Whatever happened, the ability should not be enabled once you are dead. I bet it's another client - server glitch, similar to counting a death 2 times (score 15-16) or when you take damage and heal and you stop at hull 0, then go up.

Borticus the tipler Cylinder has a little problem, it's not OP, it's balanced and so on.
BUT if activated just a moment before death (in pvp a moment before death = 20% hull), you die because there are still enemy cannon or torpedo shots that are reaching your ship, but after dying you rewind time and resurrect.
It's very nice but the kill is counted like you really died, so after resurrection you are still at the center of the map, still at 20% hull and if you die a second time the kill is counted again.
Suggested fix for Borticus: rewind also the kill counter when resurrecting using this ability.
Absolutely hilarious getting p2w except its a loss when used badly. I find this extremely amusing.
So... the Tipler Cylinder is not a big, red Panic button, eh?
I say, good.
There are plenty of other Last Ditch powers available. Use one of those before kicking off the Tipler and it might work out pretty good.
