Did Cryptic/PWE QA even bother to really test FAW again before passing the 'fix' that broke FAX Crit again? WTH?

Put it this way, since we've seen a demonstration that by fixing bugs, new ones are introduced. I'm simply proposing that it be reverted to what the player base believes is the least broken state. Whilst this introduces a minor beneficial buff, it's better than completely prejudicing FAW users over cannon uses in a very very big way.
We also have evidence to suggest Acc overflow was still broken even then. So it won't benefit us on balance, but it's better for everyone than this.
I know you don't speak for me and I doubt you speak for the "majority" of anything.
No ability should be allowing weapons to proc more then normal. That was one of the worst bugs to ever exist in this game imo. Yes it was horribly unbalanced.
Lets be honest you liked it because it allowed your faw boat to push 20k+ DPS in STFs. Broken is broken.
It is pretty funny... and the PvE outrage is going to give me a good Xmas smile as there is no way this gets fixed till after the holidays. lmao
Honestly if Cryptic is listening... I KNOW Bort you say the work of making CSV work with beams would be heavy... however lets be honest... the work involved with tweaking faw every single patch is higher in the long run... if you need to sell the idea to your bosses. Simply explain to them that ever time this happens, they are loosing RP/PvE Casual players that get annoyed by the state of there main man skill. (Well I guess you won't do that if you think it might mean you job... blame someone else and make the point though lol)
Ok I'll stop being silly... seriously
CSV - Rename it Fire at Will... and take the time needed to allow the skill to work with any energy wepaon. (Seeing beams hit targets in a cone... is MORE true to Canon... it makes more sense in a game sense... and I get the feeling the code is cleaner, I only ever remember one major messed up version of CSV, and when you guys fixed its power useage awhile back it stayed fixed)
