I'm seeing escorts outrunning torpedos and laser targeting, not just for a little bit but for the duration of a battle. They can fly in tight circles and fly in reverse faster than my cruiser can go forward. There is no other type of ship doing that.
What is Laser Targeting? Are we talking Beams? You can't outrun a beam, but they can miss.

If your seeing Escorts dodge that much stuff the person doing the shooting must have no Accuracy what so ever. As I said in the other thread, a Torpedo hits or Misses, only destructible Torpedoes can be outrun like High Yield Plasma. And I've outrun those in a Cruiser. EPS Flows, Set to high Engine power and Evasive Maneuvers.

I've never seen an escort fly backwards faster than another ship has flown forwards. I've seen an Escort pushed back super fast with Tractor Beam Repulsors ruining the shots of the guys team mates and allowing the Escort to live.
