My name is Jeff "Adjudicator Hawk" Hamilton - you can call me Hawk for short, if you prefer. Some of you may know me as Arbiter Hawk from Paragon Studios, where I was a Systems Designer on City of Heroes for the past two years.
I hail you now from the Systems Design team here on STO, working on exciting new powers, enemies, items, ships, and more! I've been reading various threads in the forums about your wants and hopes for the game, but I figured it was time to stop lurking and come join the conversation - so feel free to use this thread to talk about enemy groups you really enjoy fighting, ships you love seeing, or just a greeting if you want. I won't be able to reply to everyone, but I'll be reading all your input, and I look forward to meeting you all.
Signing off for now,
First, the automatic question for every Cryptic dev:
What's your twitter?
Now, to the feedback:
As general feedback to the systems team, I would say that in general, science ships seem to be a bit underpowered compared to engineering and tactical ones. When I notice it most is when I play a mission solo since the debuffs, etc ... really help a lot other classes but I feel the sci ships have no punch of their own.
Formerly redleader - Real join date is July 2008
Hey, you're welcome as long as you're not here to assimilate me.
Looking forward to interacting with more Devs
