Ok, convinced me Now unfortunatly it's not a battlecloak so you'll probably cloak 2 or 3 times a STF.

Yeah sure, because sitting there cloaked instead of killing NPCs is such a wonderful thing and will spead up the grind eh I mean the completion of the mission.

You better start using your cloak in PvP to alpha strike people instead. After that it's quite pointless when you have to wait till the red alert wents of. I'm not saying it is useless there but just count the numbers how often you actually cloak with a defiant in PvP.

Well escorts may think they are god, but cruisers are 95% Kirks. So who's worse
And hypothetically spoken, people wouldn't call you a Troll for your hatred of escorts, just for your lack of knowledge of game mechanics and missleading statements.

A lack of understanding of game mechanics and combat tactics doesn't back up a valid opinion, just an opinion.

I have a SCI toon that I got to level 50 just doing DOFF missions so when I hit VA i still had the starter ship. I bought the Vesta Pack and never looked back. I was able to Blow through all the Story missions with no issues in the Vesta. Granted my other Toons are rich and I was able to equip it with high level gear and wep's. But the Vesta Bundle will give a SCI captian all you would ever need.

No, but I'm seriously starting to hope you are the only one who believes in the existence of such a silliness. Global cooldowns affected by where they are placed on BOFFs, that's just too funny.

Please go on and call me Janeway if you like Remember when I said I'm flying sci ships? I'm ok with being Janeway.

Oh edit before the night. I know this won't convince you in your little world, but for everyone else who is interested an excerpt from the patch notes that introduced shared and global cooldowns back with Season 1.2.

Quote:
Significant changes have been made to ability stacking and the recharge duration ratios of abilities. Abilities now have smaller system shared cooldowns (15 seconds for most) but a larger global ability cooldown that affects all versions of that ability across all officers (using Engineering Team I puts all Engineering Team abilities into a global ability cooldown). This global ability cooldown is 2:3 of the ability?s recharge time, which means that slotting two copies of the same ability is helpful in that it can be used more frequently, but the same ability will no longer be able to be stacked by a single player.

Ah I get it now

You thought I ment that you NEEDED two boffs
No Two is just more efficient allowing you to slot two versions of a useful power in an otherwise vacant slot (same as a spare tac team on escorts is more common than you might think)


oh and janeway was a rotten captain
she got half her crew killed and took a borg aboard
She pretty much ruled by fear and had the ethics of a cardassian

No way to twist this around. It is not what I thought, it is what you said...

Seriously, how does someone not know that the lower cooldown is a global cooldown.

It does not mater what Boff you put the two same powers on, the cooldowns will be the same regardless.

The only way you can affect the cooldowns is by either Doffs, Photonic Officer Boff power or the Tac Captain skill, Tactical Initiative.....

Yes and im Right

See you are bringing stuff from threads and using it to make a wrong point

All I said here was that escorts solo are not a good idea in the cardassian missions

which is accurate
