Does AOP 3 change that much ?
In his "pro tip" section he includes the CRF3 as an alternative (pretty much as I planned to use it).
The guide gives the APO3 build (which has a tiny bit more alpha strike power) mostly because APO3 is easily obtained for everyone whereas only tac captains can train CRF3 and not every beginning player has a tac friend who can train it for them.

If you can get CRF3, you should probably use it.

Or TS3 + TS2 ?

In these cases which one does the keybind choose to fire off ?
One can't really tell for sure. But once you are in the fight, you will cycle everything all the time, so you won't have this problem often (unless you use tac initiative). And you can always fire skills manually if you see this problem coming up.

It is still a good setup. Maybe not quite as dominant as it once was.

2-part borg still gives the hull heal, which healing-wise has always been the more important part. The shield proc was mainly interesting for resistance.

I personally don't use AtB, but especially on escorts I don't think that it is particularly useful. You have enough slots to double up on all important tac skills, so you won't gain much from using AtB. This is different for cruisers.
