I don't know what game you're playing, but my cruiser already uses APO and APD.

Also, I don't know if you're familiar with the concept of uptime (all you new kids and teenyboopers that never did proper WoW raids never seem to take it into consideration) but an escort ziping around like a bee is not going to be doing much of anything DPS-wise, while a cruiser can simply do circles around its target never letting up the damage.

But, if you insist that escorts are the best tanks, feel free to fly on and try serious tanking.

P.S. If your cruiser isn't ranking up the threat talent you're doing it wrong!

P.S. x 2. If you're a cruiser enthusiast that STILL feels wronged might I direct you to the KDF cruiser selection? Their cruisers are generally acknowledged to be the best and more fun to fly.
