What about the people who don't have Omega?
The first we heard of getting new PvP maps "soon" was in August of 2010. We're consistently told something will be coming with the "next" update. Absolutely nothing has come to PvP since launch.

I think it's finally time Cryptic stopped stringing us along, don't you?

Even so... that's OP.

2 EWP every 45 seconds is ridiculous. That's giving players 2 free LtC Eng abilities on top of the free LtC Sci ability in the form of Tractor Beam 3.

And as far as the whole wing being on CD... just pop out a new wing, and the CD is reset. Yayyy.

It's just going to clutter up the battlefield more, cause ridiculous amounts of frustration, replace player skill to the point where they're going to be more of a crutch, and cause horrendous lag. Remember how STO can't even render a lot of torps/GW/EWP as it already is?
Respawning a wing doesn't reset the wing's abilities.

And yes I hope you turn your brain on when you see EWP on a map. It's like mines, you can avoid that and nullify the skill.

I think that is very accurate, that's how they've designed every NPC up to this point.

What about them? People who don't have Omega can get stuck in so much junk these days that I question to what extent they would even notice the difference.

In all seriousness though, that would be an issue with any possible counter; unless it was something like subnucleonic beam, which just makes it go away without doing anything else.
Exploration suggestions thread - give it a read

BTW, you'd pronounce it 'Cap'n Manks'

I protest the removal of exploration clusters

Yeah, except you can't see EWP half the time.

Heck, I USE EWP and I can't even see it most times I pop it. I just Evasive around and hope that it's catching people.

1 EWP alone can (and does) cause some lag. Can you imagine what a bunch of it is going to do?

And how are you expecting to NOT to be completely screwed for movement half the time? A single player using these can utterly dominate with movement control.

I noticed Elite Scorpion Fighters on the OP's picture... Are those the same we get from Romulan T5 Reputation? They seem so, anyway.

They are indeed the Elite Scorpions from the Romulan T5 reputation, undoubtedly included for comparison with the new "new' Elite ships. I don't believe they're purchasable through the Fleet vendor, though.
If you feel Keel'el's effect is well designed, please, for your own safety, be very careful around shallow pools of water.
