Well said evil, I have had my share of the Klingon's handing my aft section to me. Notice also, how well did you Fed compatriots play together. This is a factor that grinds my gears. If the match starts and ships go off in all directions, odds are you're screwed. If at least 70 to 80% stay together and focus on taking objectives as a team, you'll probably have a close match.
Wait, tho our base shields and hull are weaker we can use an engi consol to boost them. We can buy one form the pvp vendor at BG lvl that effectivelty doubles the base shield str, and one that gives 30% resistance to all wpn types, tho not many run the latter. That was why we disliked the eps nerf as it meant we had to either continue running the one at 1.3 or sacrifice the shield bonus and use 2 of them.
Are you saying that you do not have access to these, if not i will cheack later to see if they are bind on pickup or equip and would be willing to sell them to fed players, tho they will not be cheap.
there are no consoles that doubble shiled str they were taken away in open beta
there is no 30% resist consoles only 15% consoles if you stack 3 of them you get arround 34.8% resists if u took the new skills.
or maybe im mistaken but i dont know what shiled bnus your on about, there is only the regen bonus consoles
