Just as a car maker won't pull the bucket seats or 4-point harness out of the made-for-track-day sports car you just bought because the people who bought the everyday version for half the price complained that you were too fast or loud, it would be in no one's interest to go about nerfing things people paid for unless they were literally game-breaking. And no, breaking PVP is not a valid concern in this regard.
Instead of nerfing escorts, cruisers and SVs should get buffs and while more and better content should be debuted. That's actually less of a pipe dream than demanding nerfs, and benefits everyone as well as the game, rather than just the dissatisfied minority.
