# 1 Aggro about aggro
09-22-2010, 09:11 AM
So, I made a Betazoid science captain specifically because I had a plan in mind for ground combat. I have four klingon science officer BO's with three of the specialising in AOE exposes, two of which also do aoe damage. They all have split beam rifles.

I send them into combat, focus-firing initially but after that, I just let them go on the AI. Klingons have 10% increased threat. They all use their aoe exposes and split beam specials as the very first thing they do, so they're hitting everything.

Betazoids have 20% inherent threat reduction. I do NOTHING. I'm not even out front at the initial attack because I set the position of the boffs ahead of me before sending them in. I just stand there, and yet... I get focus-fired by the enemy.

So, I round a corner and draw them all to me. I then use my sci officer aoe placate. I then die from focus-fire.

If, after all of the above, I can still die from focus-fire, then the ******n aggro system is broken. Fix it.

I strongly agree.

It's not nice when my tac officer gets a little overzealous and pulls another group of mobs, who all proceed to.... ignore my tac officer and try to mow me down with focus fire.

I suspect that the bridge officers actually count as pets of your character within the game engine, which means they commute threat to you under many circumstances. But that's just a guess.
