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.
