There's a critical mass of tractor beams at which polarize hull is completely ineffective. Original Danube's basically swamped all tractor beam counters, for instance. That is, I'd get tractor beamed, polarize hull, and continue not moving due to the three teams worth of tractor beams they could put out. Forumers were of course quick to point out that Danube's were easily escapable with polarize hull.

Also aux to dampeners... Adds to movement speed, but has no tractor immunity otherwise, so far as I know.

releax guys, pvp is totally fine., even with the warbirds and valdor console and the new rep, leach for everyone and elite pets. i mean, the scimitar hasn't even launched yet! you dont know how good you have it!

after 4 months of PVPing every night it's now obvious.
Some escorts may be able to do that, but you can also prevent it from happening if you react within that 2 seconds by using tactical team, RSP, or subspace jump.

PvP is a bit unbalanced but not as bad as some detractors make out. Most people don't learn how to play until the end of the game, stroll into PvP and get their butts handed to them. But the power creep from all these new toys is not helping matters. Scimitar's 3 consoles in their current rumored form being a good example. It sells b/c its cool, but how in the heck are other people supposed to enjoy being tgt practice to stealthed ships with shields firing energy weapons under cloak?

I also think that PVP is still the most fun you can have in STO. I get that dying is no fun but I l lone wolf it all the time. You win some, you lose some, you take measures to improve this and that.... Stack some DOFF bonuses and shield consoles and your good to go. I figured out that my sci is way more badass if I can keep the bug ship on my PUG alive.

I will agree that often I would prefer a kick to my groin from my wife, rather than a bruise to my ego by some punk blowing my ship up and talking smack in chat. None-the-less, a sadist is a sadist and a jerk is a jerk.

It does need to be brought up to Cryptic, that the pvp is important to us and we like their game. Also we would love it if they gave this part of the game some of their attention. It makes me feel alive.....like a kick to the groin.

Worst condition ever as in balance; its not as bad as some previous seasons, but the pvp population has died in the past 2 weeks and for that I have no clue.

I thought its was sto in general dyeing but supposedly STO is making more money than at launch so I cant say sto dying but if the dev don't come up with a few free open maps. We might be dead.


I don't think the dev relies, people only grind rep to be more powerful and to use that power, but on what , one of the dumbest npc Ai in MMO history. I think naught. I only grind to get my nitch and then get my fix from some sto pvp. Although you cant get your fix if there is no more.

In my opinion best online space combat of any game, why would u not develop this, been saying it since launch. Now were here 3years later most have left and the last are all packed up waiting for the final straw to break the back and then so long another pvper goes into space.

Now second topic
tractor spam
I CALL BS.... Its really a L2p issue

I fly a carrier and a escort, I'll drain a player and hold them but smart player can get away just like when I am in my MVAM I don't even feel any movement debuff, WHY!? EPtE and Omega is up almost perma. I am a super fast little fly.

Most escorts can pull this off even if not perma. Its the players that sit and shoot one facing, you cant do that u must time alpha and strike fast, no sit an spit. You must dart and weave or cloak, then hit hard.

Also If people flew anti spam boat one per team spam is negated by almost completely half. Everyone love there DHC pve ship they forget about BFAW + now with set bonus to double beams on BFAW that's 24 beams
(8 reg+ 8bfaw+8set bonus) one cruiser can be spitting out in BFAW..

+ grav builds there is a lot of anti spam boats, wells classes are good at anti spam to.

STO is like a box of chocolate , you never know what the other team might bring sometimes its just not your day.

As far as a recent drop in population, I wouldn't hit the panic button just yet.

It is summer for those of us in the northern hemisphere and many folks go on vacation around this time. Add into that that we have a holiday coming up in the States and you're bound to see a dip.

This time of year is historically sluggish for MMO's in general. Go look kn any other MMO forum and you will see at least 1 thread about it.

If things don't pick up by august then you might want to think about that panic button though.
