You are using an absurd console that have not much impact on npc on the overall outcome.
That is, and meaning, that you defend something that is absurd for the generality of your gameplay which this console hardly affect.

Now...
Sinking down to calling people "babies" and "go cry me a river"
Chidlish.

An MMO where the pvp'ers get ignored?
Oh come on.
No matter how small our little community is...
PVP IS PART OF THE GAMEPLAY
The Devs play it also....
No offense intended, but if the Devs actually thought PVP was part of the gameplay, they would have at very least given a new pvp map since 2010, as it stands other than nerfs they have ignored it since launch. At most its just there as a glorified duel system. No status rewards, not really effective for leveling, no sort of competitive ladder of any nature, no titles.

As is they choose to ignore it, my guess is its not profitable for them to bother with, i mean they just about totally dropped ship production for the KDF (and blamed them for that), have a rather slim line up for the Romulans (wtf are the science ships? after the KDF complained so much about it you would have thought they remembered it....).

So probably, pvp is last on their list to even look at, its either not profitable, they are too afraid, or they had to just chop something off at the knees because they are overloaded.

Answer me this:

How do you effectively, and consistently, counter this console? What abilities, traits, combos, etc, can you use, to keep this console from seeming as powerful as 'PvPers are whining about'?

If PvPers aren't doing as you say, namely 'coming up with new builds, new tactics, and actually THINK for once', then perhaps you can lend your mind to the 'think tank' to help everyone learn how to effectively counter it.

I do mean it, because if you can answer that question to the point that few to no one would disagree, I can assure you PvPers wouldn't 'whine' about it anymore.

I recently bought the Subspace Integration Circuit. I proudly presented it to my CEO (an extremely knowledgeable PVP-er), and he basically said he'd never fit any such consoles that has a 3 min CD. He's probably right; but I'm loving it anyway.

As for PvP, while I don't engage in it myself, I find it hard to imagine you can really rely on an ability with such a long cooldown.

First of all, was it really necessary to necro the thread?

Second, in response to the second paragraph: If you have a premade team capable of cloaking all its ships, you could theoretically cloak, fire it off, blast your opponent to bits before anyone knows what happened, then recloak and wait the 3 minutes.

Of course, if you were coordinated enough, you might not need the SIC for that kind of maneuver - and odds are your opponents would quit instead of waiting 3 minutes for you to reappear.
