A lot of people just cannot get the hang of Escorts, IME. They try to fly them like they would a Cruiser or Science Vessel and just get blown out of the sky over and over, and that leads to frustration. They expect them to be durable like the other 2 classes are. If you can get the hang of the swoop in, shoot-em-up, and swoop back out thing then Escorts can be awesome, though.
