Am I seeing this right? The simple act of moving a tribble from your inventory to your character puts the tribble in a 15 sec lock out? Really?!? now tribbles are time gated? Frozen boots locked out for 15 secs as well. I understand (but disagree) with the STF marks nerf but were players collecting their 1 mark every hour too fast?

What next, when beaming to your starship it has to "warm up" before it will move.

I think this to stop people carrying 2 of item X in their inventory, using one and then slotting the other to avoid the cool down on the first.

I mean like, two subspace jumps, use one, switch for the other, boom. Cool down avoided.

Bit more complicated (need to be out of red alert), but there you go.

No, sorry, I didn't refer to your post.

I was referring to the OP's post about having Tribbles on 15 sec cooldown.

Ah yeah. They did this to all devices. Any time you equip a device, it puts it on auto CD. Apparently it was to avoid exploits or something.

Makes sense now to quell the great tribble exploit of 2014!

you guys are wrong,....

The tribble swap was a well known exploit and thus has been prevented to lower the power creep as well as the rep traits.. both were the mayor factors in the power creep in this game, that why these are handled first

How on earth is a tribble considered an exploit or power creep, in fact how is any device for ground an exploit...
