I did some (quite limited) testing in a 1v1+photonics and could not reproduce the issue.
Yes, no sci capt and still hititng cloaked ships.

We're looking into the FAW-hitting-cloaked part of the issue now. Thanks for the head's up.

It would be nice if FAW were to do the "phaser sweep" used in Nemesis if it has no visible targets.

Now there's an interesting idea.

Every time I see that saucer ram, I always think how much it would hurt to be rammed by a pointy Prometheus class. OUCH.

that could be an interesting power besides FAW, kinda like one of those science shockwave abilities only with range 10 and next to no damage dealt, just a decloaking effect.

FAW pretty much already does that right now, because as of today Fark acknowledged they are still working on the decloaking ship problem.

the difference is it would have a duration of 1, not 10 and would deal basically no damage to anyone, and maybe it should not hit spam at all. FAW is a damage dealing skill that has great spam killing abilities, and is pretty nice when theirs just 1 target around too.

FAW is a spam clearing skill that has (had?) the potential to deal incredible damage. It most certainly should be able to hit spam but shouldn't be so out of wack against a single target. I love the cone attack idea though.
