Not quite what I mean, I know every fed sci NPC uses it. I meant why isn't it more widely used among players? It seems like it's pretty good, you get the photonic shockwave stun in torpedo form, and that torp is actually pretty quick too.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.

I don't know. Maybe people are just unwilling to spend that much Zen on a ship they can't really use at endgame. They save their money for the T5 ships.

I didn't swear. That wasn't censored. I actually typed four asterisks there. Not that it isn't enough to get a warning in this playpen .


And there is no excuse for the repulsor beam stupidity. STFs are not "solo" missions.

So tell me where there is a ROMULAN vessel in a STF we are discussing Romulans with tractor mines and tractor beams
not the naff borg in the naff stfs

And STF's SHOULD be Solo missions because theres always some idiot AFKing in an escort these days

and you did swear even if only in your head

Hm... true... but imagine a tier 5 ship with that console on it. That's a ship that could possibly MAJORLY fk up someone.

yes i know they can be pretty annoying, but to be honest they are also too good to not use in any stf. the stationary targets (cubes, transformers, generators, gates) are not effected, but take massive dmg by it. I think it is, as you said, the people who use it in the wrong situations.
all boss ships (not just some) in grp content should be immun to the push effect, imo

Works fine against Borg for me.

I have no problem with defeating the vast majority of tractor beam hold with Polarize Hull I, even on my Excelsior. Worst case hit Evasive and Brace for Impact, it seems to help jiggle the ship free as well.
