Note to self... get a sword!
Sometimes I think I play STO just to have stuff to rant about on the forums!

Knockback is Working as Intended. STO was never intended to have ground combat, as you can see in this video. Now, thanks to perpetually greyed out power trays that let a level 10 beat a fully equipped level 50 by keeping them from taking any actions, ground combat is finally gone! Well done, Cryptic!

PS: Get a knock or hold to start the sequence. Go close. Push 2 on your sword. Jog after them and repeat. Borg Pingpong is a fun new endgame minigame, for when you want a break from space combat!

I don't do much PvP, but in PvE the sword also "auto attack" better than other weapons. I notice with the option "toggle, never cancel" works a lot better with sword. I test this on Defera using my sword against the borg. It is better than the other weapons (not try with the whip)

looks like they are just spamming attack 3, which is the knockdown attack.

Its equally annoying in PvE, because you kill a whole lot slower when enemies are on the floor constantly.

That or you are all a bunch of lazies, too tired to get up.

No, Sword 3 is the pommel strike. This is Sword 2.

This is a fine example of how bland ground combat is in STO. Energy weapons are a joke compared to melee weapons.
