Put an ENG in a escort is not a good team dynamic because you are sacrificing all your strengths for 60 - 75% strength of an TAC in an escort.
The reverse is the same for an TAC in a cruiser. The TAC may get the numbers, but half of what his full potential is in an escort, and he just cannot match the defensive capability of a engineer in a cruiser support role.
A tactical in the right cruiser can be real nasty so i disagree about no tacs in cruisers....
"No, there is no real problem with P2W in STO. Obviously, if you fight against someone with an equal level of skill in the game, better equipment will give you an edge. But usually, it is the skill level that determines the outcome, not the P2W." - Sprinkles
