Star Trek. Champions. Guild Wars. Oh wait, you just asked for one.

Better for it if you ask me. Makes the players use strategy instead of imitating mediocre MMOs.

And once again, what kind of sad cruiser is only doing a few percent of damage?

STO, CO made by same company... fail..

guild war.. pvp... everyone is a tank mage (ie pick their own powers).. a different concept...

you take a cruiser, spec with epts, engt, sif3, and etc.. and go try to kill tact cube... you tell me..

read more...

wrt to the tact cube in infected, here is the usual sequence of event.
1. escort run in and grab the agro in short order.
2. escort run away when hit by shield neutraliser, else you die.
3. escort hover just outisde 10kn waiting for the sheild drain to wear out, or the agro to switch.
4. escort wait for a few (yes a few) minutes while 4 puny cruiser trying to dps the cube. droping the hp by only a few % and not taking the agro.
5. the whole fight eventually take a lot longer than it should, if only the cruiser can consistently take the agro.

Really? I thought I could pick my bridge officer abilities.

And you are going about that all wrong if you want to fight the Tac Cube. You need two versions of Power to the Weapons and equip a bunch of beams. For defense concentrate on hull repairs, resistance buffs, and enemy damage debuffs. Try an officer with Aceton Field. Will do wonders for the damage output of the cube. The Shield drain will make the shields useless anyway, so why bother apart from the Torpedo attacks?

And how would the fight go faster if everyone shot the cruiser?

mmo with no taunt.. farmville, solitare, sto forum /sarcasim agin
so because they have one we have to have one? they get a trophy, we all should get trophies?
this sounds more like a "im a escort i have dps but i get killed fast" topic
wait so we can be like the others.."im a ranger and i die fast..."

with high dps goes a short life. kill fast or die fast.
seriously this is just basic, i want to kill everything fast and not die foder now.

a dps escort with a healing cruiser behind it is a better tank than a tanking cruiser. Additionally, if you can't survive an STF then you may not want to try competative pvp - just saying.

edit: also the whole notion of "aggro" is complete bull**** because its obsurdly stupid. why would a boss character only attack the tank that obviously won't die when it can turn 3 degrees to the left and "instagib" another player. the answer: because it's programmed to.

i give up, let wait till they eventually make a STF (or a proper raid) with a proper diffcult boss who can 3 shot a dps class.

so your whole point is to keep re-posting the same thing as if we dont understand what you are saying?
Can you beat borg cube on elite settings in B'Tran? solo? bet i know the answer. re-think what you are doing. look at what is being done and adjust. pift, rsp will still give you a little shield bump with the drain on you if you are gonna go boom to a cube do it at close range so at least you can try to dmg the cube some more. not like there is a reason not to die like a DP like in those other games you are fond of.

The trick with the borg neutralizer is to HULL TANK, not shield tank. It's not that hard, seriously.

did i say i cant do inflected. heck i've over 300 valaor over 3 toons and can do infected in 45 mins.

5. the whole fight eventually take a lot longer than it should, if only the cruiser can consistently take the agro.

read it, LONGER than it should, because cruiser cant always keep agro does it force the dps class to run away.
