So, exactly how battle cloak works now? It takes 3 seconds from the time the button is pushed and drops your shields to complete the battle cloak and become untargetable. So, as an attacking Fed, you have 3 seconds to pound my hull while I'm cloaking, and any torpedoes launched will continue to track and hit me no matter how much time passes after I cloak.

As to the topic at hand, I have no opinion . . . I think battle cloak is grossly overrated, I used a Raptor through T2 and didn't miss it.
