# 1 Going Full ******.
06-03-2013, 11:10 AM
Okay, so since Cryptic's decided to make the BoP a suicide sled with their 'update' to Aux power, and since waiting until next decade to play again probably won't work (never has for anyone else, I don't see this changing).

Time to go full ******. That is, forgetting what a PITA drain builds with aceton are, forgetting ideas of playing a clean game and just abusing the **** out of the gear available to make a ship that makes people throw things at their screen.

so I need suggestions. What should I use to go full ******? (aceton is an obvious start, need more bad ideas!)

Stop trolling.

The problem is that AUX is giving too much stealthsight, so everyone is exploiting the bug to have 30KM stealthsight. It will be fixed eventually.

Not AUX per se, only the specific Boff ability Emergency Power to Aux.

It's a bug that was known on Tribble.

on-topic, the automatic placate rep and gear is pretty annoying

I am in the same situation I usually am in a BOP, or battlecruiser, but since EPTA bug my Tac is back in my JHAS I am bored of using already, and my eng is in a Fleet Voquv drain cheese build. I can share the drain build here, can be used on regular voquv, or adapted to Karfi. Eng or sci works best but tac could be used to finish drained targets faster maybe.
my eng is nearly unkillable in this unless subnucced and focused on, even then sometimes its not enough. It also can do some shield stripping which is a little easier on targets that are drained.

Spec should be like a regular tank main thing is max flow capacitors.

Lt Cmdr Tac- TT1, TT2, TSSS3

Lt Cmdr Eng- EPTA1, Aux2SIF1, EPTS3

Cmdr Sci- Tractor1, HE2, TSS3, ES3

Lt Sci- Tractor1, Tykens 1 (or bump the tykens1 up to 2 and tss3 down to 2 if you want more drain or cant get tss3)

Fore- 2 polaron turrets or single cannons 1 beam array
aft- 3 polaron turrets

Omega deflector
omega engine
Elite or honor guard shields

eng consoles- leech, AA, 2 armor consoles or RCS or whatever

Sci consoles - all flow caps

tac consoles- 2 polaron

hangars- siphons

doffs- tractor beam doff, any tykens or energy siphon doffs if you can find them, and flight deck recharge speed doffs.

Fleet Norgh for hit n stay

TT, APD, CRF, APO
EPTE, A2B, RSP
EPTS, A2B, EWP

HE, SS

3x tech, Seggis (scramble doff), EWP doff

Neut, Leach, ISO
3x Embassy Prtg Hull heal
3x Weapon flavor

Fleet shields, whatever 2 piece floats your boat. KHG for maor aux, or Tet Glider, or... Aegis even?

Overcharged WC, probably E->A if you can, ECap or SCap

100/15/70/15 or 100/40/45/15

This will mimic a standard AP doff escort while starting with base 22 turn.

Instead of ISO there's the new shield drain console that I know nothing about. Could be good.

Wife is aggo'd have to stop typing but there's more to say here, mostly about rearranging the second LtC slot and whether to drop APD for more spike.

Ya, me too. They didn't need to execute the guy, just cut down his bloodwine supply.

I'm almost tempted to up the cheese, myself. . .I could put on a buffed PSW and time it with my decloak alphas and TB2 to make it a LOT harder to resist my attack. . .but then it gets boring.

Or I could try to obtain graviton pulse and cheese the Feddies with it. . .or do half a dozen other things to really up my 'pay to win' approach.

The problem is, I'd get bored. I like a bit of challenge, and I like facing the possibility of my attacks not hurting the enemy.

Yeah, right.

It benefits the Federation faction massively, as every gormless Federation Kirk can throw on EPtA1 and render cloaks useless.

Since it benefits primarily the Federation faction, it will take much longer to remove. Can't be upsetting them too much. . .
