# 1 Romulan episodes
03-24-2012, 06:57 AM
So, i've played this game for a little while now, and i've come to the romulan chapters. What boogles me though, is how impossible certain enemies are. The leuitenant escort ship i had was annihilated by the defender type of ships (larger than the others). I got them to around 50% and my hull sank pretty quickly. Same now for my captain cruiser. I can withstand more damage, but those plasma torpedoes they keep nuking me with makes it impossible and i keep dying. I try to shoot them, but i almost only miss so they end up reaching me. If i go defensive i guess you know as well as i that i won't have enough dps to keep his shield down to do any damage.

Any input would be appreciated.

You playing on normal difficulty? Try maxing shield power...you may also need some hull heal ability.
No surprise you are squishy.
If all else fails, call for someone to help you in sector space.

FAW, TS, HE.

Fire at will and torpedo spread are good for popping the big torpedoes, hazard emitters put out the fire.

It seems that there is more to this new issue than just player setup. Ive read various reports of changes that make some ships a little OP.

I have been ripping through the game up until this point. These ships. I do have 2 hull repair abilities, and 2 shield regeneartion abilities. Science team and engineering team. I focus my shield where i take damage, but you know, when your shield goes away after a hit or 2 it's rather pointless. I pop all my nuking abilities in the start and get his shield down pretty quickly and get some hits on him, but then comes the good 4 torpedoes. 1 high yield and 3 normal. They rip me apart in addition to his constant nuking.

Warbirds just tractor beam and then fire at point blank 3 heavy plasma torpedoes.

So this is indeed a issue? if so, it's a pretty big one as i just can't defeat it.

And do they normally tend to heal themselves to maximum hull strength in 5 seconds ?

Most people get through them. Try different things, use different boff setups vs Romulans. What they do is known, so are the ways to counter it. Tractors? jamming/scrambling/ polarize hull. Heavy Torps? keep your distance to give time to shoot them FAW / CSV/ TS/ mines all stop torpedoes.

There are many options, you just need to find what works for you. But just doing it the same way over and over may not be the best choice. Good luck
