Yeah... when the game was balanced and escorts were really potent IF flown according to their hit&run role.

You mean when beams didnt miss most times, BFaw was the second better Beam OVerload used by spiraling packs of zombie cruisers? Or the time when SNB spamming scicorts ruled ?
I found those particular periods no more balanced than we have now, just different bugs and mechanics being exploited differently.
