Just wanted to say that I'd never really tried to use the spacebar bind, until I found a build on the forums that called for it. Your website was where I got the bind file, and it works awesomely!

You can also try the bind from this post. It has some additions to the spacebar bind

That looks nice. The thing is, I do Ground PvP, and mostly PvE in space, so clicking on heals for my team / self is working pretty well for now. I do like the switch of the F buttons - much more intuitive!

I noticed that your builds use the Borg Engines. Have you accounted for the fact that the Borg console no longer counts towards the 2-set bonus?

I don't want to speak on the OP's behalf, but I'd imagine he's using them because the Deflector + Engines are the better of the possible two-piece combos. Plus the Borg console is just great to run on its own.

The builds use borg engine+deflector to get the 2-part bonus.

It is true that the difference between the 2-part borg set and other combinations has decreased with the borg set changes, but I think that it is still the easiest combination to fly for beginners because of the built-in heal. (And you can get the borg engine+deflector a bit earlier in the rep system than other set items.)

Sorry, I meant the 3-set bonus in the above post. I just got the impression from some players that since you can no longer get the 3-set whilst not having to use the Borg shield, that its better to aim for a Maco/Omega/Aegis 3-set bonus, and keep the Borg engine handy for sector space. Is this the wrong approach?

I don't myself think 3 piece maco or omega is all that great for pvp. There good don't get me wrong there just not uber PvP sets. Omega 2 piece is nice but hardly game changing. The maco shield everyone agrees is fantastic the 2 piece bonus however is junk... and the 3 piece isn't much better.

Aegis is more usable then many give it credit for yes... however it is still far from the best shield option.

Right now for a new player coming in I would suggest the following low cost setups...

1) Borg 2 piece + GOOD resistant shield. The Tier 4 fleet shield would be killer... the lower tier fleet shield is also great... and worst case a good MK XII shield is not a bad option either to be honest, they are inexpensive and you can grab one with mods that work for your build.

2) Aegis 2 Piece + GOOD resistant shield. "Ditto" You gain +10 defense... if you have a maco shield aegis 2 + maco is a great option. Its also an option that gives you a Hyper Impulse engine which used to be the gold standard of Escort players for a reason.

3) 3 Piece Aegis... best if your build is heavy on shield heals... as being a Cov shield you can't really rely on regen to fill it ... the 3 piece bonus can be a good extra bit of defense.

4) Forget completely about set bonuses... and get a good Positron deflector (this will boost shield systems and emitters... as well as Structural integrity SIF) Plenty of good ones on the exchange for low cost.... Get a good Engine... Hyper Impulse on that escort, something with SPD and TURN. Then again find yourself a good resistant shield... and your good.

New players place way to much importance on the sets imo... frankly If 95% of people that are new to Pvp would take there silly STF sets off and set themselves up ala option 4... they would do far far better.
When the messenger comes to appropriate your profits ... kill the messenger.

There are definitely some great non-set deflectors out there. I think my Engie has a Positron with Shield Systems/Emitters (it's kinda cray that you can directly boost Systems and Emitters works wonders too). For certain roles I'd say it outperforms some of the set equipment
