Thank You I will keep an eye out for your next post
I'm sorry, but the middle section of your name gets censored in quotes and it's so amusing I had to make this post.

Iíve been running the 3 piece Borg set on my Gal X and when the procs go off their great but with all the adjustments that Cryptic made to the set the procs go off with far less frequency now and sometimes not at all.

Thats not an easy one to answer.

Either 2/2 or 1/3 (MACO/Borg).

Thing is the MACO deflector is MUCH better than the Borg deflector (generally, unless you are after the specific stats of the Borg).

Yes the 3pc Borg > 2pc MACO, when it procs, but it has to proc to be of any use at all.

Play both, see which you like. If using a Cruiser then the 8.1 to EPS (or effectively +1 power) is really good.

I've only tonight realised that my Intrepid had my MX XI gear on it, I was running 1/3. Just grabbed my MK XII from my Nebula and now running 2/2 and it feels MUCH tankier, I will have to keep an eye on it and see what i come up with .

A Few figues, I will update this post as I get more,

2 Photon Launchers - 1 Blue, 1 Purple Doff - 111 Torpedos in 300 seconds ***111 / 300***
3 Photon Launchers - 1 Blue, 1 Purple Doff - 147 Torpedos in 300 seconds ***147 / 300***
2 Photon Launchers - 2 Blue, 1 Purple Doff - 126 Torpedos in 300 seconds ***126 / 300***
3 Photon Launchers - 2 Blue, 1 Purple Doff - 148 Torpedos in 300 seconds ***148 / 300***

2 Quantum Launchers - 1 Blue, 1 Purple Doff - 104 Torpedos in 300 seconds ***104 / 300***
3 Qunatum Launchers - 1 Blue, 1 Purple Doff - 131 Torpedos in 300 seconds ***131 / 300***
2 Quantum Launchers - 2 Blue, 1 Purple Doff - 111 Torpedos in 300 seconds ***111 / 300***
3 Quantum Launchers - 2 Blue, 1 Purple Doff - 137 Torpedos in 300 seconds ***137 / 300***

3 Rapid Reload Transphasic Torpedos - 1 Blue, 1 Purple Doff - 140 Torpedos in 300 Seconds ***140/300***
3 Rapid Reload Transphasic Torpedos - 2 Blue, 1 Purple Doff - 147 Torpedos in 300 Seconds ***147/300***

I can't use 3 Doffs, because I am using 2xDevelopment Lab Scientists and 1xTractor Specialist, this means I can only use 2 Projectile Weapon Doffs, so Photons are the better options for DPS. Frankly, I dont think I would want to use another Doff slot just to ekk out that smidgen of DPS from 3Q/3D

Tests were done in a 1v1 PvP situation, torps were set to autofire, no THY or TS used, parser counted the shots and the time elapsed.
I wonder if with 2 Purple Doffs how it would change. Either way thx for laying it out like that easy to read.

It basically wont, the max is 150/300, so 147 is not to sniff atm, I will redo the test with 2 purple if you would like me to, but i have to replace one of them as I had 2 Purple PWD killed last week

Out of curiosity, have you considered using gravity well instead of tractors? I recently acquired my interpid retrofit for my Sci officer and was looking for builds and found your thread.
