One of my biggest involvements with the STO community was regarding a situation very similar to this in which I sided with the forum users. However, in this case the cause is more than justified for a 24 hour shutdown. People losing their lives over online idiocy is vastly more important than your star trek forum.
If the offending comment wasn't offensive to begin with, then it would not have been moderated. If it was moderated, then it follows that the comment was offensive. If you can't be bothered to edit yourself to be non-offensive, why does it become my responsibility to edit you, so that your comment can be read without…
When a comment like "I don't know why my previous post was deleted" is followed by "post deleted for discussing moderation" including the part that was relevant to the topic at hand things are a bit heavy handed. Just delete the offending comment which wasn't offensive to begin with.
That's exactly what it is a drain build. Only saying try out different things and without trying you'll only have someone's word as whether it works or not. Bottom line is it's fun and different even if it's "sub-optimal"
Sounds like your definition of sub-optimal is based on dps. Been around way way too long to be enslaved by the pointless quest for more dps. If that is your "quest" more power to you. But you should be more open minded about playing the game and as Spock would say "there are always alternatives"
I know I'm in the minority here but that's exactly how I play. Tac/Tac Ultimate/Tac ship Sci/Sci Ultimate/Sci Ship Eng/Eng Ultimate/Eng Ship Basically did it to be different, but let me tell you it's FUN!
My only point I've been trying to make is that i see people come in and blast away at the transformers with beam overload and all 4 generators up all the time. It's doing nothing for your team and padding your dps meter. I even recently saw a youtuber do it. Please don't do that.
My previous post had some anger in it but I'm not sure I would categorize it as a flaming. When I see prominent youtubers use beam overload on a transformer with 4 generators on it to solely pad their dps numbers I get annoyed. (Post restored after further review. - BMR)
The biggest problem I have with this so far is I am now FORCED to use a loadout when I never had to before. So every single stinkin time I move an item around on my ship or change something on my taskbar I have to go to a specific screen and tab and save? Unacceptable.
"4. Difficult to tell where one post ends and next begins." Totally this. I'm tending to stick with reddit now because everything is just merging together here. I can't figure out who is saying what to whom.
"There's also a bonus dil week. Yeah, they're not even trying at this point. I get that there's no "quick, easy fix", but what they're doing now is actively counterproductive." I can't interpret it any other way than intentional. Besides that if you are actively playing the game you have ZERO need for more dilithium ore.
