This needs a fix, sooner rather than later.

It's kind of funny - because I've talked about using TBR to push a target away from a healer or push the healer away from the group. I would 3 or rarely 6 it, never run Part consoles, and it worked pretty well in that regard - subnuking the PH/APO, etc, etc. TBR+EM+Eng Battery - and you could drive a person away from their support pretty well.

Well, 9 it - add the Part consoles - then do the TBR+EM+Eng Battery... and well, you just kill them... meh.

I hope that when they address this - they address it from the latter and not the former (so it's not a case that you need to 9 it and run the consoles just to get what was at the 3-6) - the 99+ is where it's broken.

I would give it the same treatment as phaser point console. I would bring the dmg back to the original values (fix the particle scaling) but improve the dmg against small targets x10 and frigates x3. Thus It can be used as counter to danoobes and such except for it usual control role.

It should not be possible to destroy a ship using armor consoles and brace for impact through shields in a single salvo.

Do not seek logic in STO, you will fail. By same logic it should not be possible by small dunooobe shuttle to tractor a cruiser of such mass like Galaxy.

I'm looking at this from the perspective of a player in an online game. From that perspective, this "bug" or "glitch" or "exploit" has ruined PvP balance. Arenas are full of teams running tractor beam repulsors as their main source of damage. Shields are useless. Even with polarize hull and brace for impact, there's not much chance of surviving more than one person using this ability at once.

Meh, so much for my TBR build. If people are cheesing it that badly, then I guess I'll hold onto it until they fix the scaling.

I'd me quite happy to see the damage component tottally removed, would stop PVE idiot's using it as cruise control for cool on non-science.

TBR? So many who have them. So few who know WHEN and WHERE to use them. Most certainly not to push the Negvars towards the Kang in Cure space elite!

lol TBR+ no win = got to wave 9 first try with orions in a couple of temporal ships and MVAMs.


with the right ships we could have TBR'ed even harder and no doubt won the thing.
