# 1 Massive Changes No Respec
05-17-2010, 03:27 AM
I just read through all the new changes and noticed that there wasn't going to be a free respec to any of the RA5's or BG5's. Is this a bug or is everything working as intended?

I thought since that they nerfed/changed quite a lot of things that they would at least give us the chance to rework some of our builds.

I have been running a Science ship since OB times, and I have being loving it, truely loving it.

Then nerf, after nerf after nerf. I just can't take this anymore!

I do not want to play as any of the other Officer Types since they are all so one-dimensional, such as the pew-pew-pew-get-focused-go-boom Tactical/Escort style gameplay or the oohhhh-sooo-sslooww-beam-broadside snoozefest that is the Engineer/Cruiser gameplay.

Being a Science/Science Vessel player allowed for a variety of fun and sometimes quick thinking challenges to PvP, such as when and where to use certain abilities (Tykens, for example, very situational to use effectively) or when to perfectly time a high specced Tractor beam to maximize the DPS it would increase.

Science wasn't a class that would pre-buff and then sploodge its load at the start of a battle for insane Alpha Strikes. It was a class for thinkers, for people who wanted different style of gameplay from that of killing people only with high numbers. Pew Pew is for the few few.

What I am asking for is at least a RESPEC to deal with all these damn nerfs!

You've nerfed everything about Science because some of the QQ'ers on this very forum. The tribble testers have the ear of the devs, I have loaded up the TTS channel, and I listen to some of the brown-nosing going on in there and it's quite frankly disgusting, and these few players seem to have a much larger chance of interacting with the devs, and generally I've found these players to be no more informed than other players!

This is not acceptable!

I paid for this game, I pay to be able to play which character I want, and now the majority of my fun is being taken away.

This is not acceptable!

I paid for this game many times, I paid because originally it was fun and sometimes engaging. This is no longer the case.

This is not acceptable!

Currently I am away in Europe and have not had chance to play with the upcoming nerfs/changes, I will test for one week when I eventually get back. If I am not happy, consider my subscription ended.

This is not a threat. I just am so sick and tired of the fun being sucked out of this game for a few forum whiners.

This is NOT acceptable!

# 4 Nerfs - yea, but also balances
05-17-2010, 10:17 PM
Been playing around with it myself, Its not as bad as people make it out to be, I play a Sci/Sci and while the cool-downs are longer the healing is better (more powerful) and with the DPS nerf its far eaisier to keep escorts alive in pve as they don't pull aggro as much.

In pvp I don't get alpha striked as much so I can actually use my Sci ability's.

Healing is easier, and a respec is 20,000 starfleet credits, I have 80,000 atm and nothing else to do with them, so I don't care.

I say Go for gold cryptic, changes def needed and endorsed.

I love the fact that Phoxe was removing a post in this thread and didn't even take the time to justify anything that is being done.

The argument "For balance!" isn't good enough for me, at all. The last patch (1.1) made PvP so, so, so balanced it was ridiculous. The only problem left was with TSsX stacking, and all they needed to do was introduce a full counter to it, such as engineering team
In my opinion if three or four people use Target Shields on you, your shields SHOULD go down! Why is it that if you get focused then you get extra defense against multiple people? Why is it that people get penalised for playing as a team because of a few dedicated PUG players moaned about not being able to take on a fleet of people?

I, myself, do not play in a PvP team, sometimes I might team up with people for a few matches because it's quicker to get into a game. Not because it's easier to stack TSsX on people!

The new cooldowns are there to what? Increase the length of a firefight in Space? Is that what we're really going for? That seems to me like we're catering for the more casual players when in my opinion PvP should be more focused for the hardcore players, those that wish to test their SKILL.

Allowing those that wish to sit on these forums to dictate your game is counter-intuitive to the game as a whole because these people are not your whole player-base!

And Phoxe, if you read this, please give me a response because I feel like I am just pumping money into something I feel could/was be/good. I love your game, or at least I did love it. I don't want this to turn into LOL I am leaving thread, but please, help me out here! I just want something to go on rather than "The Quest for Balance!" which is an old and tired way of saying "We ****ed up."

To be honest mate. Most of us do not know what is required to break rules anymore lol. It seems to be a fluid responce taking into account how the Dev feels at the time and if you mention the C, C and A words.


I agree there should be in my opnion a Respec with any chnges that effect a player char such as skills, consols etc. However what would we need the C Store for if they offered us one!! This isnt CO it appears lol
