The most common thing I see in pvp, fed-side, is escorts running into combat first....big mistake.

Coordination, let the cruisers enter first and create a buffer and distraction, they can handle it with science ships, let their hulls and shields absorb the klingon alpha strikes (which is extremely easy btw)

Then your escorts fly in coordinated, targetting weakest to strongest focus fire, the escorts flying together.

Thats just one of many possible scenarios I'd figure I would only present the most basic.

In short mnay escort tacs have this drive to be the first on the firing line, they often are the first piece of debris.
Great advice!

Although, in my situation, both gear, skill setup and tactics contributed to my demise. I put a lot of what one of the other posters suggested and I can already see a significant change; I'm surviving much longer than before and I'm doing much more damage output.

The more advice, the better!
