So I've been messing around with putting a DBB on the front of my BoP, with Beam Overload II to help me take down shields.
I love it so far, but randomly, my beams will go offline. Now, I know that's an intended effect of BO (though I thought they never got that working), but when do the beams come back online? I've gone entire Salvage Op PvP matches where my beams went down in the first fight, and never came back. Switching them out out of combat doesn't do anything, they still appeared grayed out. Switching which hardpoint it's on makes it 'light up' again, but it doesn't fire.
I'm maxed in Starship Subsystem Repair, and have tried using EngTeam to bring it back. Any ideas?
When you activate the power, wait about 2-4 seconds before firing a beam weapon. When I do this with my dual beam banks, I can use BO an entire mission without it messing up. Sure the wait sucks, but it doesn't bug as often.
Anytime I use a beam within 1-2 seconds after activating the power, I seem to lose the beam to the bug after my first or second use of it.
