So we have Fleet Eng and Sci consoles. If they add another Fleet location that has Fleet Tac consoles it only makes since that they would have Acc, CRTH, CRHD modifiers as these are the 3 Tac abilities. Just like the Eng has Power transfer, Hull points and Turn, If these come about what do you think it will do to game balance in PVE and PVP?
Well the current fleet Eng consoles have made the old ones obsolete. I could perhaps see Tac consoles that are say +28 Phaser damage + 2.5% bonus damage to beams or something like that. Or they might be Tac consoles that add additional Procs. But seeing that they added Fleet versions of the other 2 types it seem only a matter of time before Fleet Tac consoles arrive.
It'll be interesting what they do if they do come.
They ignored fleet field gens presumably because they'd be too op and everyone would use them exclusively.
Then for mine consoles they only released the 3 that people care about in neuts, monos and RCSs. Completely ignoring the fact that they could have also made far superior versions of consoles that people ignore atm and made them actually useful again
+weapons power console that gives weapons drain buff
+aux power booster that gives gives +x to all sci skills
+shield power console that buffs innate shield resilience (bleed through)
+engine power console that improves ships inerta and/or turn rate
Emergency force field generators that give +x% innate hull repair rate and shield regen rate boost based on crew alive levels (Think Tal Shiar 2 piece bonus but better)
EPS that gives bonus to insulators and flow caps
SIF generators that boost hull HP and sub system repair skills
If energy/damage specific ones come out that'd be neat. If only weapon specific ones come, they're acknowledging like with the field gens that the system is broken and would be too OP.
Either way will be interesting seeing what the bonus buffs will be.

28% to Specific Energy 5% to all Torpedoes
28% to Specific Torpedo 5% to all Energy
And a 15% All Energy, All Torpedoes
Numbers are a complete guess.
I was once DKnight1000, apparently I had taken my own name so now I'm DKnight0001. If I ask you a question it is not an insult but a genuine attempt to understand why. When I insult you I won't be discreet about it, I will be precise and to the point stupid.
