You can rotate between the two every 15 secs giving you 100% uptime as long as no one nukes you. That 40% of your BO abilities committed to defeating tractors which is kinda crazy considering its countering one free hangar bay on a ship which gives up nothing for it if they fly the new light carrier
Just 2x Omega + 1 Polarize will basically do the trick on close to full coverage.

I'd say there is so much tractor spam going on in the queues as of late, that 2x omega + polarize isnt overdoing it

if your perma tractored, 45 secs into the fight, both omega and polarize will be on cd. A second polarize will be coming off cd. Of course, you still should have an evasive ready to fire up I suppose, but that isnt quite the same as immunity.

Of course, 45 secs later, you've usually already killed the offender...

You really want the secret to slowing down a Bug ship?

Tractor beams alone aren't the only way....

Chonoton Torpedoes/Mines + Advanced Danubes can make any escort's day painful. Long as 3x Chrono Procs stack up on the Escort he'll be dead in the water till one of the procs fall off.

aux disable shuts down polarizes tb immunity.

use vm to incur this disable on your target for the inter omega window


good bug ship captains will notice and adjust.. but its something

target aux subsytem is also possible
