They are not going to touch them, they are just going to let them rot just as broken as they always where. Also anyone who flies around engaging other races with these weapons are idiots. I always change weapons between borg and fleet when I chose to do one type of content over the other.

Getting tired of people calling them the best weapons in the game. They are not, as one of their modifiers only proced 7.5% of the time and then we find out that half the borg aren't even classified correctly so they didn't even proc on nearly half anyway. Standard purple MKXII weapons with regular modifiers will preform better. Also fleet weapons are better... I win SB24 effortlessly by a far margin every time and even when joining late (like half way into the killing of the first 50 klinks) according to ACT in my fleet patrol escort with fleet weapons... even when flying along side a bug...

you're kidding right? there's actually an entire page on the wiki devoted just for the ones they've been telling the KDF since before launch.

I understand that yes, there IS a lot of nerd raging on the forums, it doesn't mean that people aren't with in reason for arguing against certain things. I think that there are times when there could be a little more constructive criticism, but that really never gets anywhere like the blatant nerd rage en mass like when they took away dilithium from STFs after telling us they were just lowering it.... which again, is a lot like lying.

what bothers me is that this opens up an entire can of worms of "working as intended?". As it stands i've never really seen much out of my traits which all give extra damage, and even in the new rep system, i'm not really getting any noticable bonus out of the new traits there. Adding 30 points to something SHOULD at least give some kind of difference, no?

I like Borticus, i've liked him since the early days of STOked and i continue to like him now as he's honest and about the players. I'm just really sad that he hasn't been back to clarify any of this stuff for us. He kind of dropped a bomb here and didn't stick around to help with the aftermath. Hopefully he didn't get in trouble with the bosses, but at the same time i'm sure i wouldn't be the only one who would appreciate a little more info on the status of things and what's not actually working like we're being told it is.

The super space shield heal is tempting over the proc ability. I find that there isn't a clear winner for me at T4. Amazing stuff.

They'd leave the Borg weapons alone. I still have them. The [Borg] mod still doesn't work, but they were essentially "welfare" antiproton weapons anyway, gotta have a draw-back somewhere.

I'll replace them with Fleet MkXIIs eventually. But in the mean time, they were good welfare weapons for progression. A tad sad to see them go.

They aren't responding much anywhere because they are in panic/patch mode after the disastrous S7 launch. Devs don't get much free time when they have to redo all the work again because of poor design decisions.

Some people come here to complain so they can fight to keep they game they love.
Some people come here to complain to make things easier on themselves.
The devs ignorance of the real game mechanics makes it pretty tough to know who is doing which.

dumb question.... so folks are liking the Fleet Weapons with [dmg]x3 [y mod] modifiers as opposed to hunting for weapons that sport [ACC]x3 or [CritD]x3 or some combination?

Granted... the Fleet Weapons are easy to get if you are in a given fleet, etc

thx

They're far more available and cheaper to get compared to MK XII [acc]x3, particularly for energy types like Anti-proton. [dmg] may be a weak modifier, but it's stacked 3 deep, with a 4th mod on top. If I'm understanding things correctly, the base DPS of a weapon is influenced by the rarity of the weapon, and fleet weapons are ultra-violet rarity pushing the base DPS higher than what you can get on the exchange. All in all, pretty nice for PvE. If you're wanting to constantly hit and crit fast high-Defense escorts in PvP, yeah, probably not your cup of tea unless you have something boosting your targeting.
