this is the one consoles that MUST NOT be released in lock boxes. well, this and AMS. dont even think about it.

and please have a look at power insulators resist to the leach, its one thing if my opponent has extra energy, but for me to lose so much for as long as im being shot at is extreamly op, especially when you compare it to other draining powers.

power siphon only lasts a mater of seconds, has not that great of up time, and takes a valuable station slots. leach just sits in a consoles slot and gives you the energy of everyone you shoot at forever. seems to me that it exists outside of the parameters for such a skill

Thats how I see it; it's running 100% of the time, (at least when I've used it on me klink) it buffs the user and debuffs opponents. There's no downside, no cooldown or anything if this became another cross faction console I'd snap it up straight away.

The drain abilities I know of have at least downsides; the boff one has a big cd/the space set (breen) is the same, polarons are a small chance of a debuff and the drones you can (try) shoot down.

And power insulaters seems to make no discernable difference when I spec into it :[

For me it could do with a redesign, but eh, thats just my opinion.

I would prefer they make the Leech and AMS consoles completely non-buffable via skills or consoles and just leave them at thier designed effects but allow them to be countered by SKilling in Power Insulators and Sensors as normal.

I certainly do not think they should ever be in lockboxes, ever.

On an individual basis, the power should not change - the benefit a single player receives from it should remain unaffected. We are only planning to address the multi-player stacking concerns.
Way to go Cryptic, it's broken now. Since todays patch Plasmonic Leech only procs once, which means it gives the owner a marginal +1 (+2 with full flow capacitor skill) to all subsystems. Now it's entirely worthless.

The release notes seem to state that they can no longer be stacked.

But I have no doubt they totally screwed it up so now it doesnt even work properly on a single target hahahahahhaha

Fixed? Even those common power generators are better now, because they give basically the same benefits 24/7 and not only when you shoot someone.
