Seriously, has this not occurred to anyone else?

Its embarrassing.
After 30 seconds you can use one of the other singularity skills (the one you used is on a 40 second CD).

Well im going to cal this the nerf that killed the warbirds

Biggest mistake youve guys made yet the battle cloak is the only way ships like the D'deridex and Ha'apax are even practicle to use now you just made them sitting ducks.

If this goes live i wont even bother with playing a romulan man you guys must be drunk to think a nerf like this is smart

Given, we haven't been able to even think about testing it. (The devs might want to get on, since regardless of the cooldown, this will be a game-changer. The Dhael's, too). There's also the Singularity Core modifier that shaves x% off the cooldown - do we know if it affects both types of cooldowns, or just the global, or something else? And will there be more gear - or even a BOff trait - that will shave that global?

tl:dr; we have yet to see the devs' hole card, at this point 21 days out.

bonus round: yep, they're balancing around a c-store console. fan~tas~tic. mandatory 500z burn, anyone?

While i don't think boff traits should ever be able to stack with other boffs. To make combat cloak so quick.

If boff traits didn't stack people would be more encouraged to pick the boffs they want instead of what to min or max.
And you can't balance around the min/maxers. Seriously, their job is to find exploits, but if you balance for them then what happens is you break the game for everyone else. Hence the sub-optimal build crap, for people who prefer to be all arounders.

There should be a drawback for someone that builds their crew to solely reduce their cloak, or another trait that's just as useful, but doesn't appear with the superior operative trait. There needs to be a trade off.

It totally contradicts the infamous Klingon saying, "Today is a good day to die,"

Why the Devs chose a 20 sec cooldown for a race that would rather die an honorable death in battle than to go home in disgrace is beyond me.

The Romulan race seems more of a , Live to fight another day so a 20 sec Battle Cloak would make more sense.
If I recall correctly. Martok once said, "There is nothing more honorable than victory."

That said, Romulans have built their entire strategy since time immemorial around effective use of the cloaking device. Their ships are supposed to abuse them, it's their thing.

If anything don't nerf the inherent cloak on the ship, nerf the BOFF bonus. Otherwise you're forcing players that may want to have a little variety in their crew to instead field a pure Romulan crew, and I thought this story arc was supposed to make Romulans less racist?

Is the "multiple dismissed ships coming back on map change" bug related to the missing boffs on map change bug? Because when I click on a boff in the character screen both things are fixed at the same time, at least until the next map change.

You forgot to mention the almost guaranteed 3 minute cooldown the console will have making it not worth the console slot.

No activated ability special console with a 3 minute CD are really worth the slot. With 1 or 2 possible exceptions.

Can anyone who was receiving the 64x64 Texture crash before, confirm that it is no longer occurring after the patch?

Mine is working perfectly so far.

The change of the Cloaking cool down from 20 to 40 seconds seems quite excessive, why was it needed?
