I can not say as I have never been there myself.
Continue to pratice and play for the fun. Ask questions- seek answers and the rest will come from experience or the fine group of players in PvP I've come to know and respect, as they offer their wisdom.


Timing of powers use is key though, learn when to do something pro-actively.

(yes, Husanak - I still remember my lessons)

A lot of winning and losing is all down to BOff powers and how good you are at utilizing them.

For a cruiser, two copies of EPtS are a must. Since you've got the retrofit and have a LC and CM engineer use two copies of EPtS III, that gives you 100% uptime with the 30% damage resist. Build your other powers off of that, but it's a great core to start with.

That's exactly wrong. Your top engineering slots need to be used for heals. If you use two copies of EPtS3 you'll tank better, and you'll do basically nothing for your team.

Bad Jorf, Ur'Doin'it'Wrong sir.

We want dual EPTS3s and plasma for cruisers. No extends is very nice indeed.

Who said anything about healing? The OP said he wants to stay alive and in the fight... and 2x EPtS III is the best shield tank I know of.

It's not just you out there though. Maybe in a 1v1, but CnH and Arena are both team games. Keeping your teammates alive while having Tac Team + TSS + dual EPTS1 is enough, and you can put Tac Team + TSS on others.

It's all about force multiplication.

In my experiences very few players in the PuG environment are watching out for anyone but themselves. Besides, with saucer sep providing extra power to weapons and engines sitting there passing the heals around isn't making best use of the ship. If you want a heal boat a Star Cruiser with the extra Sci slot is a much better option IMO.

So because no one is doing it right no one should do it right?

Come on

And this is why you fail. lol

Pugs are terrible because of this attitude. I can get a bit surly sometimes when I pug which isn't good.

However sometimes I heal my teammates... and guess what they start doing the same. Sometimes just sometimes that's enough to... umm I don't know too wIn. lol

Cruisers that fly around with dual EPTS might as well go jump somewhere... I feel bad and hate to admit this but I warped my escort out of a pug last night... after flying around living through a good min of focus fire with only my own heals. Yes I was playing with a bunch of gready cruisers. How do you fly past 3 cruisers all at 100 hull and 100 shields and get NOTHING to help you out... this attitude right there. They where all busy trying to beam someone... and after I went down none of them lasted longer then about 10 seconds. Now I should have stuck it out and been nice and tried to give my teammates an education... but I was tiered and I was not in the mood for... hearing All I have is EPTS 3 DEM and RSP.

OP... if you continue too fly a cruiser don't listen to the EPTS 3 x 2 advice... its bad. If you are not keeping people around you alive you die. No cruisers don't have to be the main healer... but when I out heal them in an escort they ARE doing it wrong.
