6.) Some very good skills to look into are:
*Reverse shield polarity (countered mainly by Tykens Rift and Energy Siphons)
*Viral Matrix (countered by Attack pattern omega, science team, and if you fast enough reverse shield polarity)
*Tykens Rift (countered by simply moving away from the rift, but this can be hindered if you are hit by two layers using a tykens rift and gravity well)
*Subnuc Beam (no real counter, but if you use it be prepared to be the main target alot more)
*Jam Sensors & Scramble Sensors (countered by using science team on yourself)
The problem is that this is the loadout for 99% of ALL ships on either side that I see in PvP.
It's sad that a few powers so far outshine the others.
The difference is most likely more than 5 %, and if it happens in every game doesn't mean it has to happen in this one, too. Or rather, it doesn't have to stay that way.
do you know how human nature works? People will always gravitate towards the better of two things, be it skills, food, nations, or whatever. there is no way to prevent this from happening. trying to prevent it is like pushing water uphill, without anything to carry it with.
The fix will just make it so, everyone will use FBP. Even those who arent now, will use it. Cause people value your effectiveness in pvp by dmg done, and its free dmg with one click. Do you not see the pattern, where the most popular BO skills are just click and forget ?
