Personally I pretty much fly only aux2batt cruiser builds and am not happy considering the prospect of all my builds becoming nonviable for PvP. I run my 2 aux2batts on keybinds, so if this change occurs it would mean having to keep track of an extra 2 abilities while deciding if I will need EPtS in the next few seconds, thats just ridiculous, and really not necessary considering the state of cruisers. What does the auxiliary system have to do with emergency power that it would require a shared cooldown? It doesn't make sense so I think its just a BS rumor, but if its true...
This isn't the case on tribble, and Aux to batts already shares CD with Aux to Damps and Aux to SIF. (And if you run 2x Aux to Damps you can't realistically use either of these at all)
It also means you have by and large, really poor healing for yourself.
It can be very powerful, but it's definitely not without its downsides.
