Well we all know this had nothing at all to do with balance....

However this looks like its going to be one of those happy accidents that happen for Cryptic now and then.

Great change.... death to the glider / heal boats.... and one less heal for people running 3 piece + maco sounds fantastic to me.

My main character is Klingon. I don't care about 3 borg + maco. The borg set, including console, is the only set that you can mix with other sets and get two bonuses. Why not leave it that way?

No, i was just saying that the more recent changes have been due to pvp "balance"

Are you running elite difficulty? thats when having better gear is good.

on another note, these 2 sets together seem really cool.

My guess is that it's the same thing that the Borg Tactical Cubes and Gates are using right now, and those hit you in a 'pulse' fashion that periodically damages you as it's on you though it's essentially negated by BFI or any hull heal really, it's only dangerous if you've got nothing to pop.

If that's the case then it's a major **** up by Cryptic given the bleedthrough potential that's already out there.....

I don't know about the slander, but changing something I paid for is FRAUD and they have already done that so....

They should leave the Borg set alone as some of us did the HARD version of the STFs way back when to earn it.

Used to be Cryptic left stuff that was already in game alone to avoid the FRAUD moniker, they need to reinstate this policy.

As for devs in fleets getting stuff modified to suit their play style, I believe that would be grounds for termination.

Which pieces of the Borg set and Maco set are recommended?
If your post is anything like, "I have a sandwich so you can't be starving" it's time to rethink posting.

I'm not keen with them fiddling with the Borg Set, best leave things well enough alone. Especially when people been comfortabily using them for so long.

As for Devs (or former Devs) being in player fleets, I don't mind as long as there is no favoratism shown to that fleet.


I played with one person on the PW / Cryptic Team on several occasions, and I know that person never abused their power even in the slightest. In fact, that person didn't exactly like to mix work with fun. Not sure about the others though.

if your referring to what i mentioned earlier. it WAS the Borg console + deflector + engines and the Maco Shield. because of the way the procs worked, they worked the best with higher capacity shields. if you didnt have maco usually another high cap shield usually a covariant would be substituted till you got it, or were KDF side.

I don't believe there's been one...I made a post in one of the threads that was merged in, but removed it when i saw another mod working on the same thread. I thought I'd Ninja'd my post out before anyone saw it


That is unless I missed something else.


I'm issuing a few warnings over the last few pages, please try and avoid discussing fleet names and player names guys. It's against the rules. Discussion on the power changes is of course welcome.

EDIT: Issued One Warning, my bad it wasn't plural, but please be careful guys.

Cryptic has already stated that they don't have the resources to focus on PvP. They could basically axe PvP and it wouldn't make a difference in their profits. Although they may care about the state of PvP, they'd be very reluctant to upset any sort of PvE balance.

I was referring to elite. People actually play on normal difficulty?
