Like all of our pre-order bonuses it gives the players who purchased the items at the select retailers something other people do not have, but all pre-order bonuses quickly get out leveled. So there is a balance.
With the exception of the Borg Boff. She can be used from levels 1-45 and onward.
There is actuely a bug with Assimilated Crusier that allows the player to get on the out side off certain areas of the map which allows them to shoot though a number off walls and not be attacked back, though this can also lead to said person droping off the map all togather.
Let this be an important lesson for everyone. Always make sure someone is actually cheating before you start accusing them of such.
I see this constantly in FPS games people get beat by something legit they did not know about or understand and instantly jump to the conclusion that the other person must be cheating. This is unproductive results in unneeded hostility among the players and frankly put is most often based on false assumptions.
If you do suspect someone of cheating then your best recourse is to communicate with the GMs / Moderators in private. This way you can avoid needless public accusations of innocent players and embarrassment if your wrong.
Poor Roy. He's kind of like the kid the cops always pull over because the town THINKS he's a trouble maker.
