The Buffs
Have any of you noticed that not many players are using their buffs. In the last week, I have rarely seen a player use more than two, much less three.

Now, this last colony invasion I did, except for myself, no one used their ground abilities. They just ran and shoot which pretty much made everyone die. We even had a sci officer, but he/she would not use hir healing at all.

Even if just two of the three players use their buffs, a team can defeat the colony invasion enough to get the majority of the bonus fleet marks.

In all the ones I have been in noone has uses there buffs and we have completed it. Chances are if your using a PUG group that they don't want or need to use them from Ground events. I tend only to use mine if a team mate is in need as my science toon is mostly support of ground but a tank in space

I spam most of my Buffs regularly - if I'm on a team, I make the effort to priorities using team Buffs first.

I save Security Teams and the Shard of Possibilities for drawing fire away from myself or my teammates whilst we flank the enemy.
