With the Excelsior being common now in PvP and the Breen Cruisers using Target Systems 3, there needs to be counters with this ability.

For instance, tonight in a PvP match, I witnessed Tactical players using Target Subsystem III (in 1 on 1 combat) and disabled a players shields 3 times by using this. Which is a death sentence for Science Ships and Escorts.

Which is quickly becoming an abused ability. So I ask Cryptic to add in a counter so this ability be more managable.

And what if Emergency Power to Shields handled the first outage, and then you used Emergency Batteries for a second, then get hit again for a third time by the same individual. Then what?

Science Ships and Escorts only have those 2.

You cant win them all......Altho I do think its broken it's only supposed to be a chance to disable not a garantee. But if you use beam target weapons it keeps people from using this.

Yeah, but a Science Ship's Level 1 Target isn't going to surpass a Level 3 by any means. And Science Ships are pretty bad as is.

1)Then your EPtS should be off cooldown and available again.

2)Then your teammate cruisers should start with healing.

3)Then itīs time to hit evasive and blast out and NOT stay in the fight.

or

4)Then itīs time to die due to superior tactic of the opponent and incapability of the team to get rid of the threat.

You can have 2x EPS for 100% uptime, you can have ET to clear the debuff, you can also use shield battery...engineers can have EPS also.....Azurian ? ARE YOU NUTS again ? Is this another ability you have difficulty to deal with ? USE COUNTERS, you dont need any more of them. This game already screwed so many abiltiies because of the omnipotent counters and made it dps/healing contest.

Now really, everytime you encounter somethings, which you have difficulty to dealth with ,you create one of this threads. You just refuse to use counters, and expect all abiltiies to be nerfed until they fit in yout image of star trek.

there are several counters already, learn to play.

Engineering Team I-III
Shield Batts
Emergency Power to shields I-III

And before someone says Science team works, umm no, it doesn't. If your an engineer, Miricle worker works to. If you still can't seem to get your shields online, hit alt-f4 lol. Seriously, theres enough counters, I've been beatin on Breen all night with Engineering team I and Emergency Power to shields I and not had a single death on advanced. When your counters are on cool down you still have 3 other shield faces. Try using those. Got 4 shots to get it right that way.

Nuff said, lets move on.

I agree there are enough counters to this ability, and its not 100% that it will knock out the shields, of course the lower your shield settings the better the chance. If its such a pain then go get it yourself and use it then you will both be on the same ground, or better yet target weapons 3 then you don't have to worry about your shields dropping.

It is not a garaunteed shield dropping ability, but it does get the % chance each time it is used in combat.
Plenty of counters exist for it and its is not over-powered at all. Hell its been nerfed once already and doesn't need a second nerfing.
