# 1 Photonic Fleet Is Overpowered
06-09-2011, 12:41 PM
I think it sucks if you play Klingon side, you're pretty much forced to play a scientist.

My argument is this.

Equally geared/skilled/boffed a scientist flying a tac boat (escort) vs. a tac flying a tac boat (escort) will win, unless the tac has a lucky proc, which sucks.

It doesn't matter how much dps photonic fleet adds because its dps the tac could have used on the real target, which gives the sci the advantage.

I know people don't pvp much anymore, but challenges are still really big Klingon side and winning is important. That's the only pvp I'm talking about.

It's the tacs that should have the space toys to push their dps over the top.

I really liked leveling my tac... All I'm saying.

Photonic Fleet doesn't add nearly as much damage as Go Down Fighting, which is the Captain level skill for Tacs.

Also, there's nothing forcing you to attack the PF ships.

I dont worry about PF ships, & ignore them completely. The only pets i'm concerned about are the FS ships, with i just ignore or move away from, & the MVAM pets, which you ignore at your own peril. Fed side the BOP pets & Feklir's should not be ignored, the fighters are meh.
Just my opinion though.

Ok, thank you. I did not know that.

Guess I can enjoy playing my tac again

Thank you. I did not know combat pets fought either

What does FS and MVAM stand for?

I've played Sci-exclusive a while now, and my Vo'Quv set-up has always been based around PF.

Not b/c it's OP, but b/c there's a lot that goes with Sci that can really add to it's effectiveness.

Just with any other class, you've got to know what abilities to use with one another to get the most out of your class-specific abilities.

Most matches, I'm either ignored or a priority target, and Sci (even in a carrier) is still pretty squishy against a really good Tac.

PF is not over powered, but it can be deadly if you ignore it. I made a mistake on a 1 vs 1 with a Science Officer of ignoring their PF and ended up with a few torpedoes in my aft cargo bay. This is why it is wise to bring atleast one AoE attack with you such as FAW, CSF or TBR. PF has little hull and almost no shields; they go down in no time.

I agree that PF is NOT overpowered. I had a 1 on 1 with a Science Intrepid Captain and was able to remove the PF pretty easily with my Excelsior Refit (I am an Engineer Captain). I do agree that the PF is a valuable tool to the Science Captain and can be effectively used to overcome there enemies when used properly. I am currently leveling my first Science Captain and look forward to the awesome battles I will have in my Luna-class Science ship. Any advice on tactics for a Luna-class and how to effectively use the PF with TR, I am open ears. I am a LTC now.

As someone who levelled a Tac and Sci Lt. general on KDF side, I'll be one to disagree with the OP and say PF is fine. My Tacs (both of them) enjoyed PvP at every stage, including against max-levelled SCI ships, and my Sci Lt. General is doing just fine (although mostly relegated to a healing-oriented Varanus).
