Well that seems like an oversight.
It should iether weaken the extende's shields temporarily or cuase a system drain of some sort so as to be a balancer for its rampant use in combat.
Honestly it seems to be almsot justa PvP power anyways as its not used a lot in PvE unless teamed and doing elite. maybe.
Consequences for actions is something that STO is really hit or miss on, imo.
Are you kidding. THIS is probably what they do in their free time. Why fix broken mechanics in the game when they can read our threads and laugh at us tearing each other apart.
Tearing each other apart! That was the term I was looking for!
Thanks fallout23, if that really is your number.

Wayyy back when, I feel like it was almost a year ago(?), a bunch of fleet leaders and OPvP members met up on La Familia's Vent channel to discuss the state of PvP and the whole cloaked tractor mine fiasco (I think that's what we talked about, at least...) and a bunch of people said, "Oh, I know I may trash talk or whatever, but I don't actually mean it. I love playing with you guys!"
I think a big part of it is that we're suffering from a game that doesn't seem to change for the better, and we're kinda like a small group of people locked away in a very small room. At some point, we're going on each other nerves.
Or maybe think of an old couple:
"I saw you using Scramble Sensors!" Equals: "You let the lid of the toilet open again!"
