Pure and Simple it is not Star Trek, this is a Star trek MMO and so they have to stay true to the IP, you don't want CBS coming down on cryptic over the issue of weapon colors, this is also the reason why in Closed Beta they removed a bunch of Garish neon colors for uniforms.
It's an honest question.. if you don't like it or agree with me... Tuff
His not a troll, he speak the truth, you come across as very childish for wanting color weapons back that go against the Star Trek IP. Wanting to do such a thing in STO can only appeal to the immature. The ability to change weapon colors wasn't meant to make it in to the live game! There are many who are grateful not to see pink weapon fire all over the place by people like you!
Power-hue weapons are for 12 year olds, stop crying and enjoy your orange phasers.
I am not 12 i liked them. Your post how ever sounds like something a pvp whiner or 12 your old would say. Remember people the Klingon's new Moto is pvp is a good reason to cry This was a stupid nerf that severs only a small portion of player base who are to dumb to tell the difference between powers from effects and simply annoys:p the rest of us. Hint plasma sets you on fire and someday soon i hope to see you in a pvp zone and demonstrate that.
