Anti-proton weapons require your one of two admiral level skil specs.

For that price, they'd better kick some ass.

I like how this thread is titled AP weapons will ruin PVP when, clearly, with the stacking of RSP, the OP of FBPIII and the ridiculous SNB/VM combo that people still think there's something left of PVP to ruin. This isnt even getting into faction imbalances.

Always aim when you shoot, because from the hip missed the barn. Please read the original post, all of our shields were up. This is T5 pvp, not T1 or 2. Everyone that's pvp'd has had their shields knocked offline, it leaves a distinctive "...where the **** are my shields, oh ****..." thought in your brain when it happens. This wasn't it, it was worse.

I'm already a big fan of hopefully an eventual nerf of SNB, VM and even though I use it, FBP. I think space combat should take far longer than it usually does, even with focus fire, and the aforementioned skills ruin it.

Can't both sides have them?

Metagame sez, get load up on AP defenses.

IT will take a while for things to balance, FOTM is still moving more towards FOTW

at that point, I predict that we will see fewer "so what, learn to deal with it" comments and more "omg this is terrible and will kill the game" comments.

in the meantime, as a Klingon myself, all I can say is "so what, learn to deal with it". getting focused down isn't fun, nor is getting hit by Subnucleonic Beam (i've done it (except not using AP because I don't have enough marks yet), and i've had it done to me).

The second Fed daily, or the PvE one gives inferior Antiproton gear and thus moot point.

On topic I have used antiproton on many engagements and even check combat logs from time to time, I have never seen my weapons bypass shields before. In fact, I now swapped out to disruptors.

I've had this happen on my fed vessel while fighting T5 klingons in pvp as far as the shields dropping completely. Of course I can't cloak and sneak up on anyone....well I can on my Klingon ship which is pretty sweet I have to say.

lmao. Classic post.

When I read the "feddie bear" remark and looked at your avatar, I was thinking you were a Klink.

Now the irony of a Klink complaining about something in PvP when earlier in the game all they did was stealth **** entire PvP maps and called the feds names like "feddie bear".

So again, the response to you would be the same response the Klinks gave before. DEAL WITH IT

having been on the receiving end of klingon agression via cannons using anti proton, yes they are redicuous, cannons are rediculous full stop, i have epic shields, im in a science vessel and cannot respond to even heal myself if a klingon opens fire with those weapons on me, im dead in less than 5 seconds.
