In PvP, you're gonna have to master some rudimentary chaining of powers and some precise timing of said powers in order to really maximize potential.

If you have difficulty gauging the enemy's status, I would suggest adopting more of a tanking/healing setup on a cruiser or carrier, and doing your best to tank and heal others, and maybe even debuff the enemy. DPSing won't mean much of anything unless you're able to time your burst attacks with gaps in the enemy defenses, which means being able to pay attention to their status and their patterns.

Even the strongest burst attack from a Fleet Defiant or JHAS can be shrugged off by a tanking cruiser's defenses, if it's not timed right.
