In brief - teamwork. In general terms, if two hostiles target one friendly, the friendly might last a little while alone. When its one friendly against five the friendly does not last long. The way to stop the focus fire from simply obliterating one ship at a time the friendlies need to support each other and have a focus fire response of their own. There are skill combinations that work well when used as a team making them more valuable than if they are used randomly.

The advantage Klingons truly get with cloak is they can remain hidden while they pull their team together. Feds have to do it fast and in full view of their opponents. Different start conditions but the end result is the same - the organised team has the initiative.

Team up early and often. Stay together with your team. Figure out your roles in the team - who heals, who can bring the spike damage, Who can disrupt the enemy. Sometimes you can tell by looking at the ship (Hint: The escort is probably not your healer in this match, and the science ship is not there to spike through a enemies cruiser shields!).

I know it's not always easy. I suck at organizing my team. After my initial "Hi" and "I am your [blabla]" it's typically over in communciations. I hesitate to give brief infos in chat. Be better then me on that regard. Beyond that - support your team. Stick with them, give them healing when you can, focus fire on their targets, disrupt enemies harassing your allies with concentrated firepower.

For yourself only. Keep moving - don't be a stationary target. Keep your self-heals ready. Know when to use them. (Damage Resistance needs to come early, healing when you get the most out of it.) Keep balancing your shields.

1) Queue.
2) Collect rewards at end of match.

Everyone wins in PvP. I have a difficult time seeing a difference in the outcome beyond bragging rights.

Which are shortly forgotten anyhow. I remember how people perform during the match, than the end game score.

I often think, $^%$%^, it whats his/her name. This will suck.

If it's your first pvp, you'll probably find your BO skills are not that adequate.

a) Generally fedball right at the beginning and stay together tightly.
b) Do not full impulse to the first visible Klingon - chances are it's either a tank or a decoy... Or both.
c) Do not go outside the healing range of your healer (if there is one). If not, still don't go outside the healing range of other ships.
d) Never go it alone.
e) Focus fire on one target.
f) Normally go after escorts/Bird-of-Preys first.
g) If you have heals, heal those in need.
h) Always believe that there's a cloaked Klingon just behind you, waiting for you to make any mistake. Chances are, there is.
i) Never go looking for Klingons, they're cloaked. I know this is a duh comment, but it's surprising how many people don't realise this when zipping off to the other sides initial spawn point.

I do that all the time, especially if Santa Claws or Blackjack are involved.
