They seriously need to stop and think about what they are changing before they change it. There was absolutely no reason to nerf the FG console. It didn't need to be stackable it was fine just the way it was. There really wasn't an issue with power balance or anything so why bother changing it other than to very negatively effect the balance.
There are literally a 100 or more things that really do need to be fixed, corrected, added, removed and yet they seem to be working on ones that aren't part of that list. Gravity well got so castrated that now you use it and the enemy ship pretty much just laughs at you and now a huge hit to shields. Not all the ships have enough console slots to adapt to what they're changing and it seems the only reason why their changing it is because some ships simply have so many consoles slots that they can become overpowered. I can understand a balance issue like that but then when you do a global change like that the ships with very few or few console slot and lower base ratings get hit twice or three times as hard.
The Borg are meant as the ultimate evil that come in what they think is force, underestimate the power of survival and determination by the other species and then retreat to regroup when they get beat down. Instead the Borg have become the bully on the play ground that never gets in trouble for it.
i like how they made the borg 10% weaker damage and at the same time take that 10% and another 8% off are defences lol its like there is no one overlooking the changes that different departments are making
one step forward 2 steps back
oh and i just got crit buy a borg torpedo in the stf for 60k err but umm
"■These ships no longer have the ability to Critically Hit:"
Was that before we were expected to beat them several hundred times for a helmet?
You don't have to though do you. I think the Borg should be incredible tough to beat, it's the Borg! If people want the rewards, then work hard at it, it's a better feeling than just getting something thrown at you for little effort. Of course, this is a game, and should be fun. If it's not fun for you, don't do it.
