Bareel, Bareel, Bareel. First off, why isn't your name Barrel? I kept wanting to type that. And before any of your discussion can take place YOU must agree that a hull type (ie. cruiser) will and should always be underpowered when its not used according to its design intent. Clearly a sportscar is overpowered compared to a pickup truck in a race... but the question is why are you racing against a sportscar with a pickup truck

Just a few minutes ago I took my Engi cruiser for a spin. I parked its phat cruiser a$$ next to a gate and tanked it and some spheres, then I sat on a Tac cube tanking it. I know from personal experience that my better equipped escort can't hope to do that. Not even close. If you don't want to tank or heal, don't fly a cruiser without understanding that you will not be as good as everything else at THEIR specialization. Why insist on suffering with a type of ship you clearly don't want to fly? Why do that to yourself? If you think escorts are really so much better then fly one and have fun.
