apparently something on the vesta was broke-

"The Vesta Console ability, Fermion Field, now correctly restores the Shields of nearby allies, instead of just yourself."


now i'll be twice as good at healing as i was before!

Yeah I saw the change too.

Very happy for it.

I always figured that the tooltip was a limitation intended to limit its effectiveness.

They both have 3 min cooldowns. (? I think 3 or 4)

Team Fortress has 10 second uptime instead of the 20 from the Fermion console.

Right? I had no idea it wasn't working before.

It was pretty bomb at doing it's job before. Now combining it with a TSS is going to be God Mode.
The first we heard of getting new PvP maps "soon" was in August of 2010. We're consistently told something will be coming with the "next" update. Absolutely nothing has come to PvP since launch.

I think it's finally time Cryptic stopped stringing us along, don't you?

What he said.

Before, you were limited to really only healing 2 people max at a time. Now you can do that and more with no GCD interference. TSS + Aux to SIF to one, HE + SciTeam to another, and then this to mop up the rest.

Combined with Scattering Field, it's lulz. But if you use this and, say, TSS and/or HE on a single person...
