I think this is the best place for it... If not, please move.
Anyway. Tactical consoles are BOOOORING. All of them are damage bonuses. There's no choice there, no decisions to make. Just slot in the appropriate damage, and go. What's the point?
Why not put in some interesting effects as consoles? What if, for instance, we had a console that boosted the Proc chance of your weapons' special by 5 or 10%? Or one that boosted just your crit chance? Or just your crit severity? Heck, I guarantee almost everyone in a cruiser would shell out for a console that mitigated power drain on multiple weapon firings.
It gives us a lot more options, and many, many more viable builds, like an energy-killer that doesn't do much damage with their polarons, but has a 30-40% chance to drain your power.
