You cannot press your power buttons in a row and have them all turn on.
I spend more time in combat worrying about if my powers actually turned on than whether I'm fighting well or not. A lot of times I'll fire my torp after clicking HYT and realizing it never turned on.
Another example; I have HYT, CRF, Tact Team and APO I listed from hotkeys 1-4. If you click 1, 2, 3, 4 right in a row in a reasonable time, you'd be lucky to get two of powers to turn on. Further, if I click the #1 and then spam #2 for the second power, I'd be lucky if it turns on after the 3rd click.
There may be some kind of delay timer in place to keep from turning on multiple powers to quickly, but this is absolutely ridiculous and honestly just makes PvP much less fun.
I want to fight not spend the whole time worrying about whether my powers are on!
Thanks for posting this. Please make a copy and put it into the bug forum, maybe a DEV will see it there. This is a real problem. We're fighting our hotkeys as well as other ships. Feels like a cheap ass interface, very cheap.
