## Regarding upload of Modified Logfiles

Dear players of the league,

in the light of recent events, we would like to remind everybody that only complete parses of ISA or any other TFO are eligible for uploads. A run is considered complete when the “Operation Complete” Text shows (in HSE the video). As we have done before we will therefore monitor uploaded parses of sufficiently high DPS even more closely. A video recording, as well as multiple logs of the same run, may help us resolve whether a run is valid or not in case there is any problem.
We have taken this formality for granted in the past but now see the need to include it in item 3. of our channel rules. With CLR now automatically cutting off relevant DoTs, heals, etc. further editing is never necessary...

## Minelayer Vorgon Ytijara Dreadnought Cruiser

(Screenshot by @pottsey)

Who doesn’t like a good explosion? If explosions are your thing or like me you always bring C4 into a stealth mission then this could be the build for you.

Mines have always been a favourite of mine even going back 10 years when we could only run 2 mines launchers at a time. Over the past year we have seen a number of positive changes to mines so today I am going to take a look at the Vorgon Ytijara Dreadnought Cruiser. While this isn’t the highest DPS Minelayer, it works well over a wide variety of content due to the Vorgon console set bonus boosting mine speed.

The idea behind this build beyond lots of explosions is to passive tank so I can focus on piloting...

## New Seasonal Table and CLR Patchnotes 1405

Hello everyone,

with the start of Rise of Discovery we introduce a new seasonal table for ISA and HSE, the ISA RoD and HSE RoD table. All your old records from ISA S15 and HSE S15 are still there, but there will be no upload into this league anymore.
Uploads to the new table are possible from tomorrow (05/15/2019).

In addition, we’re releasing a a new version for our parsing program.
here are the Patchnotes:

V1.4.0.5 (14.05.2019)

• Improved Eng Captain detection for space. Don’t forget to use your Rotate Shield Frequency!
• Added Map Detection for several queues:
• Battle at Binary Stars
• Peril over Pahvo
• Pahvo Dissention
• Detection for Overwhelm Emitters

Buran with Veteran Skin

The latest additions to STO’s C-Store are the Command Dreadnaught Cruisers, Buran / Cardenas (Fleet Version) for the Federation and Qoj / Fleet Qoi for the KDF. Lacking a LtC tactical Bridge Officer and two hybrid command seats these ships certainly are off-meta. But nonetheless, the Buran is a beautiful ship which is good enough to punch through any mission STO has to offer. The Qoj, on the other hand, looks a bit odd but offers a battle cloak to even it out.

Here are our three sample builds:

Beams / Disruptor / Aux2Bat [MoD]

Beams / Phaser / Aux2Bat [MoD]

Phaser / Beams / No Aux2Bat

## Comparing [Dmg] and [CrtD]

Hello everyone!

In this post, we discuss whether [Dmg] or [CrtD] is the better weapon modifier for DPS runs. Besides answering this question for high end ISA runs, we also explain which parameter affect the performance of both modifier and under which conditions one is better than the other. [Dmg] outperforms [CrtD] for short high end ISA runs. We also recommend it, as it might be the more future-proof option considering future powercreep.

## Approach

First, we want to show which parameters affect the [Dmg] and [CrtD] modifier and then explain which conditions have to be true that one modifier is better than the other. The following calculation applies to both ground and space combat.
For that, we take a look how the damage is calculated:

TotalDamage = (1+BaseDamage)*(1+BonusDamage)*FinalMu...

## How to build a Support ship

This guide wants to give you an idea how to build a Supporter for space PvE.

A supporter has many jobs to do. Debuff and Heal are the main tasks. A special build is required for this role. This guide will give you some ideas and examples for a support build.
Note: If you click on most icons, a new tab on the website https://sto.gamepedia.com will open.

Ships

The most popular support ships are the Tholian Jorogumo Carrier T6,  Tholian Recluse Carrier [T5_U] , the Styx Terran Dreadnought Cruiser and the Tholian Tarantula Dreadnought Carrier [T6]. These ships have a good layout and hangar slots for Tholian Mesh Weavers or Terran Empire Frigates.
