I hate FBPIII as an escort. Really puts a crimp in my dps. I generally just stop firing as the damage to me is far worse than the damage to you as hull healing is not one of my strong points. FBPI is fine, as the dmg output is way to low to have any affect at all. I am curious as to whether sci team is the only counter to FBP?? i guess beam target aux could also work, but dont have a slot for it...
TS:Aux would work if you used it before FBP was activated, as I believe for it's duration it uses the amount of Aux when it was activated for it's effect. But I think completely shutting down Aux would shut down FBP as well.
As far as sci skills go i fly the origional carrier, i am not fond of losing so much to gain the new one...i was tired of bieng one of the only visable targets in PvP so i decided to invest in MES3 (Mask Energy Signature) for a LTC sci skill (back before it was un-nerfed) at first it was lame and just lowered my shields but kept me seen, yeah a waste i thought; then they re-vamped and re-invented it, now shields do not drop but i can cloak like any class ship can and get to about 0.9km of almost any ship, add in the cmdr skill of GW3 and you have the makings of a good first strike carrier on alot of levels mind you the BG carrier has a total of 6 sci skill slots makes it a sci BO dream boat BTW MES2 can be almost as useful, i have tested with a friend to about 6km with max aux power.
Whatever happened to polarize hull?
It counters tractor beams and buffs the hull (rumor it also buffs your shield).
I find tachyon beam 2 useful with gravity well or tyken rift.
Crank up AUX, fire Tachyon beam 2, target engines fire all disruptors, fire gravity well. Then circle around firing everything you got and High Yield torpedo (or what its called.).
Gravity well is really great when you kill their shields first, and reduce their engine power.
Feedback Pulse, Gravity Well, and Photonic Shockwave (which is modified by deflector dish) are all very good powers. Personally, as a healer, I run FBP or maybe Gravity Well, though a popular combo with Gravity Well is tractor beam or tractor beam repulsors.
