Counter Strike could still use some buffs

I saw another user mention that “Counter Strike functions the same as Vindictive Flame mechanically,” which made me think about how most people invest a good amount of points in VF because it gives a valuable Total Speed bonus, but you very rarely see people use CS.

Even when you have +5 to Soldier skills, most people probably skip even the base point because the damage it deals is negligible and the extra Energy tax can be a pain.

I think this skill could use something extra. The flavor text mentions you “enter a state of intense readiness,” perhaps it could give you some Speed bonuses for a few seconds after it goes off, or increase your DA.
