No one is stopping you from running a mix of omega and maco sets. Its not as regen-y or impenetrable as 3borg+maco shield... which is the point! :/
What about the people that did not run 3-Borg + Maco?

What about the folks that ran 2-Borg + 2-some other set? Perhaps they ran three of those 2+2 toons? Perhaps now they're looking at completely rerolling the toons?

Perhaps they might complain?

Perhaps?

Run your prefered 2-set + maco shield. That's how I'd adapt. With the plasma torp in the weapons group, I'd try:

DHCx2, beam, torp, purple 2-piece Reman, macoshield, Assimilated.

LOL, rerolling for a small gear change. If you need to do that your build is rather weak. But trust me it will have very little consequence if you don't respec because a good build is a good build, whatever gear you're using.

Hey, I appreciate the reply - and - it's my fault for not stating that I was coming from a PvP PoV - but yeah, on the PvE side I can see much better ways to adapt. Way different story from that angle, imo.

I'll lose the fluff aspect I had - will have to see if that matters enough or if I can't find some other fluff or if that's it. I'm not a major source of income for PWE by any means, so it's not a threat sort of thing in the least.

Dookie happens - can still be frustrating though.

Um, going from a 2+2 set where the toon's been completely built around those two sets on a particular ship - yeah, that is going to require a reroll.

edit: I suppose it seems silly to do a reroll over the loss of a 1% proc. The thing is - the toons are not built to take advantage of the 3-set bonuses from the main set. The individual part of the set that would be replaced to get that 3-set would also be the wrong part given the character's build. The BOFFs, DOFFs, skill points, the ship, etc, etc, etc - was built around concepts involving those 2+2 sets. Like I said in the other post though, it's just fluff - fun - I'll either find something else or I won't.

edit2: Perhaps it was that wtf kneejerk reaction - but in looking at two of the three in question, tbh - I'm fine just keeping them as they are - I like flying them. I actually see an opportunity for the third that did not exist previously that I'll do a reroll to include the wep/con set.

edit3: Who knows? I'll just keep doing what I'm doing and do something when I have to do something...

Nerf,s are ok, but this doesn't go well with build customization and combining different bonusses, which is a tad sad imo.

so will the full borg set also include some specific buff where certain weapons are concerned? like enhancing disruptor or plasma weapons, for example? that would be cool

I agree there needed to be a change, but I disagree that you needed to remove the console. The fixes suggest by the community about adding consoles and other things to existing sets so more variety would of been way more welcome. Most of my escorts fly 2 borg and 2 omega, most of my sci fly 3 borg with omega shields and my engi fly 2 borg and 2 maco. Congrats, you just screwed over 9 Federation characters that I have spend HOURS on grinding MK XII Omega and MACO gear on.
