Since then I went ahead and re-got myself science team 1 to stop the nonsense but I haven't been hit with the thing again..
If you were in combat with it, it was Jam Sensors. If you weren't was probarbly MES.

Jam sensor for sure... did you see tiny stars orbiting your ship? Don't worry, it wears off quickly!

I've seen a few ships use it and frankly it surprised me how effective it is. Makes you wonder what the point was in getting ships with a cloaking device.

I wonder if you can still cap with it switched on.

Better yet, what is the +Stealth value that MES is giving you?
Aux is at 50. Stealth is +4000-ish.

Just tried MES2 out in PvP and it works almost as well as cloak. I'm now using my Assault Cruiser as if it was a Galaxy-X, just making sure not to get too close before launching the surprise attack.

MES is back! Yay!

The last time it was effective and useful was Closed Beta.. When Open Beta started it was nerfed.. Until Season 2! Yay!

MES, unlike cloak is mostly based off gear rather than power.

To improve MES you need to improve your Sensor Array Skill by using Multi-Spectral Consoles (+Sensor Array), Tachyon Deflectors (more +SA), and training the Sensor Array Captain skill.
