it does work, as long as it isn't that SS3 or high-skilled SS2 you mentioned. that's bs when those aren't cured

Thats the point... its a skill with no counter... that at least you could cancel before it landed if you where strategic and held your Sci Team.... now that's out the window. So its went from being BS as you say to being horse manure.

SS wouldn't be a problem IF:
1. Science team wouldn't bug out
2. Everyone & their mom didn't spam chroniton mines, fighters, and photonic fleet
3. Pre-mades had their own queue where they could disregard #2 and didn't face crush the casual players into a state of refusing to even queue.

When you look at SS by itself, it is a passible pve skill, now when you combine it with mines & a crappy ui it becomes win mode.

Actually even against a full auxed and specced scramble 1 that isn't reliable and your evasives can still miss fire.

This is a skill that needed the exact opposite treatment of what it just got. It needed a major kick in the nuts, not a shot of steroids.

the only truly reliable way to clear a scramble is to turn your camera away from everyone else so only you are visable then use sci team or to be out of range of everything and hit sci team

And if you run to get clear of your team to try to get rid of the scramble, you have at least 3 escorts on your behind...

No, they just want the PvP part of it dead, so they don't have to worry about balance and can market all sorts of wonderfully unbalanced ships / consoles / items on the C-Store.

You would think perhaps once the community would come together and say this skill is BORKED use and be shun....

Or we can keep driving our dwindeling population down even further. I might say I don't care anymore, but for some dumb reason I'm still here and even paying.

Cryptic is dumb... plain and simple. We don't have to be.
You said it. Cryptic looks at PvP and says "they must really love scramble, almost everyone is using it. Lets give them more of what they like" I have never been scrambled so much in my life. Whole premades spam it like its on the spacebar. I mean really. In a C&H match three ships attack me while at a capture point alone. That's three vs one, and they scramble me, twice. Are they trying to kill me, or PvP?
