what are the best engineering consoles to slot for an escort?



Engineering slots are for universals.



I use whichever the one is that adds a percentage of energy and kinetic resistance.





Ramming consoles?

For full ground sets terran is pretty good.

rep ground weapons are not the best you could have.

boolean, herald weapons are the usual thing people say is 'best'.

standard ground setups use the nakhul shield and certain mixes of other stuff that fits the build, so for example i have a guy that is a strong weapon damage build that focuses less on kit stuff, uses plasmatic bio matter ejection rifles(all boffs use it too) the weapons secondary fire is a large aoe dot blob of plasma, building around the secondary fire mode makes it very strong.

the temp ops spec really helps that, its a dot/hazard that is boosted by temp ops, and temp ops has secondary fire cooldown reduction.

so the build is romuna spec ops kit frame, romulan spec ops armor(luckily got a random upgrade to UR on it mk xii->mkxiii) nakhul shield, plasmatic biomatter ejection rifle and nakhul assault weapon,

this gives 2x 2 set bonuses and gives a lot of crit/critsev and passively makes crouch and aim better too.

skills are rallycry (fleet store UR) the 2 micro torp kit modules and Phasic Shroud

the last skill is cryotronic weaponary, which is a 100% uptime damage buff and run speed debuffer.

I'm considering changing something for paradox bomb as it is so fucking strong and would help gather mobs up to be hit with the weapon secondary aoe.

overall so far this is the best build i ever used and it is pretty cheap.



Got any screenshots? I feel like laughing.

Also, im making this post on Friday, let's see how long it takes this time to post.

I wonder when they decided to change the model for this rifle from absolutely trash to perfectly fine.



I never tried but is it possible to get multiples of those nakhul sets? I need something decent to beef up my Boffs.



Yes , I have all my boffs with the nakhul shield.

interestingly , it has an odd effect when the shield is triggered by your boffs it triggers on you too.

I can't believe it hasn't been nerfed yet,

One possibility is that your firewall isn't giving the executable permission to contact the server because the file changed. ZoneAlarm asks me for permissions after every patch.

Other than that, when this has happened to me in the past I'd kill the executable and restart it. I seem to remember this expediting the process, I might be wrong.

Ships that have references in game, meaning that a patch has put these into the game in preparation for the future patch that adds the assets themselves.

The list was bigger but I removed some because they have already been released.

pretty much everything from Artifacts has been 'leaked', its not really a leak its just putting a bit of effort into looking at the files patches alter.

I'm looking for powercreep . and this patch has quite a bit.



Delphic AP is gonna be in high demand.

The xenotech consoles are gonna be very good and will help people break dps barriers, but i don't think it will massively change the top end dps, they have enough eps as it is and if they have spare eng console slots they use typical lobi consoles for crit.

One of the big barriers for some people to get better dps is that they have an eng console slot or 2 that they have subpar shit in. if you have only 2 engconsole slots then you can have PL and Ass module in them, if you have 3 then theres only few things that are good to put in that slot (for half decent energy dps builds), if you have 4 eng console slots you are obviously in an even worse position and need lobi consoles or crafted [EPS] UR eng consoles to make up for the missing sci console/tac console slots. Now you can slot these xenotech badboys cheaply. This also helps high weapons power drain builds(cannons) to get more EPS where they really could not get anymore before.

They might be on par with embassy sci consoles. 5 of these gives ~150% power transfer rate, ~160 hull penetration and 25% cooldown reduction.


New eng consoles won't break the top DPS records but they will be nice for a lot of different people.

For the first time I think putting down aux2bat will be convenient.

No, your gay ass boffs aren't convenient.

They are in vidyatrek?



Are they? Usually when I ask in /v/, anons are interested, but when they learn that my tiny fleet couldn't get into the same armada with vidyatrek, they get cold feet. I don't really blame them, though.

The one character I have in vidyatrek can re-invite them back to vt right away, but, sadly, is not high enough to promote people to make the fleet jumping less of a hassle.



Im a janitor, maybe i can help you with that, for i think i can promote folks back to their previous ranks.

Let's talk about this more in detail at /v/ chat once servers come back online.




I have 5 fed characters, each with more than 3m fleet credit, and the only thing they are using that credit for is buying doffs from the starbase to throw them back in the fleet projects. I seriously don't need more fc on them. And grinding marks alone is a pain, so if we can find a way, I'd be only happy.



The Borg Science Boff from the Assimilated accolade is now available in the Reclaim tab of the Dilithium Store, and can now be unlocked either by completing an Omega Reputation project or completing the Assimilated accolade.



Don't know, only listened to The Show twice. If he got booted it's probably because he wasn't reddit enough or pure cringe enough to roll with them (seriously, that pavement ape and that dude who you can tell is a fat neckbeard just by his voice).

Normal upgrades do, but all the decoration projects take only 2 hours to complete.

I think some guy on the forums said that it is the same like the Dil Mine - interior opens only after the main T1 upgrade is finished. They just forgot to communicate that clearly in-game.



>Wait we already have the Bar?

But of course!

We must build the most important bits first and foremost, like the bar, the coffee makers, the holodeck and i suppose the radiation shielding for the reactor is also somewhat important.



I actually went to the location to check it out, but all I saw were shuttles flying around. I guess we can't go into the bar until we fix the big gaping holes on the side of the station.

Ok, i seriously need to know where you guys are getting this info.





That's what they look like?

Im kinda disappointed, i was expecting them to look, well, original, like the T6 Excelssior and such…

Then again, i suppose i have to be just glad for the fact that they don't look retarded.

There might be something in the works down the line that makes sense to have it this way. It took like 2 years for the Delta Rising pieces to form a cohesive experience, and I think the game is better for it.

But I never xp farmed red alerts, so I have no emotional investment.



they were great for getting mastery on T6 ships

also when did they add New Romulus-style transporters to Nimbus? of course you still have to run around the desert to do the pattern recognition thing, and it's not like you're ever going to go back with the same character, so it's completely pointless.

What does getting those leaks entail anyway? Is it something we can do ourselves or is it too much work?



I dunno man, i just dunno.

At some point i heard that some folks were just extracting shit from their game files after updates, since Cryptic likes to add content early and later activate it with a big patch.



it's doable, but all I have experience with is the sound files.

in your STO directory there should be a subdirectory named /piggs/, which contains a bunch of large files with the extension .hogg

sound.hogg is obvious, so are the three texture ones. I think bins.hogg is the one with the models and maps, but data.hogg might also be a good place to look.

as far as getting models into a format for your choice of 3D modeling software, or tricking demorecord into swapping your ship with one, I have no idea how to do that.

I was wondering what happened to her after Midnight, she just sort of disappeared. Is she even the empress anymore or has she gone into exile again?

>nobody gives a shit about the Romulan Star Empire




from the Midnight files, she's still empress but the RSE is greatly reduced in power. at least in last year's version of the story, she wants to steal your ship for her fleet.

presumably this leads to the RSE fleet losing at least three ships. or three waves of ships.

the jem hurdurr attack ship may be worth it. the original one was char bound as well, but it also costed real life money.



You don't suppose they will one day add the T6 connie and temporal dildo into that list of ships available through that box?



The Bulwark and attack ship indicate that could be a possibility.

No idea then. All I know is mine turned up one day in the promotions tab after having been away from the game for several months. Previously I posted in the forums off and on, along with subscribing to their twitch channel and watching every so often. The only thing the forum people can determine is that Cryptic said it's based on "loyalty" or something like that. I didn't receive a code or two for it like some others did.

It's an okay ship, but my fleet T6 Mogh is better. At least it has a dabo table and saves me from getting the t5 version. I can't really find a use for it on my main sci fed captain either. It's a confusing little thing that I haven't had any comments on at all when flying it around in pugs or Qo'noS.

I want to play as one of these guys




Fucking cuntic.

I just wanna know about the ships.

so tanky crusier/carrier shit?

very little hope of getting something 5/3.

I want a ship with 5/3 weapons, 4tac/4sci/3eng consoles, tac commander with some access to command and temp ops.1 hanger bay and some kind of uni console like the micro projectile launcher (that counts as a projectile weapon so projectile doffs lower its cd)

just the perfect torpboat. normie energy dps.


astika is the closest thing that can really use it and that lacks other stuff including a hanger. we have a vaadwaur smallcraft and no vaadwaur ship has hangers.




>not 7/1

We need to make cannons and dbbs viable again.



I stand by my idea of a ship that can broadside with DHCs

Instead of just firing to the front it flips the cannons to firing from port and starboard

You are thinking of a Risian star gallion then?



I want a T6 that can fire all its torps broadside



I want one of these guys as a boff but




why can't they just make universal seats actually universal?



they are both completely viable.

they even compete at the very highest levels of the game.

the issue with 90/45 degree arcs is purely skill based.

This is best shown when the skill aspect is removed like in CCA. no broadsiding beamboat can beat a torp boat or 5/3 dhc boat in that.(well now no one can beat it all as near infinite dps has been reached)

the weakest thing in the game now is heavy eng focused ships eng has not developed much in a long time.

sci and tac have new stuff that is very good, eng got some bullshit bubble trash

sci got 2 very nice epg abilites and tac got kemo.

Why isn't kemo eng based anyway?

Now cannons have issues, the retarded DHC crtd bonus not applying with weapon modes 'bug' (same as overcapping acc) is a real problem for cannons.

personally i would replace all dhcs with dual cannons and have them be 90 degree arc and replace all single cannons with heavy cannons, 180 degree hard hitting slower firing also change the crafted wide arc dhcs into crafted quad cannons.

and change that crafting trait for cannons into a damage bonus exactly like the beam one.



now i know that the ships are a carrier and a cruiser. also listings for both polaron and tetryon weapons.

'leak' mentions a new rep.

got 39 keys ready and i don't want any of this now.



are there new leakers?

okay, those optionals should not be optional. if somebody fucking repulsors the nanite spheres towards the transmitter, nobody in the entire goddamn pug deserves marks, dil and a neural processor.

if 4/5 people are competent and one person is that stupid, then the idiot using repulsors instead of gravity wells deserves the relentless torrent of abuse that can only come from everybody else having their time wasted that hard.



no reason to run ISA pug when you can always get a group in the dps channels.



if the dread is 5/3 i will literally suck a dick to get one.

>Mission details for Season 12 – Reckoning will be revealed in the new featured episode, “Of Signs and Portents,” which will also feature the game’s first appearance of General Rodek, voiced by actor Tony Todd. The update also unlocks an expansive amount of content for captains to explore, including a new reputation, a new crafting school in the R&D System to create kits and modules, two brand-new space queues (“Gravity Kills” and “The Tzenkethi Front”) and a full space battlezone that has the Alliance pitting itself against the Tzenkethi in a desperate bid to stop the production and deployment of protomatter weapons.

>new battlezone





>Implying they will ever give you another thunder dome



I hate space battle zones so much. Their only redeeming factor is that they're faster and less annoying to getting your daily bonus marks than whatever shitty new STF they pump out full of objectives that aren't just "shoot mans" and have hard limits on how short they can be.

wtf these people had to borrow a warp 5 ship from the Gorn, and now we're going to get armor and guns and space sets from them?


The Bajorans Lukari were a highly advanced race but were kept down by the Cardassians Tzenkethi. They lost the knowledge of futuristic technologies such as warp drives and public sanitation to the ages due to being an oppressed species.

Looks like it's time for a new ship.



if this is another 3/3 sci ship with no hanger then it it is merely another admiralty card



it is at least confirmed that it's a science vessel



4/4 cruiser sci vessel with lt. commander temporal/sci officer seating


why is there no rigelian personnel officer at sfa?



they weren't one of the 4 founding worlds of the Federation.


It's been almost a year since I played what am in for, did I miss anything cool?



The ending of time war, the introduction of new feddie sub faction that has a TOS era tutorial and a different starter ship, some new ships including some TOS skinned ships up to tier 5 (as well as their tier 6 counter parts) and the Tier 6 Assault cruisers. Yes, Cruisers, they decided to make two of them, one with intel seating and another one with command seating (the latter one has to be bought from wizkids strike wing catalogue as a model which comes with code that you can use to get yoruself a ship in STO).



did they finally remove the old class kits, I remember still using my old medical kit even tho the new ones were introduced, and now my skills are gone



They removed the skills from them and made them cosplay. You have to use the new style kits, and you can finally upgrade kits and modules.


Anywhere I can farm some high level skills cuz on the exchange they are expensive as fuck



If you're talking about the normal skills, look at the tooltips on the bars on the bottom of the window where you assign your skill points. Use alts. If you're talking about the kit modules for ground missions, they drop randomly on ground missions, or done using the rep trees. Boff skills are cheaply obtained from the officer underneath the admiral's office on the fed side, or the barracks on the kdf side.


Kits, I got some from the fleet research lab and spire, one from terran rep and bought one


Any tips for gaining starship mastery fast? Like a foundry mission with a boatload of ships to farm?



Argala in the DQ. set difficulty to advanced, warp out if it's anything but Kazon. also leave the flagship alone and warp out if you don't want to wait 30 minutes.



Malon are easy tier, too. Hirogen are manageable if you have sci team ready to get rid of scramble sensors. There's another mission near it, too that's quick. It's the one with the burst damage to everything that's prevented by hazard emitters and has you helping borg. The borg and tholian red alerts are still good, too, now that a large percentage of active players has RMCs, even if they dropped the bonus XP from the zones.




Awesome, I'll give those a try.


Welp, so much for getting your own ship as a model for yourself.






forget this argala shit.

Make a private level 60 instance of klingon scout force.

launch it solo

complete the first objective, (kill the BoPs)

do not do the next objective.

go into the asteroid field and find a neghvar battleship.

after you kill this another one spawns about 7km away from it, they have 2 spawn locations. if you use broadsiding you can sit in the middle of the spawns and kill them both and collect the loot they drop. if you use forward firing weapons then you can kill both but only loot one without having to move.

They will respawn infinitely.

just mash your keybinds or if you have a good enough build set autofire / autotarget just autoattack the fuckers.

Or have a macro that runs your keybinds plus F and ctrl Q.

This kind of shit is why prices for some stuff seems so high and also why some players have maxed out inventory space.

the number one way to make xp and ec through grinding. Watch stuff on the other monitor while you rake in the jack.

if you are only interested in leveling the ship mastery then about 2/3 runs of starbase 24 solo(if your build is shit it might be painful)



first I had ever heard of it. maybe thats why it closed down?

>new kit research

Reaching certain levels within the Kits and Modules Research School unlocks access to new items, titles, and traits unavailable through other methods. At level 5, Captains unlock access to the “Novice Technologist” title, and may start crafting Basic Kits and Modules Tech Upgrades. This new type of Tech Upgrade can be used to increase the Technology Points and Quality of Kits and Kit Modules. Level 10 unlocks access to the “Adept Technologist” title, Improved Tech Upgrades, and the Large Kit Overbooster consumable item. Kit Overboosters give the user a short-duration increase to their Kit Performance stat and instantly reduce the recharge time of all your Kit Modules.

Level 15 unlocks access to the “Expert Technologist” title, the “Technophile” Personal Trait, Superior Tech Upgrades, Experimental Tech Upgrades, and Passive Kit Modules. Technophile gives a large Kit Performance boost on using a Kit Module ability for a short time, and has a lockout period once triggered. Passive Kit Modules are a new type of Kit Module which are always active as long as the wearer is in Combat and give the user lesser versions of popular profession-specific abilities. There are currently two Passive Kit Modules for each profession. Level 20 unlocks access to the “Master Technologist” title.

In addition to requiring advanced or highly sought-after materials, Passive Kit Modules may only be built by a R&D: Kits and Modules specialist Duty Officer. These new duty officers have been added to the Delta Alliance Duty Officer Pack, the Krenim Research Lab and K-13 Fleet Holdings, and some Duty Officer packs from lock boxes.

With the addition of the Kits and Modules Research School Dynamic Kits and Kit Modules can no longer be upgraded via Ground Tech Upgrades. Universal as well as Kits and Modules Tech Upgrades may be used to upgrade these dynamic items.

We hope you enjoy making use of the rewards from this new Research and Development school. This new R&D school will be available with the release of Season 12 – Reckoning. See you in-game!

Yeah, they'll probably also do the "earn 400 2017 anniversary token" thing for grinding out the ship



the weird thing is that the anniversary event starts on Feb. 2 though. so 400 tokens and then wait a week to amuse Q?

also from digging around the tribble patch files, there is another FE. one that's had voiceovers lurking around since "Midnight" that doesn't seem to be discarded at all since Daniels has lines for it - that one probably goes in the "Yesterday's War" thing, so Crey will finally be able to tell 23c Fed characters the timeline isn't secure and there are some strong hints as to who's manipulating the Tzenkethi, although that might be in a later FE… and it's pretty fuckin' gay and has been done before in STO at least once and in one of the worse movies so I hope I'm misinterpreting it.



So, Who controls the Tzenkethi?

Options include…


>Sela/Tal Shiar

>Leeta/Mirror universe

>Ancient wormhole aliens









"Once, we were all Kentauri/Kentari/whatever. Those who followed the teachings of the scholar Lukar…." you see where this is going.



The Lukari?

Does this mean we get to nuke their little moon world?



well, presumably the "evil" version of them.

also, I'm not sure if the crystal egg things from the murals in that last FE have anything to do with it. I hope the RomuLukari didn't actually become the Tzenkethi.



Knowing how the writers go in STO, your hopes are dashed. Good thing I'm playing a game now with a better narrative than the mess this has become. Minecraft



That's a pretty long time just to put one episode together. Wouldn't be surprised if the whole thing's been reworked. Some of the Midnight files didn't seem too polished. I swear I could other people's voices in the background of one them, but it could have just been my headphones fucking up. Maybe they were never actually meant to be used?

well fuck, gotta get the shield at least.



First pick a regular T6 ship that you think you would love to have as fleet version.

After that, get a single fleet ship thingy, you know, one of those things you can buy from either exchange or from Zen store.

After that, you just need enough fleet credit as well as fleet requisition to grab that ship from the store.

If you are in Vidya fleet, then either help us get the starbase up or go to chat channel called /NoP/ and ask the locals if you can get invited to a fleet so you can buy a fleet ship.



What fleet ship do you want?

And good luck, new players have such a lot of grinding to do and have missed years of free shit.




fleet ship modules?

i joined yesterday on vidya fleet, tried helping with research


i am a science officer, i live to snare people in gravity wells and circle them with my laser beams, any suggestions?

i saw something about reputation, what are those? should i go for it?



Then i thank you for your efforts, as for what the fleet ship modules are, they are these.


If you are getting a fleet ship while owning basically the same ship but the zen version, then you only need one of those things, if you don't own the zen store version of a fleet ship, you are going to need something like 5 of those modules.



I'm assuming your new enough to find the idea of saving 200M+ ec totally out of reach ?

because the only sci ships I would consider are the sphere builder one ,paradox and annorax.

For poor/newer players i would say just get the free krenim sci vessal, but you missed that event(also means you don't have its very useful console and the ship trait that is meta for every build now.)

theres too many options now to care about fleet ships unless you want a particular ship you like the look of.

the newish Eternal is pretty good and has temp ops slots which are fantastic to supplement pure sci exotic damage.

Personally I would get an eternal (i'd get the 3 pack of ships very good value as its cross faction) then save up for an edoulg(sp?) or paradox.

thing about sci ships is they are very obviously tiered, a sci ship with no hanger and 3/3 weapons is clearly worse than a sci ship a hanger and 4/3 weapons.

if you settle on a sci ship without temp ops seats then buy subspace vortex to give you more space magic.

or you could build a time machine and start playing this game 5 years ago so you have a wealth of free shit for every new char you make.



fuck 5 fleet modules


i have like, 2 mil ec

looks like this game is not newbie friendly so to speak.

so i should just get 3000 zen and buy ship packs?




The game is very newbie friendly. The people here just forget that you don't actually need to be top dps to enjoy the game. If I were you, and felt like spending the money, I'd get the 31st Century Temporal Ship Bundle. It's crossfaction and the ships are fleet level. Otherwise just stay with your free ship until the developers start handing you free things as they do occasionally.



an event is starting soon that will give you a pretty good ship for 5 minutes work per day for a month. also omega upgrades so you can get some decent gear and upgrade it without using dil. If you can grind enough you can sell the mats later for massive amounts of ec.

ask for help in the /v/ channel, i'll happily advise on how to make grinding easy.

Why is this fleet full of redditors?



VidyaTrek? I dunno, maybe because we use the STOBuilds reddit for ideas and shit? It also could be because most of us are waiting for the update to roll out so random people joined in.




Because reddit is the only good place to talk about this game. The official forums are cancer and this thread is on a backwoods chan that only gamergate retards come to.

I think you would do well by getting hazard emitters 1 in place of that tractor beam, replace tractor repulsors with something you find more fitting, like sci team. Then replace the 3rd slots hazard emitter with gravity wells.

Beyond that im afraid im out of ideas, since i dont quite know if your build would be improved or broken by some of the ideas i got, like replacing that third tactical console with another invulnerability locator and getting some romulan fleet consoles to sci slots for additional plasma procs.

As for your equipment, id say getting the Iconian rep or Terran rep equipment to replace your current stuff and id recommend you to try and get pic related for your warp core.

But take this with a grain of salt, im coming from a cruiser build, so im not sure if my "screw aux power, all power to shields and guns" approach works for your space wizard build.

Aww, the only survey I got was a customer service feedback survey.


Damn, PWE. Nothing upsets me more than missing out on free shit.


So I've got some zen accrued up and there's a key sale on now. I've never forayed much into the lock box game but I'm considering getting a pack of 10. I was digging around the contents of the lock boxes on the wiki but I'm not sure what's worth it or not.

Any advice/tips? Should I bother?



>Should I bother?


if you want a ship, buy keys and sell them on the exchange, then buy the ship off the exchange.



Good point on the ships.

Are there any useful traits or consoles that are lockbox only? I'll try to find them on the exchange.




>Kemocite laced weaponary

>Supremacy ship trait(astika)

>various sci/epg related ship traits like the paradox ship trait.

>subspace vortex skill(very good for sci builds)

>plasmonic leech (if you don't already have this idk what the fuck you are doing)

thats it. maybe the mining beam console but really thats just trash that wastes a slot, but if you don't have something better then its cheap. If it isn't mentioned in this post then it is likely to be worthless trash.

Protip if a universal console says x% (weapontype) damage on it then it is trash.

If you aren't going to join advanced/elite stfs then fit what you like.

Why people say that i should grind argala system?



Because if you kill a bunch of kazon and then warp out before fighting the last group (and repeat this over and over) it's a decent way to earn ship mastery and loot drops.



funny mix of stuff there.

going by what you say you want, ditch the AP stuff, fit the full set of… wait you can't the torp from that set came on the KSV which you can't get.



fit the omni beam from that set and maybe the beam array if you want that 3 piece, it at least saves you from having to get another fore weapon.

empty that trash out of your sci slots and fill it with -threat embassy consoles.

Weapon Signature Nullifiers -


get the lowest mark ones and upgrade them, do not get the mkxii ones.(it makes no sense)

get plasmonic leech. now get it now.

do not set your powerlevels like that.

set weapons to full, E/S to minimum then the rest in aux.

The iconian rep set is the one that is meta but you will have more fun if you get the full temporal(ship) rep set, it works well with pure sci/epg builds.

you have the particle manipulator trait from r&d science right? work on it if you don't.

consider the delta weapons set, its polaron and the torp is nice aoe damage works well enough with GWs.

get an ultra rare PEP from the exchange, some of the mods are fixed on it so you can find them quite cheap.


get either the delphic tear generator or constriction anchor uni console from the exchange it is meta for sci builds and so it is not cheap compared to most uni consoles.

bear in mind those fleet tac consoles are not helping you much with weapon power that low, they are not fitted for the damage bonus they are fitted for the crit chance bonus.(hence t6 scim users dropping a tac console for the 2 piece set that comes with the ship and the KSV console, which again you don't have but would be really useful to you, thank cryptic for that)

finally, get the 2 piece kinetic cutting beam and assimilated module from the borg rep.

read the 2 piece bonus to understand why you are fitting it.


many things i would have on a sci/epg ship you can't have due to cryptic making them limited to events.

The good news is because you don't have and can't get the improved feedback pulse trait, you don't have to use feedback pulse (without the trait it is worthless) and you have a free slot to fit something else(if you had anything else but you likely don't have a single ship trait) consider the ship traits you can get off the exchange, standoff was cheap when i last checked and it is pretty good for forward firing builds.

get subspace vortex from the exchange.

to test how your build is performing , try to solo starbase 24 and see how you do, if you can do it without dying then your build/skills are on the right track.

bear in mind apart from the stuff you can't get anymore, all it takes is time to get the build you want.

do not miss getting the free ship from the next event.



Stop spreading this retarded shit.

do not grind argala. it is a waste of time.

if you want to grind ec/ship levels/xp do this:


grinding argala only made sense when there was no cooldown and you did it in a group on elite, that ended years ago.

this retarded warping in and out shit is for the average zonechat retard, let them waste their time on that, if they knew the better way then every one of these fuckers would do it and cryptic would 'fix' it.

argala exists to give you your daily delta marks and that is it.



Why so hateful, virgin? Oops. Answered my own question. I'm sure the fact that you type like a nigger also has nothing to do with your uppity attitude.

Argala is as effective as always if you're just in it for ship mastery.

What's your handle in game by the way? I want to make sure I can block you.



By all means tell me your name so you can be removed from the /v/ channel and fleet.

You don't want to hang around with us niggers anyway right?



Why would I want to be punished for your personal problems? I don't want to hand around with YOU, stupid. You're toxic. Probably why you have no friends and feel the need to take a game so seriously. Seriously, go buy a hooker or something.

At least DDIS was a jovial nigger.



I somehow doubt you're in a position of power that high up in the fleet.

KDF is great. Infinite plasmonic leeches for 10 dollars



I bet KI would be a great fleet if nobody contributed towards upgrading its holdings either and just left because (new holding) wasn't T3 after a week.




KDF-Romulan is better, since Romulans get access to T1-4 of their allies. And with Singularity cores, you're really going to need that Plasmonic Leech.



Those BoPs tho



I use it most of the time, only switching to see how the general chat has gotten worse.


Probably or saw that there's 0 provisions and sperged out. I'm more focused on adding to the spire when I can so we can finally get the crith consoles. My disrputors melt things already, I want to see how quicker things melt with them. We are close to completing the krenim lab, and someone decided to upgrade the embassy.

I feel lucky that I have found something new.

This time I will never publicly talk about it

When people in NoP started recommending KSF and giving tips about afkbuilds/overflow bags I knew cryptic would do something. Likely a butthurt faggot said something to the devs on reddit rather than cryptic actually playing the game and finding out.



Looks good, actually. But not for their time period.

Like what they showed of the uniform. Unless they're moving it closer to Enterprise than TOS, it doesn't fit.

I've found it very easy. while the rest of the team either helps or derps around you can just do it solo. All they can do is delay you killing them, sometimes they put a weak aoe dot cloud on you.

In the FE mission theres this great line ,

"they are using delaying tactics" I laughed at that line, it is exactly how cryptic design every new enemy.

They all revolve around slowing down how fast you kill them. Undine jump and become untargetable, to slow you down, voth have directional immunity, nakhul immunity until you kill the summoned ship etc . At least tzenkethi just have a bit of immunity that then expires and they die promptly.



nakhul were pretty easy to deal with if you had any multi targeted skills at all, which basically everyone does

tzenkethi are still annoying as fuck



>I've found it very easy. while the rest of the team either helps or derps around you can just do it solo

I agree. I'm doing TFA about 4-5 times a day, to get my alts ready for sponsorship and this one was by far the weirdest experience I had doing it. And all of it was the team's fault.

1, They were awfully fast getting the bombs and the two bases I've seen destroyed were done in style: vaporize all the tzen around, and only then launch the bomb. They obviously had the dps.

2, They blew up the two far-away bases, and the two bases to the sides. This accomplished that all the tzen reinforcements that can usually be ignored, plus the dread group spawned near the middle. The bombships also started spawning only in front of the middle base.

3, They used grav well to make sure all those ships were packed in tightly and fully buffed. After that, they kept dying repeatedly (for about 5-6 minutes), because they had no common sense and their dps monsters had zero staying power. After I removed all the cruisers near the base, the whole tzenkethi swarm wilted pretty much immediately.

All of this was the team's fault. I felt like I was being actively cockblocked by them from finishing it quickly.


tzenkethi are still annoying as fuck

All the annoyance comes from the cruisers. They have a regen and damage reduction aura around them. They should also be responsible for giving others that immunity buff when CC'd. Remove the cruisers and the tzen are pushovers.

Also, it bears repeating: hit the tzen ships from the front, their front arc shields and armor are very weak.



Oh my god the people that grav well Tzenkethi groups are the worst

They don't even tab to the cruisers they just autofire and pump their skills out at the battleships and never get any damage dealt

I'm not a DPS monster by any stretch but I can outperform these guys during those clusterfucks

Goddamn it cryptic.



Emergency weapon cycle has become slightly depreciated.

if you have GW and FBP on a ship and more than 2 eng console slots you can get weapon haste from temp ops spec and a single xenotech powerflow console gives enough eps that you don't need any discount. This all depends on the particular ship and build you are using as to how useful it is now.

Like reciprocity , its usefulness depends on your build, if you never stop moving like a typical FAW boat its great(speed giving +def and def meaning enemies miss you more, procing it regularly)


hey dudes, whats new in here


so I bought the MME super bundle and the vesta t5 bundle. started a gorn sci…only now do I realize that I goof'd and cant get the vesta consoles. doh.


Can someone give me a rundown of good energy weapon types?

I've read that Anti-proton and Disruptor are the best but even then, there's still so many variations to choose from.



Base Antiproton and Disruptor are good, but most damage types have a very good type involved with them these days

Romulan Plasma, Corrosive Plasma, and the NaKuhl plasma are all good and can be mix and matched without worry

Polaron has taken off as a good type with the addition of a lot of lockbox polaron types

Phaser is still king for PvP but


Everything else is passable, though Tetryon remains the most bland


File: b9c62bef76d1b51⋯.webm (2.63 MB, 1280x720, 16:9, 1484355390917.webm)


+beam or +can are the best energy type. meaning, fit what ever is good and then you don't have to worry about energy type.

If you wanna know the meta, it is terran rep disruptor ba, 1 herald AP Ba and the rest crafted disruptor [pen] with +beam locators.

you can use crafted pen AP instead if you like, you can run pure disruptor with coalition disruptors.

you can switch one [pen] disruptor for a delphic AP.

You can still do pure romulan plasma, it works fine but they can be expensive to upgrade but at least you get your crtdx2 for sure, mix in a little corrosive plasma maybe, maybe plasmatic biomatter(aoe plasma proc)

non meta options:

For torps, vaadwuar polaron helps get through shields, chronometric polaron(mission reward) is a good set for sci and sci/torp mixes, and the proc is another good one for torps. looks pretty cool too.

Pulse phaser can offer some non meta fun, with +beam and terran rep weapon, not as good as [pen]disruptor or normal AP (with or without pen) pulse phaser is like crafted/plain disruptor (but phaser damage) without access to [pen].

other than these notes, if you aren't trying to break into the top 50 dps then fit what you like the the look/sound/feel of.

your weapons actually are the least of your worries, cooldown mangement , careful piloting , other players, other gear, traits, and traits again and sheer luck play a larger part in your effectiveness, people have got 100k dps with white mk x weapons. 50k has been reached with 3 weapons in a t1 ship.

powercreep has reached a new level, so i'm sure we will see another new level of powercreep soon. notice the latest slew of new ships, nearly all have 'defensive' traits/consoles, so something big must be coming soon to shake up the meta(even if its just a new trait or uni console) i'm sure something like a new plasmonic leech replacement would sell very well.

Something has to change, its been a longtime since they made something new that was objectively better than what we had before.When the t6 scim came out it was close/during the anniversary event and there was a ship sale. Just like we have right now.

I think a new spec is coming, thats why the tzenkethi ships aren't in this lockbox.

Guessing they announce in march and release in april(Q1 of the tax year)



I preferred the Echo design myself.

At least it had obvious warp nacelles.

Though the "UFO" design does open up a story possibility with time travel to 20th century Earth to reference alien abductions.




Thanks for the tips, I'll definitely be slotting +Beam/+Can consoles so I don't have to worry about energy type so much.

One last question, what weapons have [Pen] or can get [Pen] on them via upgrading?

Advise them that repulsors would be more appropriate.


Is Agents of Yesterday really any different from standard Starfleet after level 10? Also, is the XBone server as dead as it seems?



The Temporal Agent stuff gave you some minor differences, mainly with killing Na'Kuhl, but for the most part it's the same old same old.

I think some of the missions involving actual time travel do acknowledge that you are a temporal agent, but that is mostly just fluff.

The most substantial difference is that you get the TOS style transporter effect with the era-appropriate communicator. Also a patch thing to emulate ships having different insignia.



Your deflector/tricorder scans are different too



Also your buttons make TOS computer button noises in boff menu/menus in general.

>nerf sci and eng

>buff tac


Tactical Initiative has also received a few changes - it now lasts longer, but cannot have its cooldown reduced, and only affects the caster’s kit modules. Those changes are intended to make it so that the Tactical Initiative remains valuable to use while active, but changes the amount of performance spike that non-tactical captains get due to tactical captains, and ensures that non-kit abilities designed around a long cooldown retain that balance point.

Security Escorts should now be more useful while in combat– they now move faster to keep up with you better, and hit harder while out, but in return players are limited to one pair at a time.

massive nerf to ground tactical abilities incoming.

maybe these balance changes will un nerf torps

or maybe they will just nerf the shit out everything like always.



>nerfing something that is pointless already.

wasting 3 doff slots and an eng ability slot AND having no aux power just to lower cooldowns is stupidly wasteful.

>changes the amount of performance spike that non-tactical captains get due to tactical captains

This pisses me off so much. Cooldowns on tac modules are almost universally pretty short, so they don't really need the TI for them, but the boost for engis and scis was making everything run so much smoother. Fucking Cryptic.



Some of us aren't DPStards and just want the ability to use a wide variety of abilities or easily outfit a shit ton of alts without having to rely on spec cooldown abilities. Aux power is for faggots, Jamal.


There were like five people on ESD on the XBox server. Is it just really this fucking dead?

Also, I feel like sometimes the game will snap me back to where I was ten seconds ago - like the server and my console disagree about where I am, and the server wins.



>There were like five people on ESD on the XBox server. Is it just really this fucking dead?

I'm not sure how the xbox version works, but on grown up game machines there are several instances of ESD and some are more popular than others.

The effect you're describing is referred to as "rubberbanding" and is pretty much exactly what you think it is.



Console has their version of the anniversary event right now, so ESD is barren as players go off in search of Omega molecules, not to mention doing the new missions, not to mention making 23c characters.

The faggot dev that hangs out in redditchat to get his ego stroked has confirmed that FBP is getting nerfed.

Just incase we didn't all understand what cryptic means by 'balance'.

They wouldn't be doing this if there wasn't new level of powercreep just around the corner.



>new level of powercreep just around the corner.

Makes sense, they have been handing out upgrade tokens like a questionable person handing out candy near a daycare over the past half a year.

So what shall it be? Level cap 70? Ship tier of 7? Item level of 20 with a new ultra epic item that is a glowing rainbow colored?



some new overpowered spec maybe. an other console type. the possibilites are endless


Is there any point playing anything other than Tac? Engi was second best when I last played, and Sci was garbage.



I was under the assumption that Sci are on top for deeps. But maybe that's a Sci build with a Tac captain.



The answer is pretty much "no". Attack Pattern Alpha buffs all damage, including exotic damage. Science captains don't come anywhere close to matching this with their aoe damage resistance debuff.


Tac captains taking advantage of exotic damage powers in addition to a traditional FAW boat.

The announcement of the rebalance pissed me off because I literally just finished my Yorktown FBP/TBR off-tank threat build on my tac main.

quite a mix of stuff, but >ground, it does give us a taste of how severe the space nerfs will be.

My bets;

FBP nerf, more than likely a nerf of improved feedback pulse trait. The nerf has been confirmed by devs but how it will be nerfed hasn't

Embassy console nerf, likely that they will just make having all your sci slots full of them pointless..

in line with the ground nerf, tac captain skills will be nerfed, maybe they will do something with sci captain skills to make them anywhere near the power level of tac or eng.devs have talked about making tac abilities only boost weapon damage not exotic but we don't know if that is what they will actually do.

expect no more 100% uptime for anything.

some kind of nerf to exotic ability scaling so chars with low epg do less exotic damage and chars with very high epg do more. it is a bit silly how effective exotic damage is on chars that aren't even trying to maximize it.

If cryptic are really trying to balance things then we might see some torp/cannon buffs, but the bigger issue with torps and cannons is that it is simply easier to get better damage with beams, from cryptics point of view this means that FAW needs a nerf.

do not expect a nerf to npc hp/resistances.

Do expect a new level of powercreep to release soon that will boost top level dps back where it was before the nerf.

but they finally added VO from Kuumaarke for the tier missions in the Lukari Restoration Reputation!


yeah, it's probably just an entirely new continuity so they don't have to stick to anything from later shows, but also don't have to deal with Romulus and/or Vulcan being asploded. and can hammer the nostalgia button by being set close to TOS.


>more exotic damage for anyone

No thanks.

Rest in peace my loyal army of red shirts.


>Fighting Romulans on New Romulus for marks

>Green aoe pulsing DoT thing they do now kills me almost instantly

Just how do they do this?



It's Hyperonic Radiation sci ability. Player version was always pretty meh, while the NPC version required active healing to survive.

>Hyperonic and Neutronic Radiation's damage has been significantly increased

Figures that would turn the NPC version into near insta-kill.

>Cryptic "balancing" things


>Passing round four in the arena will grant Captains a voucher once per day that can be applied toward a special reward: The Sompek Lightning Universal Kit Module. This powerful module calls down the Arena lightning strike for captains in the field!

Do we have to unlock the module on all characters or just one?



its only 3 vouchers, so its probably per character. buts in the rep tab, so who knows

It better be fucking better with their "improvements". Even mentally handicapped children could do a better job at designing these PVEs than the fucks at Cryptic.



Let's hope it's worth dragging alts through now. Last time I broke down and only finished on half of mine.
