General:
  • Mail can now be deleted.
  • Resolved an issue with Emergency Power to Auxiliary outperforming it?s intended design.
  • The final wave of ?The Defense of New Romulus? has been tuned to be more achievable.
  • The B?rel should no longer request that the player purchase the Exeter in order to commit changes in the tailor.
  • Resolved an issue that prevented players from receiving their transwarp to the Tau Dewa sector block upon earning T1 in the New Romulan Reputation.
  • Tuned down the difficulty of the elite Crystalline Entity encounter.
  • Server Stability Updates.
And a very nice lineup of fixes indeed. Thanks Cryptic.

edit: Never mind... /cough

Will be interesting to see if there were any other changes to EPtA (ie, is it still +50/+1%).

edit:

Stealth Detection Rating - 85.43 @ 64/30 Aux
+EPtA1 - 116.02 @ 87/30 Aux

Stealth Detection Rating is only reflecting the boost from Aux.

Where it states the bonus to StealthSight, it instead says the following:

[UNTRANSLATED: Powerdef.Modautodesc.Emergency_Power_Auxiliary_1_R 1.-129625469]

Well...er...hrmmm...

too bad, i was hoping theyd adjust the epta as well rather then straight "fixing" it.

it wont be enough with all the "perfect" cloaks out there.

How are they nerfing it? They are just returning it to what it was before. And there are some snooper builds that you can spec into.

Escorts should not be detecting cloaked ships - A sci ship fully spec'd to detect - sure.

I understand it's back to what it should be. It's not a nerf.

It's currently broken on Tribble. It's not providing the +StealthSight buff at all that one can see (no pun intended)...but it's obviously broken, as evidenced by the untranslated bit in the tooltip.

nerf was probably the wrong word choice for myself.

1% isnt enough. 3-5% per tier would be perfect.

But that's saying it should provide...

EPtA1...3-5km
EPtA2...6-10km
EPtA3...9-15km

...not taking into account the small amount that would be added from the +Aux.

Sure, it's extremely unlikely anybody's going to run EPtA3 and very unlikely anybody's going to run EPtA2; but look at what it would be giving somebody using EPtA1:

@3km...+200 Starship Sensors
@5km...+333 Starship Sensors

As is, with the +50 StealthSight/+1% StealthSight...it's providing a 30s buff of +66.67/+67 Starship Sensors.

That's more than two Mk XII Embassy Sensor Probes from an Ensign ranked ability.

Were it @5km, that would be more than ten Mk XII Embassy Sensor Probes from an Ensign ranked ability.
