Right now, there are a lot of Feds who "took their time" leveling up since release, and are only now reaching RA PvP after two months of PvE. They might have some PvP missions and dailies, and are thus queuing up to fulfill those rather than play competitively. Also they may not be used to fighting against hardcore Klingons (and you guys do scare me) or who have done PvP the whole time, and are PUG'ing with the few remaining Fed PvP'ers. (I think most of the Fed's end up with PUG and can't get a team because the queues are so long and/or most of our friends/fleet have ditched STO.)

So here's a bump for your thread. Please read OP.

And in reference to Steve -- the comment on continuing on full impluse, if there is a team-mate that you *might* be able to save.

Tough, and I will make the wrong call likely as often as the right one - however. Look at the tactical situation. If you can 'save' a ship when it is 4 klinks to 3 feds (and you are just coming into the fight) then at least you get a break even situation for a bit. Might be enough to turn the tide, so I say go for it. Try to remember to pop a weapon battery though, as soon as you drop from full impluse. least get SOME power on-line !

If it is 4 vs 1 (or 2) and one is near the warp core blossom point, then no - you are better to turn out of the fight, regroup with them when they respawn, and start two ships fresh. Save your ship so you can heal up, and get some of the timers back to zero. Likely you used them all up before you went boom anyway.

Again, tough call, and you will likely get it wrong as much as get it right. What is helpful - if you team up SOMEONE pick a rally point if things go bad. So the team knows where to go back to after the respawn and regroup.

I always go into combat targeting a team mate so that I can focus fire on their target (on the off chance someone has called a target before hand I'll do that). Once someone extends shields to it or they pop some immunity buff I flail tab around hoping to get on a good secondary target. Sometimes I realize too late that they aren't a good secondary target.

Sometimes at Full Impulse I'm so intently watching my next objective that I don't notice the 2-3 other Klingons just to my right who most certainly notice me.

Also, when I'm returning to a combat situation (usually after a respawn -_-) I'm good about dropping to thrusters at about 14-15km to allow my power setting to recover. However, when I see another team mate at 30-40% I want to get in there and drop an Engineering Team on them so do I push it further and sacrifice my power levels to drop it on them or do I watch their hull get eaten away before ultimately exploding at 10.1km? If I get in there and assist them with that much hull gone usually they are done for anyway and now I'm a sitting duck waiting for my power to increase.

I know that the Klingons are going to decloak behind me and unload but if they are slightly off screen I can't Target Nearest Enemy or even tab to them, I have to manually select them which diverts my attention from the other issues of keeping myself alive (I don't suppose anyone knows of a way to bind camera panning left or right to the left and right arrows, by the way?).

As a Bird of Prey Klingon, I find that with the narrow targeting arcs (which I'm not complaining about at all) sometimes I think I'm aiming right but when I hit the button to center camera I find that I'm actually aiming just outside of the arc. If I zoom in too much I can't see the pew pew canon fire but if I zoom in too much I miss important stuff and reduce the possibility of targeting the enemy behind me just off screen.

For either side I'm not a leader. If someone else doesn't form up I generally don't start sending out invites. Part of it is that even when I grasp the concept of just what needs to be done I still have mechanical issues with executing. All this time and I still hit the wrong buttons and put the wrong abilities on cool down at the wrong times.

Ouch. These are just some of the issues I'm having. I'm sure more will come to me later, lol.
Too many buttons to press, that's often my problem.

Maybe I should invest in a touch monitor?

It just means that you type without relying on seeing the keyboard (no hunting and pecking in this game). I can do it fairly well myself, but with so much going on and bouncing around from mouse to controls I sometimes... miss, lol.

Would be cool as hell for the immersion aspect of it though if we had touch monitors. XD

Just look around, man... You can single handle a group of 5 attack ships (even if they are +5 towards you),
in any PvE instance, Not to mention, you are a FED-Care-Bear and as per script (well, movie script), you are
they one, that will always win the fight. Because this are the RULES for any StarTrek movie!

One whoot never heard of it, why not use SCI-Team or ENG-Team, it suits me very well, if I'm
outnumbered in PvE. Na, RSP is BAD, don't use it! ONLY bad Fed-Cear-Bears are using this nasty little
skill Be a good Fed-Care-Bear and take my cannon fire, keep in mind, as per rule 1, Federation
ALWAYS wins, in the movies!

Oh, I make a guess... "we need MORE auto-fire in space" and now combine this with "I have set my target
system to -default-, resulting in the SCI-Team you want for you to be applied to the target....

As a Fed-Care-Bear, leave the options as they are, they are GOOD for you and will help you to single handle
an entire attack fleet (in PvE).

No, No, No, NO, it is NOT ok, to change targets! ALWAYS fire at the BIG HUGH cruiser or carrier and ignore
me in my wee little turtle neck raptor... I promise, I will be gentle

But, they might shoot at the me later (and ya mate, we DO so) - I might need the heal for myself!
So, Fed-Care-Bear, don't heal other, keep heals ALYWAYS to your self !

I ain't a KLING! and If you can see me de-cloaking.. please accept my apologize, but scramble must have
