Haven磘 played for a few months...

Played a few rounds this afternoon and found it much more difficult to get through shields. Seems like the Fedballs are getting better with healing eachother, and the shields themselves appear to be much stronger than when I last played.

Still managed a few kills, but I had to be a lot more selective and precise than I usually am. Pain in the ***. Something has changed, and that makes me a sad klingon.

For STFs, I've been having a lot of fun with...
Commander: Polarize Hull, TBR1, GW1, Photonic Shockwave 3
Lt Commander: TT1, Torpedo Spread 2, Torpedo Spread 3
Lieutenant: Torp HY 1, Torp HY 2
Lieutenant: Engineering Team 1, Aux to SIF 2

Yes, I get blown up on occasion, but meh. I could swap my Engineering boff for a Sci Lieutenant for a Haz Emitters, but meh.

I wish I had more slots for Torpedoes... I currently run:

Fore: Hargh'peng, Plasma, Photon, Quantum
Aft: Tricobalt, Photon

Out of curiousity since you're using Photonic Shockwave 3. I have PSW1 and notice no noticeable effects in PVP. For skills, I have Graviton Gen and Particle Gen at 9 levels, and Starship Subspace Decompiler at 6 levels. I also have Graviton and Particle Generators (1 a piece) for Science Console slots. I also have a Graviton Deflector Array that provides +18 Starship Graviton Gen and Subspace Decompiler, as well as 8.8 Particle Gen. I fly with Aux throttled up to max and sometimes use Aux Battery, and use PSW1 within 3km of the target. And still I notice no delaying or stunning effects on the target. What am I doing wrong?

I haven't done PvP with that, so take it with a grain of salt.

I run psw3 because gw3 would be superfluous. the cool down makes 2 grav well slots kind of worthless.

usually, it's tbr or psw3 followed by an immediate gw. the psw doesn't have any shared cool down, so I bump and snare. or, it is kinetic dps, although I really need a parser. grav well, torpedo spread, psw3 up close, polarize/evasive out.

now I could swap commander sci and Lt commander tactical for the inverse with commander tactical and Lt commander sci to pick up apo3, but I am sci and my goal is not to steal agro (though I do on occasion).

I'd probably run gw1 on sci, and apo3 on a tac for PvP.

Just posting to update my kill-list, and let folks know the PVP retrofit is still alive.

Ran some STF and Borg Invasions just now, and it bears mentioning: The B磖el torpedo boat absolutely lays waste to the Vessels (number) of (number), and totally crushes Tac Cubes.

No. Switched back to using Viral Matrix instead of scramble sensors. But that's all. I would like to add that Rule 62 console, but I sure as **** won't been paying to open any lockboxes, so oh well.

edit: Just jumped in and snagged a few new escort carriers for my killboard.

Fresh meat, huh?

Oh, I had to check and make sure none of the ships from my poor Fed alt were on the kill list.

I just added a section on the B'rel Retrofit page at the STO Wiki dedicated to the torpedo boat B'rel.

I've never done a wiki entry before, so please head on over and edit it mercilessly, please.

Question for Redstar_swe: Does Grav Well damage your targetable torpedos when it is in effect? How effective has Grav Well been at immobilizing targets for you (Mainly keeping the same shield facing your direction)?

Also, have you had any luck using Tachyon Beam to weaken the shields a little? If so, how did it work?

I am considering moving my Science officer into the Commander slot, but want to get the facts before I go getting rid of APO3.

I use high yield plasma and tricobalt on nanite clumps that I have grav welled. there is no interference.

the issue usually is a trade off between dealing damage (fire at closer range) and escaping damage from the splash and the ball of enemies.
