Hey, just give all the T4 passives to NPCs and listen to the whining in the PVE Forums...
BEST IDEA EVER! seriously, give the npc's even a fraciton of what they give us.
id love to see npc's with snb doffs, and with vm's all over the place with doffs, and grav pulses that go 30+seconds, and chaining shockwaves, and multiple tricobalts being deployed and the "time stop" stuff and and....
-drools- like i said... just a FRACTION of what we get is needed to be passed onto the npc's.

I can see why PvP is so broke in this game because of all the whining that goes on about "this and that" and whats "overpowered" and what's not.
It is coming, its only a matter of time. "History" proves that.
Last I checked, none of us in the PvP community have direct access to any part of the development of this game, so to say that we broke it with our "whining" is somewhat ignorant. Cryptic is the ones either breaking things or not doing the proper testing before releasing it onto holodeck.
Obviously it hasn't been enough. They still listen to the PvP community too much. I would rather see them not listen at all and just focus on bug reports, or things that are actually broken in this game that need attention. If this means the death or removal of PvP then so be it.
I used to be an avid PvP'r (not associated with the OPvP crowd). But when I see the attitude of some (not all but most) that use and abuse everything to their advantage to get a kill, and when that can't be accomplished anymore and refuse to adapt and change to the changing of an MMO is where I have a problem. It seems that everytime something good comes up, the majority of the PvP community whines about it because they can't get that "all important kill/win" easily anymore and actually have to "earn" their wins.
Get over it, get over the selfishness, and the desire to win every match you encounter and learn to change like the game changes, I think at that point you will be fine.
"They listen to the pvp community too much".....
Seriously?? *rolls eyes*
You want them to focus on bug reports? Well no kidding we would all like to have them focus on bug reports. It would be great if that system actually worked, and not just get generic responses back and then 6 months later we get a fix for it...
It is pretty clear that you don't PvP anymore, because I'm pretty sure that 99% of the active PvPe's will tell you that they are constantly having to adapt and change for PvP. And EVERYONE who PvP's EARN their wins, kinda the point of PvP to be honest.
lznfun is right..the pvp community are the ones who are whining babies..every time cryptic comes out with something..its the pvp community that whines..and what happens cryptic nerfs because quite frankly pvp community are the babies of the game..if you dont like something cryptic does then stop playing the game..end of story.bottom line..blznfun is not the baby..its the pvpers
First off let me say that while I admire that you are loyal to your Fleetmate, calling an entire community within this game "babies" because we want something fixed that is either broken or not tested enough before it was released to live, is very much ignorant. And thats ok because everyone is entiled to their own opinion and I as a member of the PvP community forgive you for this comment due based on that you made this comment is ignorance, and this is partially why:
Believe it or not it's not just the PvP community who does not like the way this T4 shield regen passive it working right now. I PvP yes, but am also a very active PvE player as well. I love doing my STF's and my Fleet actions on both ground and space.
And this T4 passive which I have earned on my main toon is ruining the fun of STF's and Fleet actions for me. I did a Hive Space Elite with my fleet yesterday and my shields never dropped a single time. Not once. The only time I dies was because of a 750,000 plasma ball hit. All I had to do was park in one spot, fire my weapons and keep and hazard emitter going just to keep the plasma from bleeding through too much. It ruined the fun and excitement and the challenge for me what-so-ever.
So this is my thoughts on this, the reason why your are upset that the PvP community brought this shield passive situation up is because you're having issues running the elite STF's and you need this broken power to keep you alive. I would be more than happy to help you correct this issue by showing you all how to complete these STF's on elite quickly and while still having fun. My @ handle is @Aternal99 So please I'm all about sharing any knowledge I have so hit me up any time
i was in a C&H last night vs like 3 invincible escorts, and even though i could theoretically burn them all to death, they were imposable to tank. we were losing pretty badly, so i said screw it and slotted both tier 4 shield heals, brokenness be damned. i was then able to tank all of them, and kill them 3v1. they of course couldn't out damage the broken passive, but i could still burn them to death. we ended up winning after that.
sorry, my new fleet vorcha plasma build is invincible now
