There are no words to describe how stupid idea 2 is. You realize the healing in this game is low, the reason people don't insta-die like they used to is because resist stacking is a good thing. It gives PuGs a fighting chance against concentrated DPS. I don't want cross-healing returned to worthlessness. There are plenty of teams who have worked hard to get good at cross healing, stacking resists, and working together. I would hate to see that ruined by people like you who don't seem to understand you can't nerf teamwork. The second you nerf healing, dps teams will be back with a vengeance & you'll be back here crying about being one-shotted by 5 decloaking birds of prey. It sounds like you want the wheel to come full circle back to buffing tacts/escorts and I want none of that.
That said I think tact team needs a revision, the fact that it distributes shields for you is ridiculous, it has taken the skill out of maneuvering, no one turns their ship to take pressure off a weak shield facing they are distributing to, they just use a tact team & it's all better. It has made the science vessels & escorts as survivable as any cruiser. I'm not even going to mention pengs, mines & SS 3, that's beating a dead horse that really does need a fix. So before you get on your list of fixes, why don't you go ahead & look at the mines issue & the cryptic putting in new ridiculous/broken items thing before you come tell me buff stacking is OP.
