  • Because they WERE...
  • Alas PVP! I knew him Horatio.
  • Other than to say "You see how FAW gets its numbers now" I'm not sure what you're getting at. Damage dealt and DPS are completely different stats. I'm assuming as my CLR doesn't have a heading for 'dealt' that you're reading one of the many 'damage' columns. You don't have to stop the log, you can get any info on any…
  • Hey, as as at least a couple of our Mod team seem to enjoy bashing people that are different than they are, in particular people of religious faith, maybe they'd enjoy this clever atheist video? I hope so! Because what's a day without throwing around the phrase "watch it with the Hate Speech"? Or gloating over handing out…
  • You seem to be a little held back intellectually. The OP references a political event, the Stonewall riots. Look it up. That makes this a thread about politics. Understand? They aren't even allowed (supposedly) on the forums. Look it up. Educate yourself, take some courses, do something. Or maybe just stick to posting on…
  • So you just FREELY admit that political statements and discussions are just fine by you, regardless of what the forum guidelines are. Good to know. Based on past moderator and manager behavior can we expect some TRIBBLE jokes and perhaps a little poking fun at religious figures? All in good taste mind you. The bias of the…
  • I think that even if she decided to allow a post on a political topic she'd move it to Ten Forward where it belongs. Because that would show even handedness in moderation, and not the typical reactionary slamming of anyone that deviates from party line. I'm almost certain that this thread will stay right where it is, and…
  • Well that isn't overly self important is it. I recall you boasting that you could attract half of the attacks in an STF. Well on average every player could expect to take 20% of the attacks. You took an extra 30%. So, you saved each member of your team from (forgive my numbers mr math, i'm being GENEROUS) 8% of the…
  • Or we could just accept that different weapons and modifiers are for different ways of dealing damage and just move on with our lives. Everything can't be the same. This is starting to sound like the 'Oh torpedoes are so hard to use make them better.' tribe's mantra. That mods in crafting are subject to RNG is pretty…
  • Well thanks for checking around I appreciate it! I guess I'll just run with that formula for now.
  • Well, according to the formula that's what it is. And 125 is 400%. Essentially 4% change for each point removed from 50. Or as the wiki says... The regeneration value is modified by your shield power. At 50 shield power, you have the number listed in a shield's description. For every point above 50, you shield regeneration…
  • Yup. I love all that stuff. But there's a reason why I don't put it out there myself. Because it starts like this: "Get your Iconian set completed and watch your numbers run away..." Oh okay! Let me get on that. It's a common theme. It would be EXTREMELY difficult at end game gear level to *&^( that stuff up. You would…
  • Oh I dunno. I prefer the developers making sensible decisions over just removing an aspect of the game. It's spurious to make claims that just because something is fun to use for PVE it doesn't need to be a balanced. Outlying abilities are what they are; indicators of poor design. Generally I find the PVE crowd to be a…
  • TY for reading and the comments guys! I'm with you on the video thing. I find that combining a video with a blog post I can get a lot more information across successfully. I call it "Multimedia". Okay kidding. I do call it that, but it isn't news. The point is I like to do exactly what you say as it gives people a choice…
  • Okay I found an OLD video where I did a demo with a friend on how to use the abilities. Now it is pvp and it is ancient. And the actual demo starts at SIX minutes in. Now the video does show how abilities interact with power levels etc. Of course this would need to be redone, but is that the sort of thing you're thinking…
  • TY for reading and the comments guys! For the "What to do when you're actually playing." video. Are you thinking along the lines of showing what cool downs that maybe you simply want to rotate, what ones you want to save, and what ones you want to use in a special sequence? I'm working on a shield resistance one, but I'm…
  • And that's it. And really, as Virus and others have posted, it isn't the people that are finding the information useful that are bitching, it is all the professionals. And that's been my experience with feedback coming up on three years of doing that sort of thing. My favorite though, and yes I like this story, was the guy…
  • Dude, if that's anything like an id10T I get those. Life goes on.
  • It isn't always a DPS loss. It really is dependent on the overall build and item level, as well as the team environment. And also the torpedo. In short, lower gear/space traits/everything else, then the easier it is to mix torpedoes and energy and see a gain or at least certainly not a loss. Remember there's a huge…
  • I think they'll be combatable with OR without existing ships! Unless absolutely no other ships exist. In that case they'd have to fight among themselves. I think every ship that comes out now is a cut above the old ships so they should, in all honesty, be fine in end game combat. Well you need to get your own gear. And…
  • So. You're plasma explosion Critical damage is 300% of a normal hit. Impressive young one.
  • Here's to my brand new OP ship mastery! Woot! Woot! All aboard the OP train! Seriously, that's a hardcore mastery for a DCE build.
  • Much like what is on this page. After a moments consideration, I think the saved content would make for some great dramatic readings.

  • You're writing above your pay grade. Stop it. Your name calling. That's juvenile. Stop that too. You can't agree 'in principle' with a fact and then disregard the fact to suit your world view. I agree that people behave like jerks. I also ignore anyone that links a parse after a run. I'm not interested. I AM interested in…
  • There's a lot of bigotry in this thread. Stop it. Complaining or being unhappy with DPS as a convention is popular and sometimes even warranted. Not this time. There clearly is a team minimum DPS requirement for some events. It's built into the game by the developers. They are of the hard and soft types. Some it's GG you…
  • 3000 pages? Only showed 103 when I saved it as a PDF.

  • Links to builds please.
  • Miley Cyrus isn't an actor! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=End5wZKyx6Q And I must say, embedding video is SNAPPY!
  • I don't think anyone's been terribly put out by this turn of events. As it stands now I'm 100% positive that there's archives of the most lively discussion. Also I believe this thread has served it's purpose. The only items that remain to be hashed out is whether Elizabeth Hurley or Robert Downey will portray Thissler in…
