Keep in mind, I am talking about admiral PVP here... Other ranks may not have this issue because they can't stack as many reverse polarity timers.

I'm normally an escort captain, and I am fully skilled for escorts... but I decided what the heck I'd try out a cruiser for PVP. Skilled it up with 1x hazard emitters, 1x sci team, 4x reverse polarity, 1x eng team and simply could not die in PVP. Any time I was actually at risk of my shields being low, I had a reverse polarity timer up and with hazard/eng team together my hull would never drop enough to die by bleedthrough.

Spent a good deal of time PVPing in the cruiser today and this link is just an example of a normal PVP game with the cruiser. I just win in DPS by time spent in combat because of no deaths.

All that said, I do not feel there's an imbalance in PVE. Cruisers are right where they need to be in that case. Just the repetition of reverse polarity on BOs becomes insanely powerful in PVP and may need some kind of limitation.

Blah blah about my weps being on autofire

this is a known issue and was discussed previouos when klinks were (and prob still are) doing this.
not sure if cryptic is dealing with it as no response in the other threads i watched ever surfaced from them...

Game would be improved, and BO loadouts more meaningful if nothing the same stacked, imo.

Would rather see diminishing returns on ability chaining/stacking. The existing DR system works great... for consoles. All they have to do is apply it to abilities.

When they fix the abuse of VM then I will agree to RSP being abused. Until then shut it and continue to enjoy the gankfest of 7+ Feds per 2 Klingons every friggin match.

Well I don't really care if they fix it in a hurry. I will just continue to fly a reverse polarity stacked cruiser in PVP until they are balanced.

VM is not OP - i have omega and it breaks it all the time. as your klink counterparts like to tell everyone else - L2P.

Autofire=Lazy.

Thought about picking another target?

Do you rush in and select the player with the most levels over you in pvp too?

I have heard of people stacking VM x 3 too.

IMHO they should stack I adds to II, II adds to III.

There will be more adjusting so that the few apparently OP skills will be toned downed making other skills more meaningful.

I'd rather see it limited to 2 of 1 ability as the max. 2 reverse polarity wouldn't be nearly as bad as 4-5x, and it would still allow 2x rapid fire, HYT, other CC and CC break abilities.

As a side effect of limiting only 2 of 1 power, you would also be restricting science ships to only 2x viral matrix, which helps to deal with problems of spamming viral on people.

Klingon crusiers can't get Omega. So I should be forced to play a pig of a carrier to get Omega? The problem lies in the ship configs. Klingons have crap access to the same powers as Feds.

Why don't you play up to T5 Klingon and then try and comment.
