this just occured to me, but let me preface that i don't think the VM AoE is necessarily OP:

VM is clearedd by: ET, EPtXx4. Batteries, RMC (broken), Team Batteries, MW.

Why the hell do we need a better clearing of ET 1. The reason everybody with a sciLtCmd=< is using VM is because the other powers suck. Please don't nerf another high level sci power. There is no reason for this, unless HE,ET, APO become the ultimate every escort can be immune to all sci powers combo.
Sorry if sci pilots ruin your Kirking, this is a bad idea bort. How about nerfing CRF/CSV/APA/APO/APB/APD if we are just randomly throwing out nerfs, sci has had enough of those.

The sad part is I was talking about misinformation coming from the community.

Seriously, the time has come. Hire Hilbert.

As always Bort, I thank you for your presence here and your candor.

Where would you put them if you are using 2-3 Technicians for ATB?
Lose the BFI DOffs and place two of these EPTA DOffs in there place?
Would it be the equivalent of the same?

Tends to be that 2-3 Tech & 2-3 BFI. If you were sporting 2 Purp Tech & 2 Purp BFI... would the ability to run EPtA as often as you could justify the Purp Aux... I'm picturing dual AtB.

I'd be interested to see what DDIS thinks about this.

I had to walk away from AtB/EPtA cold. I couldn't play my other toons - it was killing me waiting on those CDs.

edit: Heck, maybe with the addition of defensive passives from the Rep systems?

I've long suspected that raising the number of active duty doffs would come as a Z-store purchase. Now I suspect it will be the Tier 5 K'zinti reputation unlock requiring millions of dil per character.

I already tested sub nuke doffs for you. You did nothing about it. 30 second immunity is not the solution to it. Which is why, the consumer (a lot of us) chose not to use it. You did not tune it or make it less over powered. It's ALL of us, against you, we ALL stated this fact to you.

It's time you guys give the customer what they want. We want balance. AND for you to listen to us.
dude can you please stfu? atleast the dev is talking. calling people names and not talking nicly will not get you anywhere. just be happy he actually came back to talk. now please be a bit more calm. the vm doff seems a bit op. but so did the first doff till you knew when to clear with et. and bort is correct, i dont want cookie cutter builds. the doffs are cool on a roster. and you cant say you dont use them.

and you can only post feed back on testing. dude go to sleep,take a break. as of right now he dont even need to respond. due to your actions you make everyone look bad.

I haven't tested it in the last weeks, but it used to be so that speccing Dampeners slightly reduced the -speed debuff of tractor beam. The problem is that it does nothing to reduce the -turn debuff.
