I think you kind of misunderstood what I was saying.

If someone started firing at my from 10k away and put it in reverse, I would not have any trouble closing that gap real quick.

With that said, this is not how I use reverse. Sometimes I will be in a fight, up close, have the positional advantage, and in order to maintain it I would fly backwards and maneuver to match their movements. A very annoying and effective maneuver... Well it used to be, now when I do it while I attack or adjust my power levels quickly drop. They just need to ignore people whining about someone being to far away... because we can all shoot from 10k. And the right use of powers can close a 10k gap in seconds or less.

The nerf just brings down crafty and smart players.
Like I said before, I was happy with only being given two methods of movement, but now I get worried about putting my ship into reverse. The power drain happens fast, across all power systems, and just doesn't make sense. Not to mentioin it takes forever for my power levels to come back.
