Cruisers as a whole are severly underpowered in DPS
PVE is a DPS game period
There is no need for a tank , I tank quite well in my Escort and deal 3x as much DPS as a cruiser does. I also heal quite well so much in fact i usually send Heals to cruisers
PvP is a seperate issue with its own problems
In order to compete cruisers in general need a DPS increase there are many ways to do it , Escorts arnt overpowered Cruisers are just underpowered.
With the slow turn rate there is no reason dps from a cruiser should not equal a escort except for escort captions who think they should have a superior firepower when in lore and history and plain common sense they should have MUCH less.
My Engineer flys the Fleet excelsior it has 4 weapon consoles and does really good DPS it is a welcome part of the fleet STF team any time i take it out , The Galaxy Class however is a liability to the team and not wanted on a team because its DPS is so poor it cant be a positive member of the team. 2 weapons consoles along with the worst bridge officer layout seal its fate when in fact it is a much newer better armed ship then 2 Excelsiors were .
STO Devs needs to watch a few episodes of star trek i sopose
Jellico....Engineer.....Stargazer KDF Tac
Saphire.. Science.....Ko'el Rom Kdf Tac
Leva........Tactical.....Mailu KDF Sci
JJ-Verse will never be Canon or considered Lore...It will always be JJ-Verse
