Into the Crossfire | STOked 89

Season 4 of Star Trek Online is nearly here, and the guys chat about the new features they personally are looking forward to. Plus in this week’s MATH segment, learn the ins and outs of the Efficiency!

Then we wrap the show with kicking off a new foundry review segment, called the Found Files. We’ve assembled a dedicated foundry review team, and we introduce to them and review two epic foundry missions!

I can find no problem with either the player of BOff version of the Efficient trait.

The player version adds +10 to Auxiliary, Engine, Shield and Weapons Efficiency Stats, and the BOff version adds +5.  That’s not +10/+5 to power levels, that to the stat, as though you were buying this skill. The Efficiency stats add more power to your systems the lower your power levels. So you gain more of a bonus if you power level is low.

Here is the formula:
(StatStarship_X_Efficiency/300)*(75 – Y_PowerLevel)
(100 / 300) * (75 – 25) =

Where X= Auxiliary, Engine, Shield or Weapons Efficiency Stats; and Y=the corresponding power system level. Note, this formula affects all Efficiency stat values, not just those gained by the Efficiency Traits.

The net results are very small and the UI may round your numbers down, so you may not see the bonus, especially with high power levels.

These values are old and have not changed in some time.  I verified today that they are working – at least in Season 4 they are working.  So if for some reason there is some other odd problem on holodeck right now that I am unaware of, it should be resolved by season 4.
