"Hey Captain I notice you've put us on Red Alert so I've automatically cut us out of our high defense impulse mode so we're much easier to hit now. It does give us more power to play with. Maybe if you're VERY nice I'll adjust our shields to comepensate for the incoming fire."

So fix the underlying issue. And if its a refusal to address that, make it inherent and not cost slots that are precious to non tac ships. Ships that already get thier asses handed to them as it is.

LOL ur magic shield powerz don work wit out TT LOL! Just doesn't seem rational.
I actually agree with you here. But I would prefer pure manual distro system. problem is, the amount of dps makes it somewhat futile to manage manually, because the manual distro is too slow, hence my first idea.

The other idea is based on slow cruisers and their sorry state, where they need to use TT, which in turns pretty much screws their already limited tac slots. They are punished for their turn rate and cannot change facings, and on top of that there is not enough ensign level skills. So its one bird with two stones.

Also Thistler, if everyone would have auto distro always up, we can pretty much remove the shield facings and make a single shield pool.
