*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.

this happens in every game. don't know how it's any different. even if the best skill was 5% better than others people would gravitate towards them, thats just how it works.

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.

Or, you know, just read and follow the Basic Guide to Space PvP, stickied at the top of the PVP forum.

And get your friends and team members to read it, too.

Well, the guide doesn't advertise me, nor is it selling anything. So what's your point?

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.

When they finally fix FBP to reflect cannons I can see most Klingons abondoning it.

I fly an Escort and if I can reflect 1 second of the cannon fire directed at me from ONE Bop, it will instagank it.

I was initially against this fix, now I eagerly await it.

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 ?
