A bug that involved Romulan Liberated Borg captains and their skills once they chose an ally
It was and is still the best tactic to stand still and shoot frontal weapons 100% of the time. The increased penetration or dot does not change that. They should drop plasma fields on you, so that you are forced to fly out of it.
This is how most of my STF runs go, from an RP perspective
Tactical, fire all forward weapons!
Helm, one quarter speed forward
Rapid Fire those cannons son!
Helm, attack pattern beta one quarter speed reverse
Helm, one quarter speed forward
Gimmie a torp spread, oh and helm one quarter speed reverse
My Vor'cha died for the first time in forever, yesterday. I was tanking the elite tactical cube as usual, then suddenly I'm taking thousands of plasma damage per second from a fire and nobody threw me a HE. Full shields + full hull => full shields + dead, in moments.
I have noticed this. The STFs were actually very nicely balanced before and I am hard-pressed to figure out how this was seen as an improvement on any level. The only thing I can come up with is that they want to cut-down on the successful optionals so that people will complain less about how they now get nothing for it with the drops removed.
No changes were made to standard or STF Borg enemy NPCs alongside Season 7. A few new ones were added for the Into The Hive STFs, but their addition has had no impact on the abilities of their allies.
Plasma DOTs have always had 100% shield bleedthrough, and high-damage torpedoes have always been a difficult-to-balance issue (to put it nicely).
Borg damage was not increased.
Borg abilities were not beefed up.
That said, it's possible that Borg encountered in Into The Hive are set to a higher level than they are in other STFs. I haven't checked to be certain. But if they are, that means they are rolling on different (higher) damage tables.
Cryptic - Systems Design
Another way to save your ship is to change to full defensive power when the plasma DOT is on you, when its over, go back to offensive power.
What defensive power? Shield? Worthless, that's the problem: OUR SHIELDS ARE UP. The borg are killing us without breaking our shields.
As far as I know, there's no way to fight hull damage outside of passive repair and repair cooldowns. If it is, in fact, the plasma dot, then the only way to stop it is hazard emitters. And that isn't much fun.
