Simple as that: Because the queue system creates 5vs5 matches, the game needs to have mechanics that promote teamplay, i.e. stuff that is only useful for your team / that you can't do on your own and need teammates for. I mean, even in a PUG a cruiser could *GASP* heal an escort or an escort could give a fellow team mate a tac team. If your team is not capable of stuff like this, you deserve to be be blown up and lose in the end. Just sayin'
Currently the disable is overpowered when you match it with alpha strike. I've had it done to me and I've done it to people with my BoP. Sure it's a bit tricky to pull off but its not that tricky.
My suggestion would be to change it to a partial disable and have it only knock out engines for a few moments preventing a player from moving or using a skill like evasive manuever.
i think alot of people need to stop cryin on the BO's skills, people didnt like the AOE dmg on there allies with mine and tri's. they changed it, people complain with torp spreads,
umm when are they going to realize its a teams, work togather to win, not a fed captain thinkin hes takin on the whole klink fleet,
stop cryin. learn to play as a team. and if cryptic keeps chaning stuff everyweek, cause of cryin kids, then im leavin to play eve, alteast when u pay them they got the mmo down with the econamy and stuff. just got too put up with point click flying,,,lol
