So Brandon confirmed that after you leave red alert and a less than one min cooldown you will be able to equipment swap and load out swap - all while in the pvp instance.

Going to make for some long matches!!

What do you guys think?

No, I don't think PvP will be effected. PvP maps are instanced.

"Basically, this system will allow you to swap between ships from any public/social (non-instanced) map - like Sector Space, Earth Space Dock, etc."

Unless I missed some secret gathering of the minds which often is the case.

No Brandon confirmed for me in today's dev blog that players will be able to hot swap equipment and load-out while in the pvp instance after a 'less than one minute' lock out.

Ship switch no - equipment yes

I don't see the issue... we should see many more 15 14 matches.

You get a match... realize you have the completely wrong load outs and switch to team look 2... sounds good to me.

Should be more interesting I think. As long as puggies aren't swapping back and forth every death... and really sow what if they do really. Again should be interesting I think.

Of course romulans will be able to battlecloak - hot swap - and be back in the battle in no time, but they were suffering and need a buff - so all good

i already swap equipment around pretty often after i die anyway, mostly what flavor elite shields im using, but also if the turn consoles are overkill and i could get away with some universals in their place or something.

these set build presets dont have mush value to me, i dont have 2 different ways i use a ship, i have 7 or 8 that shift around fluidly. not to mention the elephant in the room regarding this system, boff training. the most fundamental part of build adjusting, and this system basically pretends it doesn't exist. the whole thing is a waist of time as long as station powers are tied to boffs.
