This thread is created as a Public Service for those of you that have not already adjusted your builds to accomodate the RSP balance pass enabled today, and came to these forums to vent.

Rather than post individual threads about the topic, please add your particlar whine here.

IMO the majority of active PVP'ers will be either a) unaffected or b) deliriously happy.

I fall in category B. YMMV.

Cheers,

Waff

I shed a tear of "meh".

EPtS lasts longer anyway, and two copies can be chained perfectly for as long as you please.

I expect the players who will be most effected will be tactical officers in cruisers, since many have been chaining RSP to avoid a real tanking rotation. Excelsiors will be the hardest hit, since they have fewer Engineering slots, and can't use many offensive Engineer abilities if they intend to have sufficient defense.

I wouldn't call heavy handed nerfing "balance". I think its only going to scare away more inexperienced and less skilled people from PVP, unfortunately.

But why the needlessly inflammatory thread title? This isn't a PSA at all with a title like that.

I'd think it would teach them the right way to tank.

I didn't use RSP until I started PvPing a lot; it was the answer to the "one-shot". But since then resistances have been buffed enough that they make a better solution. Hopefully newer players will lean towards EPtS rather than RSP now.

I don't think that is likely unfortunately. I think more will just get frustrated and quit rather than learn to adapt. And Tac escorts are still exceedingly dangerous even with EPTS.

My main fear is that it will make My Escort that much weaker.
We escort pilots dont have alot of enigneering slots or abilities.
We cant heal and we cant defend very well.

We are already reliant to cruisers and sci ships to stay alive in pvp unlike cruisers or sci ships. Now one of the only powers that can actually keep us alive in baltte is going to be even weaker.

Escorts are the ones that keep getting the short end of the stick around here. Keep making Cruisers tougher while weakening one of the few defenses escorts can use.

/agree
but i'll adapt, perhaps by learning to call for more heals more often.

One thing I haven't picked up on very well, how is it exactly we are supposed to take advantage of the extra hull and shields? do i understand correctly we must be specced fully in both sets of those engineering skills? If so, say bye to the antiproton weapons.

yeah, escorts are toast now again. EPtS is a joke if your prim aim for halve the enemy fleet.

I can't get a full run of rapid fire off now bevore i'am dead. So cruisers and battle cruisers are even harder to kill now then priviously and a good cruiser was hard to kill already.

I would say that RSP is nearly useless now as other heal or reistance buffs are much more versaile now.
