Why does Singularity Jump pull harder than a spec'd GW 3?
The first we heard of getting new PvP maps "soon" was in August of 2010. We're consistently told something will be coming with the "next" update. Absolutely nothing has come to PvP since launch.

I think it's finally time Cryptic stopped stringing us along, don't you?

Because they want to sell romulan ships and convince players to go romulan because its just plain better?

These are not the Romulans from the shows.

Logically, then, shouldn't GW get a -Repel buff?

P2W aside, Singularity Jump has 5 components to it
  1. 5KM Jump
  2. Accuracy Debuff
  3. Damage Debuff
  4. AoE Damage
  5. AoE Snare

It outclasses GW in every way and is 'free' on all Romulan ships, whereas GW costs LtC or Cmdr slots on others.

cause is romulan and it had to be better in order to sell romulan packs. Now that they sold all the packs the wanted the will fix it..... no i'm jocking! balance is not important here

well, if you're quick enough you can stack them for an even better pull

But yeah, GW should be more similar to SJ. They're both singularities aren't they?

I've always thought that GW should get a minor skill cool down debuff and a speed debuff based on how close you are to the center (it is a singularity, and that would be a little more "realistic"), but since TIF I've kinda tabled that idea. Stacking of that would be OP.

If you're specced into particle generators, GW will do significantly more damage than SJ. GW will kill stuff pretty quick, SJ is mostly a getaway mechanism that also has a hold

But yeah, other than that detail, its fairly ridiculous. Singularity tray is basically an extra BOFF that you get for free.

Yeah, GW does do more damage... but it's a wash if you can just walk out of it.
