Please refrain from making suggestions that make power creep even more of an issue than it already its.

Hypothetically speaking this change would just be a straight up damage and survivability buff to escorts. 2 things they already have too much of.

It's being changed because it has gotten to the point where people could use a 3-piece Borg set combined with a MACO shield and be unkillable. It's a balance issue. Seriously, go into PvP and fight an Odyssey that is setup like this; you'll be there for a while. God mode is being turned off, so stop crying about it.

If cruisers are the problem, deal with them. Don't kill one of the biggest ways escort captains have of surviving in pick-up games with useless team members. You cannot rely on it, so if your answer is "depend on team healing," you have no answer at all.

Well, you can focus on a wider damage gap between tank and DPS and then go the enrage timer route with boss design.

I fly an Advanced Escort. I use the complete mk XII MACO set; the only thing from the Borg set on my build is the console. I can tank like a boss in elite STFs. Believe me, the 3-piece Borg/MACO shield combo is not the only way for an escort to survive.

Because elite STFs are truly indicative of the sort of balance considerations one must take when working out tank and dps numbers.

So, the moral of the story is: Grab all the endgame STF gear you can now, because the next equivalent will not be worth the horrendous grind.

indeed but put it on your ships and not in the bank , but what gets me is the fact atm each item costs 5 edc's apart from the console . so why have they made it so much more expensive/harder to get these items ? , 20000 dilithium and 250 omega marks as well as other stuff for items that cost 5 datachips what idiot is going to get mk x stuff at those prices ? . i dont think i will last in sto till my subs run out mid december , i knew people were complaining about the maco stuff etc but the borg stuff is way over priced
