Newest "patch" has ruined game

jasmalkyne#6628 jasmalkyne Member Posts: 1 Arc User
What in the world was the purpose of the last patch? Whatever was done has made the game completely unplayable. All of a sudden every single enemy is on super steroids. A single torpedo drops fully charged shields and reduces hull strength by 50 percent. Every enemy ship moves at three times your own speed, and is nearly as impervious to attacks as star-man Mario. I've even tried to replay a few episodes I'd already completed, just to see if I was just running into episodes I hadn't seen before that were just extra hard. Same result. I'm still having to respawn 10 times just to get the enemy down to 75 percent. It's absolutely ridiculous.

    Is this PC or Console?

    Cause I'm having no problems on PC.
    Now a LTS and loving it.
    Just because you spend money on this game, it does not entitle you to be a jerk if things don't go your way.
    I have come to the conclusion that I have a memory like Etch-A-Sketch. I shake my head and forget everything. :D

    Make sure your playing normal and not elite.

    Make sure your gear is equipped, and check that your traits are equipped too.

    Your title is dangerously close to a doom thread, however given this is your first post it appears I'm going to let that slide for the time being. There's a ton of reasons you can get hit hard in queues. Several things below you should check first.

    -Difficulty: enemy damage and HP etc scale up with the difficulty level. The higher the difficulty the harder the foes are going to hit and are supposed to be to kill.
    -Gear: if you're at level 65 and are using mk vii whites or greens as a hypothetical, you do not have the stats needed to do much of anything.
    -resistances: this is a big one as well. if you have no resistances towards damage, you are eating the full brunt of the attack vs reducing it via damage resistances.
    -foe type: certain foes are known for being a pain. terrans as one example have nasty torp spreads, iconians spam you with viral matrix, and the Mokai Klingons love to send you flying.

    Post the missions you're having difficulty with. Also please post a copy of your ship build so we can see what gear you have including rarity grade, level of the item and so on. We will also need to see your bridge officer powers as well as your skill tree. Once we have a complete picture of your build and the situation we can offer actual advice beyond just basic generic. Incase you're worried about it, if anyone gives you grief in regards to your build, it will be dealt with. If it's found a bug is at fault I will forward the issue up the chain. If it turns out to be a build issue, then we will help you correct the issue. Until we have the extra information there's not much we can do.

    I play both Console and PC....there's no noticable differences in damage on Console.

    Check your equipment if they are slotted, occasionally they do get removed from your ship

    I have noticed a drastic issue with connection (lag and rubberbanding) since the last patch but everything else seems normal on PC and I play all three types of difficultly.
  • kingawakingawa Member Posts: 11 Arc User
    I haven't noticed anything of the sort happening with my game. I did have to re-apply all my traits though.

    If you are having issues with running missions of any kind, like other people have said: check your difficulty level and then check you have the right level and rarity of equipment for your captain's level.
  • echattyechatty Member Posts: 5,914 Arc User
    Yeah. The only time I seem to have real difficulties, all I have to do is check my traits. More often than not, they've become unslotted.

    Trait unslotting is some issue with leveling or reputations as best as I can figure. I haven't had any character randomly unslot their traits that is 65 with all the reps done, but leveling up it happens multiple times.
  • thehnthehn Member Posts: 83 Arc User
    Ive found the trait wipe almost always happens when a mission forces you into a mission specific ship.
    When you get returned to yours boom! ... All traits wiped.
    It happens other times as well, but the mission ship swap is a near guarantee for me.

    Interesting... anyone notice that the OP has yet to return to update us based on feedback?
    I don't want to be "that guy", but... kinda feeling like the one post wonder just wanted to cause a riot...

    PLEASE prove me wrong OP. I don't want to be "that guy"!

    I don't think he just wanted to cause a riot. he could be new to the game and it could be one of two things:

    - He accidently upped the dificulty setting on his game client and didn't realize it.
    or
    - He hasn't bothered upgrading his ground or ship gear and is playing higher level content still using MkI to MkIV gear (depending on the missions and what rewards he chose).

    I'm hoping he's trying to get help. My concern is that he's not responding after about a day now. No updates on if any of the suggestions have helped or not.

    Make sure you're not flying a Tier I ship or Shuttle in endgame content.
    Make sure you're using Shields.

    I have seen nothing different with the game, we still commit mass killings in STO with no problems against the NPCs.

    Yeah, no lie. If you get a good team, To Hell With Honor is no more trouble than slaughtering pigs in the Fall.
