Oh well so now phasers should be useless while others weapons will be THE new weapon type to have. It's just a matter of time before we find the new ultimate proc. Why do you bother changing those since it will never be balanced and since everyone can get any weapon type, anyway?
Useless? They're still the best weapon type in the game. Disabling a subsystem for 5 seconds for free isn't enough? I guess you need to stack multiple procs to get through the really "super-hard" PvE content?

Right because your right to use annoying stuff that ruins PvP balance is far more greater than keeping fun in PvP.
I own the Atrox as well and I am glad that they made these changes. Getting chain-subsystem disabled is not fun. But then again I don't do PvE (except when leveling or getting STF gear), I do PvP.

Baseline from the test server, Tetryon weapon procs now do 323 shield damage, instead of 174 or whatever it was. Poloran weapons are -25 to all power levels for 5 seconds, Plasma is 24.3 dmg/s for 15s. This does not include any bonuses, just what's showing in the shops.

is that you can't properly teabag your defeated opponent

Tholian Lobi Crystal Store is on Tribble, as are the Lock Boxes in the DS9 Store.
To try out the new Lock Boxes, just transfer a character to tribble with 1 Key and buy a lock Box with that Character and place it into your account Bank. Delete the character, Transfer him again, and do it again till you have enough keys to be satasified and enough lockboxes. Then Pretend it's Christmas!
You think that your beta test was bad?
Think about this: American Football has been in open beta for 144 years. ~Kotaku
The new weapon procs......well I think it might be too much.
The new Lobi Store, be nice if the physical location was brought back and give people a reason to go to Drozana. Perhaps making it a bit cheaper as further incentive to avoid those "delivery costs".
The new ships, well the Tholian is nice, but the Mirror ones, well they are nice for people who wanted those configurations. Wish they were available years ago, because the Ensign Sci was more favored for PvP.
NO to ARC!
Season 9.5 = STO's NGE is Here! Welcome to the Grind!
Expansion 2 - Delta Rising: Welcome to Tier 6, where everything is now obsolete. Have fun with the new Crafting!
Well Phasers were the best energy weapon for no win scenario, because of the stacking proc. But taking that into account I guess phased tetryon weapons would be best with subsystem and shield procs. I don't think I have enough ec yet to switch my fleet escort to it.
You guys are aware that ultra-violet is an actual frequency range but not visible to humans? What's next, infrared rarity? I know it's nitpicky but pick up a dictionary once in a while please. While you're at it look up visible spectrum. Or hell, use Wikipedia.
It would've made far more sense to just change the phaser proc than to massively buff every single other weapon type (-25 on polarons just for bothering to autofire? Jesus)
EDIT: I'd really, really love to see the 20% plasma resist just flat-out removed from set shields. It's really not even necessary for PvE, honestly. It does nothing other than to gimp an energy type completely.
