Couldn't think of anywhere better to put this. If a moderator feels this belongs in a better place, please do move it.
It's very clear by now that there are 'must have' items and abilities that everyone needs. In terms of 'must have' abilities, it's Reverse Shield Polarity, and there is a separate thread going in the Klingons and PVP Forum.
In terms of 'must have' items, it's definitely the EPS Flow Regulator.
At the moment it does both of these effects:
-helps change power presets faster
-helps recharge system power faster
Stacking now implements some diminishing returns on the power recharge rate.
My issue is, with an item this 'powerful' or versatile, everyone will always have at least one. Might as well just build it into ships.
I recommend breaking up its effects into two different consoles. For example:
-EPS Flow Regulator: helps change power presets faster
-EPS Conduit: helps recharge system power faster
