So basically... science captains are going to be encouraged to use the absolute WORST conceived ability in PvP (scramble sensors) because now it helps you kill your targets faster by keeping them from healing themselves?
All we're going to get now is Scramble spam.
Of course.... this won't be an issue if you play a Jem'hadar ship team with enough Attack Pattern Gamma's to keep your perception buffed. Those teams will be just fine.
Everyone else though.... here comes the PvP premade scramble teams. For those of us who play this game entirely for the PvP, guess we should start looking for something else to do.
I am almost speechless.
Phew! I am glad I am not a PvP player. I am glad I am a cold hearted singleplayer, that focus on one character only. Makes my life much simpler.
I am waiting for a namechange though. from Star Trek Online to something like Star Wars(!) Online. -if that IP wasn't taken already by that Lucas guy, that name would be more fitting. fair enough STO is set in the Star Trek universe, but it is really becoming a very paradoxial/parallel universe. Far from the original 'Star Trek'.
I am also waiting for a possibility to be discharged from starfleet, to be able to create some immersion as a frivolous mercenary without any bonds back to the Federation Fleet. At the same time, open up for the ability for my character to go visit Klink-planets etc, because there is nothing but bad coding that holds me back from being a rogue trader.
