i dont think you supposed to solo alpha a cruiser =p it would be kinda OP . have you tried coordinating your alphas with a friend ?, though tbh , if i get hit by an alpha my reverse shield polaritey gives 10 vital secs to recover

the trick with alphaing with BO3 and a duel beam bank is to fire off all the buffs before you decloak EXCEPT BO3, then decloak, fire everything, THEN hit BO3. after the DBB has cycled once, the shield facing will be down and the BO3 will hit hull directly, it times itself perfectly. good time to hit with torps too. leading off when you decloak with a BO drained energy your cannons needed and basically sabotages your alpha, never lead off with BO, fire it last.

My strategy is usually to just pop a weapons bat after leading off with BO3 to compensate for the power loss. If it's on cool down, I just let my EPS console regain my power levels.
