The lack of beta testing at the higher levels is really starting to show. Some T5 battles will just run on and on with no apparent end, because the players involved are so absurdly difficult to kill. Other times, even the sturdiest ships will be mowed down in just a few seconds, by just a single enemy. I am not exaggerating, I have seen both of these events happen just yesterday.
On one hand I just read a thread complaining that Carriers are near invincible. I might be the very person they are complaining about, as I play my carrier in favor of high survivability.
On the other hand, just yesterday thre were a few times where a single Escort dropped me from full hull and shields to dead in about 3 seconds flat.
It is entirely a matter of your playstyle and how you have built yourself.
I expect to see a major rebalancing patch in the coming weeks, and everyone will feel the nerf bat. Not just one ship type, or one faction, or one power stacking exploit. A lot of weapons, skills and abilities need to be taken down a notch.
