3 Common Sense things would fix SS...
1) Scramble Immunity after expire just like a stun... Call it Hardend Sensors or what ever.
2) Viral Matrix is a Sensor Probe ability it has a 90 degree arc.... SS is a Sensor Probe ability. It should have a 90 degree arc as well
3) Jam sensors used to jam for WAY too long and be WAY to hard to break. It was fixed. SS needs a duration reduction. 30seconds seems a bit extreme to me... 15-20 seconds seems about right for version 3.
Honestly the random target jumping of SS 3... if the duration doesn't change that would have too. A duration closer to 15 seconds or so might make that mechanic less OP.
Now of course there is the issue of SS completely DESTROYING the usefulness of cloaking ships. However I don't expect Cryptic will ever fix that one. Bottom Line SS is a Fed only skill, it makes cloaking pointless, it does make the Defiant Rs cloak worthless as well, its just not as big a deal fed side.
