A bug that involved Romulan Liberated Borg captains and their skills once they chose an ally
Some characters were stuck in a loading screen with a "Server Not Responding" message
I use APD on my VoQuv and I'm sure it works that way. IE, if I use APD I get a 15s APD buff listed and all 3 enemy frigates attacking me get a small red tactical debuff cursor. I have no other attack pattern skills.
How can you be sure it actually debuffs the armor resistance of your enemy ? I mean...i need to test it during weekend. Seems odd to me. You see the icon on them, but that doesnt mean their armor resistance is debuffed. It would also produce TWO APD icons on my enemy, which i have never seen tbh.
Imagine a 1v1 situation
APB and APD have same numerical values on same rank
If one used APD and the other APB, the APD would be clearly superior. My understanding of that abiltiy is that one is resistance debuff, and the other resistance buff...not that one is both at once !
I've never explicitly tested it but my plasma HYT is clearly benefitting from a -resist debuff on the enemy ship when I'm APDing.
APD is definitely both at once. The problem with APD is that the enemy has to attack the APD buffed ship. So it has problems in a team setting, like in PVP - the ship i'm attacking frequently isnt targeting me, and I don't even WANT it to target me. And if you disable the enemy weapons in some manner the APD buff will expire, while APB will not. APB also has the -stealth debuff which is occasionally useful.
PS, APD is definitely cast on yourself, not on the enemy ship.
APD used to be targeting only allies, but now you can use it on yourself, too. And it should work as DeadlyShoe explains - buff yourself or the ally for a resistance buff, and enemies attacking the APD target suffer a resistance debuff.
