This is one of the most annoying p2w units in the game hands down. Teams that run multiple copies and Dbags that install them on there escorts are the most ridiculous type of lame. I would rather face a skilled Klingon team all loaded with p2w then have to endure a terrible fed team spamming this junk. Having to carry 2x as many sci teams as should be needed is complete BS.
Of course like most of the 5 man gimmick plays good teams still beat them like red headed semi siblings. Fortunately I can only think of a handful of "teams" that use this one as a crutch. Sadly if said teams would simply practice timing there skills / heals and dps properly instead of when everyone should hit there AMS button they wouldn't need the crutch.
but takes great skill to overcome (alhtough I love shooting my teammates ).
Is this ruining PVP? Is it something we really want in the game?
I wouldnt say AMS is runining the game its being able to put it on any ship that is Runining the game. Same with all the P2w stuff imo. Wait until they make it so you can run any consoles from either side... Then that might be the end of PVP for a lot of people.... People runing around with AMS and theta.. YAY .
