I still think instantly clearing debuffs with one skill makes that skill pretty useless. It's certainly the case with Jam Sensors. Less so with Scramble because it can affect multiple targets at once, but still...
For example, using Polarize Hull to counter a Tractor Beam is much more balanced, IMHO, because:
- you can only use Polarize Hull for yourself
- PH has to be running while a Tractor Beam is applied, meaning:
- if it runs out while the Tractor Beam is still active, the TB will affect you again
- the Tractor Beam will affect you until you can start PH, which means it will still stop you for a short time.
But countering ablities with Science Team is just awful, imho. An instant cure, from an ability that you don't even have to have yourself. Meh.
