Ahhhh... So it's not a cloak per say, which would be useful... I don't see why that would warrent a nerf of that magnitude. They should send out a MINOR Nerf since it's a minor power. Not a MAJOR Cut the arm off an escort and give them a cute little power trade off.

Obviously you didnt try it on tribble (aka test server), else you wouldnt say its useless..it works like cloak, and exactly as cloak on MES III, it just doesnt drop your shields !!. Just remember my words when season 2.0 hits, and everyone will use it.

Isn't the Defiant still better than the Raptor? I mean, it got a better maneuverability?

The 2 Commander slots were a failure in balancing the ship. Making the ensign slot universal would again be a failure in balancing the ship. And I am not talking about balancing against Klingons, I am talking about balancing it against other tier 5 ships. Why fly an Advanced Escort or Fleet Escort if you can have the same BOs as they have, plus cloak, plus better maneuverability?

The real solution is more ensign level tactical powers. Snix said that this is something they plan post season 2.

My only problem with the Defiant is that it has cloak instead of just being the toughest escort. That's what I found the most iconic about the Defiant - it took hits like no other ship of her size.

When I started STO I trained one of my BOffs with that skill.

its basically an invisibility power that only works when no-one is looking (ah-la Mystery Men)

that BOff is now neglected, unwashed and unfed in the dark corner of the ship.

That was my other suggestion in my OP. If a universal slot isn't an option, then give us more ensign skills. If they do, then I'm happy.

Problem is, in-game, the Defiant is far more fragile than we've seen in the TV series.

Though, the new model updates are really fantastic. Capt. Logan did a magnificent job.

let's not argue to death if MES is working or not, we'll all find out in a week anyway. I'm wondering why they chose to knock out a BOF ability since one of the problems some players are having is with BOF's and not being able to use them to their full potential. Not too mention all the extra BOF's that you get and don't use... at all. The Dev's are just adding to a problem that still has yet to be fixed.

We need to use all the BOF's to their full potential, and with nerfs like this, it's not getting better, it's getting worse.
