It seems too.

Now I pose a question what if you have a G15 and made a macro the distributed power to each facing at the same time, not a macro that spams distribute all but a macro that spams each facing.

If you wanted to use manually putting power to a facing as an alternative to TT, it would need to be a toggle. So in an escort on an attack run you'd shift power forward, or a broadsiding cruiser would shift power to port or starboard.

It's really not practical to add 4 more keybinds to space PvP at this point. Science ships in particular are pushing the "too many buttons" envelope enough that it's about to explode. And that would just be messy.

I know I have a key set to spam the hell out of distribute power to all shield facings in my escort, when i am in a match I never turn it off, matter of fact I also have one for just the foreward shield facing that I also turn on for attack runs.

I'd really be interested in seeing the effect Tactical Team has on Shuttle Only PVP.

In fact I think a real push for shuttle only PVP might be just the thing PVP in this game needs, due to the development team's track record with the PVP aspects of this game.

I am pretty sure activating one overrides the other... would likely not work that well... but it would be something interesting to test. lol

I wasn't really convinced by its effects in gameplay, but I didn't use it that often. It might be because in Shuttle PvP, it's really hard to focus the team on one facing anyway due to the speed and maneuverability of all ships involved.
But at the same time, no one really has shield heals or resistance buffs to recover the shields or extend the shield's lifetime.

Ugh, I'm gonna have to be the party pooper and say I don't agree with a nerf.

But I do see everyone's point with a cruiser and/or sci using this, but I think tacs in escorts need this ability.

Maybe nerf it for sci and eng and make it a bonus for Tacs?

Edit: i dunno, I just never thought of Tacs in escorts much of a threat until they beefed up tt. Personally, I think all calls for nerf needs to stop except for maybe FaW (but personally, I don't even find FaW to be that bad and I don't even use it).

That's because all the decent players capable of using it don't, anymore.

As a test I found a very strong faw and crf build with my escort. I have stopped using it though.

Now if only tt could stack hull resists on the side being attacked. In other words hull resists work like shields.
