Yeah, if only I didn't have to keep mashing the "all power to forward shields" button as of course that's where my dps comes from You're right, I should send a little more power to shields - I think I'm on about 90/50 at the moment and maybe it's time to dig out some shield skills.

Would almost be nice actually if you could set AI on your bridge crew so that you could select "When forward shields below 25% transfer emergency power to shields" or something like that.

Correct me if I'm wrong but was there not a better way in SC to have more power automatically routed to the forward facing shields?

That's what I was thinking entering this thread. My hopes are dashed at the feet of false advertising...

Slowly cruising down the boulevard in your big ol' 55 Chevy while listening to "Eddie and the Cruisers" can be pleasurable...

One can even look for "Escorts".

Im a cruiser too. I turn slow. And can just hang around.......and around.........and around in a fire fight. I can sometimes have 5 ships hitting me with everything they've got in PvP for up to 15 seconds before I go pop.....if I even do.

I may turn slow, but I can seriously tank the daylights out of a PvP scenario. And my DPS isnt too shabby either. I usually rank near the top if not number one on damage in most groups I try and play in.

Its not just you, and its not just escorts.

One side of my T2 Cruiser's shield can sometimes be completely obliterated in a single volley. Luckily I am such a good-looking, incredible pilot and I have groovy Shield-and-Hull-related skillz to fall back on.


(*whispers*) My suspicion is that a patch upgraded something somewhere for the Klingies.

Roll a tactical officer and focus on science ships. Don't waste your time on escorts. Sure you have to fly the ugly ball ship for a while, but you'll be happier in the end.

Well in truth its been awhile. I havent tried PvP since tier 2. Im tier 4 now. But back then I was having no trouble at all. Hardly ever exploded.

If you use every trick you have you can actually survive extremely well in a cruiser no problem. Yea you get popped occasionally, when you have 6 ships firing at you.

But I could have two ships on me indefinitely and they could not destroy me at all. I had a lot of Klingons begin firing at me for awhile, and then give up and move to another ship because it wasnt going to happen with me. The right shield powers go a long way on a cruiser.
