# 1 Escorts Nerfed?
11-14-2012, 06:26 AM
I'm talking on Teamspeak last night with Fleet Members from around he world.
We all have different escorts, builds, and BOFF layouts .
Many of these players before season 7 were the STF Elites of the Elites.
Now they don't even want to do a STF and looking for the easy missions.
Why they just blow up over and over and complain that nothing's the same.

Myself I paid hard cash for Lobi so I could get a M?bius it was exciting and fun.
Now I feel like I got ripped off, I saw the release note and thought it was just the destroyers.

But talking to everyone we have concluded its all escorts, science abilities, and the Borg plasma is vicious now.


All of us paid money to get a escort so why even bother upgrading your ship if later its not what you paid for.

That's because borg plasma torps can be fired in any direction now. Deal with it like everyone has that decides to take them head on.

Also, Escorts != tanks, if they've finally gotten a tanking nerf, Thank God. It's been an extremely long time coming.

On the plus side, switch in scatter volley, torp spread and you'll be getting top spots in SB24, for dil and purples.

Sure, it's facerolling-easy, but escorts are sure to win number 1, considering the nature of the scoring mechanism.

You shouldn't have bothered, unfortunately.

Cryptic have taken a boardroom decision not to offer value for money (via longevity) on their products.

You must now spend and buy Zen for a different ship. Yes, it's extremely unethical, but that's just the way they've decided to remodel their business. It's technically not theft, just a minor infraction on your wallet. Get used to it, as they will now never stop.

Can I ask someone to quote the relevant part of the release notes, because I am not seeing it...

Was that decision is caused by the removal of Dilithium rewards?

Sure we played Elite STFs but with the changes to the STF store and the removal of Dilithium rewards its not surprising people will stop running STFs, at least after a while since even with the higher mark payoff we have no real reason to do it, the fact they throw a huge Dilithium tax on set gear means we cannot even use STFs to buy the gear, we better off playing on Defera that have no cooldown despite the lower mark rewards.

Also the ones that have a "leg up" on the system are the ones with sets, considering we have to wait until T5 for Mk XII store it means we can and likely will run 1-2 STFs per day for marks and switch to something else, then we complete the sets and ignore the STF store since its too expensive.

Updated Mobius and Krenn Weapon power and default Defense.
Both ships were getting double inherent defense bonus and an extra +15 weapon power. This is now corrected.
Its the 2nd item in the system changes

Probably referring to the following line in the latest release notes under Systems:

Updated Mobius and Krenn Weapon power and default Defense.
  • Both ships were getting double inherent defense bonus and an extra +15 weapon power. This is now corrected.

Escorts seeming weaker may not nessacarily be a nerf, but a result of some of the alterations to the gear...

And you know... Tribble has been with theese changes for a while... Been metioned several times as well... You guys could have pitched in.
