yea i know the trolls are going to flame me but i dont care i was hoping for so much more out of this game ... a game i was waiting for ...for over 7 years think i heared them working on this back when SWG came out .... oh well maybe part 2 will be good
You shouldn't have to face trolls or flames when your stating your not sure what your talking about. At this point cloaking robs you of your shields. Any damage you take goes directly to your hull. You are still at full power. If in combat in Bird of Prey only, you can battle cloak, but it takes timing and tactics to pull off usually.

A) it does not clear you as a target for about 5 seconds. But it instantly takes down your shields. So if not executed right, then you will surely die.

B) it requires a healthy crew to accomplish full cloak, so you have to be pretty far away if injured to not be seen.
