Why do i take so much damage when I hit evasive in my escort??
Is this intentional, I mean its suppose to buff my defense but when i see people hitting it they either get away or get killed.
I tried many times with my shield at maximum and it just rip my shield appart if am getting hit at the same time.

I think it's because most people dont use it until they're about to die...

A better question is why ships DO so much more damage while using evasie manuevers...there's a mystery.

See Hilberts guide

http://denkbassin.de/sto/

I use a version of this build in the guide

I have 80 defence, without evasive, I am silly tanky with this build and given I have no spacial awareness and don't know which way I am pointing or firing most of the time I do pretty good damage

You aren't using the combination of Evasives and Ramming Speed try to get that extra little bit of speed boost, are you? Because that could be the problem right there. Otherwise I suspect it's as mai has suggested. Maybe you are waiting too long to use it, or there is just too much incoming focus fire.

As i said I tried many times with full shield and they go down very fast, faster than just moving at normal speed.
Am going to try again tonight, just to see.

Maybe you suffered a breakdown, then blew up....oh wait that's in Star Fleet Battles/Star Fleet Command.

Did you get shockwaved? People like to shockwave when the target pops evasive.

Iíve got a question as this happens to me.

When hitting evasive and diverting power to engines has anyone experienced some sort of power drain where most systems seem drop to minimal power for a number of seconds?

I have noticed this happen a few times when taking fire and I think it kills my shield resists and I go pop.
I donít think itís a result of any science powers such as rift or target subsystems.
