# 1 Global Cool Downs
02-09-2010, 12:52 PM
Heres the situation:

My Ship (Science Vessel) has 1 Tac BO, 1 Eng BO, 2 Sci BO.

The Tac BO has Torpedo High Yeild 1

The Eng BO has Eng Team 1

1st Sci BO has Sci Team 1

2nd Sci Bo has Sci Team 2 and Hazard Emitters 1

Why when I click Sci Team 2 does it trigger a global cool down on Eng Team 1? Simple question. But is it a bug or working as intended? I can understand if clicking Sci Team 2 triggers the global cool down on Sci Team 1, but cant figure out why a Science BO skill would trigger the cool down on a Eng BO skill..

Anyone know or have any ideas?

All teams set off the global, eng, science, and tactical.

If that were true, then using a science BO would set off the global cool down on Torpedo High Yeild 1 (a tactical bo) which (as far as I can tell) doesnt happen

What? No. High Yield Torpedo isn't a team... Only teams set of the global cooldown for teams. Same was using Reverse Shield Polarity puts a global on Extend Shields. Using a 'system' on the ship puts that system on global cooldown. Teams are a system.

Also: Hazard Emitters and Polarize hull.

You are basically using a portion of your crew for tax, eng, and sci team ability... It's a crew bases ability. Apparently all crew/team based abilities are on same CD for some reason.

Both science and engineering teams are using same subsystem "crew". Abilties from same subsystem share a 20s cooldown.
