Well, I like em. Romulans are hard and though - the way all enemys should be later.
Yes, the magai got an incredible maneuver-ability...i think they messed up the bird-of-prey and the magai inertia...should someone look at.

If you can't bring them down you do something wrong.
In most missions you got 1 of those or at least you could pull that way that you just have to handle with one.
My Killway (Tier3 Escort but did same with escort Tier2 just with one more approach and less BO specials):
Tachyon-beam - Torp High yield II - Attack Pattern Omega - Attack Pattern Alpha - 1/4 impulse - FIRE...Fly frontal to enemy until Magai starts orbiting. Evasive Maneuvers - full speed - 180 turn and fly away. Beam overload and back-phaser - again torp-highyield II (should be ready now) - kill with rear quantum torp.
Some times I manage to kill them off before I've to turn cause my first phaser salvo disables their shields (BEST change ever. Love the new Phazzors) and the first high yield + 2-3 quantum hit directly - done.

The plasma torp: I don't care about em...enemy is dead before my shields are down. If you got problems with that get your engineer emergency power to shields and engineering team.

The Battleships, well. Those are though boys. But as someone said: Easy is just to easy and boring.

the more challanging the more fun it is, so i like it
I'm with you. These Romulans are the first time I've felt like I've had to think in a fight in the last 8 levels. Very happy to have some real variety to the fight.

And as to the Magai, I just get to 10KM and then turn to keep about that far from them. In close those heavy torps are murder, but from a distance they're just a momentary distraction.

As i said i personally dont find 1 of them too hard, but what i dont like is that their photon torpedos do like 10 times more damage to shileds then your own bringing even cruiser shield to red just with that 1 salvo.

Torpedos should do low damage to shields and high to hull. I can imagine 3 of them blowing cruiser in single photon salvo easily.

You know that you can target them as they come towards you and blow them up before they reach you, right?

I have no problems at all with romulans in my tier 3 escort. I kill them in seconds. Even the battleships. This game is too easy. Im commander 5 at the moment.

*Sigh*
I am not talking about HI plasma even, but salvo of photons it fire few seconds before plasma taking almost all shields from cruiser.

Also its not possible to target HI plasma and kill it if for example your weapons are on 4 seconds cooldown after last fire and it take much less time for torp to reach you if enemy just get behind you in second and fire it up from point blank as OP complained. (tho it happend to me just once out of cca 6 times i had to fight it)

if you would stop spamming your spacebar and leave one of the wide arc weapons untouched until the plasma torp is fired you wouldnt have a problem

I was able to destroy a +7 Mogai in my nova with frightful ease. Just keep your distance, when the Mogai used that speed-buff there is nothing from stopping you to do the same to keep distance. Or do you expect to just fly in and spam spacebar?
High level high yield torpedo salvo's used by NPC do hurt, but damn space combat is too easy as it is. NPC ships need some somewhat over the top abilities to cope with players.

And if you sir start reading you will realize 2 things:
1) i am complaining about damage they do to shield with photon torpedo
2) There is no way you can kill HI torp shoot at ponint blang as time needed for retargeting and activating weapon >> HI plasma fired from point blank position.
Ttho as i already saying 3rd time this is op complain not mine.

i can repeat myself as well: TEAM UP! let ur science buddy stop them with tractor beam if they try to get close.. figure out other strategies.. face the ******n challenge instead of whining bitter solo-carebear tears
