How does that bop do that?
With style while flying through your exploding hull usually
Joking aside, the bops universal based station layout coupled to its low hull and low shield means its a ship that the player has to essentially design themselves unlike standard ships that basically ensure your vessel has enough of each class ability to survive the majority of stos attacks - inexperience or lack of knowledge is the weakness of the class (sure, you can alpha...but what about the 15 seconds you are waiting for the battlecloak to deplete its cooldown?)
Thus the typical bop pilot is well versed in the mechanics of the game and its this that in turn gives the bops battlecloak its power as that experience and knowledge lets the pilot make informed choices of when to run an alpha strike - the bird of paper hull, err, prey is the swiss army knife of sto - not as good as a dedicated tool, but its versatility trumps its weaknesses - although in a bops case, if its built well
As to the complaint ascaladar levies towards the bop, may I point out a little place called Kerrat? As most bop pilots who play there would likely attest, theres plenty of ways to decloak a cloaked ship and of course the fact is once a bop decloaks and commits to an attack, its stuck in a vulnerable position until the cloak rengages - plenty of time to punish, restrain and even prepare a decloak stategy before they cloak - As normal, the tools are there but for some reason people would rather look in the breadbox than the toolchest, it seems
