Well, I too was sick of this problem. I decided that I would buy extra boff slots so that I could have a full set of different Boffs for each ship that wasn't shared with any other. it was working great till a couple of days ago. Now if I don't fly a ship in a few days the power tray is scrambled. Sent in a ticket that was worded tersely, but I don't expect a response. Mind you I now have 11 ships and hit the limit of 54 Boffs, but if we can't even get people with two ships to work, what hope do I have?

well i find it realy annoing that i allway mus setup boffs again and again too. Why it can be saved ?
it only foirces players to stick to only one ship (and shuttle) - and completly defeat purpose of having multiple ships.

This is my ship list of choices:

Tac Odyssey
Fleet Excelsior
Breen Battlecruiser
Both Mirror Escorts
Wells Temporal Vessel
Regent Assault Cruiser
Mirror Assault Cruiser (cause the MACO set 'really' makes it look like a 'mirror' ship. No joke.)
Galaxy Dreadnought
Ambassador Cruiser

...and the 1000 day tac-cruiser is in the pipe, come spring, and considering the Defiant and Tac Carriers, to play around with. (Money speaks, I think...)

...and I 'do' remember the tray power setup problem being fixed once. Let's get it fixed again, cause sometimes I wana blast things with cannons, and others just fly rings around Borg, and beam array and grav well them to oblivion. It 'would' be nice to save a few minutes by 'not' having to reassign power so bloody much. (Yeah, don't switch ships. Uhuh... whatev....)

It was only a minor annoyance pre-Season7, sometimes when you switched ships you'd have to reassign your boffs and do some minor tray housekeeping. I could deal with that.

But the current shenanigans are ridiculous. I have fleet-mates that refuse to switch ships just so that they don't have to go through this hassle every time, and the rest of us need to reserve 10-15 minutes before doing anything in a different ship to set boffs/trays/power/etc.

And not to mention the shuttle problem. My shuttle is still apparently my 'active' ship in my user window, even though it is obviously not the vessel I am currently flying. A bit difficult to compare equipment, or rapidly repair, etc.

This is all Season7/WW.

How about Devs fix these issues before moving on to creating new problems and cash grabs?

Yeah, I am NOT a fan of the scrambled power tray. Even setting BOFFs isn't as bad as dealing with that (though I agree there should be the option to select BOFF presets to avoid that problem).

Yep...I'm having that problem too.

yeah, i believe that if you don't reuse the same boffs on different ships, they do stay where you put them. but if you can only have 54 boffs, then that only allows for 10-13 ships (depending on 4 or 5 boffs per ship). honestly, i wouldn't mind having to have different boffs per ship if there wasn't a limit.

however, there is. they want us to keep buying their new shiny ships (and i have been...i have a pretty beefy hangar at ESD already (i've been around since launch (have the best buy preorder pets to prove it ), but have been playing seriously for only the last couple months)), but i only use one for the moment: mostly because of this.

give us saved boff and doff profiles. otherwise, people will find one setup they like and stick with it, rather than continuing to buy all the new sparklies you make available.

along with this, i believe you would have a net gain (from people buying oodles of new ships, rather than an extremely infrequent respec) if you put something like a multi-spec service (2000 zen per unlock, swtich between them at will, max of 4 per character or something) in the game, just for switching between different skill layouts.

you'd get a ton more of my money...just sayin

I'm at the point now where I just deleted the ambassador ships, if I add or remove any ships from my inventory is messes my tray up to complete randomness.

I don't want to help anyone train Boffs anymore, removing or adding a Boff scrambles my tray and it takes me a good 30 mins to get it perfect.

I refuse to switch ships or to a shuttle

I am not even going to try the new escorts or the dominion ships because of the mess.

But S8 is the priority now, no point in fixing stuff to make people stay when you can work on new bugs to push the rest away.
