Will this be enough for the community to declare balance, and that pengs are OK?
What do you think?
Nope they need be unique.
Its been stated with the pendulum still in the sci part of the game and having low weapon energy cruisers and CC/Debuff Sci ships. Now it will just be team composition like this 1 escort and 4 other ships with 2-4 pengs a piece which means you could have 8 on you every 10 seconds and 12 on you before your HE comes back up. They need to have HE scrub it during the duration.
good change. my slow turning cruiser with 1 fore and 1 aft isn't terribly effected. im glad its not unique, and using more then 2 on a ship has been made useless, this is exactly what needed to happen.
