I'd bet money you are flying a Tier 1 or non-escort ship though.
My Tier 2 escort has me spamming like crazy (where's the tactcal officer on weapons? That's his job), whilst at the same time I manouver the ship (it's an escort, not a cruiser that sits there with the fat shields), and half the time I just can't fumble the half dozen or so specials I have access to. Oh and control shield power too.
Doesn't feel like Trek, more some sort of crazy whack-a-mole game as I try and hit the right button as the systems come off cool-down.
Actually I've got to te point where I will seriously look at putting a macro on one of my G15 keyboard keys - but I really shouldn't be having to do that
Seriously considering buying a G15 just to bind keys... Which I do not really want to do, I would prefer they at least allow all beam and cannon weapons to be put on autofire, and torpedoes set to manual, that would fix a lot of this.
So, if I do buy a "macro board", whats the best, and least expensive of the type ?
What I find to be the easiest keybind for Fire All Weapons is to set one for Alt + Space and the other for ~
Also not completely on the topic but just something I find great for Cruiser is 1 Turret in each of the Aft Weapon Bays and a Dual Phaser Cannon and Photon Torp in the 2 Fore Weapon Bays (of course preferably MK IV on everything)
