Hello Borticus, a month has passed since the PSW3 nerf, when we all agreed that science offensive abilities needed a balance pass.
Any ETA or progress that you can share with us?

Thanks

I believe it's "whenever they get the time and resources", aka, don't get your hopes up any time soon.

a starting point for base line resist of 0 skill points like we have now should be 50 skill points. then add a sloping effectiveness curve for the less resist you have, and same for the more resist you have. with 99 resist and 4 resist consoles, the effect should only be about 25%. 0 skill points and 0 consoles should make a skill 175% effective against you, something like that

Tbh I don't necessarily want to hear what their plans are. Firm plans are something that have to go up the chain of command, try to get put in the schedule, pushed back down to get time in the cycle, yadda yadda.

I'm more interested in what they are talking about. What ideas are you bouncing around in team sessions. What do you guys see as real problems, where are you thinking that you want to go with the changes. We know you can't give dates and crap because it's not necessarily in your control, and people cry when dates change by like 20 minutes.

Things like "these are the specific things we are thinking about" is stuff that the forums love to hear because it gives US a chance to hash it out on the forums and generates interest and excitement (or fear lol) among the playerbase. Give us a bone to chew on and generally we are happy. It tells us that you are concerned with our issues and let's us know where you want to go and why. Tell us conversations you had at Pax, in Las Vegas, whatever, it gives us fodder to mull over while you guys do the gruntwork.

When you don't say anything the playerbase generally feels ignored and has a tendency to whine and snipe which makes Branflakes already thankless job worse. DO IT FOR BRANFLAKES SANITY! Honestly I wouldn't doubt Bran has a bottle of Jack in his desk drawer just to get through the day. His liver can't take much more of this captain!

I was sitting here last night thinking that it had been a while since we've seen a thread on this subject.

Too long.

Thanks for bringing it back up

Oh, I know, they are all busy with game-breaking issues like this:

"Repositioned the Enterprise Panels unlocked on Fleet Starbases as part of the 5th special project so they no longer clip into the wall"
and
"The fix to the Enterprise panels also includes moving the potted plant so that it does not block the Ent-F"
(from today tribble release notes)

They are obviously quite busy, as one can conclude from the very short patch notes for the latest Tribble Patch. They are working on some big stuff, I would guess.

This makes sense, actually. They've stated that they're not allowed to talk about the big stuff that's upcoming. So, if there's a lot of silence on their end, it could mean they're working on something. . .hopefully something we'll like.
