It doesn't matter if we're feds or kdf or a romulan fraction, the thing is every time we get new abilities, so do the players or npcs we fight.

We get shiny new ray guns, they get a new ray gun, we get the ability to make the sun go nova, they already launched their attack on the sun...

So we're getting 8... count em, 8 toon traits that's going to make our player characters ridiculous by current standards, coupled with reputation project traits and abilities... then comes the calls for nerfs and rebalance... the borg get a 360 torp spread that bypasses shields, feds and klinks wont decloak to attach each other so they bomb the sun....

these are starting to get out of hand. The cycle of Mutually Assured Destruction needs to find a happy medium and stick there... a lvl 50 toon should only be slightly better than a level 49 toon but I see it way out of whack comparatively. Do we really need to build nukes when a bullet can kill someone just as dead?

Bullets kill individuals. Nukes kill cities. It takes too long to kill a city with bullets.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

The mutually assured destruction escalation ends when all parties are mutually dead.

well no, maybe not but the point im making the more OP craptic makes our toons, the more OP they're going to make the end game npc's to compensate... its a bit of a moot point to do it at all, and the changes throw PVP out of whack as if its not already skewed enough.

Welcome to MMO 'mudflation' (the term comes from the old test MUD days) - which has been the bane of every MMO since Ultima Online and Ever Quest. If a Dev has found a solution to this trend as an MMO ages; they haven't shared that info with any MMO developer to date.

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.
