This week's balance changes are now live and can be found here.

As a heads up to the community, we are reviewing Tactical Cloak for next week's balance changes. Our data shows that an overly large percentage of players are still using Infiltrators on Gold (33.6%). As always, we appreciate constructive feedback on this topic.

Oh for the love of god...

Leave tac cloak alone. It's in no way over powered. It only seems that way in the hands of someone who's at least decent at the game. I've seen plenty of infiltrators that sucked and TC didn't help them suck any less.

I approve, both of this week's changes and the decision to look into TC. Very pleased that you guys take community feedback seriously.

Nice. Hopefully it will be great to use the QFE on gold with actual points in Sentry Turret.

Cryo should do 100 damage at rank 6 (either evolution)

Can you look at the Krysae instead?? Seriously.
And IF you HAVE to change TC, can it be that it changes the "all" damage to "Weapon" or "Sniper" damage instead and leave it at that? PLEASE??

Surprised to see the Viper buff. I'll have to pull her out again!

Wow, it's like you upgraded sentry turrets and combat drones on every possible aspect. Awesome! I'd often forget about my combat drone when playing my HE, because it was pretty ineffectual most of the time. Definitely a step down from the uber useful drones of ME2. Maybe this will recapture some of that glory. Go for the eyes!

Thank you very much! I'm going to get a picture of yours from the Multiplayer strategy videos and use it as avatar!

Infiltrators, infiltrators everywhere.:lol:

Also, lots of descriptions in-game are misleading, is it possible to change that? Cloak rank 6 for instance.

I approve of all this week's changes.  Especially Combat Drone, which I love.  I'll gladly take more rocket damage, and I may have to try the shock evolution now too.

The turret changes look promising, but in terms of the FQE, it really doesn't do much to change the fact that Incinerate, and especially Cryo Blast, are undesirable powers.

Incinerate could use some more love, and Cryo Blast... I don't even know what to recommend there to make it useful

Well the Incisor is still complete garbage, but at least the Arc Pistol is steadily moving into usable territory.
