You haven't really said much except that you got blindsided by a skilled player. I fail to see how this makes PvP broken.

^ Oh so 1 shot kills in MMOs is perfectly okay, I see.

In fact STO balances this very well with having it as a slow high risk weapon, but with a potentially high pay-off.
You know what, I don't care. As I said I use them. My point about this whole thread is that it's retarded a BoP can delocak, and insta kill someone with 1 hit.

Guaranteed people would be crying out NERF if every single BoP did this tactic.



Oh see those wonderful Mods moved the thread from the Discussion Forum. So let the flames begin!

I use Tricobalts all the time and are actually speced into them and ever since they were added to STO, I managed to 1 shot somebody 2 or 3 times (which has been a year now). But this famous individual does it all the time and all thanks to the decloaking bonus.

But hey, its all in fun right?
i do a very specific combinaion that hardly has anythign to do with "decloaking bonus" the bonus is in i gain intiative, decloak andstun you before you react. then i cpb3 for 5k each face, bo2 for 10k+ and tric for 40k+ with optional quantums 10k each

luck helps. critical=death to most

Yes, oh glorious one you 1 shotted me. And congrats. But only thing you did was get me in a Tractor and Tricobalted me.

But you clearly show how stupid the system is if it can be so easily exploited you can 1 shot Cruisers.


And as usual, Cryptic doesn't care.

Honestly, I'm just about had it with STO. Just like the others who left, TOR is looking more and more attractive all the time.

I think it's ultimately fine. Tricobalts are exceptionally hard to use, especially with all the AOEs going off during a fight.

This is an MMO, not a FPS.
Um, yes. I am saying that one-shot kills are fine in an MMO. You got hit by a better player. That's hardly the game's fault. Revisit your ship's layout because I have never been one-shot killed in any PvP match. Even tricobalts launched at me from short range have never killed me in one shot. But then, my ship is tanked so it will take more damage than what the tricobalt puts out to kill me.

Are you flying an escort? I can tear through those like a knife through butter using my cruiser. It is no surprise a tricobalt can one-shot an escort.

Actually, a player should consider themselves lucky if they never have been 1-shotted. I've had that done to me before. Frustrating? You bet, but that doesn't mean anything. If, however, you find yourself getting 1-shotted a lot, I would look at your build, reaction time, and/or level awareness. I know that a BoP can decloak at any time on my aft when I am in PvP with the possibility of having been fully buffed and armed with a tric torp. I have to make my build around the possibilites with regards to player tactics.

Incidentally, I don't use tricobalt torpedoes...

YES

Yes they are ok... as long as it takes a ton of skill and luck to pull them off... why not. Man enjoy your time with Mini. Everyone who knows him will tell you he has practiced that move THOUSANDS of times. He fails more then he pulls it off which is why most other players don't follow his lead... however I will tell you I have replicated his build for fun and it is just that... a ton of fun. lol

Kudos Mini... next time please please please hit A for a 100k+ I want to see that as your new tag line.
