in pvp you have a case, but for pve - which i'm pretty sure more people engage in over pvp - cruisers are not in a bad place at all...

...that is if they would stop giving escorts cruiser-levels of hull and shield mods.
I know what you're saying, I mostly use cruiser/battlecruisers on my chars.
But, you see, that part in red was what I was thinking when I posted that. That and the diminishing results of eng.consoles compared to the increasing buff of the tac.consoles.

In a game where DPS rules and healing/surviving/debuffing abilities are neglected, you get more for your run from an escort, especially when your escort can survive almost as good as a cruiser.

I don't restrict my game that way, I play what seems fun for me and I take ships I like. Happens for me to like cruisers besides the downsides.
That doesn't change the fact thet the game mechanic should be tweaked so the role of the cruiser becomes more noble in STO.
