Save your C-Store points now, guys. With a 131 point skillpoint boost (99 skill, 32 points from consoles), it's returning exactly 2% to each power system.

2%.

I only had the 32 points before the patch, and was getting 15%. So it looks like they've crushed this one.

How much % are you getting out of it? And what are you skilled into? I maxed flow caps, and am getting a whopping 2%.

Shoot..I have no idea what pecentage I get...
I have it on a Grumba and a BoP, both with all cannon and turret loadouts,
With CRF 1 & 2 I can keep firing continuously and my Weapon power bar barely dips at all from the top of the scale.
I have 7 in flow capacitor in each and my BoP mounts a a Flow Sci console, although I wonder sometimes if I even need it.
And I flew both of them today in STFs, I noticed no difference in the power drain from the before the update.

Ah, so it's only boosting your weapon power? Before, it was boosting stats across the board.

bah, what else matters...lol...
To be honest, they way I have those two ships spec'd and geared, I never have power problems, period.
Both of them had issues under rapid fire before, I relied on EPW and bartteries before I got the leech console, since then, I always seems to have amazing amounts of power all the time. I use the bar graph pwr display (option 3) and I always seem to have way more than the base setting. My wpn pwr runs 101/70 and shields run 72/50 as an example, and that's before I start firing and sucking power from whatever I'm shooting.
I'll start watching closer when I can, but I usually have so much other stuff to pay attention too in combat as it is...
And where the heck do you see what percentage of power drain you're getting?
After you posted that I went back and looked and couldn't find some kind of percentage displayed anywhere...

Yep...I am fairly certain it is broken.

I maxxed out my Flow Capacitors...and have six levels in the skill that facilitates energy transfer from one system to another...I don't have any flow consoles equipped.

Still...prior to the patch, Plasmonic Leech provided me with a small to moderate boost in all of my power systems...now, it either is giving just one or two points, or not working at all as far as I can tell.

I just did a test in T'Kanis -- took out all six borg squadrons...my shield power did not boost a single time in all six encounters with Plasmonic Leech equipped. I was in a Garumba, all cannons/turrets with one quant launcher, rapid fire.

Weapons power fluctuates so fast that it is hard to say if I am getting a boost there...

I agree, it quite simply does not function at this time.

wELL, AT LEAST THE FEDS WILL BE HAPPY AND THAT'S WHAT'S IMPORTANT:p

Though the ineffective output of the PLC is exactly what I noticed on tribble when I tested it upon first release, which led to my initial call of "its useless".

Silly man... didn't you know that, if it benefits the KDF, it's doomed to be nerfed/cried about/nitpicked to death? :p
