The thing is that Veraticus is right in his assessment, we could afford a slight boost to bam damage and even to their boost skills and it still wouldn't go anywhere near putting escorts out of a job, in fact I think if you escort pilots (even the best of you) if you were totally honest would LIKE to see a cruiser sit out of your way and still do some nice supporting damage, in fact as an tac in an escort I would LOVE this in an STF, ISE generators would be easier to manage as the team wouldn't be waiting so long for the cruiser to catch up.

Also as an engineer in a cruiser I'd feel more useful to a team, not only could I then dish out some fair heals AND not get in the way of you escorts because I can deal some nice support damage without having to get up close and personal.

as much as you would love to say I'm wrong this would boost team DPS, which happens to be the most important thing in the game, and would give you escort pilots the ability to relax in PvE as the team wouldn't need you to deal ALL the damage thus when you do do that awesome damage dealing thing you do (alpha striking a KASE gateway and bringing it from 40% to 0% in a matter of seconds, yes, been there, done that) you are more appreciated for it and it would keep you on your toes in PvP as suddenly them cruisers , who I admit don't have the best pilots, would be all the more damgerous.

So if anything this is win win for eveyone
