Sorry, I love cruisers, and wasted so much actual money buyng them. But, the fact is a newb in an escort beats a newb in a cruiser as a wignman in elite missions/fleet missions.

My last pug was 5 escorts, and there was no need for a 10% rule on ISE, We blew everything in record time and it was over ridiculously fast. 1 Patrol escort, 1 MVAE, 2 Defiants, and a Raptor.

Take the same situation only make it 5 cruisers, which Ive done before in a pug, and forget making the optional, just pray you'll actually finish sometime that day. lol

That is the problem. An escort makes the difference no matter what group your with, no matter the number in the group, 1,2,3,4,5.
A cruiser or Sci ship. not the same can be said.

I see STO's current state as being ruled by Escorts and Carriers. The Armitage is the perfect Hybrid, that I have yet to buy, but will soon. I run 3 toons and wanted them all to play diferrently, but thats just adding to the grind by sticking them in a ship other then a EScort or Carrier.
