Okay, so since Cryptic's decided to make the BoP a suicide sled with their 'update' to Aux power, and since waiting until next decade to play again probably won't work (never has for anyone else, I don't see this changing).
Time to go full ******. That is, forgetting what a PITA drain builds with aceton are, forgetting ideas of playing a clean game and just abusing the **** out of the gear available to make a ship that makes people throw things at their screen.
so I need suggestions. What should I use to go full ******? (aceton is an obvious start, need more bad ideas!)
"when you're out of Birds of Prey, you're out of ships."
Look into Vanilla PvP if you're tired of the endless pursuit of grind, utterly unbalanced selections of geardo-inspired traits, and generally unbalanced and careless 'development' made mostly to turn this game into a second job.
Not AUX per se, only the specific Boff ability Emergency Power to Aux.
It's a bug that was known on Tribble.

I am in the same situation I usually am in a BOP, or battlecruiser, but since EPTA bug my Tac is back in my JHAS I am bored of using already, and my eng is in a Fleet Voquv drain cheese build. I can share the drain build here, can be used on regular voquv, or adapted to Karfi. Eng or sci works best but tac could be used to finish drained targets faster maybe.
my eng is nearly unkillable in this unless subnucced and focused on, even then sometimes its not enough. It also can do some shield stripping which is a little easier on targets that are drained.
Spec should be like a regular tank main thing is max flow capacitors.
Lt Cmdr Tac- TT1, TT2, TSSS3
Lt Cmdr Eng- EPTA1, Aux2SIF1, EPTS3
Cmdr Sci- Tractor1, HE2, TSS3, ES3
Lt Sci- Tractor1, Tykens 1 (or bump the tykens1 up to 2 and tss3 down to 2 if you want more drain or cant get tss3)
