Nope. Not at all.
You think that your beta test was bad?

My thoughts exactly.

I'd love to have this set for theme, but an increase of the Dominion synergy polaron bonus means it goes from a measly 8% to 12% or something like that.

When I slotted the MK XI 2 piece recently, that meant about a 1.5% DPV gain on a DHC.

While every last % of extra damage is good to have, 1.5% on DPV doesn't compete in my mind, even remotely, with alternative options.


By alternative options, I generally mean Borg 2 piece, because even after the nerf no other 2 piece Eng/Deflector does anything noticeable enough to make it worth swapping out from for an Escort.

(I'd love for Tet Glider to be one of those that replacements for example, but in both controlled testing and live 5v5 matches Tet Glider w/ DHCs + CRF seemed to make no significant or even remotely visible impact on damage performance).

collector?

Borg set is great on heals..but my wingman got me on that. He is a great healer.

Now with that being said I understand....but I disagree in the regards to team play. Even though borg set can help in team healing its a wasted proc if your health is full....do what your suppose to do in team..my escort is to do damage..my heals heals me. That my philosophy.

8.8 to 12 is a great upgrade. Thats more dps....plus the other things that can be granted since ur a dominion ship.

while i agree on an escourt 2pt borg is good, i also have to agree the jem mk12 sucks. but ill also add borg 2pt on escourts is not a must.i was in a 48 min match against turks with tetglider and adapted maco sheilds. to be honest tetglider does over all perform better then borg. but need the whole team to do it. the omega engines and deflector are better over borg any day hands down. just some people love free heals.

I agree, I don't think it's a must.

I can't speak to the whole team using it, I've never seen that personally - so maybe that is where it shines.

It's less about free heals for me, and more the fact that my combat logs didn't really show any kind of significant improvement to my personal output with Tet Glider.

To be honest, I'd love to find something other than the Borg 2 piece.

It has been stated that Lobi gear is *NOT* supposed to outshine ESTF gear. It is supposed to be behind ESTF sets. The reason is anybody and their brother can get Lobi gear, but only people who can complete ESTFs can get ESTF gear.

So no, they won't be buffing the set to compete with other sets. They are only buffing it to get people to spend Lobi. If you are looking to beat the system, you aren't going to do it with the Jem set.

It is still a nice set on the few ships it was designed for, but even then those shields.... ick...
I once again match my character. Behold the power of PINK!
