other ships at everything.
