What really bugs me about STO is the fact tractor beams are sci boff skills.....arent tractors supposed to be a part of a ship?


Well anyways i hope at somepoint tractors can be equippable like the grapple hook from the NX.


So any idea how much longer tribble gonna be down?

So the System Cooldown between any two EPtX of the same time is as long as the power buff, equaling infinite uptime?

Is the Global Cooldown between two different EPtX (such as EPtS and EPtW) still 15 seconds or is it 10 seconds? If it's still 15, then cruisers which run 2 different pairs won't infinite uptime (and lets face it, Cruisers with 6 or 7 Engy Slots don't have much else useful to run).

Thanks for listening Mr. Hawk. Does that cooldown also affect running two types of EptX ability? Well ill test it for sure.

*edit*

STO has a diverse group of players with a wide range of expectations and playstyles. To that end the STO team should endeavor to create a variety of content with a diverse set of difficulty levels and challenges. Cake for everyone!

UI:
  • Updated the Character select screen:
    • Your bridge officers have now joined your side!
I noticed that with the addition of the Boffs, it no longer displays the armor you have equiped. Even if you have it selected to be visible in-game. Intended?

thank you for fixing EPtX gaps. I would have been OK with just extending the power to last the whole 30 seconds and lower the overall resist level, but this is fine. I still think (coming from a shield tanking cruiser, mind you) that the resist bonus from epts should be cut in half.
The problem the original change was causing was the spike damage in the gap when you lost both shield power and the ability itself. It was just too easy to exploit.

Thank you for listening to us though regardless!

Are you going to add option to use the old UI before The Legacy of Romulus launches on Holodeck?

I assume that the EPS Manifold Efficiency bonuses will be the same duration as regular Batt power bonuses, even if they activate for EPtX? (i.e. 10s at 0 battery skill, 20s at 99 batt skill)

Is the power bonus a flat +10 for EPtX/+20 for battery use? Does it scale with Starship EPS skill, or higher EPtX ranks? (Can be redone as a % of the power bonus gained from EPtX or batteries?)

Looks interesting though -- and better than the previous battery-only version of the trait!
