So you guys are asking for a nerf of my main because the devs were lazy when they create STFs bosses and just add "lololol moar dps lololol moar HP"? If only the boss had a non-fragile stun/hold ability, solo-ing it would be impossible.

BTW I'm sure you won't be happy if my sci isn't here to hold the aggro of heavies and elites during any stf when I pug with it (it's rare but it does happen). I saved many STFs just by holding the aggro with a nice threat control ability and healing myself while the rest of the team was just trying to do some dps, slowly... I can also save your asses on Nukara or any other hot places as it is. Not sure I could do that if my heals are nerfed. I could barely support myself with let's say -20% in heals efficiency.

So are you really ready to ask a nerf of your teammates just because :
- you suck at it
- the devs were lazy when they created the bosses?

Seriously?

If my medic kit is nerfed then I just won't pug anymore because I won't be able to make the balance in poor groups. Not that I care much about helping bad pugs to get some good gear but it's nice to see some new faces.

Oh and BTW I can solo the boss in IGE with my eng (and my sci too if I ust a small glitch), so please nerf engs. Just remove their cover shield, it's cheated.

Yea, nerf healing and you pretty much condemn science to be totally useless. If we nerf healing, then we should definately lessen the damage that tacs do. It's way too much, the number of times I've seen tacs solo the queen on elite infected... Oh wait... you're just good...? No... I think we need to nerf the one volley kills in space for tacs too..

Seems like people don't know what a science officer is.

IIf I could get this much attention on my Typhoon-class thread, the devs might look at it. Perhaps I should have worded my suggestion differently, but it was still amusing to see some of you respond in the manners you did.

I would like to know how many STF you already ran? 1? maybe 2? I already ran more than 500 STF. I'm sci. 50% of cge I die. 50% I kill Armek alone. So, it's usual tac kill Armek alone. We are all died and he kills Armek. It happens many time. I've a friend, he's eng and many time he killed Armek alone. What does this mean. I know elite player? No I don't so. I know good player. And you, you're not! Assume your incompetence and don't grief a poor sci who was able to fight alone against Armek. You can do it but it seems you don't want. I's easier to say sci blabla than to improve and increase skills and ability.

So a sci saved a game ( a task which takes time and encouraging people not to rage quit if you are in a pug) while you were dead. Shame on you for not being helpful but competent (or incompetent) enough to come in this forum and ask for the nerf.


and no, I am not a sci.

Just stop. The OP has pretty much admitted he's trolling, no need to feed his super-sized ego any further.

After all, it's not really his fault he can't handle any STFs. It's just the fault of everybody else.

You confuse 'science kit' with the combined effect of science kit and certain armor sets.


Federation science players get an insane tanking ability when they combine 2-piece maco and 2-piece omega set with the healing power of the science kit.

2 piece maco = insane shield regeneration
2 piece omega= insane energy resists (to armor not shield)
healing kit = insane resists and self heals.

... plus the consumable hyposprays and the individual armor piece bonuses.

Omega shield = 25% dodge bonus.
Maco armor = higher kinetic and energy resists

And you get someone that can literally tank all freaking day.


Armek also has two 'flaws' that enable people, even non-science, to defeat him via glitching his AI. Sometimes this is the only way to beat him since the AI also glitches in favor of Armek.

Overall the elite stf boss fights were very poorly designed. They should provide a challenge for a team working together not be an exercise in online masochism. The devs should take a good look at the final fantasy 11 boss fights to learn how to do it. That game really,really has intense and rewarding boss battles.

The amusing replies keep coming in.

I have a Fed Tac, full Mk12 MACO Ground, all optionals.

Fed Engi that I just recently started working ground on, Mk10 Omega Ground, all Space optionals.

Klink Tac, full Mk12 KHG Ground, all optionals.

All of them also have the set pieces of MACO and KHG Space I wanted, in Mk12.

Full Mk12 weapons.

Hundreds of STF Elites finished, Space and Ground.

Simply because my post count is low and I was asking for a nerf, you all assumed that I was some sort of noob, that is genuinely amusing.

I never admitted to trolling, I said perhaps I should have worded my post differently. In no way did I come out and go "TROLOLOLOL" or anything of the sort.

Here's what happened...I was in a CGE, I suggested the usual Pulsewave Hug on Armek. When it failed once because the Sci Player decided to back away from Armek and got 1 shotted by his uber-death-arm cannon.

We did it again, this time with the Sci rushing in ahead of everyone else and attempted to solo him. He died the first time. He was successful the second.

Now, you can continue to say whatever you will. The fact is, the Sci Officer figuratively told us. "I got this, noobs".

I still don't believe any boss should be solo-able by any class, but I see it happening most with Sci Class.

I would personally like to thank Skyfaller for being neutral and informative, rather then attacking me.

Also, if any of you have doubts, come find me in game. My account name is @baelogventure. Go ahead, send me a PM.

ok, firstly a small lesson I learned years ago, "if yo can't beat them, join them" I play a science (along with a tac and an engi) my sci had a rare Mk X sniper rifle until recently and no STF set.

I've been doing fairly well in elite STFs regardless. We got to the last room of IGE and the team got trapped outside/killed by drones leaving me under-equipped using a xenobiologist kit at the time to solo Rebbeca, which I did and again science saved the game I also got a well earned ptoto tech and salvage along with a congrats and a thanks from the team for doing so.

these things happen, live with it, don't take away the last thing science has standing in it's favour, engineers are next (in fact with the latest kit 'fix' it's already begun)

Having played my tactical as a main I can say we realistically only have one good kit, one ok kit, and one kit we keep just for the cloak. The rest are garbage. Tactical is ridiculously fragile on the ground, no heals for health or shields and consumables share recycles too long to be able to use both. The endless stream of buffs makes it very hard to keep DPS up, there are times you aren't done buffing and the group is 3/4 dead even on elite. Other than the grenade we have no direct damaging abilities, no utility, nothing, it makes us very limited and vulnerable.

My alt is a level 50 science, the difference here isn't the power of their kits, but the average quality. Science have 4 good kits and the rest are useful. Physicist is aoe crazy fun, medic is everything tac can't be, and tachyon harmonic can put out more damage in elite stfs to shields than any tac can ever hope. Is it over powered? Not really, science has highs and lows, when their abilities run out they are pretty ineffective, but when they are up its impressive. They are far more survivable in any kit, which is what gives them that over powered feeling.

Engineer I haven't played, but the enemy neutralization kit makes me jealous, their explosives do so much more than a tac grenade it is unfair. Their bunker kits have some good things in them but it is rare to be used properly. They have almost as many garbage kits as tactical but quite a few good utility kits.

My opinion, science doesn't need any improvement, engineers have some awesome abilities packaged with a bunch of garbage and it needs major adjustment so those abilities can make them what they should be. Tactical needs some help, they get one big hit and not much else after that, enough to piss everything off so it kills them. Their grenade targeting is hopeless for less damage than a single shot. They have no durability and no utility, it doesn't add up.
