  • You know, every time I see it, smoke's sig always leaves me slightly awestruck. Excellently done 3d artwork/rendering.
  • So now you're comparing people who bothered to learn how to DPS to people who use ILLEGAL performance enhancing drugs. That's just a barefaced insult. Yes, there were some DPS players who used questionable mechanics to boost their numbers. That's one of the reasons the DPS community split to begin with. But on both sides…
  • No. Those are locked at 20. However, your overflow bag can have a large number of either, but once you get above 50, the game won't let you do much of anything until you clear them out.
  • I'm sorry, I just realized I completely forgot to answer this part of your post XD. I was initially just here for the free ship, but then I noticed I was no longer in the 50k channel and my ego kicked in. Being booted from a channel I worked pretty hard to get into in the first place was unacceptable to me, and as such…
  • Well after my most recent ISA run (which I will admit was a pug, because I was bored of Dabo on risa), I clocked in at 54k DPS, a 15% improvement over my previous 46k. Adjustments made to build: Changed to the T5U Tac Scimitar (and now naturally run 5 locators). Removed all embassy consoles, and replaced them with the…
  • My next question would be if it would simply be better to add a single torp to the build or stick with a pure energy build. I run a full torp build on my rommie sci, and it's hella fun, but it's effectiveness leaves something to be desired. However I am seeing the single torp builds more and more.
  • I think they went the wrong way by toning things back to begin with. Yes, there were things that were going on that shouldn't have. Yes, there was a massive power tsunami, but honestly, instead of nerfing us, why not make the enemies stronger? And I don't mean add another 1 mil HP to every enemy in every instance, but…
  • I'm going to stop you right there. Risian, I know you are probably one of the more level headed players who comment regularly on the forums, so I won't waste your time by picking your post apart piece by piece. So I'll just go ahead and say it. If every player in ISA did 75k, the instance would be over in just under 2…
  • I guess I just miss seeing all these passionate players coming together and voicing their opinions on something they thought was a major injustice. I don't see threads like that anymore. Most of them are either troll threads (which are still highly entertaining), or pure rage threads. Not nearly as constructive as the old…
  • Well I was gone for 6 months, and when I departed first, the current record was only 220k, held by Odin, so I probably missed the insane high parts. My apologies. But yeah, I recently did a parse of an ISA I ran earlier, and I am now seriously considering (and by seriously considering I mean it's going to bloody happen)…
  • Actually if you remember from the dev blog about that, those across the board damage nerfs were because of DPS league players (yeah, it's our fault guys) going into public events, public battlezones, non queue everything, and just doing what we did best and DPSing the hell out of NPCs. We would go into the badlands BZ and…
  • Normally I don't side with most LTSers (aside from a select few), but here, I have to put out a resounding HELL NO. As was stated many times before me, what's the point of getting an LTS if you can just buy the perks for much cheaper than the package? Besides, as was also stated, the Borg BOff is somewhat underpowered and…
  • You know, I had completely forgotten that borg RAs are a set queue now instead of a random encounter. Honestly they aren't worth doing without the boosted EXP. If you need omega marks, go do some Defera ground. You can get your daily bonus there in about 2 minutes (shoot up dem priests at the temple!), and if you need the…
  • This. A thousand times over. One of the main reasons I miss how thing were back in S6. You could actually FAIL stfs. Elite actually MEANT elite. Advanced now just means more HP and a little more tickle. I will grant you the RNG for getting prototype tech to get the mk XII VR gear was a pain in the TRIBBLE (I have several…
  • Tbh, the only way to "balance" the game in it's current form is to basically take it back to square one. And a ground up rework is not only bad for business, but it's horrible for the playerbase as well. If you look over the hundreds of dev blogs from the past 7 years, and look at all the changes that they've made, there's…
  • What are these... "Klingons" you speak of? Never heard of them existing outside of NPCs.
  • I must say, out of all the pro-engineering threads I've seen in game (and I've seen and participated in MANY of them), this has got to be among the most toxic of opening posts. I understand your frustration. I understand why you want engis to be more relevant (not stronger mind you, they're incredibly strong for what they…
  • He is Q. One does not question what he does or why he does it. One simply facepalms and hopes that Q believes them to be boring and summarily ignores them. The only downside is that Q may believe you're so boring he chooses to... "improve" you.
  • You know, I'm actually genuinely amazed that this took 12 pages to appear. I've been waiting for it since page 1 XD.
  • You'll have to forgive me if I choose to disagree completely with you here. I have no argument with any other point in your post, and I frankly agree, TBS FF was far more fun than Street Fighter Final Fantasy. But honestly, not everyone has the ability to spend money on a game, whether it's in small amounts or large…
  • (and now the second response since it seems the forums don't want me to do this all in one) Except that now most people speed tank. Last time I was in PvP, I actually got physically sick trying to track a target because it was zooming around at warp speeds. Combine that with all the cheese, for starters it almost crashed…
  • But again, there's already so many heals in game, that the engi captain abilities are almost a null point. You have ET (chunk hull heal, SS restore, low cooldown), Aux2SIF (chunk hull heal, very VERY low cooldown, hull res boost), HE (HoT, hull debuff cleanse, hull res boost, low cooldown). That's all you ever need for…
  • If I could remove one thing from the game, it would be the hatred of F2Pers that some LTS players seem to have. Believe it or not, most of us aren't that bad. Yeah, we didn't pay for the game. Yeah, we can get all the same stuff you can. Oh wait, we can't. We can't get the LTS destroyers (or their T6 variants). We don't…
  • You know, after reading it was going to be a sci ship, I was kinda saddened the flying saucer didn't win. After all, what better design is there for conducting... experiments... than a classic flying saucer XP
  • I'm just gonna stop both of you right there. They tried the holy trinity, and it didn't do squat, so they took it away. And as for boosting engi tanking powers? Their ability to soak damage isn't the issue here at all. It's the simple fact that there is no need for dedicated damage tanks in the current game! The current…
  • Alas, if I had a good solution, I probably would have provided it as part of my post. As is, there isn't really much I could think of. When you need damage output, you traditionally turn to tacticals. When you need crowd control and space magic fun (cmon, what else could you possibly call a GW3 combined with TBR and a…
  • After spending half an hour reading this surprisingly long and civil thread, I am inclined to agree with many points brought up here. I agree that nerfing tacs and scis will probably result in riots. And tbh, cryptic is often too heavy with their nerf bats anyways, so let's stay away from nerfs please. But on the flip…
  • I'm against what OP says here. I've been told a few times by top DPSers and by my own experience that tbh, weapons don't make up a huge portion of your DPS at all. The generally accepted ratios (by DPS players, not casuals) are as follows: 25% Team, 25% Gear (only about half of that is weapons), 50% YOU. So if your DPS is…
  • I really don't get it. People have been clamoring for a T5 connie (and then T6 once the ico war was released) ever since I joined. And from what I've heard, ever since the game first came out. And now you're getting your T6 connie. WHAT IS UP WITH ALL THE FUSS? If you're really in desperate need for your T6 connie fix,…
  • So let me get this straight. After FINALLY giving you a ship that you've all wanted for so damn long (trust me, I've seen many of those threads), even after saying it was impossible, and FINALLY getting permission to do it, and FINALLY actually putting it into the game... you're going to bash them because they're making it…
