Something the feds can't whine about ingame as being unfair or under powered in comparison to the KDF set abilities.
This already making my head swirl with ideas of B'rel-R concpets
Though I question the usefulness of a Stealth Bomber in a setting where shields are always up?
I'm not sure how I feel about this changes.
For PuGs I don't think it's really an improvement on how it works now, to be fair i think stacking aegis and %10 from a coveriant shield is a bit much. That said I guess it could allow a carrier to "hide" the few ships on the KDF side who don't cloak (Nausican, Gorn? <- haven't really looked at these, other carriers). While I appreciate a team oriented set piece I do wish were more offensive in nature and perhaps a bit PuG player friendly.
I can't really see where hiding the fleet other than at the start is of much value. But, I can see where the P2W venting gases work w/this to add a fog of war value to the fight. I guess it's up to those who premake their teams to be creative while testing this out as I don't think PuGs can make it shine.
