what counters this?

i know engineering team will repair a down subsystem, but what acutally counters this?

science team used to a long time ago.

does anything counter it now?

I thought Engineering Team cleared it completely?

I've been using ET for it now, I think it's fully clearing it? Or perhaps I'm just not paying enough attention.

ET only clears the currently affected subsystem. ie vm shuts off aux ET fixes aux wait a couple VM shuts down Engines = you **** outta luck

engineering team only restores any downed systems from viral matrix. nothing actually removes VM from you. it used to be science team did, then engineering team did. now neither do. i want to know why this is anymore, and what can counter it.

vm plus those doffs are insane.

Does this mean I can use my Sci again without feeling like a total liability?

Just use an MVAM instead. VM1 and TBR1 on mine baby.

vm3 and vm1. so the mvam or carrier would be perfect for this.

I always thought that Engineering Team never did more than clear the subsystem disables. It's basically a "soft counter". I don't know if ET cancels out all disables during its 5 second duration, though.

does it work the same way weapons do? meaning there is a chance it could miss its target?

I'm thinking TBR 3, 2x VM 1, 2x TSS 2, HE 1 + SciTeam 1 on a 3 Cannon + 3 Turret RSV with Phasers. Yay subsystem disables!
