I tested em on tribble , and i think all the whining that is going on is for nothing . You will be pleasantly surprised on how much it is improved
Have u guys even tested that set after the changes? Its now in one league with the two other sets and they are useless from my point of view. I even think i know where this is going. They are probably going to put actually useful sets onto the c-store sometime soon. He who tells me the maco or omega set can compete with the Borg set (the way its on holo right now) should actually look at those sets fore some time fly around with them and get in some decent fights (elite STFs/PVP). You will notice soon that they take something away from us. It's like not having set bonuses at all. And losing the Borg set is nothing you could possibly want.
If you cryptic guys are ever going to listen to us now would be a good time to start. Because you are going down a path where many of us might just decide to not follow you any more. I doubt you guys want that.
Endgame equip and especially endgame sets and the likes should be way above the ordinary equipment you can loot, craft or obtain through other actions. If you take that out of the game at a point where you are basically unable to present us new content in the form of new STFs new missions and a full Klingon storyline that can be compared to the federation storyline you are doing something really wrong. Every big MMORPG has endgame Equipment in one way or another. Equipment that is above the ordinary and even if it does take time to obtain it is not a mind numbing marathon of grinding six missions that have been played for to many times already by the vast majority of players. Don't act like the STFs are different because they got a minor redo. On the ground it's still the same and in space it's nothing you guys should be too proud of (don't want to disrespect the work being put in the redo but you should probably just have left them the way they were and add something new instead).
It appears the design is to NERF healing (already been done with both skill box re-vamps and console NERFS) and now the last thing on the list is to NERF the borg set.
It's all about DPS now in PVP. The more DPS for the fast kill, including the P2W consoles, the more you win. I used to be able to "tank" 3 players on my excel, now, I can't tank 1 really good escort. Hense, I don't PVP anylonger. I just about refuse to fly an escort and be like every1 else. (escorts online now) If I wanted that I would of stayed in SWG where space gameplay was a true fast action simulator and not this half baked model.
This is no longer "our game". It is a design for another playerbase and in the fashion of a true "NGE", the developers couldn't care less about the existing playerbase they have/had.

If this is what is going to happen then I can tell right now u it's sad that they have let it come to this. This game had and still has potential. If they really want to go from a dedicated player base to a bunch of non paying hop on hop of players well I guess thats their decision to make.
Still, the amount of players (paying ones!) i have heard saying they will stick with Star Trek because it's Trek and it's amazing and the fact that we are still with them should tell Cryptic that they got a golden ticket right here. I personally can't understand why they feel the need to drive those players away. Even if many of us take a lot of the stuff cryptic gives us and swallow it there is a point where we are just not going to take it any more.
One last thing: keep the graphics like they are, would you cryptic?. Changing them to eastern style would be a bit to obvious i'd say.
(Frankly, I see it coming.)
if u cant tank an escort now in a cruiser, something is wrong with you. and tanking three escorts in a crusier? they were either badly specced or cryptic was right to nerf ur stuff, cause thats over powered.
