The problem is that the "glass cannons" are not "glass". We do not have a supposed balance of "high DPS, low survivability" vs "low DPS, high survivability", because escorts don't have low survivability.

Don't listen to people whining about blowing up, they'll blow up in whatever ship class they're in anyway because they have suboptimal builds. Listen instead to the people who answer "I can tank Tac Cubes fine in my escort, what are you talking about?" They're the ones who are properly making use of the system, which is how you see if the system works or not.

As a min/maxing math geek I haven't flown in a cruiser for ages, so don't bother trying to dismiss this as "cruiser whining".

"Don't let them promote you. Don't let them transfer you. Don't let them do anything that takes you off the bridge of that ship, because while you're there... you can make a difference." - James T. Kirk
