So have I... pre-LoR. I was in a match with him once or twice since, and it seemed like he was using Equip. Tech. SO I was wondering if even one of the most prolific users of Fab wasn't using it, if it was worth it anymore.
I did not, since I've been leveling up Romulan and Klingon Tacs. But that is good to know.
Oh he's using it alright. After I saw that I was up against him and his fleet, I decided to go operative during this past Sunday's match. He set up camp on the bridge and had the distinction of being the only player that didn't die the entire match. So fabrication specialist still works well, at the very least in a prebuilt team setting. Though I too have seen him in the equp tech kit more often. He'd probably be able to give you a better idea of what kit to use when.
