I have seen higher but most of the damages are in that range.

Can this thread please just go somewhere and die?

The Borg are fine as is. And just so you guys know, Cryptic plans on nerfing them over the next few patches, so congrats, all your whining has paid off.

So all you wimps who are complaining about the Borg doing too much damage with their torps, I have 5 words for you. Electroceramic Hull Plating, Monotanium Alloy. You can get both mk XII purples for stupidly cheap on the exchange (I mean less than 3 mil each). And if you equip those, all of a sudden THE BORG DON'T HURT SO MUCH. I hate to say it, but L2P, figure out what skills do and don't work (Hint: RSP and Aux2SIF3 are your friends, as are HE and BFI), and for the love of all things tribble, ADJUST YOUR DAMN BUILDS instead of complaining.
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.

Of course if you run into the instance without a couple of high level EPTS and TSS with a reman or aegis shield you'll get insane and well-deserved damage values. And heck, I also get badly shot, from time to time, but it's an exception as i'm using abilities increasing my resistance. There's an ability many of you don't click, it's called brace for impact. You should check it!

There are also easy ways not to get shot by torps spreads. One of them is having a carrier in your team, the other one is using blind spots. The borg is a very scripted enemy, once you figure it the difficulty level drops to zero, especially since they've been nerfed so many times...

Borg damage is grotesque.
The only players who beg for this have some type of fetish

BOTTOM LINE:
Elite STF was fun...before the Season 7 changes.
PWE, bring the fun back into STF.
NO to ARC...Keep it in Beta

I really do not mind the borg having a high defense there suppose too.

But there attack powers are completely outrages.Be cause alot of times there shots can destroy a ship in one shot when there not suppose too.

If a ship has a hull defense of 42,000 that ship should be able to with stand a lot of beatings.

But it is point less because the borg are ignoring the shields witch is total BS.A lot of things should not even penetrate the hull unless the shields are down.

Even stuff like the Boarding party's should not be able to board the players ship if the shields are on.

You mean you enjoyed facerolling the Borg?

Yeah players like you make no sense to me. I enjoy fighting the Borg, not just running them over or scraping them off the bottom of my boot. I enjoy an even, well rounded fight. And yes, a Tactical Cube being able to smash 5 players with minimal effort is even and well rounded, since if I remember correctly, a single Borg Cube was able to destroy 39 ships with minimal damage taken in return, and another cube was also able to almost destroy and entire fleet by itself (First Contact).

So you'll forgive me if I don't join the masses screaming and whining for the Borg to be derped into a joke again.

I have played too many games in which npcs and computer players are a joke. This game was similar, even though ESTFs were a little less so, but I still really liked what they did to the NPCs for season 7, especially the borg. It forced us to adapt to the new strengths, and exploit the new weaknesses (still looking for them). And as such, I finally found it challenging, enjoyably so.

Well if they nerf the estf Borg back down
To season 6 level it will double my dilithium
Income.
Hear that Daniel ! Double dilithium !

The Borg are still weak as they are
7
It was pathethic I'n season 6 to watch escorts

Just move up and sit at range 1 blasting away at
The Tac cube at ISE then talking about how great
There build was ,

These are probably the same guys who will begin
Crying about there elite armor Looks plain that they
Get from the tier store then realize they don't have
The accolades to get the really good looking armor.

Can't get the opps because they never developed
Any ground fighting skill nor any teamwork. I'm saving up
Cases of tissues for that wine fest that's comming I'n a month
Or so when begin hitting tier 5
Jellico....Engineer.....Stargazer KDF Tac
Saphire.. Science.....Ko'el Rom Kdf Tac
Leva........Tactical.....Mailu KDF Sci

JJ-Verse will never be Canon or considered Lore...It will always be JJ-Verse
