But that only works for infected, and more or less KA. The cure is a dmg run more than the other 2, and sadly most PUG's i encountered can't deliver that dmg. If the guy in the escort can't take out 3 raptors before they reach the kang...than no amount of healing can save the kang. And since tanking becomes irrelevant I'm pretty much useless in my cruiser.
Cure Elite is ironically the reason for my switching to science.
If people can't shoot the Raptors down in time (or even better, multiple groups of Raptors and NeghVars due to premature cube detonation) then I will just spam repulsors and gravwells to give the PUGs time to get their destruction back on schedule. It gets the job done and that's all I care about.
Some CSE PUGs require 4 to guard Kang and 1 to shoot probes but a science ship with a veteran pilot has a better chance of saving them than a cruiser.
So how about a scientific cruiser next to combine both functions? Odyssey
