Escorts have fast firing cannons that break though my shields, so I want weapon that take down his shields and hull.
What you want is a weapon that will kill your opponent in one shot.
Covariants have been nerfed since Season 4. Borg Regeneratives are the most popular choice right now, combined with the set for the hull heal and multi-regenerative procs.
Second... Escort alpha strike? Yeah, this isnt new. If you don't know how to counter that by now, it's not the game's problem - it's yours. RSP, Tactical Team, Aceton Field... All of them mitigate this.
The bottom line is: No single weapon which can kill your opponent in one shot can, in any realm of fair play, be considered 'balanced'. And no sane developer in their right mind is ever going to grant you this wish.
Adapt or Die. Don't ask them to break game balance just because you have not worked out a counter that a great many people have.
