## 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...

## MB’s Juggernaut Build, and how I got 980k in ISA

First of all, apologies for posting my build this late. I’ve been busy with IRL stuff etc.

On to the build.

My goal for this build was to make a setup that was as optimal as it could be, while only using tactical initiative as a CDR method. The result is a fairly standard DPS setup, with some extra good stuff added where CDR abilities used to be. So, this is the build:

A few notes: All weapon epic modifiers are [CrtD/Dm] (of course), all Sensor-Linked weapons are Targeting-Linked and Promise of Ferocity should be replaced with Strike from the Shadows.

Now, I will detail the build choices, as well as some timing tips.

## 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.

This is an example skilltree for a Supporter.

Personal Traits

Hello everyone,

Here are our suggestions for the currently highest parsing DPS ship!

As always, these builds can be used for every profession. Just replace the tactical specific personal trait with an Eng/Sci specific one.

## Miracle Worker Battlecruiser [T6]

Gagarin class with Delta Rep T6 shield

Cryptics latest additions to the 23rd-century style refits are the Miracle Worker Battlecruisers. Even though they offer nothing we already have seen on other ships, those battlecruisers are quite powerful and provide an almost perfect bridge officer layout for Aux2Battery cannon and beam builds.

Here are some examples to give you an idea about how to arm them for the current meta. Both the Federation and KDF variant have the same stats and layout. Only the visuals are different. The KDF one also has battle cloak!

### Cannons

Cannon builds rule the DPS tables for quite some time now, so here are two builds for the two most favorite energy damage types. Both builds have identical bridge officer layouts:

Switching the LtC Universal to Engineering mak...

## Binary Circuit Breakdown by Dangp1

Hello everyone,

today we got a small introduction into the Binary Circuit Queue. It’s written by @dangp1 and we would like to thank him for writing it!
And here is the guide for you, enjoy:

With the personal endeavor system having a “complete competetive queues” objective and the fastest one being binary circus. Yes it should be circuits but some have taken to calling it circus due to it being full of clowns. It was suggested a rough guide be written so here goes.

How to improve at BCx.

First of all binary circus is not like most TFO’s in that it isn’t a mindless spacebar mashing map, a different aproach is required. TEAMWORK and SPEED is more important.

BCx is a RACE between two groups of 5, the map can be broken down into six sections, thee sections are puzzle sections, three are shooty...

## Personal Endeavors and ways to finish them

Hello everyone,

here is a growing list of possible Personal Endeavors for the new System and tipps on how to finish them. It would be appreciated if you could help us completing the list by posting Endeavors not listed so far or better ways to finish them below!

You could open the Endeavor Progression Window even after finishing the actual Endeavors by pressing the tiny arrow at the bottom right from your minimap.

Space Endeavors Deal Damage:

• Deal Antiproton Damage  => Slot Antiproton Weapons, use Pets with Antiproton Damage (Swarmer,..)
• Deal Disruptor Damage => Use Disruptor Weapons, Pet  (To’Duj, Stinger Fighter), use Fleet Support if you’re a KDF
• Deal Kinetic Damage => Shoot something with torpedos, Gravity Well and other Sci abilities and/or use your Fleet Support or Pets 😉
• Deal ...
