No, no, no, didn't you know? The battlecloak and the universal boffs are 'OP', so they gotta nerf the heck out of the ship class and ensure that they can't match a Federation escort straight up without very specialized builds. Even then they'll whine about it, because good players are able to overcome the limitations to a degree (see: the tactics used by Zirac and thissler, along with Minimax's sci BoP setups). The Fleet Hoh'sus is an improvement, I'll grant them that, but it's still not that great. The universal boffs aren't the wondrous OP layout they used to be, now that the Federation has enough escorts and science ships to cover every conceivable layout someone would want to run on a Hegh'ta or B'rel Retrofit. The battecloak isn't that much of an improvement over a regular one (mostly just allows for an earlier escape).
